While not breaking the front-end of your site, an invalid license will present warning banners throughout the Control Panel that cannot be permanently dismissed
To purchase an ExpressionEngine Pro license you can click on the “Purchase Pro License” link in the Control Panel (found at the bottom of the side navigation menu).
