Question regarding upgrade keys
Posted 28 September 2010 - 03:21 PM
1) Is the first "key" I receive good for all my plugins, or do I have to get a different key for each?
2) Why, after getting a key, do some of the plugins show a key icon with the word "Licenses" next to it, while others show the key icon next to the words, "Manage Licenses," as though I still need to get a key?
3) Why, after logging in and pasting in the key that I had just received, do I get the message: "Invalid license key, it has expired, or it is already in use. Please verify the key or contact support for assistance."
If someone can just run me through this procedure I'd appreciate it. It'll be one less problem out of the barrel.

You have to have a seperate key for each individual plugin.
It depends what versions you are running on the plugins. When WP 3.0 came out it broke our updating system. So if any plugins are versions before that time then they will need to be updated manually. You can just download our free easy theme & plugin updater. It can be found <a class="sfcode" href="http://pluginbuddy.com/free-wordpress-plugins/" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">here</a>. Just download the plugin at the members area then upload via WP dashboard and select yes to upgrade when prompted to.
There are some plugin walkthrough videos on our youtube channel check it out!

The problem I ran into is as follows:
I successfully downloaded the latest version of Builder, and uploaded the zip file. However, I did not see a button for step #5 on the above page, which reads, "Select â€śYesâ€ť from the â€śUpgrade existing theme?â€ť option."
So my only option was to upload it as a new theme (I'm assuming.) Consequently, when I went to upload the upgraded version of Builder I got the following message:
Destination folder already exists. /home/jat1956/public_html/wp-content/themes/Builder/
Theme install failed.
Can you tell me where I went wrong? Also, please confirm that by doing these steps I will be able to take care of the initial question of upgrading plugins.
