Hello and thanks for your response!

We put Envato’s IP in whitelist and now working and i do not see any error message but my theme U-Design is not at the latest version and i do not see any update for this.

I must wait or i can do something else to fix it this?

Thank you.

the following 3 permissions should be selected from the list of permission available on the Token page.

  1. View and search Envato sites (checked by default)
  2. Download the user’s purchased items
  3. List purchases the user has made

Hope this will help you.


It is allready like this.

Please go to theme page and compare the version you have and published in themeforest. if version are different then you should get notification about the update. You can ask theme author about the update process.

Otherwise you can download the update version from Envato Market Downloads page and update manually using ftp.

Note: Better to keep a full backup before doing the update.


At this time i have installed the 3.4.18 and now is out the 4.0.0 but i do not see the note for auto update.

I know how can i install it manually but this is not help me. :frowning:

Please ask theme author about the auto update process for their theme. ask theme is there any extra permissions need for their theme auto update?

You can also check theme documentation to find the update process.

Ok i will asking the Author.

Thank you very much for your time! :slight_smile:
