Plugin Installation FAQs

Yes. Once you have your plugin activated (Network Activate if you are using a multi-site), you can go to your Gambit Plugins settings on your Plugins. All you need to do is to enter your Purchase Code and activate your automatic updates.

Do I need to have Visual Composer installed along with my plugin?
Please check the plugin page for more information.


Plugin Troubleshooting

Help! I am trying to upload my plugin, but it gives me a "The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found. Plugin install failed." message!
This happens when you tried to install the whole plugin file including the documentations. Please refer to How to Install Gambit Plugins for above installation.

I installed your plugin, but my settings are missing/broken. What should I do?
Check if you are using a plugin that requires Titan Framework. Some of our plugins that uses customized menus requires it. You can download a copy of Titan Framework here. And its for free!

For Visual Composer Addon Plugins: I can't find my plugin components in the Add Element menu!
Please check your Visual Composer settings Role Manager. The Role Manager is responsible on showing and hiding elements in your Add Element menu. You can customize your Elements drop down for which plugin is allowed to use on certain group of users.

If you have tried this but still the plugin component is still in no show, please check your theme as well if they have a plugin whitelist. Some themes are using a whitelist that prevents other Third Party plugins from usage. If you have this kind of problem, please contact your theme author about adding your other plugins in their whitelist.
