Please note, if you don’t see a ‘License’ tab then it’s likely that you still have the free version of the plugin installed. The free version and Pro version are actually two separate versions of the plugin. When you purchased the plugin you should have received a link to download a zip file of the Pro version, along with your license key. This should also have been emailed to you at the address that you entered when purchasing the plugin. The Pro version contains the ‘License’ tab which will allow you to enter and activate your license.

There are step-by-step instructions on how to install and activate the Pro version here. If you want to transfer your settings from the free version to the Pro version then you can do the following:

Step #1 – Save your current Free version plugin settings:

For Custom Facebook Feed: Go to your WordPress Dashboard – Facebook Feed – Customize (tabbed page) – Misc (sub-tabbed page) – scroll to bottom of the page and make sure the box next to the setting of “Preserve settings when plugin is removed” has a check mark in it. Then click on “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.

For Instagram Feed: Go to your WordPress Dashboard – Instagram Feed – Settings – 1. Configure (tabbed page) – scroll to the setting of “Preserve settings when plugin is removed” and make sure the “Yes” box next to it has a check mark in it. Then click on “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.

For Custom Twitter Feeds: Go to your WordPress Dashboard – Twitter Feeds – 1. Configure (tabbed page) – scroll to the setting of “Preserve settings when plugin is removed” and make sure the box next to it has a check mark in it. Then click on “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.

For Feeds for YouTube: Go to your WordPress Dashboard – Feeds for YouTube – 2. Customize (tabbed page) – scroll to the bottom section on the page “Advanced” and then for the setting of “Preserve settings when plugin is removed” make sure the box next to it has a check mark in it. Then click on “Save Changes” at the bottom of the page.

Step #2 – Remove the currently installed Free version plugin:
