This tab is where you manage ALL of the license keys for BD–both premium modules and premium themes. It will only appear when one or more premium modules or premium BD themes that require license keys are installed.
The default tab appears like this when you have a single module installed (in this example, Discount Codes is the module currently installed. You may have different ones installed and many more than just one if you’re using the Combo Pack)
The license key you need to use here is found the Purchase Email you received after buying a premium module or theme from BD. Copy that key, removing any leading or trailing whitespace, and then paste the key into the correct field.
Clicking Activate will authenticate the key and you’ll receive confirmation:
The key in this case is blocked out for security reasons. Once the key is active, you can click “Deactivate” if you wish to move the license key to another site or domain. Single site licenses allow you to have the license key active on a single production domain.
If your key is invalid, or you’re using the wrong key for the wrong product, you’ll receive a different message:
If you are having trouble with your license keys, be sure to contact Support right away–most license key issues are the result of one of the following:
- The license key expired and you need to renew. You can read the full support policy here.
- The license key has been “overactivated”, meaning you’re using it on more domains than you’re allowed to
- Your local cURL library version is too out of date, and your server can’t securely contact our server to authenticate the key. You can find your current cURL library version using the Debug menu
