    hi, WELL........ i had a problem with a plugin and wanted to find out if it needed updating, to my surprise IN my woothemes account my paid for plugins have been set to expire 31/7/15 UNLESS i hit a button thats says " restore lifetime option"

    funny that i hadn't been told that !
    anyway , some of my past purchases have been reset and some not.

    so if you have any , it would be good to check that out ASAP

    There was a lot of email communication back in the day when their licences went yearly.
    The option was there then to keep the lifetime licence as so many people blew up about the change they had to change it back for past purchases.
     
    Ash and eBranding.com.au like this.

    i still had it in my woothemes account, but as i said it only worked for some, not others, so i guess maybe if none of yours are valid the button doesn't show?

    Nah I just see a renew option. Does the plugin stop working after that date or just support?

    if you are using gravity forms, you may get your clients having something like " this plugin is out of date................" at the bottom of emails going to clients !!!!!
    really embarrassing but you can disable it, just search google

    no, i'd have to go back a few years to find an old email, as i just keep it paid now.
    you can recode gravity forms and is info on the web to tell you where to find it, but it was 3 years ago it happened to me
