We want to disable the Front End editor and make our client only use the backend – how could we do that?

You should call function vc_disable_frontend(); Please read more at our knowledgebase: http://kb.wpbakery.com/index.php?title=Vc_disable_frontend

when i add a shortcode to a text block in visual composer it keeps adding br tags on the front end.

this happens when using symple shortcodes plugin and bootstrap 3 shortcodes plugin.

for example,

[nav type="pills"]
[nav-item link="#"] … [/nav-item]
[/nav]

gives me this on the front end

<ul class="nav nav-pills"><br /> <li><a href="#"> … </a></li><br /> <li><a href="#"> … </a></li><br /> <li><a href="#"> … </a></li><br /> </ul>

is there any way around this?

thanks!!

mixey

Try this formatting [nav type="pills"][nav-item link="#"] … [/nav-item][/nav] While you enter text in WYSIWYG editor, WP treats it as a simple text, not shortcodes. So you should write them in one line or within your shortcode you should, run a regex and replace br’s with empty string.

yes, i tried adding the shortcode to one line & it works, but it’s really hard to read / manage that way. i’ve seen a lot of fixes on the web that mention removing the autowp function that creates the linebreaks in the visual editor (regex), but it breaks a lot of other stuff. is there a function that will ONLY remove the breaks and paragraph tags from around shortcodes only? thanks again!

for example, i tried adding this one to my functions.php & it doesn’t work.

http://www.wpexplorer.com/clean-up-wordpress-shortcode-formatting/ if( !function_exists('wpex_fix_shortcodes') ) { function wpex_fix_shortcodes($content){ $array = array ( '<p>[' => '[', ']</p>' => ']', ']<br />' => ']' ); $content = strtr($content, $array); return $content; } add_filter('the_content', 'wpex_fix_shortcodes'); }

I’ve been looking all over for a video sitemap creator that works with Visual Composer, but I can’t find any. All the video sitemaps creators can never read what’s in VC. Do you know of one that works? I realize that it will say I didn’t purchase VC, but it’s pre-installed into a theme I bought on ThemeForest called Dynamix. Thank You for your help.

Visual Composer does not affect sitemap creator. So you should choose the one with the shortcode and then insert this shortcode into text area.

I got 4.0.2 with the Simple Great theme. Do I have to purchase for an upgrade to 4.0.5? Is their a way to use web fonts in Visual Composer’s text block?

In order to get latest updates you have two options: either wait for your theme author to update or you can purchase direct license for VC and receive latest updates instantly + use our support system.

Hi. Now i’m searching drag and drop page builder for my site. Visual Composer is exactly what i’m looking for. But i have few question about featured which i’m not find in Demo mode. 1. What css code or addons i need to stretch background image on full browser width? 2. How i can stretch a single column in row on full browser width? For example i paste some panorama short-code and would like shows up on full browser width.

mixey Author

Visual Composer acts in the way it is allowed by the WordPress theme you use. So if you choose a theme width 100% screen width for content, Visual Composer will work in a same way. As for the parallax, you can consider choosing one of available addons for Visual Composer vc.wpbakery.com/addons/

Kozhevnikov

Thanks for reply. My theme use not a full browser width. But for cover and background image, i would like to use all width. Is it some way to fix it?

Kozhevnikov

Sorry for misunderstood. Did you use for Visual Composer DEMO site box-mode?

mixey

Please ask your theme provider, sometimes it’s very easy fix and sometimes it might be not possible at all (without heavy modifications).

hello. I’m having problems with Visual Composer. My “maincontainer” for all web pages is 794px, and obviously I can not use your plugin properly to set column wrapping of pages. (the text wraps) I think it’s a problem of max-widht set on the VC. having purchased a theme included with your plugin I would ask if you can change this option even with a css class or directly from the plugin

mixey
mixey Author

This may be a css conflict, something from your theme overrides our css rules. Consider asking your theme provider about this or share url where we can see what is the problem.

mixey

I’m looking at your page and I can’t see problem, could you please describe again, what you think is wrong?

Default-user

Watch Now; I can not to indent elements. They are placed at the head instead of in separate columns as in visualcomposer. see attached picture http://postimg.org/image/w3whln3g9/

Hi,

How can I add non-clickable subheadings for “tour section” between the tabs. So I could group my tabs beneath different subheadings.

Here is picture about what I’m after. http://oi57.tinypic.com/2rfzrpl.jpg

Some shortcode for this would be nice.

Thank you in advance. -Eppu

Tour section currently do not offer such functionality, so you should look for a custom solution here. Maybe some sidebar menu plugins or something like that.

Default-user

What plugin would you recommend for my problem ? and would it replace current tabs of the “tour section” or do I have to replace the whole “tour section” altogether? Thank you for the trouble. -Eppu

hi, my site show 2 errors:

/wp-content/plugins/templatera/assets/css/themes/?ver=templatera_1 GET http:// /wp-content/plugins/templatera/assets/css/themes/?ver=templatera_1 403 (Forbidden)

and

resource interpreted as image but transferred with MIME type text/html The big problems appears only on pages using the VC posts-grid: the page loads short, then the posts disappears, only when i’m reloading the page, than posts are displayed. The problem is on every browser and system. These errors appears also on localhost, but the posts where displayed so i did’nt noticed it before i was online. I’m now looking since 2 weeks for a solution, but i’m not able to fix that on my own. It seems to be a jquery thing but i’m not sure. the url for these pages are: http://diefilmagentinnen.greenhouse-pr.com/vorschau/ http://diefilmagentinnen.greenhouse-pr.com/dokumentarfilme/ http://diefilmagentinnen.greenhouse-pr.com/kinderfilme/

Would you mind have a look on this problem? I’m despaired…Hope you can help Thanks a lot in advance

mixey

Hi, I just checked in FF@mac and I can see your grid without any extra reloading. Right after page load, you grid with images renders for me.

