Weaver Xtreme Plus 2.1 (and 2.1.1) has a problem with the plugin registration and update mechanism. Version 2.1 will not recognize attempts to register, and once activated, will not detect the new updated 2.1.2 (or later) version.

Unfortunately, this requires a manual update to Version 2.1.2 (or later).

We apologize for this inconvenience.

Please follow these steps to update your site or sites to Weaver Xtreme Plus Version 2.1.2 (or later):

Download Weaver Xtreme Plus Version 2.1.2 (or later) to your computer:

  1. Login to your account at the Weaver Xtreme Shop – click the Login at the right end of the menu.
  2. Open the Your Account  -> Purchase History Page.
  3. Open the “View Details and Downloads” link.
  4. Near the bottom under the Products heading, you’ll see the download link for “Weaver Xtreme Plus 2.1.2” (or later). Click that link and download the 2.1.2 (or later) zip file to your own computer.


Reinstall Weaver Xtreme Plus 2.1.2 (or later) on your site or sites:

You now need to replace the old Version 2.1 with the new 2.1.2 (or later) version. The following steps are the easiest way to update the plugin.

  1. From the Dashboard -> Plugins -> Installed Plugins menu, find the Weaver Xtreme Plus 2.1 or 2.1.1 entry.
  2. Click the Deactivate link to deactivate the old version. Your site will temporarily not use Weaver Xtreme Plus options.
  3. Now, click the Delete link to delete the old version. This step is necessary because WordPress will not directly replace any existing plugin.
  4. Now install the new 2.1.2 (or later) version. First, click the Add New button at the top of the Plugins menu.
  5. Now click the Upload Plugin button at the top to open the upload plugin dialog.
  6. Select the weaver-xtreme-plus-2-1-2.zip (or later) file you previously downloaded.
  7. Click the Install Now button, and then install and activate the 2.1.2 (or later) version.


You can now open the Appearance -> Xtreme Plus page, and open the Activate License Key tab. Entering the license number should then activate the plugin for the new site. From this point on, you should receive automatic notices of new updates and not have to repeat this manual process.
