Changes to Registration with Avada 7.3
Last Update: May 15, 2023
As of Avada 7.3, how you register your Avada website has changed. This was done primarily to simplify the process, based on user feedback, from using a generated Token key, to simply pasting in the Purchase Code to register your purchase of Avada. Read on for more details about this new process, and watch the video below for a visual overview.
For a new install, registering is a simple matter of obtaining the purchase key from the ThemeForest account that purchased Avada and pasting it in to the registration field on the Avada Dashboard. See the How To Register Avada documentation for full details on this process. If you are updating your website from an earlier version to Avada 7.3, the process will be slightly different. In this case, your site would already be registered with a Token Key, and this needs to be replaced with a Purchase Code.
Updating to Avada 7.3+
Once you have updated Avada, and updated both the Required plugins, you will see a message on the Avada Dashboard about the site registration, as you can see in the screenshot below. There is a grace period of 10 days for you to locate your purchase code, and re-register with the new method. Within these 10 days, the site will be as normal, and you can still update plugins and import prebuilt sites, etc.
Once you have located the relevant purchase code, all you need to do here is click on Update Registration, paste the code into the Registration field, and click Register Now! You’ll be rewarded with a confirmation message and a tick, and it will also show as registered at the top of the Dashboard.
Each Avada website you create needs to have a unique purchase code, so allocate each copy of Avada you have purchased to a specific website. That said, this new registration system still allows you to have a registered development site, whether it be a staging or local site, as well as the main website, but the way you manage this has changed a little bit.
