I'm trying to update the WPBakery Page Builder, but I receive this error message "To receive automatic updates license activation is required. Please visit Settings to activate your WPBakery Page Builder."
There I come to http://support.wpbakery.com/activate-license and there is the message "It seems that you do not have any valid license for WPBakery Page Builder. What does it mean? It may be so that you got WPBakery Page Builder by purchasing WordPress theme which does not grant you with direct license for WPBakery Page Builder."
What do I have to do?
Since WPBakery Page Builder is coming as a bonus / free with the theme, users don't get to have their own purchase codes, but it's not required, assuming you need it to be able to update the plugin. The option to activate a license was left open for those who already have a license.
We always make sure to include the latest version when we release theme updates. When a new update is available, you'll see it under The Retailer > Plugins. This is where you go to update the plugins coming with the theme.
