How To Update Theme Forest WordPress Themes & Codecanyon Plugins


In this video to show you how to update your
themeforest your codecanyon themes and plug-ins that you may have purchased and added to your
website now the problem with applying themes or plug-ins from themeforest will steam forcing
CodeCanyon the problem with buying it from them is there’s no real easy way or obviously
easy way of updating them so when you download the theme or the plug-in you add it to your
WordPress site it doesn’t automatically tell you when there’s an update you click a button
and it updates and people don’t realize that Envato who owns ThemeForest and CodeCanyon has actually made a very easy way to do this but it’s not well publicized so I’m
going to show you exactly how to do it and by following the instructions in this video you
will be able to update your ThemeForest themes your CodeCanyon plug-ins all automatically
when there’s an update you’ll be able to do it automatically from within WordPress so
Envato has made is something called the in Envato toolkit and what we first need
to do is download and install this Envato toolkit now if they wanted to make it easy
for you they put a nice big link somewhere on their site but I’ve never found that so
if you went to Google and you typed in Envato toolkit you will eventually find us all
to put a link on where to download this down below if you’re watching this on YouTube or
if you’re on my website will be a download link below is essentially just a plug-in so
if you did that search you would come right here to it it looks very technical it’s called
github and this is where most developers of anything they store all their code so it’s
very geeky all right but if you did find this page and you scroll down a bit there is all
this information about it it’s actually was renamed it Envato market instead of Envato
toolkit and when you scroll down here is his installation and you’ll find the actual download
link so I will give you a direct link to this download if Envato changes that are just
notify me and I’ll update the link and all it says is that I downloaded and install it
like you would any other plug-in so working to do that was going to do that right now
as a matter fact so to log into a WordPress site here on the dashboard is going to go
to add new just your typical plug-in installation, click upload plug-in and I’ve already downloaded
it so many just drag-and-drop it right there I’m going to click install now and then I I’m going to go ahead
and then click on activate plug-in and now we have this new link right here it says in
vital market now the prior method of doing this was with a plug-in called the Envato
toolkit and it was a little more simple to use it would involve logging in and creating
some kind of a key copy and pasted and they change that now it’s called in bottle market
to industry there some business reasons why they done that all we have to do now is follow
the instructions right here to get it connected to our ThemeForest account or are Envato
account so all we have to do is go here or scroll down and we need to click on this link
that says generate a personal token so I’m a go-ahead in open that in the staff here
so I’m already logged in if you are not its can ask you for your login so you would just
put in your ThemeForest login if that’s what you use for purchasing or your CodeCanyon
login a lot of times it’s the same for both and that’s how it is for me summary logged
in and it’s gonna be at the screen that says create a token now all we need to do is create
a token and give it some silly name so I’m going to name it WPCrafter it doesn’t I think
really matter at all it says pick something cool short and catchy and then there’s these
permissions that are going to be given to this token name now I would not adjust any
that link already prefilled it out in the ones that are needed in order to enable automatic
updates for you and then go ahead and check this box is as I read and I understood the
and agreed to the terms conditions whatever click on create token and then it’s gonna
go ahead and the screen screens gonna pop up and it’s going to give you your API key
which all you need to do is highlight and copy so I made a copy that into my clipboard
and then I’m in a check this box to confirm that I did put it in my clipboard and then
you click on this white button here that says got it okay so now you have this API key in
your clipboard you might want to save that on a notepad someplace if you’re using your
purchased products on other websites so that you don’t have to create it keep creating
API keys you got it now okay so I go back to my WordPress site and you just pasted in
here in enemy click on save changes okay so now that I have saved my changes it is showing
me the different themes and plug-ins that I have purchased on this account now if I
had say for instance right here I have the salient theme that I purchased if that was
the theme that was installed on this website and it noticed there was an older version
it would give me an option to update it but right here you can see I can basically click
on the install button for any of these themes that I purchased before and it will install
it for you and that this is actually an easier method to install a purchased theme or plug-in
that you have from Envato is just to do it through the Envato market plug
and I think that’s kinda what they’re going after is making it a lot simpler and more
easy for you so when I scroll down here these are a bunch of the themes that I have purchased
let’s go on plug-ins I haven’t purchased a lot of different plug-ins just a very few
and then there’s also the settings tab where you can change that API key that you just
generated and this is going to be such an easy way for you to now keep your purchase
themes and plug-ins that you purchase from ThemeForest and CodeCanyon fully updated
and one last thing I know I’ve interchangeably said Envato ThemeForest CodeCanyon
let me go back over to ThemeForest right here this is ThemeForest website now ThemeForest owned by a company called Envato and Envato owned ThemeForest CodeCanyon and
all these other sites that you see listed here at the top so if you have a login for
ThemeForest is gonna work on all of these different sites that they own it’s their family
of sites where you can purchase software you can purchase video stock video and audio graphics
a whole bunch of things you can purchase from them so what I’m saying ThemeForest or CodeCanyon I’m really just talking about using your Envato log in and
don’t one last thing if you are gonna purchase anything from ThemeForest or CodeCanyon
head on over to my website and click on the recommended tab and I’ve got a link that will
take you over there when you do purchase after having clicked on my link they give me a couple
dollars and what’s nice about that as I can use it to purchase things that I can then

