Hi, sorry for the late messages, I fell asleep after my initial post.
The files I download from Envato Elements come in a zip file.
example (plugin in question) :
With the other elements wordpress plugins I have downloaded and installed from Envato Elements I am able to upload and install the zip file completely intact with the “elements-filename” prefix.
This plugin however, is not accepted by wordpress UNLESS I unzip it, and install the file:
All the folders included in the original zip file (including the “licensing” folder) are not installed with the plugin. Is this creating an issue? I know that removing folders from a zip file may cause some activation problems, because the original files were unzippped and separated any activation/registration code scripts.
