I’m currently using Visual Composer in my wordpress it is installed using my localhost. What i notice is that the animation for text is not working even though i already set it up. But for the images the animations are working. the wordpress version that i’m using right now is wordpress 4.3. thus this have an effect?

I hope you can help me.

Thank you


Please check your console, do you see any js errors there? Also note, that animations will work only with modern browsers.

I only have WPBakery and Visual addons activated, both came with the 7.2 theme I bought. Currently I cant edit any textboxes. In the edit box, I cant select any text or put the cursor anywhere at random. I tried opening a ticket but it wont accept my license code that came with the theme

Hi, There’s a difference between getting Visual Composer directly from us or in a theme. If you purchased from us, this means that you own license and you can access our ticket system and get direct and free updates (instant). If you got VC in a theme, that means that theme author has license and only he/she can download latest versions of VC and include it in the theme. You as a theme user, may use Visual Composer free of charge while you use theme that came with VC (because you have license for that theme).

Currently we are not aware of any problems with VC and latest WP version. Please contact your theme provider for theme related support.

Hi, your plugin is awesome! However since the last upgrade I’m having trouble to get rid of the padding in each Content Band when the top padding and bottom padding is set to 0px. There is always a 40px padding at the top and the bottom. I have to manually set it to 1px to make it sort of disappear. Could you please let me know if it’s a bug or there is something I’m missing? Thank you!


First of all thank you! It looks like “Content band” that you are referring to is a custom element added by your theme and in this case please contact your theme provider regarding support.

how to remove meta tag generator from code?

Hi, Place this code in your functions.php file:

add_action('init', 'myoverride', 100); function myoverride() { remove_action('wp_head', array(visual_composer(), 'addMetaData')); }

Hi All at WP Bakery – great plugin. But how can you add custom javascript to the advanced buttons?

We’re looking to include GA event script on button clicks:

<script>ga(‘send’, ‘event’, ‘button’, ‘click’, ‘Label’, 1);</script>

How can I put this in there? Custom CSS?

Thank you! you can add custom css classes to your buttons and then use that selector in your js to fire some events. But this is beyond the scope of VC plugin, so be ready for some custom js to be written by you or your developer.

I update my plugin and gave this error.

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 144640 bytes) in /home/dynsocial/public_html/wp-content/plugins/js_composer/config/map.php on line 1840

Could you please help me?

1. Was there any change in VC(since 4.5.2) that makes default value from <select> input NOT STORED in shortcode after saving options? I can see this behaviour in vc_row, which I have customized for my theme.

2. Where there any info about such change for developers?


I would like to add VC Tabs. Each tab got a “Section ID”. On that page (with Tabs) I would like to link that Section ID via e.g. an Image.

Is it possible to open Tabs via link via Section ID?

Thanks for a feedback, Roman

Hi and thanks for a great plugin – I use it a lot. I am just taking on a redesign for a new client and looking over their system they have 3.5.5 installed but it says the plugin is up-to-date. How do I upgrade it? Thank you.

Hi! The parallax background setting seems to zoom into the image about 30%. Is it meant to crop the background image so much? Or is this a known bug that will be fixed soon? Other parallax background plugins don’t seem to crop image like this… they display the full image.

Hi Team, I had an issue with VC on my server. This is first time i had this. My site CPU usage spike to 100% when we d editing a page & if someone visiting our site in Arvixe server.

I use WP-performance-profiler to see which plugin use the most resources, and i says VC. i’m not sure if this server based or themes compatibility issue. I got this plugins from my themes, and i also had regular licence of it, so the theme should be fully optimised for it.

this is the only one site i got the issue, another site hosted in same server & use same plugin don’t have it. Now I move the site to Bluehost temporary and it work just fine. I just can’t check the CPU usage in Bluehost. Anyway I need to know what cause the issue actually since I prefer to host it in Arvixe. Thanks
