The theme included WPBakery Page Builder licensing plugin, we purchased it from wpbakery.com and included it for free in the theme package without any issues. However, if you want automatic updates and support from the plugin developer, you need to purchase it separately (this is 100% optional). Because we are not allowed to include the license key for it, so you do NOT have a purchase code for that plugin and you can’t enter anything in this field. If there is any update, we are accountable for updating the theme with the newest version of this plugin.
After installing the SmartKit theme, you’ll see a notification Begin installing plugins on the top of the page that says the theme needs some plugins to function properly.
Step 1 – Click to Begin installing plugins the top of the page. Alternatively, you can use Appearance > Install Plugins menu that redirects to the plugins installation page.
Step 2 – Check boxes to select all the plugins you want to install and click on Install from the dropdown box and then click the button to Apply. The SmartKit theme requires following plugins: KSF Framework, WPBakery Page Builder.
Step 3 – After you have installed all the plugins, click on Return to Required Plugins Installer.