Can you point me to the tutorial where it shows you how to include templates with a theme? As in I build a theme and want to include some pre-made templates in the template drop down.

I just want to read how to do this before I buy.

mixey

Hi,

There’s no such a tutorial available, but it is relatively easy for a developer. Since VC is storing Templates in wp_options table in wpb_js_templates field, you can simply “dump” your templates and then import them on theme activation.

I bought Visual Composer a month ago and I already am experencing problems. I created tabs which are perfectly displayed in Firefox, Chrome and IE10-IE11. But when someone try to view the tabs using IE9, the tabs content are empty. Please help!

mixey

It looks like Visual Composer was included with your theme. Please contact theme author in this case.

Hello, I purchased a theme that included the composer built in. For various reasons I didn’t want to update the theme, but am being forced to update the plugin because I receive this message when trying to edit some pages:

“Your page layout was created with previous Visual Composer version. Before converting your layout to the new version, make sure to read this page. Convert to new version”

Unfortunately, I it wont let me dismiss the message and continue working on the old one, but dont have access to the latest version either.

Under plugins it is showing 3.6.14.1. I tried to update it by unzipping theme locating js_composer folder and uploading via sftp with the unzipped composer folder overwriting the older folder. However, that failed -white screen, no access to wp-admin or site. It was giving permission errors. Had to restore backup.

I noticed a considerable size difference between old (6.5mb) and new (2.5mb) as well for the updated version in the theme (3.7.3). Was that to be expected?

Can you please suggest a resolution to this? Is the only option to purchase and install plugin?

Thanks for your help.

Default-user

Figured it out – for some reason the close tags weren’t added when I made a new section:

That’s what caused the failure. Used classic editor to remove the newly added section with incorrect tags and it worked. Guess it was just a glitch. Thanks.

I bought the Posh Template which includes this plugin (a couple weeks ago). I noticed there is an update for this plugin now. when I execute to download and install update from wordpress I get an error and it doesn’t work. Do I need to purchase the plugin to update when it comes from a template? Thanks!

I purchased both your Visual Composer Plugin and I have purchased the “X” theme which includes a copy of your visual composer. I have two websites, which are both hosted by godaddy, one has a generic theme and the Visual Composer and the other has the “X” theme installed. With both sites, I have time out errors when trying to click on the “pencil” in VC. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to fix this? I have added the following lines to my php5.ini file: post_max_size = 190M upload_max_filesize = 190M max_execution_time = 120 memory_limit = 256M From what I have read on “X” support forum they have submitted a ticket with you for a solution over a month ago, however there has not be a solution added to to this their request.

mixey

This is true, but we are not able to trace the problem. It is happening only on godaddy servers… and godaddy is know to be very limited in resources

Hello,

I’ve attempted to use your plugin with the “X” theme on three servers.

1) Godaddy VPS 4GB RAM 2) Amazon NGINX+VARNISH Large Instance w/ Off Server Database 3) Digital Ocean NGINX+VARNISH+PHP5-FPM+APC 1 & 2GB VPS

Your plugin has throttled each of these machines and caused connection timeouts. On average, it takes an edit posts page 3 minutes just to fully load.

The creators of X notified all their customers well over a month ago that your team would be working to fix these issues.

What do you have to say? Do you have a solution? Server recommendations? Fixes in the process?

Thank you, Zack

mixey

Hi Zack, there’s a problem with godaddy that we are aware of, but can’t trace because it’s somewhere deeper in the servers setup, but it was related to shared hostings, your setups looks more then enough. Please send me a message through my profile page with more details and server credentials, I will try to look for you. This is exceptional case…

Hi, I’ve a feature request. It would be good if Visual Composer’s Frontend editor can also allow us to do inline editing, something like what other frontend editors are doing:

http://codecanyon.net/item/barley-inline-editing-plugin-for-wordpress/7385184

The reason is, it’s a little difficult for some clients to locate a particular text block in VC’s Frontend editor, click the pencil icon to open the editor window. I’m sure an inline editor would help them to quickly correct a mistake or update an information. I think this feature would add much value to a website.

Thanks in advance for your consideration.

Great plugin, but very poor documentation and terrible support. If you have a question you need to be ready to wait for an answer for very very long time. :evil: it is sad

5 Stars: Just wanted to say hi and thanks again for the great plugin. Keep up the great work and updates. :)

Hi There,

Great plugin!.. But when you make some content changes in Visual composer and preview changes, it saves the modifications without updating the WordPress page. So in short, previewing the page saves the modified content automatically so we are not able to preview the content changes before updating the page. Please assist..

Thanks,

Mycreativewebsols

Just forgot to mention that we’re using older version of Visual composer which dont have frontend composer.. This was packed with the purchased theme
