Software Licensing - Updating Child Themes

When using automatic updating with EDD's Software Licensing you must have an /updater/ folder in your theme folder, and it must contain a theme-updater-class.php file.

For child themes that theme-updater-class.php file needs a minor adjustment. On line 24 you'll find 'theme_slug' => get_template(),

get_template() must be changed to get_stylesheet() for Child Themes, so that it looks like this:

Inside your child theme functions.php file you will also have to make a change:

function prefix_theme_updater() {
    require( get_template_directory() . '/updater/theme-updater.php' );
add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'prefix_theme_updater' );

Change get_template_directory to get_stylesheet_directory
