Installing and keeping the WordPress plugins up to date

How to install/update

Auto-Update via Envato Market plugin (Recommended)

The best and easiest way to keep all of your plugins from the envato marketplace (codecanyon, themeforest) updated, is to use the official Envato Market WordPress plugin. Just download and install the plugin, connect your envato account and you can easily update all plugins and themes.

Note: You need to delete the plugin first before you can install/update it via the Envato Market plugin. No data will be lost.

Manually (Not Recommended)

We do not recommend this method, because you'll not receive any update notifications. You also might get an error when uploading the plugin ("The link you followed has expired"), this tutorial explains how to fix it.

Via FTP tool: Just replace the fancy-product-designer folder.

Via WP admin: Deactivate the plugin and delete it. Then upload new zip and activate the plugin again.

In both cases you will not loose any of your created products and settings.


Additional information


 If you are using specific design categories in the individual product settings, you have to reset these.


Go to Settings - Fonts tab and save your fonts. You can also use TrueType fonts as custom fonts now, which is also recommend!


The way you set up patterns for text elements has changed. Please view revised solution.


  • If you are using color control for elements, you have to reset these via an own option field (Color Link Group)
  • If you were using bounding box clipping, you have to reset this option as the option name has changed. This option has even more values you can choose from
  • You need to reset the option for lightbox, if you want to display the product designer in the lightbox