  1. Thanks a lot man. I've been looking 3 or 4 tutorials before yours. And this method is by far away the easiest I found.

  2. I purchased a plug in through them for the Visual Composer. However I have tried several different ways of linking the Mega Menu with Visual Composer. I'm trying not to just link the page in Apperance because you can't use the Mega Menu in Apperance for the horizontal drop down that one is only vertical with subdomains. You lose the amount of elements in the row. How do I create a Menu in Mega Menu drop down Top Bar Header without using it in the theme options or Apperance. I have tried also in Pages. I noticed you can not use both. When I contacted the theme developers that have it built into the theme they tell me to deactivate the Wp Bakery Plug-In that they conflict with another so I have no idea how to add a Logo without losing my Mega Menu. When I go into Visual Composer and enable it I'm stuck linking it from Categories.

  3. Do I even need to purchase a theme though because Visual Composer is all custom built anyhow, and most theme's just add it to them. I already purchased it by itself through WP Bakery. I don't know how to create a menu using Visual Composer any suggestions on it's own? I am currently creating one in the pages section, I created individual rows in the row settings to break up the individual rows to be linked to create a top bar and header section for the language translation as well as currency converter since they are added through a plug in I uploaded to file manager in the public html. I also uploaded the plug in the widget section in apperance added it to the sidebar but it only shows there so not sure how any header and footer sections seperate from the individual page using a mega menu.

  4. With most themes they require you to copy a shortcode into header PHP or the you drag and drop the widget into the sidebar menu. That just goes there not to the Header the Footer is done the same way, so I don't see how the theme helps with that at all.

  5. I do not get a .zip file when I download from the site? I am trying to follow your instructions but can't get past this point.

  6. I recently bought a bundle pack on CodeCanyon and got an email saying that there's an available update. Since I'm quite new to the whole WordPress thing, I found your video to find out how I could update it. I installed the envato-market.zip plugin and all I got was a theme that I bought about a month ago but not the bundle pack I want to update.

    Is there a reason for this? How can I install the update that I got? Thanks!

  7. Hi,I use to watch your videos from day 1 wn i started learning wordpress.Thanks for lot of information that you put.Recently i have purchased a Denso by Apus Theme.Kindly suggest me how to go with as iam not able to work with.

  8. Hi,Thanku for your suggestion.Denso by Apus Theme has given 6 months support.What exactly is that.Do we need to renew after 6 months by paying money to ThemeForest?Plz clarify if possible.

  9. Fabulous…totally saved me a huge headache in updating themes and plugins from Themeforest! Thanks so much!!!!

  10. I followed all the instruction here, and the Envato Market shows I have an update, but when I click on the update nothing happens. What do I do?

  11. Fantastic job on the video. Was a lifesaver. So weird how Envato buries things on the website. I was trying to figure this out for a good two hours with no success. I was successfully able to update my Betheme template. Thanks again! Two Thumbs Up!

  12. I followed the directions to install the Envato Market plugin. I set up (and verified) a single use token for my site's active theme – 15zine 3.0.2. A version 3.2.2 is available but the Envato plugin doesn't provide an "update" button, just an "install" button. Any idea why this would happen? Thx.

