Enable automatic updates of YOOtheme Pro and gain access to the layout library as well as the Unsplash image library.

YOOtheme Pro can be updated using the WordPress update system. Whenever a new version of YOOtheme Pro is available, you will receive a notification in the WordPress Dashboard. Before you can update, you have to first add your YOOtheme Pro API key.

Update notification


A YOOtheme API key is an alphanumeric code. It consists of 40 characters and is created individually for each website. Without it you won't be able to update YOOtheme Pro or access the Layout Library and the Unsplash image library. You can find and manage your API keys in the Websites tab of your account. Add each domain where you want to use YOOtheme Pro, and a unique API key will be generated.
