Visual Composer - can't edit my sites. Forcing me to buy a new license

Over the years i bought many themes here. Today I wanted to edit one of my sites but I cant because my Visual Composer from WPBakery is not working. I tried to put in the API key from the Envato Market but it still doesnt work. What does this mean? Do I now have to buy a license now? Is there a way around? None of this was mentioned when I bought the themes. Please help. Thanks.

Did you buy a theme that came with the plugin or did you buy the plugin separately?

the plugin came with the theme. thanks for replying bud.

You can’t register/auto update bundled plugins.

If you go to your downloads page and download the the latest version of the theme it should include the latest version of the plugins too

Thank you so much for the quick reply, Charlie. That’s a good answer. I hope this would solve the problem, if they still have it in the download. Happy Thanksgiving bud.


Usually it’s enough to go to Appearance >> Install Plugins section in your WP dashboard, and it will display a list of plugins bundled with template, so you can install/activate them in single click.
