wpbakery update


Since a moment now, I can't update wpbakery, it asks for a license and it's bugging and won't work anymore...

Thank you for your help,

    Hey Sophie :-)

    I see you wrote again while I was checking your topic :-)

    If WpBakery blocks updating it to the newest version bundled in the theme, please deactivate it, and then follow the normal update procedure.

    1. Deactivate WpBakery plugin.
    2. Go to Appearance → Install Plugins
    3. Update WpBakery from there.

    Hope that helps.

    With kind regards.
  • Hi !

    Thank you for your answer.

    When I deactivate wpbakery, I go to Plugins (nothing in Appearance) -> Install plugins and all I see is Elementor, not wpbackery. So I reactivated it, and then I go to Install plugin, I update and it says it needs a license.

    OK, I see.

    So in this case, you will have to do a manual update of the plugin.

    Go to this link and download the plugin.

    Next go to your admin panel → Plugins → Add new → Upload plugin → add plugin that you have downloaded from the above link.

    Before doing this, deactivate wpBakery just in case it would block updating again.

    With kind regards.
