WPBakery Page Builder asking for License Activation

Question:

I’m trying to update the WPBakery Page Builder, but I receive this error messageTo receive automatic updates license activation is required. Please visit Settings to activate your WPBakery Page Builder.

If I try to activate WPBakery Page Builder I get the message “It seems that you do not have any valid license for WPBakery Page Builder. What does it mean? It may be so that you got WPBakery Page Builder by purchasing WordPress theme which does not grant you with direct license for WPBakery Page Builder.

What do I have to do?

Answer:

Since WPBakery Page Builder is coming as a bonus / free with the theme, users don’t get to have their own purchase codes, but it’s not required, assuming you need it to be able to update the plugin. The option to activate a license was left open for those who already have a license.

We always make sure to include the latest version when we release theme updates, so go to  Plugins > WPBakery Page Builder instead, this is where you update the plugins coming with the theme.
