How to update plugin to newer version manually

Newer versions of our plugins have automatic update capability built in and you don't have to worry about this provided that:

  • You have active item support for this plugin
  • You have enabled automatic updates on your installation by entering a Purchase Code

If that is not the case, you may need to manually update your plugin by following these steps:

  1. Download a new version from CodeCanyon (pick the "Installable WordPress file only" option)
  2. Deactivate and delete the plugin from your site (making a copy of the old version is a good idea though)
  3. Click Add New, Upload Plugin and upload the file that you just downloaded
  4. Activate the newly uploaded plugin

This process is generally safe - your settings or data will not vanish.

Alternatively, you can replace old plugin folder with a new one via FTP.
