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
