Can the plugin be updated automatically?

Not really automatically but kind of. You still have to initiate the update in your dashboard but you can get the update right in your WordPress dashboard without manually download/upload the plugin files.

If activated, you should get notified by Envato via E-Mail if I push a new version. However you can get a) get the updates earlier and b) via your own WordPress dashboard. Here is how to do it:

How to activate automatic updates

If the plugin is not yet running or is not activated:

  1. Log-In to your WordPress dashboard
  2. Activate the snip plugin.
  3. Go to snip -> Activation.
  4. Enter your purchase code and click the big blue button.
  5. That’s it!

What if updates do not appear?

The plugin only checks for updates every two days. If you know that there is an update but WordPress does not notify you about the update, do the following:

  1. Log-In to your WordPress dashboard
  2. Go to Dashboard -> Updates.
  3. If the update still does not show up, hit the gray “Check again” button.
  4. That forces the plugin to check live for an update.
  5. After that the update should appear.
