How To Update The Premium Plugins
Please note that Avada does include updates for our Premium Sliders (Revolution Slider and Layer Slider), however, this does not mean that you will receive an individual license for these Premium Sliders. Due to Envato's licensing rules, we can only issue updates for these plugins when we issue a theme update. Please continue reading below for further information on the process of how these updates are given.
Premium Sliders Update Process
When you purchase a theme that bundles Revolution Slider and Layer Slider, such as Avada, you get to use these Premium Sliders with the theme. However, your purchase of Avada does not give you an individual license for the Revolution Slider and Layer Slider to use or download as you wish.
Due to license rules, we can only issue new plugin updates when we issue new theme updates. So anytime Avada is updated, the latest plugin for the Revolution Slider and Layer Slider will be included. This is according to the licensing rules enforced by Envato, and is something out of our control and must abide by.
In addition, this also ensures that we fully test the plugin to make sure there are no critical bugs that will conflict with our own update. This is a benefit that we also test any version we give with our theme before our customers get it.
Plugin Installation Issues
If for any reason you're unable to update / download plugins which are provided by Avada, there is an alternative method for getting the plugin files directly. Just go to your Support Desk, then switch to the Product Registration tab. From there, fill in the text field with your Personal Token Key and click 'Submit Code'. You’ll see a success notification and buttons to download the Revolution Slider, Layer Slider, Fusion Builder and Fusion Core plugins.
If you have any trouble with the above steps, please create a support ticket and one of our support members will assist you further.
How To Get Auto Plugin Updates
Due to the license rules stated above, the only way to get automatic plugin updates is to purchase the plugins individually through CodeCanyon. Doing this provides you with a regular license for the plugin and a purchase code that can be used for Automatic Theme Updates.
