In order to receive add-on updates through your Dashboard, you need to activate your license key.
Finding Your License Key
To find your license key, first go to your account.
Inside your account, look for the “Purchase History” table and click “View Licenses”.
This will take you to a page which holds the license keys to your purchase.
Now that we have our license key copied, we can navigate to “Appearance > GeneratePress” in our Dashboards.
On the right side, you’ll see a box labeled “Updates”.
Paste your license key into the correct field, and click the “Update” button.
Problem activating? See this article.
Sometimes the update process through your Dashboard won’t work due to server restrictions. In that case, you can manually update.
- Download a fresh copy of your add-on through your account.
- Deactivate and delete the current copy from your WordPress site. You won’t lose any of your settings, but it’s never a bad idea to do a database backup first.
- Upload and activate the fresh copy you downloaded in step 1.
