[Tutorial] 1-click updates for Widgetkit 2 or ZOO or YOOtheme Pro templates
In order to authenticate yourself while requesting the download without compromising your credentials, YOOtheme provides a personal API Key, which you will find in your YOOtheme account page. It acts on your behalf, so remember to treat it just like a password, don’t share it.
To set the API Key copy it from your user account, then open the plugin "Installer - YOOtheme" in Joomla's Plugin Manager.
Paste your API key into the field, and click "Save & Close" in the toolbar:
Go to Extensions > Extension Manager > Update, click on "Find Updates", tick the extensions you want update, and click on "Update":
Mind that depending on the security restrictions of your webserver it might not be possible to update this way. If it doesn't work:
Downloadt the most recent installer package from the YOOtheme download area.
Install it via Extensions > Extension Manager > Install > Upload Package File
Both approaches — 1-Click update or via the Joomla Extensions Manager — will result in an updated extension.
Important: At the time being YOOtheme templates/themes can not be updated via a "1-Click-Update".
