    Hi,
    So I wanted to update the types plugin and it said something like:
    toolset types cannot update because your site's registration is not valid

    I then deactivated the plugin, did the update and reactivated it. This removed the error and updated the plugin. Is this a solid workaround for this known bug?

    Also, I read here: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/was-useful-now-it-requires-purchase/#post-10335165

    It is however correct that the Free Types as available here has a limited time.
    Toolset Types is now part of the Toolset Plugins as a paid plugin

    Does this mean that the free plugin is on its way out and will not be updated in the near future anymore?

    Thanks

    The issue you experienced is due to some specific versions which are confused about the next proper update (it assumes updates from the “paid” version instead of the free)
    The solution is to remove the current installed Types and download a fresh copy from here.

    It is correct that by end of 2018, the free version will not be supported, updated or else maintained by us.
    You can read more here about this.

    Thats pretty bad. Could you tell me; by deactivating the plugin and register the custom taxonomies through a function/other plugin, will it leave all the custom terms in place?

    Yes, since they are saved in the Database that should work.

    You can try this as well first on a local test site, so you will not have to risk on the live site (I recommend to always first do tests on a staging site, to be safe)

    Ok thanks, goes the same for CPT and custom fields?

    Yes, but custom fields have a wpcf- prefix and complex fields (holding more than jsut a string as value) might be complex to display afterwards.
