Method 1: Automatic Updates

This guide shows how to install & connect the Envato Market plugin to your ThemeForest/Envato account so you can update easily from the WordPress admin.

Step 1 - Generate Token

Navigate to Envato Market in the WordPress admin. Click the generate a personal token link.

After clicking the link you will be taken to the page below (you may need to login to your Envato account first).

  1. Enter a name into the Token name field ("updates" for example).

  2. Check the "Terms and Conditions" box.

  3. Click the Create Token button.

You can leave the Permission options as they are.

Copy your token code from the "Success" screen (this is important since Envato doesn't store it for you) and click the Got it button.

Step 2 - Connect Envato Account

To connect your Envato Market account, enter your Envato token into the Token field and click the Save Changes button.

If you see the following error message when you first enter your token, simply go back to the previous page and try again. It should work on the second go.

Step 3 - Update Theme

Once your token is saved and validated the available items for your Envato account will be displayed. To update the theme, simply click the Update Available link in the orange notice on the theme listing.

That's it!

That will update only the theme, you still have to update the bundled plugins
