Updating Premium Plugins

When you buy Ulrike, you will get premium plugins such as Advanced Custom Fields PRO for free. Please note that you will get the full-version of the plugin the same as when you purchased it as a standalone plugin. The only drawback is that you will not be able to receive support and automatic updates from the plugin’s author, rest-assured that we will always update the plugins in our theme’s updates. If you want automatic updates and support from the plugin’s author you need to purchase it separately (this is absolutely optional).

Before you start updating, you need to get the latest files from ThemeForest. Choose the Installable WordPress file only option and extract the downloaded zip file and then save the folder in a safe place.

To update the plugins manually:

·         Advanced Custom Fields PRO

  1. Deactivate and delete the existing version of Advanced Custom Fields PRO plugin within Plugins > Installed Plugins.
  2. Go to Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin then click on Choose File button in the new page.
  3. Navigate to the extracted folder of the file you’ve downloaded before and select the advanced custom fields pro file in Ulrike\dahz-modules\plugins\advanced-custom-fields-pro.zip
  4. Start the installation by clicking on Install Now button.
  5. Activate the plugin and your Advanced Custom Fields PRO is up to date.

NOTE: Removing the plugin to upload the updated one shouldn’t delete your Custom Fields, but you can export the Custom Fields on your computer to have a backup copy.
