Do we need to input a license key to get updates for Genesis Blocks and Genesis Custom Blocks plugins please?
If so, where do we find the keys?

There is thread about this in the Genesis WordPress Facebook group. This is what David Vogelpohl (WPEngine) says about the key:
...the key is not necessary to run the plugins. That key enables auto updates. Pro Plus customers will have unlimited access to updates for Genesis Blocks / Custom Blocks Pro in the StudioPress portal just like you do premium themes.
Further in the thread, someone asked about updating many sites manually. That's the way it will be for the time being until WPEngine can provide a way to auto update the plugins for ProPlus users.

I don't do social media, but I've just applied to join the Genesis WP group, so I 'll be able to see the whole post soon. I hope.
In the meantime I'll update manually if necessary.
PS. Thanks for the quick reply 🙂June 14, 2021 at 11:08 am #504253
@philip-gledhill until they get the activation key resolved, you would need to manually download and update any site you've placed the Pro plugin on. They are working on a resolution to this right now, but wanted to make sure people had copies of the plugins.

I am not able to fully use the Custom Pro Blocks, even though the two plugins are available for me to download in my StudioPress account section. I can even view and use other theme-specific Genesis blocks but I can't do any customization. I thought that this might be due to not having a license (I don't see any licensing info at all). Can you please advise?

@sanderson the plugin will work without the license key. The key is only to receive updates. Both plugins should work right after they have been installed and activated. However you should be using Genesis Blocks Pro and Genesis Custom Blocks Pro, not the free versions.

FYI If you would like a way to remove the license notification on client sites for Genesis Blocks Pro until the license issue is resolved, I asked Phil Johnston of WPE if there was a code snippet we may be able to use to hide the License Notification for Genesis Blocks Pro in the dashboard. Phil created this code snippet and I've tried it and it works. Maybe users can just drop that in the functions.php file or in a core functionality plugin until SP/WPE finds a solution to the license key.
