How to Unhide a Hidden Register License Key Area

Are you missing the “Register License Key” area from Slider Revolution’s main admin page? This article will help you reveal this hidden area so you can register your plugin and access your premium benefits.

What is the Register License Key Area?

After purchasing Slider Revolution, you can register a license key you have generated from your member dashboard.

Registration unlocks premium benefits, including 200+ ready-to-go templates, 25+ advanced addons, a massive library of videos, photos & icons, and direct 1-on-1 support.

The Register License Key area is part of the main admin area of the Slider Revolution plugin used to register your license key. It can be found by clicking the Activation menu item, which will scroll the page down to the correct location:

Why Can’t I See the “Register License Key” Area?

If your copy of Slider Revolution came bundled with a theme, it’s possible the Register License Key area may have been hidden by the theme author.

The reason theme authors sometimes do this is that they don’t provide license keys for Slider Revolution’s premium features, so they don’t want to create confusion by showing the Register License Key area to customers who may not yet have a license key to register.

Instead, they show a modified Slider Revolution admin area that looks like this:

Reveal the “Register License Key” Area via a Temporary Theme Switch

In the situation where the Register License Key area is hidden, you can either:

  • Switch your theme to another theme temporarily. This will reveal the Register License Key area to register your license key.
  • Or you can contact our support team.

Switch Your Currently Activated Theme

Switching a theme does not break a website or theme; it only disables the theme’s styling until the theme is re-activated.

Note: As a precaution, we recommend creating a backup of your site before switching your theme to another theme.

Let’s learn how to switch a theme.

Step 1. Go to the Slider Revolution dashboard:

Note: In some cases switching a theme either deactivates the bundled Slider Revolution plugin or doesn’t reveal the registration area. If this is the case for you, contact our support via a support ticket or email ([email protected]) for further assistance.
