Hi, thanks for nice words.

As for your issue – understand problem from perspective of design , but this is how image work in browser(gets rendered). There is no easy way out without custom solution where you will need developer.

From our side – this is a good point and we will think about such element in the future.

I got Visual Composer through the theme I purchased, Bridge by Code Interactive. In the licensing documentation I do see Visual Composer documentation and licensing information, but it does not show an Item Purchase Code. Where can I find or get an Item Purchase Code?

Also, I am running version 4.3.2. What are the major differences between 4.3.2 and 4.3.3?

I have some bug issues that I can really use help resolving such as…

1) Spacing between content in the visual editor. Every time I put spacing in-between lines or headings by using tags such as <- br -> or <- p ->, etc. they get removed. How do I create space between lines?

2) Using both regular editing and visual composer option is not working properly. Either I can use Wordpress regular editing option or the Visual Composure only option, but not both. How do I resolve this?

3) The “team” feature does not keep the description after adding one. Every time I add a description for a team member, it gets removed after saving the page.

Thank you in advance for answering these questions, and resolving these issues. Much appreciated!

Hi, if you got Visual Composer within a theme you do not have item purchase code for VC. So in order to update you have 2 options: 1) ask your theme author to update VC and push it to you 2) consider purchase direct license for VC

As for other questions: 1) These tags has been cutted out by TinyMCE, not Visual Composer 2) VC wraps content created without VC, but it is not able to completely parse complex layouts. So it it recommended to use VC once you have it 3) Team feature is element added by your theme author so you will have to contact him regarding these issues.

Thanks.

Hi,

What is the difference between 4.3.2 and 4.3.3?

How can I use both Wordpress and Visual Composer editing at the same time as this is an option offered in VC preferences?

The “team” feature is an option in VC preferences, but you are saying the theme creator made this an option in VC preferences?

I don’t have TinyMCE installed as a plugin. Is this something you are using to build VC? Do I need to update TinyMCE it to fix the problem? If so, where do I update TinyMCE?

Thanks for your answers to all these questions!

Hi,

i need to add a custom field for ordering the posts in the posts grid. The custom field will contain a date. The posts should be sorted by this date. (I need this for sorting offers)

Perfect would be, if posts displaying on the posts grid would be deactivated, when the offer isn’t actual anymore.

Thanks for your help!

Hi!

I want to make user submitted posts with videos in Gravity Forms. Can this be shown in visual composer through any of the elements in a nice way?

Thanks!

Hi, if you want your users to add video to your site through Gravity Forms and then display them using VC grid, currently there is no such option, but we will consider this one as a future feature.

This plugin has had way over 50 updates. When you update more than 50 times, you get barred from downloading it again, leaving you with an outdated plugin that may have security vulnerabilities and may not work on current versions of WordPress and or themes.

If anyone knows where I can download the current version outside of Codecanyon, I would be most greatfull.

wpbakery

Downloading outside of Envato isn’t legal, since no one except Envato can distribute it (due to our exclusivity agreement). Please see this page for more details: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/215/54/how-many-times-can-i-download-a-purchased-item I’m sure Envato will be happy to assist you.

I’ve contacted Envato twice with no reply regarding this matter.

The above link says…

“A file can not be downloaded more than 50 times in total.

It is considered that these are reasonable limits which should not be exceeded under normal usage circumstances”

So in essence, what they are saying is, under normal circumstances, you should not keep your plugin updated. Or, they are saying, your plugin is not normal, because you’ve released more than 50 updates.

I’m very confused… What do people do, who’ve have your plugin and have kept it updated over the last 50+ updates? And what is the reason for the 50 maximum updates?

I am already looking for other markets having found this issue and I’m sure I’m not the first to find this strange limit unacceptable! Furthermore, it will also fuel a black market where people start offering Envato items to download for free for people who have exceeded the 50 limit, which is going to be a lot of people! Im sure something like this has already popped up!?

