Upgrade to Pro Version

This tutorial will briefly explain how you can upgrade from the free theme version to your purchased pro version. The process is very easy and will only take a few seconds.

Install the Pro plugin

Please note that the pro version is an add-on plugin, which adds the additional pro features to the base theme. You therefore have to install and activate the free magazine theme and install the pro version plugin in addition. You can learn how to install plugins in the Install WordPress plugins tutorial.

After you have installed and activated the pro version plugin, you can go to Appearance -> Pro Version and enter your license key in order to get automatic updates.

Setup additional features

The plugin adds several new settings on WP admin panel Appearance Customize → Theme Options. There should be two new sections for Theme Colors and Theme Fonts as well as several new settings in the existing sections for uploading a logo image, removing the credit link and more, depending on the theme you are using.

You can also add footer widgets on your WP admin panel → Appearance → Widgets now.
