Updating Instructions #

Solspace Freeform uses the Craft Update Service, which means that every time there's an update available, it'll show up in the Updates area of the Craft control panel. You can then review the changelog there, or view it here.

Craft Updates Service

NOTE: If you're upgrading from Freeform Basic to Freeform Pro, you can follow these same instructions below. If updating to the same version number, there will be no update process as it is not required (though one may be triggered if the version number is greater and includes a migration, e.g. Basic 1.6.3 to Pro 1.7.0).

To download the update, simply click the download button (you'll be taken to your account area on the Solspace site) and download the updated package for Solspace Freeform. Then follow the steps below:

  1. Within your Craft sites /craft/plugins/ directory, delete the freeform folder.
  2. Unzip the download package and copy the new freeform folder to your Craft sites /craft/plugins/ directory.
  3. Visit the Craft control panel and let the upgrade routine run.

Transitioning to Freeform Pro from Freeform 1.5.x (and older) WITH ADDONS #

All users that have purchased addons for Freeform (such as API integrations, widgets pack) have their "Basic" licenses automatically upgraded to Freeform Pro licenses. If you're transitioning from Freeform 1.5.x and older WITH ADDONS installed (such as API integrations, widgets pack) to Freeform Pro (which includes these addons), please follow these special instructions:

  1. Download a copy of Freeform Pro from your Solspace account area.
  2. Within your Craft sites /craft/plugins/ directory, delete the freeform folder.
  3. Unzip the download package and copy the new freeform folder to your Craft sites /craft/plugins/ directory.
  4. Visit the Craft control panel and let the upgrade routine run (if applicable).
  5. For any API integrations you have configured, go into each and switch from the Legacy version to the Pro version (e.g. switch HubSpot (Legacy) to HubSpot) and save.
  6. If you have the Widgets bundle, unfortunately you will need to recreate all widgets as there is no way to switch them similar to how it's done with API integrations. When recreating them use the widgets that have Freeform Pro in the name (e.g. use Freeform Pro Recent instead of Freeform Recent). Delete all old legacy widget usage.
  7. Once all transitions are made, you may uninstall all Freeform "addons" (integrations, widget bundle).

NOTE: Freeform Pro will continue to work with legacy addon plugin versions set up as well, but we strongly encourage you to make the transition.
