Activate Extension(s) API

To receive Automatic Extension updates, your extensions need to be activated with a working Main API Key after successful installation.


Upgrade of the Extension Licencing system

In Version 4.2 of MainWP a new Extension licensing system has been implemented.

Users of previous MainWP versions are required to delete the old Extension API data and enter the new Main API Key.

Go to the MainWP > Settings > Tools page, locate and click the Delete Extensions API Activation Data button. Then proceed to Automatic or Manual Extension(s) Activation.

This doesn’t affect your extensions settings.


Automatic Extension(s) Activation

  1. Login to your MainWP Dashboard site
  2. Go to the MainWP > Extensions page
  3. On the top of the page, you will find the Install and Activate Extensions box
  4. Enter your Main API Key and check Remember MainWP Main API Key
    Activate Extension(s) API 1
  5. Click the Validate my MainWP Main API Key button
  6. Click the Activate Extensions button to activate currently installed Extensions



Manual Extension(s) Activation

  1. Login to your MainWP Dashboard site
  2. Go to the MainWP > Extensions page
  3. Locate the Extension that you want to activate
    Note: inactive extensions will be indicated by the red X icon
  4. Click the License button to activate the extension
    Activate Extension(s) API 2


Important Notes
