I am having an issue with attributes that are not opening or breaking. You identified it previously and fix it. Said it was dd that needed to be Uppercase. it happens very often now. Can you permanently fix it?

ab-themes

This could be due to some other plugin that handles shortcodes, we have never had this issue, also nobody reported something similar.. I will send you email replay.

I am still having the same issue and now I cannot change the width of the section I added. When I want to 2/3 and 1/3 there is no line to move and it stayed on 1/2 and 1/2..Please HELP

ab-themes

We are checking your issues and will reply you by email

I am looking for an easy way to create a page to show a custom post type I have created. Will you plugin do this for me?

ab-themes

Hi,
you will need to develop shortcode by yourself. This plugin is used to create content with shortcodes.
Cheers

Quick question … does this plugin work with any theme I purchase via Themeforest? Or are there limitations to it…?

Thanks!

Hi @ab-themes !

So I bought the plugin and it works beautifully except when I use it with my theme … (BORDER by Pixelgrade) it doesn’t play nice within the Wordpress Dashboard. I can edit pages, posts etc. but when I go to the theme settings, I get a blank white page … no error or anything.

As soon as I disable the plugin, I can access the theme settings page without a problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks! Great plugin! :)

ab-themes

Hi,
probably the theme uses same options framework as plugin and there is some sort of collision. Please start a thread on our support forum or send us an email with temporary WP and FTP login, I like to check what is going on :)
Cheers

Hi Presale Question.

Does this plugin work with AJAX based themes? I have used Visual Composer and it does not work with AJAX loading themes. Please confirm if this work with themes that load pages via ajax?

Thanks

ab-themes

Hi,
i think it must work, but haven’t tested it yet, please send me an email at support@ab-themes.com and we could test it :)
Cheers

ab-themes

Hi, I can confirm that it does not work fully with AJAX theme out of box. Scripts are not fired, you would need to copy some JS scripts and fire them on successful AJAX call event to initiate things like parallax, progress bars, accordions..
Cheers

My site utilizes AJAX loading…

How do I make sure that the plugin that I’ve paid good money for works correctly? Is there a script I can use in the custom CSS or custom JavaScript sections of my theme? Or what file do I have to edit in the root directory?

Please help – I feel like if I can’t get this plugin to work correctly that I’ve wasted money… :(

Thanks!

ab-themes

Hi,
I have replied on your email..
Cheers

I just wanted to give a shout out to the developer of this Plugin and the Support that he/she/team provides. 5 Star rating just for that alone.

Nice job.

ab-themes

Thank you! :)

Hi there,

The theme I use is Codeus. It has a shortcode importer when I can import elements not normally included in Wordpress into the Visual Editor. I have tried other page builder plugins and so far they have not allowed me to import shortcode into the page builder rows. Will your plugin allow me to import shortcode into it?

ab-themes

Hi,
it is possible to add other shortcodes in our plugin by describing shortcode attributes in array (php code)..
Cheers

Hello ab-themes, Do you have this software for static website?

Cheers, Melvin.

ab-themes

Hi,
unfortunately this is only a WP plugin and we don’t have other version..
Cheers

I saw that others are also interested: Is a WordPress WYSIWYG Editor block still in the works?

I’m considering purchasing this plugin because it enables custom page layouts, is intuitive, easy-to-use, and integrates extremely well with the WordPress admin interface style.

Is it possible to disable content blocks? If so, how would this be done: a PHP function in the functions.php file of a theme?

Thanks so much!

ab-themes

Hi,
we have implemented WYSIWYG editor, but it is not WP native editor. Content blocks can be removed in plugin’s PHP.. Currently we are working on some changes that will make possible to completely control and change plugin’s output from theme.. :)
Cheers

BaneyDesign

Thank you for your reply! I’m really needing the native WP Editor, as I can currently control the button availability and layout through a PHP function. I’m still considering this plugin, though. Thanks again!

ab-themes

No problem, thank you :)

Hello, you write that this plugin comes bundled with following themes: 1. EVORA 2. DZEN 3. DUAL MOTION

Is this correct? And if yes – will these themes beeing update in the future as if regular purchased?

thx – John Meier

ab-themes

If you purchase any of those themes you will get this plugin with theme, not other way.. I will rephrase this in item description to be more clear.. Cheers

When I try to update a post, it would state shortcode has not attributes…then the code no longer works.

ab-themes

Hi,
please open a topic on our support forum and give us access so we can check. Tnx

Hi good job,

1) This plugin allows you to create more blocks? if you have documentation as to make it easier?