  13. Thanks Adam for this excellent tip. It seems very convinient, but I have a problem with one plugin. Envato market list it among the ones I own, but the the only action allowed is "Install". This is a problem since it's already installed on this website. Would you have a suggestion? If not, does Envato provide support about the Envato Market plugin? Thanks

  14. Great video! I just bought my first theme, and got an E-mail from the Envato, that there was an update avilable, and couldn't find anything about installing the update. I made a search on YouTube, and found your video. It really helped me, and I now know how to do it in the future ๐Ÿ™‚
    But… sorry to say, but when I click on the UPDATE botton nothing happens ๐Ÿ™
    What to do ?

  15. Thanks so much, like your other videos this helped out big time, especially for a novice like me

  16. OMG, Crafter you are the man!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! It's been 4 years and i haven't been able to update my themes from Themeforest until now. I will get the notifications, go to their site and there was nothing there. And the authors were of no use when you need help for this….

  17. but di not forget to go to your account and download the new version of the theme beacause you wil need to upload the new version of some plugins other way it will crash

  18. Nice video wp crafter as a subscriber of ur channel i have benefits alots from ur video so a big thanks from me. Wish i know before that u would get something when we purchased from ur site n m so sorry for that i have purchased a theme from themforest without knowing about ur site. Anyway next time i will buy it through ur site. I bought a newmag theme recently so what i want to ask u is once we bought there how long it can be used or do we need to pay theme yearly.?

  19. Please so some video about codecanyon.
    How to make product of codecanyon like with the code html css js…. and the documentation file and upload process.

  20. Hey, it looks like people are still doing it this way. is it still the most straightforward way? I have a betheme that i need to update, but i've also got to deregister/switch to a new puchase key (we lost track of what our envato themeforest user id was), and i'm trying to figure out if that different user & purchase key will be a complication.

  21. That's great, thank you so much for this. There seems to be an issue when the theme is updated. All theme style changes seems to disappear. It goes back to the original theme colours. Any ideas?

  22. Hi, I installed but I have this message, "envato-market Stylesheet is missing." Any idea? Did it on CP and WP, but no luck. Thanks.

  23. Wow! Thank you so much for sharing great video i have been struggling with the updates on the themes that in purchased from themeforest. thank you very much its all fixed now

  24. i noticed this video was uploaded over 2 years ago , i want to know if i can still follow these instruction or if there is new way to do now ? please let me know.. thank you

  25. The best way to update any Envato themes or any WordPress additions is to install the Envato Market plugin, which comes with many of the Premium themes available. Then, all you have to do is go to your dashboard and click on the Envato sign on the left-hand side toolbar. In there, you will see a list of your purchased products, and if it is time to update, it will say that right at the top of that themes box. Click on update and it will load and then say successfully updated. This certainly saves a lot of time rather than having to do it manually every time there is an update. Hop that helps!

  26. I purchased theme. That one one licence. I used theme on my website but some reason I shot down . can I used that theme on my new domain. How to change licence .Please reply

  27. Wow this man is superman! Thank you very much you safe my life, glad to be the 300 video liker ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. Thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much! I've been fighting with this for a long time! Question for you: If I am using this same theme across other web sites can I use the same token key for all of them?

  29. Amazing Video, I just bought my first ever theme and it wasn't cheap, but It was version 1.0, the one advertised was version 2.0 and I couldn't update it because from what I can see, they have only got version 1.0 available for DownLoad. I followed your instructions and It still did not show me an available Update. Did I just get scammed? I mean the version 1.0 doesn't work at all. 8 out of 10 of the recommended plug-ins will cause fatal errors. What Am I suppose to do? is this even Normal.. because if it is, I think I should probably give up on making my first website.

  30. I done all you did in the video but my plugin which is already installed before this Envato Market plugin now shows up in the Envato Market plugin and has the option install but not update. I check on the plugin and itยดs not up to date. But in the market the plugin shows the new version but I have to install this. Do Iยดve to delete my old plugin and reinstall it, if so is there anyway to save the settings from that plugin? The plugin im trying to update is WordPress GDPR by welaunch.
