Upgrading from Toolkit
to the new Envato Market
WordPress Plugin

The new Envato Market plugin replaces the old Envato Toolkit plugin.

The Envato Toolkit plugin will no longer work as the old API is closing down. 

If you are still using the Envato Toolkit plugin please:

  1. Delete the Envato Toolkit plugin from your WordPress website.
  2. Install the new Envato Market plugin.

The Envato Market WordPress Plugin makes it easy for Theme & Plugin authors to deliver updates to their customers.

With the use of a secure OAuth token and the powerful Envato API we can deliver a smooth item installation and update experience for WordPress customers.

  5. Find the “Envato WordPress Toolkit” plugin again and choose the “Delete” option.

The plugin will stop working, and may potentially slow down your WordPress admin area.
