How to update your Premium Plugins

Some of our themes include premium plugins (ProgressionPlayer, Revolution Slider, Visual Composer etc.).  Many of these plugins may prompt you for a “license”.  You can ignore this as bundled plugins do not come with an additional license.  Due to Envato’s licensing rules, we can only issue updates for these plugins when we issue a theme update (https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/213762463-Bundled-Plugins). Please continue reading below for further information on the process of how these updates are given.

*Make sure to save a backup of your site before updating.