I can not update the visual composer. Error: Error! Envato API error: Username and/or API Key invalid. Please, good advice!

Startdust Author Team

Hi, I see that you have purchased VC so you should have valid data. Please check once again – as there were problems with Envato server. If this is not temporary problem, please check if everything is copied/pasted correctly. If this is Envato API Key problem you should contact their support as we are not able to help there.

Stupid silly question! Is this compatible with any theme? :)

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, Visual Composer works with any properly coded theme which has defined wp head and wp body. All themes on ThemeForest should work with VC with no problems.

Hello,

Plugin does not work with the multiple languages. Is there some bug OR its already tested and verified that it works? We have used plugin http://www.qianqin.de/qtranslate/ and when we change language, composer disappears.

Hello, is it possible to change the grey colour of the “Tabs” or “Tours”? Can’t find an option in the plugin!

edit: Is it possible to have text above an image? Just like “hovering” over the background? Can I use different layers?

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hello,

You can add extra class name and then in CSS settings tune Tabs and Tours according to your wish.

As for images, now you can use Design Options to set background image for container and place text element there.

Thanks dor your reply. In this image-case: Just the part of the image will be shown which the text covers? How can I use a Image with, for example, 500×300 and place some text rows an a big button on it?

With the width you should align to column sizes in grid and for height you can add additional element Empty Space element. Or you can add padding to top and bottom.

And it’s up the individual authors to show that, and how can that be done, thru sales and support and actualization of there “master peace”. I am not an code , but a advanced user/creator and in some way still learning, become the INTERNET is a constant changing place. So you are probably asking why am I ranting this? It’s because I love you guys and you are always improving your plug in, which now is @ v4, and you hear what users what and try, the best way possible to give that request!!! But still I am writing thsi little rant here, because all over the net a certain page builder is mocking you product,and you guys do have front page builder.

I am trying to wrap a div around a single image block. Basically I have placed two raw html blocks around a single image block so it looks like this: [raw block] single image block . It is disregarding the custom html and closing the divs, causing the block not to be wrapped around the custom html. Can you provide any help on how I can achieve this?

Hi, if you want to extend single image element you should follow this method from our KB: http://kb.wpbakery.com/index.php?title=Shortcode_Templates_(markup)

Hello there. I am writing because I have a problem using visual deal with Advanced Custiom Fields. The editor does not work. If I remove ACF, while Visual Composer works. You have an answer ?. thank you

I’ve found a bug/conflict between VC and All in One Event Calendar. Using their Upcoming Events widget in a regular sidebar works fine. Using it inside a VC page works fine. EXCEPT if it’s in a VC tab. Putting the Upcoming Events widget or shortcode in a VC tab causes an error [Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 103809024 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 8208 bytes)] or sometimes a Server Misconfiguration error. Interestingly, if you have no events it works. Add even one event and it causes the error. If Visual Composer is deactivated, the Events shortcode works.

It’s been tested on a clean install of WP using the Twenty Fourteen WP theme and only these two plugins to eliminate theme and other plugin problems. Same results.

For now I’d be okay with a work-around so I can put the Upcoming Events on a tab until a true fix is available.

How can I get this to work? Any code I can patch? Something??

Thanks!

Hi! I was checking past comments to find if there’s a quick way to have anchor sections since i’m planning a one page theme and I’ve noticed that months ago you wrote you were going to add support for row IDs. Is this still a planned feature? Thx.

Will this work well with my own wordpress theme(www.kswp.webk.eu)? I’m considering buying this plugin, but I don’t know if this suits to my situation. Best regards, Blaze :)

Sorry, but I replaced wpb_map() by vc_map in all theme but the error appear.

Fatal error: Objeto wpb_map erróneo. Es obligatorio un atributo base in /homepages/14/d532401444/htdocs/wp-content/plugins/js_composer/include/helpers/helpers_api.php on line 4
