Keeping your theme up to date is very important, because we’re releasing all kinds of updates on a regular basis. In this article – we’ll show you how you can easily update your theme with Envato Market plugin. You will also get automatic update notifications and be able to install your themes directly from WordPress dashboard.
This is going to work with ThemeForest themes and CodeCanyon plugins.
Set up the plugin
1. Download and Install Envato Market plugin from here: bit.ly/envato-wordpress-plugin
2. Click here to go to build.envato.com – this link will generate the correct API Key permissions.
An API is needed so that Envato can identify that it’s really you trying to access your account, without directly using or storing your password, so don’t share the key with anyone.
Automatically Update Themes or Plugins
Now items purchased on Envato will work exactly like regular (WordPress.org) themes and plugins. When there is a plugin or theme update available – a notification appear, and you’ll be able to update directly, without leaving your dashboard.
