Automatically Update Your Theme

Enabling automatic updates to your theme with the Setup Guide only takes a few steps. Follow the guide below to enable updates of your theme directly from the WordPress dashboard.

Find the Automatic Updates option in the Setup guide

Visit Getting Started ▸ Setup Guide

Click “Enable Automatic Updates” and then “Generate a Token”. This will open a new window/tab where you can begin creating your personal token

Create your Personal Envato Token

Login to Envato API using the same account that you purchased Listify with. Enter a token name such as “Listify Updater”

Make sure the following permissions are checked:

  • View and search Envato sites
  • Download your purchased items
  • List purchases you’ve made
  • Verify purchases you’ve made

Confirm that you’ve read, understood, and agree to the  terms and conditions and Create the token.

Copy the token generated and store it safely on your desktop. Important: Envato will not store this key for you and if you lose it, you will have to re-create it.

Add your Personal Token to the Setup Guide

Go back to the Listify setup guide, and paste your newly created token into the “Personal Token” field. Save the token. 

Once you have saved the token, you will see the step as completed and the API connection as connected. That’s it! You can now update your theme directly from your WordPress dashboard by going to Appearance ▸ Themes or Dashboard ▸ Updates
