Plugin Installation

Apr 29, 2020

Phox requires four essential plugins to operate. These plugins are the Phox Host plugin, Elementor plugin, Envato Market, and the One Click Demo Import. Aside from these four, Phox also comes with one premium bundled plugin is Slider Revolution. We also recommend several plugins that we use for various demos that only need to be installed prior to importing a demo. All these plugins can be accessed via Phox > Install Plugins.

Phox’s Required, Bundled & Recommended Plugins

It’s important to note the differences between Phox’s required, bundled, and recommended plugins. Required plugins, like the Phox Host and Elementor, are very important and must be installed and activated at all times for Phox to work properly.

Phox’s bundled plugins are Premium Plugins that are bundled with the theme purchase and do not require additional licensing in order to use them with Phox. Before you can install the included plugins.

Lastly, there’s Phox’s recommended plugins, which are plugins that we use in our demos, and which are fully integrated with Phox. These are all free plugins and it’s completely up to you whether you install them or not. For some demo imports to work correctly however, some of these plugins must be installed and active.
