Hi!

I’m considering buying but have 3 main concerns: 1. On the demo site after tweaking a page the following error appears: “Your page layout was created with previous Visual Composer version. Before converting your layout to the new version, make sure to read this page.”. And it screws the page up if I convert (or I can’t modify anything else if I don’t). This would be nightmare if it was on my live site.

2. I’ve read VC doesn’t play too nice with standard WP functionality, and seeing it has some incompatibilities with certain plugins (for example, WPML) is a concern. Do you have any comment/documentation on this?

3. I guess not (because it would be super awesome), but… can we make templates for custom post types? I don’t mean a page to show a post, but to actually get a custom post type of the system and define with VC how each field will be shown.

I see you are very busy, so no hurries to answer. I right now have the feel this is a great plugin but it’s more on the shiny features side than the stability side (and this is usually too much of a drag for businesses in the long term). Keeping up with support, etc, for a one off-payment of $30 is also hard, so I hope you are able to do it. Please don’t take this as bad criticism, these are just worries from a business owner perspective.

Thanks a lot and good luck with it!

Hi!

1. We released another update just a few minutes ago and this issue is illuminated.

2. Today we are starting another sprint which is aimed to introduce full compatibility according to WP guidelines. Now we are almost there, there are just a few logical places where we can improve. Other then that, it’s already solid WP product for a long time now. In one of the next releases we will introduce WPML compatibility we already scheduled programming session with specialist from wpml team.

3. Yes you can. VC will work with any post type.

I hope Envato is considering other licensing terms, one time fee for a lifetime updates, sometimes feels low to me :)

Hey mixey!

Great then! About point 3… is there anywhere I can read on a bit more? Because being able to have single post and archive pages for custom post types with VC would blow my mind.

And yes, I’m a dev (not a WP one), so I know how hard this is… If VC works as good as you say, it is worth far more than advertised. Hope envato introduces an annual subscription option for you guys. Some studios have had to close for not being able to keep up with lifetime support & updates.

Willl be buying in a couple hours to test. Thanks so much!

Sorry I missed your 3rd question initially. What I mean is that you can use Visual Composer in custom post types same way as you can with pages and posts. So when you click Add new custom post type, instead of the boring default wysiwyg editor, you can switch into the Visual Composer mode backend/frontend.

Hey how are you? i purchased the Udesign theme in which it came with the Visual Composer Plugin. I purchased a few days ago. I am trying to update the plugin through the theme on wordpress in which it gives me the option but it will not update. Is there a way to send me an updated copy? My email is coachdavid@gmx.com. Thank you!

Hi Mixey,

Thanks.

mixey

Could you please send me your site login credentials so I could look for you?

Before I forget I have a few update requests please. Superb plugin it really helps.

1. More settings changes for tabs and other blocks etc. For example I have green tabs on my site and need white text in the tab not black. To do this the only way is to change hyperlink text to white, which then causes all hyperlinks to be white on a page through my theme. It would be far easier to have this and the colour of the tabs option for the specific set of tabs or other block. CSS should not be required for this it should be more simple. 2. Padding on rows should allow horizontal padding and a separate field for vertical. Sometimes you need more padding above and less to the sides. 3. When you add a template to a page and then edit the template this does not show up in the page. So if you add the template to multiple pages and then edit the template later the changes are not reflected in each page. As such you need to change each page individually which should not be the case. 4. Adding space in between columns is required. When I create 3 columns with image and text below it, the text can be too close together which looks untidy.

mixey

Hi and thank you for the nice words!

1. This is in our list already. 2. padding/margins/borders can be all 4 different. Please makes sure you are using latest VC version 4.1.2 we recently introduced new Design options tab for row/column/text block and few other elements. 3. Default template system allows you to save layout for future use (to insert it into the page within seconds) if you want to place same content on multiple pages, which should be updated as soon as you update your template, please have a look at Templatera addon. 4. Again, with new design options you can set margin for your text blocks or columns/rows.

top man I knew you would have this covered, keep up the good work!

Hello,

I have purchased the builder wordpress theme, that comes with the visual composer plugin. In my dashboard, I get a message saying that I need to update the Visual Composer and enter the license key. I have entered the license key from the builder theme purchase and I get an error saying that it is an invalid license. I have never used the theme on another site. How can I get a correct license? I am confused…Can you help me please? thanks

I updated to wordpress 3.9 I updated to visual composer 4.1.2

But in pages/ edit .. It is not working and not showing visual composer as normal. It only shows visual and text.

This is what it shows after updating wp and visual composer. http://lovebytrust.pro//lbt_info_pics/vc1.png

So same problems as mixey. I guess.

mixey

Could you pleas me your site login credentials so I could have a look? we don’t have this problem here.

WPML Multilingual CMS
I test it with the Version 3.0.2-a from WPML and with them works fine.
I hope it helps to find the Error.
