How to Update the Revolution Slider/WPBakery Page Builder plugin

We don’t provide license key of the premium plugin (WPBakery Page Builder or Revolution Slider) in the download package, thus you can’t find it in your package downloads (We bought the extended license of this plugin, for more details in Term & Policy here: https://codecanyon.net/licenses/terms/extended) It means that when these premium plugins are packaged with our themes:

  •  Support is limited
  • Auto-updating functionality is not included

However, don’t worry! We will update our themes to run follow WPBakery Page Builder/Revolution Slider updates. This guide will cover how you can update the Slider Revolution plugin (similar to WPBakery Page Builder plugin)

Note: DO NOT uninstall/reinstall the plugin, as that would also delete your previously built sliders. Please follow this instruction to save previously built sliders once the update process is complete.

1. Find the version of the plugin you’re currently using that is the latest version or not