2) I put the ‘Drag Drop’ within my panel option in my theme? ie I can make it run within my theme option for the user to create ‘home page’ within the manager my theme options without having to create it within a post. ?

ab-themes

Hi,

1) Yes, plugin has ability to add more blocks (shortcodes). It is very easy for someone who knows code, it is a regular shortcode and one array which describes shortcode’s attributes and features. It has some about it in documentation but the best is to look how other blocks are added. We are working on an update and plan to release it in a day or two – this process will be even more simplified and theme will have more control over blocks

2) I haven’t tried this but it sounds interesting.. :) I think that it could work with small adjustment. We have put IF statement to check if it is a post or page admin page and then we are including JS which takes the rest. So if that statement is removed i think it would be initialized and work on any TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor instance in WP.. I will try it and if works I will add an option to enable it on all TinyMCE instances.

Cheers :)

Hello! Any news about the next update?

ab-themes

Hi,
we are working on it this moment, it will be released very soon :)

Default-user

Ok, thanks. Could you provide a more specific time frame? I am in the finishing part of a project and would like to know if i can use it or not.

ab-themes

Hi,
we have uploaded new version. :) It can take up to two days for review process, but it is often approved same day.
Cheers

Hi,

I was wondering if we have already purchased the Dzen theme from ab-themes, if we were able to update the Drag and Drop Shortcodes – WP Visual Page Builder for free? We’ve run into some bugs that we were hoping the recent updates would fix.

ab-themes

Hi, we will update theme soon so you will be able to download it. If you want to get it before that send us message from profile with which you have bought theme and we will send you newest version.
Cheers

Hi, I’m using your shortcode for columns and they are responsive, but the columns get really small when scaled downm so is there a way to make them stack instead of scale down? Thanks

ab-themes

Hi,
we have found where the problem is and we will issue an update immediately.. It is in css/responsive.css at lines 36-52, all classes should be completely low caps… so replace DD with dd..
We will issue an update immediately, I think it will be approved by tomorrow. :)
Cheers

Hi,

I got the Drag and Drop shortcodes included as part of the package with the “Revelance” theme and it seems to be a pretty essential part of building pages as the theme was advertised, however it seems to be disabled in the page editor. The “Drag & Drop” tab exists in the editor as well as the “Add/Edit Shortcode” button but both seems to be dead links when clicked on. Has this problem been reported before? Is there an apparent solution? I’m running version 2.1.0 and is the most recent update available.

Thanks

ab-themes

Hi,
you probably have some JavaScript error from other plugin which breaks it. Please inspect it in console, you will probably be able to find out which one. If not please open a topic on our support forum and provide us with login data.
Cheers

Killer plugin, couple questions: - Is it possible to remove shortcode options without negating my ability to upgrade to newer versions? - any luck/hope in switching cleditor with wp_editor?

ab-themes

Hi,
yes you can do it in newest version, it searches for the shortcode file in theme’s dnd folder. Every shortcode can be overwritten that way, or even disabled if file is empty and you can update plugin without loosing changes. We are still working on editor change.
Cheers :)

Hi,

1-how can I remove all the shortcodes already present in the plug-in? I deleted the single files in the folder “shortcodes” but in the list view they continue to exist without attributes. I have to remove some references in some other files?

2-How can I integrate the plug-in in my theme without having to upload by plug-in -> Add new?

3-What is the best way to add my shortcodes? have I to create my files in the shortcode folder?

BYE and congratulations for the work!

ab-themes

Hi,

1. no, if you remove single shortcode file from shortcodes folder it should not be available any more, I have just tried and it worked all.. not sure why you still getting list, do you maybe have some caching plugin?

2. not sure exactly what you mean? there are couple of things to do to integrate it in theme. copy dnd-shortcodes.css from plugin to css/ folder in theme, also you can add any shortcode file in theme’s dnd folder. plugin will use that files instead its own, that way you can make changes to shortcodes and styling and no worry when updating plugin..

3. to add your shortcode just add new file like the one in shortcodes folder. you can add it in plugin or in theme’s dnd folder

Cheers :)
