  3. Go to your profile page by clicking the My Account link at the top right of this page.

  5. Now go to your website, login to the admin area, then navigate to Settings → Meta Box Updater in the main menu on the left.
  6. On the settings page of the updater plugin, enter your API key and save. Make sure you paste the correct API you just copied above. (If you see message Invalid license key, please try again one more time).
