You’ve asked for it. We listened. We had it in our TODO list for quite some time, but today we deliver. You can now update all your premium CSSIgniter themes and plugins directly from your WordPress dashboard.
Just head over to the Downloads page, select the “Site Updates” tab, and download the CSSIgniter Updater plugin. Once you install activate it, go to Dashboard → Settings → CSSIgniter Updater, copy the Site URL and paste it into the appropriate field in the Downloads page. You will get a “key” which you need to paste back into the plugin’s settings, along with your username. Press “Save”. Done!
You’ll now get update notifications for your CSSIgniter products, just like any other wordpress.org theme and plugin. Got a multisite installation? No problem, it works there too; just network-enable the plugin and configure it once (as a Super Admin).
Do you have multiple websites? No problem. Just do the same for all your WordPress installations. Has your support contract ended with your client? Just remove his website from the “Site Updates” tab, and (s)he no longer get advantage of your Developer license.
You’ll have to be an active CSSIgniter customer to actually get any updates; after all, it’s just a different way of getting your zip files. But the update notifications will keep working even if your subscription has ended. This way, you will always be informed about the state of your themes.
You can find a step by step guide in our Knowledge Base (with screenshots) to guide you through the short process of setting it up.
That’s it! Enjoy your easy updates!
Bought a theme (Muzak) on ThemeForest and even though I registered for a free account on your website, it won’t let me download that updater plugin… Any direct link? Any chance it becomes available in the WP plugin repository?
The Dashboard Updates plugin is only available for themes hosted on and sold through our website. To get a similar experience for Themeforest themes you can use envato’s own updater plugin. You can get it find https://envato.com/market-plugin/ along with details on how to set it up.
