1. How to ask for a refund?

If you've decided that our theme / plugin doesn't work for you, we do offer a full refund.

In order to ask for a refund, please submit a request for a refund on the following link: http://themeforest.net/refund_requests/new.

Here's how the refund process works:

1. The refund request is sent to us via email, and we decide if we are going to approve it or not.

2. Once the refund is approved, it can take between 3 to 5 days for Envato to transfer money back to your account.

3. If the refund is not approved, you can always raise a dispute

You can find additional guidelines on the refund in the official Envato article.

2. Importing Demo

The best way to start is to install demo content. If you want to install demo content please do the following:

Go to ‘Tools > Import > WordPress’ and install WordPress Importer plugin if it is not already installed.

When it is installed, choose xml file from demo_data folder and click ‘Upload file and import’. On the following screen make sure that ‘Download and import file attachments’ is checked. Click ‘Submit’ button and wait until import is finished.

You should see imported demo timelines in Bold Timeline panel.



3. I can’t upload plugin. It’s saying it is invalid. What went wrong?

Please unpack plugin folder and upload to your wp-content/plugins using FTP. The archive contains not only plugin but also the other files. 

If you want to upload in admin panel, you need to unpack plugin folder (bold-timeline) and pack it again as zip and then upload that zip.

4. How to enter Purchase Code?

Since Bold Timeline version 1.0.3, once you install and activate plugin (or just update plugin to that version if you had it previously), a new option, Product License, will appear in Bold Timeline panel.

Once you enter Bold Timeline's purchase code you will be able to receive notifications about new plugin versions, and update it through your dashboard, in Updates panel.

Please note that you are not required to enter purchase code in order for the plugin to work. Registration with purchase code is only used to receive plugin updates through wp-admin panel.

5. How to install Bold Timeline plugin?

There are two methods of installing a plugin onto your WordPress site. You can use the WordPress Admin panel to upload and install the plugin, or you can use FTP software instead.

WordPress Plugin Installation

To install the plugin directly from the WordPress admin panel, please first log-in to your wp-admin console.

  1. Navigate to Plugins > Add New,
  2. Click Upload Plugin,
  3. Click Choose File.
  4. If you want to upload in admin panel, you need to extract plugin folder (bold-timeline folder), from downloaded bold-timeline.zip file and pack it again as zip and then upload that zip.
  5. Click Install Now and the installation will begin.
  6. Once the installation is complete, go to Plugins screen and look for the newly uploaded Bold Timeline in the list.
  7. Click Activate to activate it.

FTP Installation

To install the plugin using FTP software, log in to the server where your WordPress website is hosted.
First extract bold-timeline folder from downloaded bold-timeline.zip file.

Now connect to your server via FTP and navigate to the wp-content/plugins folder in your WordPress directory online. Upload bold-timeline folder to the plugins’ folder on your remote server.

Once the plugin is uploaded, you need to activate it. Go to ‘Plugins > Installed Plugins’, find Bold Timeline and click ‘Activate’ button.

6. How to translate plugin?

The procedure is standard – you can find the .pot file in the plugin’s languages folder.

Please use PoEdit to translate the .pot file and create respective .po and .mo fies.

You should upload .po and .mo files created using PoEdit back to plugin’s languages folder.

Please name .po and .mo files for example: bold-timeline-nl_NL.po and bold-timeline-nl_NL.mo (nl_NL is the language code for dutch) and place them in /wp-content/plugins/bold-timeline/languages/. 

For other languages code, please refer to the following link: Internationalization.

You can set the site language of your WordPress installation on Settings > General. WordPress will automatically use the right language files if they exist.

9. How to update a plugin?

There are two ways to update Bold Timeline plugin - through wp-admin or through FTP.

Since plugin version 1.0.3 it is possible to update plugin through your dashboard, in Updates panel. In order to be able to do this, you will need to register your purchase code.

You can register your purchase code in Bold Timeline >Product License panel, on your dashboard.

Other option to update Bold Timeline to the latest version is to download the plugin folder from the download section of your CodeCanyon profile and update through FTP. We suggest that you use Filezilla to access your server. Here is the article that explains how Filezilla works.

Extract bold-timeline file from the folder you downloaded, and upload it to /wp-content/plugins/ folder of your WordPress installation. You will be prompted to overwrite the existing files. Select ‘Yes’, and the plugin will update.

If you have made some changes in the plugin’s code, you will need to reapply the changes in the new version.

Timelines that were made before update will be preserved.
