  1. Having some trouble with the Theme License link under Appearance. There is not a Theme License link. Any suggestions?

    1. I figured it out. I was using a Mac with Safari. Safari would not properly save the .zip file. By using Firefox, the download saved properly under the .zip file. This allowed me to upload the downloaded .zip file. From the time selection page. By uploading a downloaded .zip file from Firefox I was able to use the theme. Ask any questions.

  2. Hello,

    So I do not know what to do because I have to pay this theme .

  3. Sorry for the late reply @beezco. It seems like you are using old version where this menu section would not work.
    Please confirm you have the latest theme installed or any updates available for download in your dashboard.

    Or can you please write here your current theme version so that we can verify it?

    Thanks

    1. Hello @stacy, are you using its premium version ‘Bizlight Pro’ . Premium version has this license input field.
      The current updated version is 2.0.6 . Please verify once and let us know if this is still an issue.

  5. Hi,
    I bought Photo Perfect Pro.
    Theme License section does not appear in the Appearance menu .
    please helping me….!

        1. Sorry for the confusion, but would like to know the current version of the Photo Perfect Pro theme that you have installed.

          You can find the current version in readme.txt file inside your theme directory.

  6. @sohughes1, sorry free version does not have this option and feature available. You have to go for Pro version of the theme you are currently using. Or if you have already purchased the Pro version please install and activate to get this option enabled.

    Thank you!

    I am cannot see the license key appear on *Appearances > Theme License*
    I am using WordPress version 4.5.2

    Please advice.

  8. @painfarah,

    You can find your license key in your account dashboard at Theme Palace. You need to copy and paste it in ‘Theme License’ input field in your WP admin dashboard.

    Further, be informed that the product license key is unique per domain or site.

    For more details, read our FAQs .

  9. Today I bought education hub theme. I tried activating it on my website. I dont find Licenses key under appearance. I am using wordpress 4.5.2 (latest one). Whats going on ?

  10. Make sure you have activated the purchased theme and deactivate the free theme if previously activated.

    After activating the pro theme, you should see the Theme License menu.

    If you still have this issue, you can contact support team through Update Key Support Form. http://themepalace.com/update-key-support/

    Thank you.

  11. Hi Team! Thumbs up on the theme great work I have just bought the Travel Eye theme for my online travel business Just wanted to know how do i make the menu stay on top when I scroll through the page? your response would be much appreciated. Also I will need someone to work on a more complex form pulling data from a 3rd party API via XML do you know if this will be an issue, and also does your company do something like this?

  12. The initial images in masonry layout is the post’s featured images.
    So to set the initial images in masonry layout first you need to create/add post going to Admin Panel / Posts -> Add New.
    While creating post you need to set Featured Image ( You will see Featured Image section little below in right hand side of the screen) for that post will will be displayed as images in masonry layout.
    Similarly you can create/add more posts with featured image which will be displayed as images in masonry layout.
    If you have two post’s with featured image then you will see two images in masonry layout.

    Please post in your further queries in our support forum to get swift responses.

    Hope this will help you.

    Regards!!!

  13. Hi, the View Licenses link doesn’t seem to be working. I can’t add my site URL as I can’t access the Manage Sites option on the View Licenses page. Please help

  14. @niharikabalachandra, could you please let us know for what purpose you are trying to change / add your site URL there. We usually do not recommend this approach.

    Normally, this information is auto updated after you install and activate your license key from the site.

    Also if you want to use the license key in another site domain, you would just deactivate / remove the previous license and use it in another new domain as license would normally work back again from there.

    Hope this helps !

  15. Hi. I’ve been trying to activate my theme’s license to ensure I receive the automatic updates (Theme is Education Hub). I am trying Account > View Licenses > Manage Sites but the View Licenses link is not working for me. Can you suggest what I might be doing wrong?!

  16. Well you can go to your account dashboard and view your purchase history. Click on ‘View details and downloads’ link which will show you other information along with the License Key. Copy this license key and go to your dashboard Appearance -> Theme License , input the license and activate it.

    It should normally work now.

    Let us know if you have any confusions.
