IMPORTANT: The notifications from Visual Composer, Revolution Slider or Ultimate Addons for WPBakery Page Builder that you need the purchase license code to get automatic updates is just for clients who buy the license. We bought the commercial license so we can offer these plugins for free to our clients with WP Residence theme. All updates will be offered through our theme updates.

How to install plugins:
The standard method is via the notice in header that shows after installing and activating WP Residence.
Install from Plugins -> Add New
Sometimes, due to 3rd party plugin auto-installer script we must use, this method fails, so the install can be done using the plugin files from the theme pack.
If the auto-installer fails, install the plugin from admin – plugins – add new and find the plugin in theme pack, path plugins folder.
