WP Bakery - update of plugin

I have purchased the Stephanie King theme via envato. The WP Bakery needs updating (I dont know if related but my drop down menus no longer work on mobiles). It wont auto update and everytime I try it says I dont have an account.

What do I need to do? Who needs to update the WP Bakery Plugin?

I have found this link but I am not great with tech so dont know who needs to install this as it came with the theme.


thanks so much,


I’ll be happy to clear this for you.

Theme Bundled plugins do not have their own licenses. This means they cannot be activated for updates.

All bundled plugins update responsibility is the theme’s author. So you can safely ignore any plugin activation messages. Just always download the theme latest version to get latest update plugins.
