So I guess this thing is a requirement now. I went to add it to my theme, but the install instructions aren’t obvious to me…

  1. Copy the `envato-wordpress-toolkit-library` folder into your theme folder.
    • Got this one. No issue here.
  2. View the contents of the `functions.php` for usage examples
    • Do I just copy/paste the code into my functions file? I have no clue what’s going on here.
  3. Customize the code in your theme to accept the user’s ThemeForest Username and Secret API Key
    • Not sure what this means or how I’m expected to do this.
  4. Instantiate the `Envato_WordPress_Theme_Upgrader` class and call its `check_for_theme_update` and `upgrade_theme` methods at appropriate times. If you want to disable caching be sure to set $allow_cache parameter to false
    • Not sure what this means or how I’m expected to do this.
  5. Your theme should now be able to check for updates and update itself!

Are there more detailed instructions somewhere? Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks!

Chris

Can we also get a confirmation on whether or not this is WP MultiSite capable… that’s more or less a deal breaker for lots of buyers.

Lol – yep – we can breathe a collective sigh of relief now… all I kept thinking was that it’d be just another thing to test for. I purposefully strip as many unnecessary features OUT of my themes as possible. Adding one more test-checkpoint for someone else’s code is never fun.

...Plus, an easy to use update button sounds like a recipe for disaster for me … I already field tons of questions about users that customize theme files, then update the theme and lose their customizations…

Can I request that if this ever becomes a requirement, that there’s ample documentation warning theme users of what’s happening (and also including a rollback feature if they break anything)?

Yes: Don’t use it :) It’s not necessary

Hi everyone,

I tried to update one of our themes using Envato Wordpress Toolkit but Fatal error occurs:

Fatal error: Call to undefined method Envato_Backup::database_dump_filename() in /home/content/15/9749015/html/testenv/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/envato-wordpress-toolkit-master/includes/class-envato-backup.php on line 451

Someone had that problem? Any suggestions because I would like to ease our buyers update process.

Plugin is properly setup, username and keys entered etc.

I have used this plugin before. But few things must be Fixed.

That plugin will always keep saying Update this plugin because this plugin has available update. If i check the version of this plugin then plugin is latest version there has no version to download on Github, but every theme purchased users keep saying how to update this.

I didn’t find anything useful on this plugin but the main purpose is good but you need to work on this plugin before.

I don’t recommend this plugin until issue has been resolved.
