How to Access CrocoBlock Dashboard
Step 1 — Log into the WordPress Dashboard using your login credentials.
Step 2 — Here choose the CrocoBlock tab located on the left.

By default, when you access CrocoBlock Dashboard, the first tab that’s open is License.
In this tab, you can find the license key that you already have after purchasing the CrocoBlock subscription. You get it from the Personal account in the Purchase Details > Manage License block at CrocoBlock’s official website.
By the same token, you can check if the particular license key is active on your site in the Status field.
In case you need to make your license inactive, click Deactivate button.
Shift to the Plugins tab. This tab provides access to the full list of Jet Plugins which are available for setup and usage.
Here you can manage the following options:
- Check for Updates – hit the button to check if you can download and install any new updated versions of the plugins you have on your site.
In case there are any updates listed, you’ll easily keep track on the new plugin versions. They will be listed for each of the plugins, and you’ll be offered to make updates right from CrocoBlock > Plugins block. Take into consideration, that you are able to update your plugins in the Plugins > Installed Plugins tab in the WordPress Dashboard as well.
- Click Check for New Plugins button to check if there are any new plugins available.
If you have any available but uninstalled plugins in your CrocoBlock subscription, hit Install button, and the new plugin will be installed right away.

- The use of Synchronize Templates Library gives an opportunity to sync the existing templates which you can view in Magic Button library (headers, footers, sections, and pages).

Here you can take a look at the information about Kava theme:

Additionally, there’s also the Child Theme block. It provides information about Kava Child theme: if it is active on the site, or you use the parent theme only.
Turn on Enable automatic backup block option in order to make backups automatically before each update.
Also, Create Backup button is useful in case when you want to create a backup manually before making any changes within the theme.
In other words, with the Create Backup button you’ll easily create a backup and become able to load it anytime you need, or delete it if it’s not needed.
