ZIP Recipes

Automatic updates released for Zip Recipes

This week, we released a great new feature for Zip Recipes: automatic updates. Why is this important for you? If you’re an existing customer, you only need to manually install one  more update, then you can always update with just one click, from the WordPress backend! See detailed installation instructions.

We will be emailing you this week about this update, and you will also receive a download link and license key. The license key tells the server the update is requested by a user with a valid subscription, then WordPress will download the package and install the update for you, like any other plugin. For Zip Recipes Lover users, the license key will also be used to validate access to the nutrition API.

This update als changes the user account on Zip Recipes. We will be migrating you soon, but if you’re not in the system yet, let us know and we can add you straight away.

You can login to your account with the email you used for the purchase, and then you’ll be able to access your account, where you can access your downloads, upgrades, renewals, and cancellations.

 

F.A.Q.

If your license is activated, you should be able to update from the WordPress plugins dashboard. If this doesn’t work, there’s probably a configuration issue on your server. We’ve listed several of the most common causes.

Sure! Just go to your account, then click “view licenses”, then “view upgrade”. There you have options to pay the additional amount.

The download link you received in the initial e-mail is valid for 24 hours. After the link has expired you can log in to your ZIP Recipes account to download the plugin again. When logged in to your account you will see a section “your purchases”. 

Clicking on the ‘View Details and Downloads’ button will take you to a new page. On this new page scroll down to locate the ‘Products’ section. In the products section you can click on the plugin hyperlink to download the plugin.

To install the plugin, you can follow these instructions on Really Simple SSL

When you purchase one of our plugins an account is created automatically. You can reset your password here

If you don’t remember the email you used for the purchase, or did the purchase before the automatic account creation was activated, please contact us and we’ll set it up for you. 

You can create a new password via the following link: https://ziprecipes.net/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

When getting a ‘this email is not authorized to renew license’ error, try clearing cookies from your browser. That will likely solve the issue.

If you click the download link after you have purchased a plugin, you should download a zipped file which you can upload to WordPress. If this is not the case, you are probably using Safari. This is easy to fix. Go to:

Safari > Preferences > General > Open “safe” files after downloading: uncheck.
