Theme Activation

Updated: March 3, 2020

Note: This documentation is only valid for Translated & Multilingual themes (Framework2 themes). It does not apply to WPML Ready Themes (Framework1 themes) or Citadela Theme

Since Update on 3rd of March 2020, each theme requires a valid AitThemes API key or valid Envato Purchase Code. You will not be able to use the theme without it but don’t worry, it’ll only take you a minute to set it up correctly.

If you already have a new API key in AIT Updater that you generated after 19th of February, you don’t need to enter it into Theme Options. API Key will be transferred automatically. Please make sure you entered your domain URL correctly as it is described below. You can generate new API key before Theme Update or Theme Installation.

Important note: API Keys generated before 19th of February will no longer work.

How to generate API Key

API key for each domain can be generated in your AitThemes admin account, please navigate to My Account → API Keys.

Enter a WordPress address (URL) without http:// or https:// and click “Add” button. System will automatically generate new API key. If you do not know your WordPress address, you can find it in your WordPress admin → Settings → General.

Copy API key and paste it into Theme Admin → Theme Options → API Key in WordPress admin and click “Save Options” button.

User cases

  1. “I have changed my website domain” Then you must re-generated API key (My Account → API Keys) for the new domain and change settings in the Theme Admin → Theme Options → API Key.
  2.  “I have deleted API key in the Theme Options” Then your website won’t be working. Every installation must have a valid API key. Please insert your API key. Your API keys are stored under My Account → API Keys.
  3.  “I have deleted API key in the My Account” Then you have to generate a new one and this new copy and paste into the theme settings. Otherwise, your website will not be active.

How to use Envato Purchase code

Envato Purchase Code can be found in your ThemeForest account → Downloads under the Download button.

Copy Purchase code and paste it into Theme Admin → Theme Options → Themeforest Purchase Code in WordPress admin and click “Save Options” button.
