Happy Review From Visual Composer User

I have to say that Visual Composer tool for template and layout management is the best tool I have ever used. It is extremely user friendly and with this friendly GUI I am able to build a very professional site without too much front end knowledge neither touching a single line of code. I give you a 10 star rating.

Very unhappy! After purchasing a 2nd license and installing on our site, i cannot connect more to the site :

Fatal error: Call to undefined function add_shortcode_param() in /home/geamari/public_html/wp-content/plugins/orbit/orbit.php on line 31

The 1st problem was that i cannot deregister the plugin from another site. I think that this plugin is not so important that the developer things, he has to make our life difficult to prevent his license. In any case, the product is a bullshit.

Hello, you are referring to another plugin which seems to be addon for Visual Composer and experiencing some problems. I would recommend you contacting addon author directly so he can check it out for you and help you out.

Hi,

When i open a post using Visual composer, the page never shows, the screen is frozen and shows an animated Visual Composer logo for ever. I use Visual Composer bundled with The7 theme.

Best regards Bernard

Hi, it may be due to conflict with some other 3rd party plugin. Please deactivate all other plugins and see if VC works properly – if yes – activate them one by one to determine which one causes conflict.

Hi, if you received VC within a theme there is no option to access official support as it is for direct customers only. You should ask your theme author for support or consider purchasing direct license for VC to be able to access official support and also unlock direct update option.

Hi,

Can you please tell how to defer the js_composer_front.js?ver=4.5.2 from loading in the head . Google pagespeed results are showing it as render blocking javascript and is penalizing my score because of this.

Just talked with our devs – by default we load it in footer, so maybe your theme author changed it – anyway to be 100% sure please open support ticket so we can confirm it.

Helllo,

This would just rock to make visual composer able to care about multi language, it could propose as many tabs as wanted languages and propose a language switcher as a widget :-) this would avoid uncompatibilities between VC and many multi language plugins and add a great value to VC, a damn new feat many people would love for sure.

Cheers,

Seb

Hello, thanks for your feature request – this indeed sounds really interesting and we will look into this in future.

Hi there,

I’m experiencing very slow loading times on the Post Grid.

I have a Post Grid showing my blog category and the load time is about 60 seconds+! I have over 1000 blog posts and have tried setting it to Lazy Load, Pagination and the Load More Button but it doesn’t seem to make any difference. Is this amount of posts a limitation for Visual Composer or is there a way to sort this out?

Thanks

Nick

Hi, 1000 really sounds like a lot of posts. Nevertheless 60 seconds sounds like way too much – we are constantly working on performance improvements and grid is already on our radar, but maybe you could open support ticket at support.wpbakery.com and share your site credentials so our support team can investigate it and see maybe there are some hidden problems.

is there a way to copy the same layout you created onto another page?

I saw this same question in your comments already and you mentioned that we need to find the custom fields option. I can’t find that and I don’t have that option in my “screen options”

Hi, you should look into Templatera addon which allows import and export templates created with Templatera for Visual Composer.

Hi,

I obtained a copy of Visual Composer when I purchased a WordPress theme on Themeforest. Does this give me the right to create a ticket in VC support or do I have to purchase VC as a standalone product? (that would be another $33.00 on top of the theme price of $40.00)

Anyhow, my problem with Visual composer concerns accordions. How do I get the ’+’ icon to animate to a ’-’ icon when the accordion is open?

I have spent hours searching the web for an answer to this but no can find.

Regards,

Mekong

Hi, official WPBakery support is avaialble for direct customers only so in order to access it you will need to consider purchasing direct license. As for your question in old accordion there is no such option to out of the box so it will require custom coding. We have new accordion elements in latest version 4.6 where animation is taking place so you should consider updating – as received in a theme you must ask your theme author to update VC and push it to you or if you want to have direct update option – same as with support you will require direct license.

I was wondering and the answer seems obvious to me but I just want to be 100% sure. There’s no way to buy this 1 time and use on an infinite number of sites correct?

Hi, yes you are right – in terms of licenses we rely on Envato and they do not offer multiuse license so for each site you will need separate license.

Hi, could you please help me in editing my excerpt, that is i want to increase the font size of excerpt used in my porfolio page using Visual Composer

Hi, you should go into Grid Builder and edit template you are using – there you can adjust excerpt element. Please see our kb on how to edit grid items: https://wpbakery.atlassian.net/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=3604489

I am not a buyer of this plugin buy my client is. So just asking this question on behalf of him as they are not much technical on this :) I would like to know how do I get left and right side spacings on the rows? As right now when I add rows, it simply goes all the way from the left of the screen to the right. And the row stretching options are not helpful. I want to keep some space on left and right of the screen mainly for Desktop sites. But unable to find how to do that.

Hello, please check you mail – answered already via private msg.

YOUR PLUG IN COSTS A LOT OF MONEY AND DOES NOT WORK.

I am sitting here staring at the logo flashing across the centre of the screen non-stop, I say again, it does not work.

Hi, it may be due to JS conflict with some other plugin – please open support ticket at support.wpbakery.com and share your site credentials so our support team can check it out for you.

Hello, I bought Ultimatum Themedesigner and get your demo version of visual composer. first question: what is the difference between my demo version and the version U buy here for 33$? Is the demo only for testing and not allowed to use it in a online project?

second question: I wanted to work with your post masonry grid for my landing page exactly like on your website http://vcpreview.com/shortcodes/post-masonry-grid-2/ at the bottom of the page. means: thumbnails with different heights, depending on the preview image I upload in the post. BUT if I create my own post masonry grid with all the settings and save it, the images are always in a square format. If I change the height mode in the normal block settings, it changes the settings for every item but I want to display them like on your website with different heights. how can I change this?

thank you very much!!

Hi, the Ultimatum theme do not have proper license for including Visual Composer in your end product so you will need regular license from WPBakery to use it. As for your question – make sure that you choose preset which is for Masonry style grid and if you design your own using Grid Builder make sure that when you include featured image the size is to to original.

Hello there,

I want to know if it is possible to edit the blog categories using visual Composer? For example i want to add a introduction text for every category, and maybe add some images.

Hi, Visual Composer works with pages, posts and custom post types – categories is a bit different and there is currently no option to work on it, nevertheless you can use Grid elements on pages to create blog category style pages.

Okay. Thank you for your answer.

Hello, since upgrading to 4.6 I am getting this error:

PHP Fatal error: Cannot redeclare hex2rgb()

The site is blank and cant access anything.

I am reverting to version 4.5.3 because this error is breaking many other plugins :\

Hi! Like your plugin. I have a feature request for coming update. It’s the “posts grid”. There is no “Design options” setting. I need that because I want no empty space after the item, and setting to “0” on the design options is the only way to force to get without this empty space that seem to be default.

I have set rows and columns and everything else I can think of to zero. But the space don’t go away, so I think I would need such option on the item itself too.

What do you think? And is this something you can consider updating? It would be great if one could set that “default space” oneself somewhere for your plugin. Because most of the time I try to get rid of this space. And then if I need it somewhere I could just change it there.

Thanks!

Hi, thanks for appreciation and your feature request – I will add this to our to-do list – as you saw few elements miss Design Options, but it seems that we will need to add it. As for now you can go into Visual Composer Settings Design Options – enable them and change gap. Also you can add extra class name to post grid and then refer to it in Custom CSS, yet this will require a bit of CSS knowledge.
