Activating Kalium theme is an automated process, you don’t need to copy any purchase code, simply connect your Envato account with our API server and the rest is handled by us.
The term “activating theme” means connecting to our API server and validating your purchase code for the theme. This way you will be able to get latest updates for the theme and bundled premium plugins.
Regardless whether you are using parent theme or child theme, once you activate the theme it is valid for both theme types.
Before activating the theme, make sure you have read theme licensing article and after that proceed with the steps below.
We also suggest you watch the video tutorial on showing how you can activate Kalium theme.
Step 1 – Go to product registration page
Inside WordPress admin panel go to Laborator > Product Registration page:
Step 2 – Activate product
Start by clicking Activate Product button:
A popup with appears and you are asked to Approve permissions on your Envato account (no sensitive information will be fetched from your account, only what you approve):
Then choose the purchase code from the dropdown list to activate for your site and click Proceed:
Note: One purchase code can only be activated for one domain. Click here to learn more about this. If you have purchased more than one license please select your license from the dropdown as on the image below.
After successful activation click Start using Kalium button and you will see license information data after popup closes, here you can also set Backup Options before closing the dialog:
License information is shown always in Product Registration tab:
That’s it! Kalium is active and you are eligible for automatic theme updates, premium plugins updates, and theme backups.
Theme backups are enabled by default when you activate Kalium. To change this on Laborator > Product Registration tab click change theme backups link and then click Save:
Cannot activate the theme or install theme plugins?
It happens that sometimes theme activation is not possible, this is caused either by cURL Firewall or Envato API outage and doesn’t allow our server to retrieve your information from Envato.
Te determine if the firewall is the problem go to Laborator > System Status and check if WP Remote Get or WP Remote Post is showing “Laborator API server is not accessible at this url: https://api.laborator.co“ error, in this case, you should contact your host and ask them to allow access to our API Server: https://api.laborator.co
Otherwise, we suggest you submit a ticket in our support forum and let us know about any other issue with theme activation.
