Discussion on Visual Composer: Page Builder for WordPress

5540 comments found

We have a bug when using visual composer. It might be the weirdest bug ever.

When putting a phone number in a textblock, then a linebreak (shift-return, which should put a
out) everything works, as long as we are logged in.

When we are logged out from Wordpress, the linebreaks are gone. This only happens, when we are typing this:

Phone: +49 123 46 67 1 Fax: +49 123 46 67 1

if we change it to

Phone: +49 123456789 Fax: +49 12346671

everything works.

Do you have any idea where the problem is? It also happens when we replace the numbers with letters. So that after “bb cc dd ee” a linebreak isn’t working either. Remember: This only happens, when we are logged out.

Hi,

I added some images to my website. Now I would like to place a caption under the image. Can you help me? I can only find the option ‘widget title’ but then the caption is placed above the image.

Hi, currently there is no caption option for images in Visual Composer, but this task is in our Backlog and we are planning to implement it.

Hi,

We have purchased University education event and course theme at Envato and your plugin was included in the package. How can we activate the license of the Visual Composer so that we get the updates, as now it has no separate purchase code?

Regards, Adrienn

Hi, if you received VC within a theme there is no option to get direct updates. You have here 2 options: 1) ask your theme author to update VC on their side and push it to you 2) consider purchase direct license to receive direct update option and access to our official support.

Does this plugin support the use of shortcodes generated by other plugins I’ve installed?

Thanks.

Hi, yes, you can use our Shortcode Mapper and add 3rd party shortcodes to your element menu within VC.

Hi,

Is there a way to change the color of the background from the tabs? I’d like to have the background of my tabs to be the same as my default background for the themepage. The color of the tabs is grey-blue and I need it to be white. Could you help me with this?

Thanks in advance, Guido

Hi, you can add extra class name to tab group and then refer to it in Custom CSS Page Settings.

Hi,

Visual composer came with a theme I purchased named Legenda. I am running into the same problem as signexpo:

“how can you link to a particular tab in Visual composer ? Is there a way? i can see that each tab has an HTML id attribute and its also displayed while building the page. I think it will be a very good practice to wrap the tabs or other components in

tags so if anyone wants to link any particular control in visual composer he could just add a link to #{ID}”

I want to assign a specific ID to a tab so that I can place a link on the same page that will force that tab to open. I noticed that no answer was posted on that comment thread, so was just curious if a solution was found! Thanks

Hi, currently in order to add link to specific tab you need to follow this instruction: “Right click on tab’s title and “Copy link location”, open new tab in your browser and paste url. Tabs should open on desired tab section automatically.”

As for specific tab ID – it is managed automatically in order prevent duplicate problems and so on. And as for linking from one tab to another – there is no solution yet, so please follow our update notifications and log.

The link does not work to open the specific tab when pasted into a new browser window or when directed there through html. It seems pretty odd that visual composer doesn’t have this baseline functionality.

Hi, by default text is left aligned, if you want to change it you should edit text block and in param window WYSIWYG editor change text alignment.

As for spaces – there are spaces in text, just checked. It seems that your fontface+text size gives the feeling that there are no spaces, because they are really small.

No its not about alignment , i idea is i use size span 8 inside it span 6 using visual composer , this happen when i do this , but the layout work will when i use span 12 . check here http://awesomescreenshot.com/0ea3hv59c6

In your version of Visual Composer you have to use rows that their total is span 12. If you want to use just span 6 within a row you need to have latest version of Visual Composer then you can just use span 6.

Hello,

Just wanted to know if Visual Composer will work on a certain theme, please see below for the link of the theme (Got the theme a few days ago).

It was saying to purchase MotoPress, but I prefer Visual Composer instead.

THEME: http://www.templatemonster.com/wordpress-themes/49376.html

Thanks! Nazar

Hello,

Visual Composer works with no problem with any properly coded theme – properly coded means it is been coded according to WordPress codex. Actually almost all new themes are made according to WordPress codex if they are coded by skilful developer not some “weekend coder” :)

I have specified the size of the images showing in Image Gallery (style : image grid) and it was working properly. But today when I check my website again, the image grid effect disappear, instead, it just shows up the full size of the image in a column, what happen? Is it because I have upgraded to 4.3? Thank you~

How can I change the font of the element ” Page Header” ?

Thanks. :-)

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, do you mean Custom Heading Element? You can click on edit of this element and within param window there is option to choose from 43 Google Fonts.

If you are talking about Page Header – this is something added by your theme author as there is no such element in original Visual Composer.

Hi support, i have a WPMU installation. 3 sites, one main site and 2 sub-domains, same theme for all. A license how works in this situation. I need one or 3 license?

Startdust

Hi, Visual Composer works with WPMU with no problem. You need license and install it on general/main site to have access to VC from the child sites of your WPMU.

Hi,

I have visual composer (included with Strata theme) running on my website.

I just updated to version 4.3.3 (newest as far as I can tell) on WordPress 4.0 with my theme upgrade…. however, now when I open the custom CSS on an individual page, clicking ‘Save Changes’ does not close the CSS box… which means my CSS does not save. I have disabled every single one of my plugins to see if there was a conflict, and there is not.

Please advise. I don’t believe I have a product code to use your support pages due to the theme package.

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, the latest version which is also compatible with WP 4 is 4.3.4. So you will need to ask your theme author to update VC up to the latest version.

I am having an issue where when I edit a page with visual composer, it will not add a first paragraph leaving the first paragraph of text to look smaller or differently styled than the rest of the page. Have you seen this before, if not can I email you a screenshot?

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, we have not experienced anything like that and did not received such issues previously. Maybe this is something added/defined by your WP theme. Have you tried to change theme and see what happens? Also try to deactivate all other plugins and see if it helps. If yes, then activate all other plugins one by one to determine which one causes conflict.

Hi, quick question. Is there a way to lock content in certain elements using VC? Let’s say I have multiple users editing their pages or posts but I want to build a side column into the page that is restricted to them accessing that element. Is this possible?

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, currently you can restrict user roles access to specific elements as such, but not some specific part of layout. We will think for this one – will add this to idea and request list for future analysis. Thanks.

This theme came bundled with a template I purchased, as such I do not have a licence for the theme itself. How in the hell do I register on your support forums?

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, if you received Visual Composer within a theme there is no option to use official WPBakery support and receive direct updates. In your case you should contact your theme author for assistance on these questions or consider purchasing direct license for Visual Composer.

Hi, which version of Visual Composer you are using? Please be sure to update up to the latest – currently 4.3.4. Have you tried deactivating all other plugins and see if it helps, if yes, then activate them back one by one to determine which one causes problem. If none of this helps please open support ticket at support.wpbakery.com and provide us with site credentials so our support team can take a look for you.

Hello,

How do I make items full width in visual composer? for example, a single image or a button to be 100% of its container column, and resize dynamically.

Thanks

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, for single image you can set size to Full and if your image is big enough it will take full available space of container. Other elements also align to container width depending on their style(buttons do not get full width for example)

Hello,

I need to have a custom javascript code executed whenever an element is added to a page using frontend editing. Is there a way to execute my custom javascript code whenever user adds an element to a page??

Startdust

Hi, in vc_map you should add ‘front_enqueue_js’ => preg_replace( ’/\s/’, ‘%20’, plugins_url( ‘assets/front_enqueue_js.js’, FILE ) ), and in front_enqueue_js.js add your custom js.

Also you should check our KB at kb.wpbakery.com for more information.
