Premium plugins such as Revolution Slider, WPBakery Page Builder and ACF may request a purchase code during use. This code is used to provide direct updates and support from the plugins creator and as such is not required or supplied for use with our themes. We don’t have the right to resell purchase codes of these plugins, but we have the right to bundle plugins within themes.
This is safe to do on production sites.
Our frameworks have been carefully create to ensure your running the latest compatible version at all times, so you have no need to worry. Please note that we manually update our bundled plugins after thorough testing as some plugin updates have bugs that we are unhappy to ship to our customers, you will receive updates when we are happy with the plugin.
If you truly require auto-updates from these plugins you’ll need to purchase a personal license, please note this is the same for each theme on ThemeForest that bundles plugins. You can update premium plugins manually using these quick steps https://docs.vlthemes.com/knowbase/how-to-update-a-premium-plugins/.
