I bought the Envato JointUp WordPress theme and after installing it I find this plugin named “WP Bakery” needs to be activated. But the problem is: I cannot activate without paying for the plugin – separately from already paying for Envato JointUp WordPress theme.
I’ll be happy to clear this for you.
Theme Bundled plugins do not have their own licenses. This means they cannot be activated mean registered for updates. So you can safely ignore any plugin activation/registration messages.
All bundled plugins update responsibility is the theme’s author. Just always download the theme latest version to get latest update plugins and update bundled plugin manually.
If you really want to auto update features by one click then you have to purchase individual license for the plugin(s) and you have to registere/activated the license.
