Updating Instructions #

NOTE: There is currently no migration path from classic Freeform/Freeform Pro to Freeform Next. Freeform Next can be used alongside classic Freeform/Freeform Pro installations if you're wanting to try out and/or switch to Freeform Next. We recommend you read the Switching from Freeform Classic documentation to learn more about the differences.

NOTE: If you're upgrading from Freeform Next Basic to Freeform Next Pro, you can follow these same instructions below. There will be no update button/process as it is not required, though you may see the Update button if the version number is greater (e.g. Basic 1.0.3 to Pro 1.0.6).

Freeform Next has its own Update Service built in, which means that every time there's an update available, an Updates Available nav item will show up in the Freeform Next add-on area of the EE control panel. You can then review the changelog there, or view it here.
