Very nice plugin. Can the .zip be selected from the media library so i can manage it there? And can i protect the .zip so only “real buyers” can download? :)

Wow, thank you for the fast reply! Perhaps you can include a proxy file for example dl-file.php that checks for a purchase code for a given username and then allows to download the file? The user of the plugin must fill in his username and purchasecode but i think this is no problem. :) I am very interested in an wordpress plugin updater but i need to protect the plugin file…

Hello,

Problem is that WordPress just ask url of the zip file and handle rest all things itself. I’m thinking to provide a shortcode which can display Envanto authentication form and once purchase code and username is verified, user will be able to download it but in that case, we can’t say it automatic updates.

Thanks

We appreciate your idea. We have around 13 premium products and we needed a system to manage all so we created this product. Definitely we also like to protect our zip but this is not possible right now.

When I’m on the plugin installation page (plugin-install.php) I get a notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$slug in class.wp-auto-plugin-update.php on line 86.

Hello,

I was travelling last 2 days so couldn’t reply. It seems that WP DEBUG is true in your wp-config.php file. I’m checking it my end and releasing a new version.

Thanks

Hi, i’ve just purchased the plugin but…has no documentation?? Could you please send me a link to the documentation. I’ve just got php files and that’s all.

Thanks.

Hello,

add a “Check Updates” link – I think you can already do this by clicking ‘Check Again’ button on ‘Dashboard’ -> ‘Updates’ page.

Can you use

tag right now for the line break. we’re checking it more and will update you.

Thanks

Yes, i knew that. But i’ve seen many plugins having the option (a link) to “Check Updates” (suppose that i send an email broadcast telling about a new update and people don’t see it because WordPress didn’t check for updates yet). Adding that link would give an idea to the user that (if he doesn’t see something new), he can force the check of updates. Other than that, it’s a fanstastic plugin and works like a charm. Thanks!

Hello,

Definitely we’ll work on this as we’re integrating envanto licence validation in next version. Thanks for your valuable feedback.

Thanks

hello, does this plugin work with Child Themes?

Hello.

Please check it now. I noted that you using wrong slug. Slug is ‘Divi-child’ for your theme. We’re working on a new version where we’re removing dependancy on slug name to make it easy to use.

Thanks

Thank you. The push now works but with some issues. I believe addressing these will help make your plugin bulletproof and available to other child-theme developers :

1) it still does not work with get_template_directory() when using a child-theme -> I had to use get_stylesheet_directory() instead

2) with get_stylesheet_directory() it works, but when I go to Appearance > Themes and click on the update notice, if I click on the update details, a popup window appears but instead of showing me the description and notes of my update, instead it shows the Appearance > Themes page inside the popup. so it’s basically like russian dolls if you see what I mean : I see the same page I’m on, but in a popup.

3) another user above (MatthiasWeb) had concerns about the fact that the url of the file was visible. This concerns me too. So I tried to apply to workaround you suggested, i.e. leaving the file field empty and give the user instructions (so that he can get the file elsewhere but with a dynamic link) but that does not work with a child-theme -> I get a message from the parent theme that says the user needs to enter API credentials.
The way it should work is that even with a child theme, if you click on the update details link, you should see those details.

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

We’re 100% agree with you and working around it.

Thanks

Hi @flippercode,

I appreciate your work with this plugin. Is there any Proper Documentation on how to integrate this with a theme?

Btw, I have done everything you Suggested till now.

Downloaded The class file. Loaded it in the theme. Created a New Update from the Parent site, where your plugin is installed.

No Update Notification shows up in a Dummy site, where the theme is Installed.

I am pretty sure about the slug. But, i am contacting you via email though. :)

I have already sent the email 2 days ago. Waiting for a Response :)

Hello,

I have sent you a response via email today. Please check it now.

Thanks

Good day! I’m experiencing problem with your plugin licence verification. When i trying to enter my code the plugin says ok, your code is legit, but when i update page it starts yelling that purchase not verified

Hello,

can you please email us wp login and purchase code to support@flippercode.com so we can check. and please reference our conversation also there?

Thanks

When I integrate the line: “require_once(dirname(FILE) . ”/class.wp-auto-plugin-update.php”);” – I get a white page. Can you advice?

Hello,

Please use following code to include file.

require_once(get_stylesheet_directory() . ”/class.wp-auto-plugin-update.php”);

and let me know if any issue.

Thanks

I get an error as the file class.wp-auto-plugin-update.php is not in my theme folder, but in the plugin folder. If (for test) I put the file in the theme folder, I get exactly the same result: a white page.

Hello,

Please give me WP Login and FTP to hello@flippercode.com so i can check your issue.

Thanks

Hello Flipp

I am confusing and not able to integrate it for multiple plugins.

Can you guid us step by step how to integrate for multiple plugins?

Hello, I am interested in purchasing this item. Before purchase question: does you item support Envato item purchase code verification (to verify that the client has purchased the plugin) before plugin update? Thanks!

Hello,

Not Yet, But we’re working on a new version and will message you when it’ll be released.

Thanks

Ok, thank you, will be waiting. Have a nice day!

Could i use this to do the following:

a) whitelabel my wordpress themes/plugins.. Change names of my premium plugins bought here on codecanyon and it read plugin1, plugin2, plugin3 – then so long as name is same on plugin and inside url of plugin..

b) push updates to client sites… Basically i replace zip file and it will push update notifications to clients?

a – can i take a plugin rename it and then use your plugin to replace it and push updates under new name… this would a way of white labeling site… I could rename theme and plugins and then simply when updates are available i can replace file with new name and it would push updates to sites… is this correct?

anything? Bought – will try…

Hello,

Yes, you can do push your new plugin using this plugin.

Thanks

Hi,The update notifications are no longer sent from this plugin after latest WordPress release (4.7.3) Please provide a solution to this!

Hello,

We’re checking it today and updating the plugin. You’ll be notified by email from codecanyon.net.

Thanks

PS: i test with another class name in the “class.wp-auto-plugin-update” file and works well, but i need to know if this is the correct way to do this

Hello,

Yeah, you need to change the class name and it’ll work as usual.

Thanks

Hello. What should I do if the parent theme is not updated when the child theme is activated?

Hello,

Sorry, I didn’t get your question. Plese, explain it in details so we can help you better.

Thanks

1. I have a basic theme 2. I have a child theme 3. When I activate the child theme, the main theme of the update does not come

Hello,

Parent and child theme is both a different product for this plugin. So simply you create a new product in the backend and include update file in the parent theme as well.

Thanks

Hello,

This looks like a really great solution for providing automatic updates. I have one question for you.

I use Continuous integration with my privately hosted GitLab repository. So I was thinking if there is a way, say a custom WP-CLI command which would essentially add the needed information to the database so that auto updates can be managed by my CI script. If not, is there one single function call or any sort of API where I will feed version information, plugin name, download URL etc and it will do the rest? Then I can easily make a WP-CLI command out of it?

And in the screenshot I see “Envato API key from Settings page”. Does it not use the new API method?
