If you have purchase WP Mapbox GL JS Advanced, you will need to authenticate the license of your plugin before you can use it.

Your Authentication key is able to be used on any one site at a time. You can use it on any number of development sites as needed (sites with http://localhost in the URL).

When you purchase, you should receive an email with your license key on it, similar to the following:

This License Key will be needed after you install the plugin. After installation, you will need to go to the WP Mapbox GL JS Advanced settings page (WP Mapbox > WP Mapbox Settings in the left side menu of WordPress) — the same place that you enter in your authentication token from Mapbox.

Here, you will see a text field where you can paste in your license key. Paste it in, press “Activate Key”, and you will see a message appear stating the date when your license key will expire. Make sure you renew your subscription before that ends or the map will stop showing properly in the front-end!

Please get in touch with us right away if you are having trouble with your License Key, or if you have lost or misplaced the email with it, we will find your License Key for you as soon as possible.
