What's the point of the shift?
Previously, this feature was incorporated directly into our topics, but there were some restrictions that led us to split it as a plug-in. With our range of products continuing to expand, we want to upgrade our application programming interface faster - without having to await specific topic release. Updating is still the same as when you are asked to do an actual WordPress plug-in upgrade.
Current users will need to dowload and reinstall the plug-in on their own dashboards to keep receiving automated upgrades as the old updater APII is outdated (i.e. it no longer works). If I don't have the plug-in installed, what happens? There will be no more automated topic updating. You can still always physically fetch each new release from your desktop and still reinstall it.
It is a clearly allocated authentification key that is necessary for access to our service (e.g. the automatic updater). As soon as you have installed the plug-in, you will be informed about all new software up-dates.

When you have found the plug-in, click on the "Install now" icon. Click on the "Activate Plugin" hyperlink after installation. To do this, you must either install the plug-in on your computer by hand or directly via SFTP on your webhost.
Extract and install the plug-in on your computer (using WinZip for PCs or Archive Utility for Mac). You can use an SFTP utility (or your own web host controller ) to copy the unpacked plug-in folders to the `wp-content/plugins/` location of your WordPress install. Enable the plug-in from the Plugins section of the WordPress Administrator side bar menus.
Once the plug-in is activated, please obey the directions at the top of the page. It will show you how to obtain and type your AppThemes API Keys. When this is complete, you will be informed when an upgrade is available via the default WordPress messaging system (plugins or topic page). Internet ) and from there.
