Bundled plugins like Revolution slider and Visual Composer come included in the theme at no extra cost.
Here are the main points related to bundled plugins:
- The plugin files you get form us are exactly the same as if you were purchasing the plugin directly from the plugin author.
- The one difference with the bundled plugin is that you do not get a separate purchase code to register the plugin.
- You receive from us updates for the plugin. These plugins can be ONLY updated from Wp-admin -> Appearance -> Install plugins
Note: Even if you see an update notice in admin area for one of those plugins Revolution Slider Or Visual Composer, ignore that notifications and check the above path for updates, they will come automatically from SeventhQueen updates server.
Plugins are fully functional even though you don’t get a plugin purchase code for activation.
Revolution slider and Visual Composer have developed a strategy to make you purchase a license if the plugin is bundled in the theme.
With a purchase code from the plugin developer you get access to their premium support system and some other advantages.
All the themes on Themeforest bundle premium plugins like we do. You get the plugin free to use with the theme but don’t get a purchase code for the actual plugin.
You will see messages in the admin area of WordPress to convince you to buy the plugin even if it is bundled with the theme and normally you don’t have to.
You can check the advantages of a registered plugin on each plugin site. You should buy a bundled plugin license on your own only if you really need the extra advantages.
