It is pretty simple to update InstaShow, though sometimes questions arise. That is why we are giving you this tutorial.
You can update the plugin in two ways, automatically from your WordPress admin panel, and manually. The easiest of the two is to update automatically, we recommend it the most. However, there are cases when updating manually is appropriate, and so we present both options to you.
Automatic plugin update. In this way you update InstaShow via WordPress admin panel, in the same way as any free plugin.
Before updating the plugin, make sure that you have activated it with the CodeCanyon purchase code on the InstaShow activation page. On that page you need to enter your purchase code into Activate InstaShow form, and press Activate button. If you need more information on purchase code and where to find it, go to https://elfsight.com/blog/2016/04/where-to-find-your-envato-purchase-code/.
Once you’ve activated InstaShow, you can update it in your WordPress admin panel. To do it, go to Dashboard and select Updates. On the updates page you will see the update information, including the availability of an update, and the date of the last update check.
So how not to miss an InstaShow update?
Generally, you will get a notification email from the Envato marketplace.
You can also check for the newest updates on the Updates page, by pressing Check Again. After pressing this button you’ll have to wait for a couple of minutes or refresh the page. It is possible that there will be a small delay between the check request and the response. If an update is ready to be downloaded, you will see it on the list of updates.
InstaShow also runs an automatic update check at certain intervals. In case there an available update, you’ll see a notification at your WordPress panel.
- Manual plugin update. The other way to update InstaShow is to get its latest version at the downloads section at https://codecanyon.net/downloads. After downloading the update, you need to unzip it, and overwrite all the plugin’s files on your WordPress website via FTP. All your settings and feeds will be saved, and none of them will be lost.
