I am trying to add the shortcode created by the Contact Form 7 plugin, but it keeps disappearing. After I save it and refresh the site, the contact form shows up, but the area where I added the code as disappeared. Is there a different way I am supposed to implement the shortcodes?

please update the plugin, it is a known issue:

You only have to enter your license code (if you are a purchaser of Shortcodelic or Geode use the license code of your product) as described in the documentation and you’ll receive the automatic update in a while.

Hello my pixgridder started to behave funny about a month ago when I try to align the content in the first two adjacent fields the other chnges the distance to the top and vice versa. I could show it better with sending a picture. Please let me know where I can send it to.

Yours Thomas.

Hello, I just upgraded from PixGridder to PixGridder Pro for one very specific reason. I like to use a combination of Sections and Rows on my site. I want to adjust the parallax with the background image in a Section. When I added PixGridder Pro I saw that the Section function disappeared and became only rows – thus removing the ability to add a background image.

You indicate that it’s an intuitive interface. I don’t have CSS knowledge. Do I need to to make this work as I would like it to?

Please help!


Hello Sondra,

first of all make sure to disable PixGridder free, otherwise that generates a conflict.

Then, I’m not sure to understand what the section function is… could you provide some screenshots to clarify please?

Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel,

I’ve deactivated PixGridder free.

Here you can see that with PixGridder free there is a choice between “rows” and sections>

Here I’ve selected a background image for my section:

When I disable the free version and go Pro, I can only have rows, thus removing the option for a background image for that part of the page:

I would like to be able to have more control over the image in the background of the section. Right now, there is a parallax effect that is causing the image to display incorrectly. I purchased Pro because it indicated I could have more control over these settings.

Here you can see how the parallax makes the image display:

I’ve adjusted the size of my browser window to show how the image should display, regardless of window size:

How do I:

1. create sections with PixGridder Pro? 2. adjust the parallax/styling options of sections background images with PixGridder Pro?

I’m sorry, but I think you are using a version of PixGridder free changed by someone: my plugin doesn’t have nor the section select box neither the gear icon after it. Maybe the plugin was included in the theme you installed, or the theme itself added some filters to edit it, I don’t know. You should contact the theme author maybe. Was PixGridder included in the theme when you installed it?

Hello Manuel, I have the Pro version and most recent version as well (along with Shortcodelic) and can not find any solutions to my issue, I made a video tutorial to show what I am running into. I host my videos with which is a comptetitor of Vimeo, so they funtion similarly regarding embeds. I have no problems embedding my Wistia videos on my Wordpress site when PixGridder is off, but when I use PG the embeds don’t work and I have tested several formats. Please watch my video to see the issue in detail, I am at a standstill.


I am on a Mac (10.10.5) with most current versions of WP, PixGridder, Shortcodelic, and Chrome.

Thank you, Dan

Wistia has a plugin that allows oembeds to work ( BUT I am still wondering why the PixGridder strips the iframe embed code? This is my main question. If I turn off PixGridder I can use iframes in Wordpress without issue. Please help.

Soooooo… I found an accidental solution. This is very very strange. I edited my page, I check the box to DISABLE the Grid Builder (I didn’t check the Remove Trace box), I then went through the Text view and added the full iframe embed codes where they belonged and they worked. So for the heck of it, I then UNCHECKED the Disable box and BAM! It turned the Grid Builder back on and kept all my embeds codes intact just like I wanted it! So, I am happy with it but wanted to let you know that very strange workaround. My page is not ready to be public, otherwise I would share the link. Thanks again. Dan

Wow, thank you for letting men know

Hi, I’m using your fantastic PixGridder Pro (3.3.3.p) in a theme called “Geode” – your plugin was included. I just wanna know if it’s possible ti use the plugin outside the “page”, in “portfolio” or “post”. It’s possible to? There is a way to simple activate the plugin for others than pages?

Thank you and best regards, Giovanni

Hello Giovanni,

yes it is but not recommended: if you use the page builder for posts and you decide to display post content instead excerpts on post archives this will break the layout. So, if you want to use the page builder for posts and portfolio items remember to avoid post content always on archive pages. I’m not responsible of issues deriving from this change.

To enable posts and portfolio items put the snippet below in “wp-content / geode-includes / includes.php” or in the file “functions.php” of a child theme:

update_option("pixgridder_post_type", array('post' => 'post', 'page' => 'page', 'team' => 'team'));

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Thanks Manuel, at the end of the day I did not need it ;)

Hi Manuel, there is a way to change the slug for Portfolio and its categories and tags? Where is the Portfolio post type defined?

Many thanks.

Yes I know Manuel, but I need it now!! Thanks again.

By the way, how can I disable updates?

Just remove the license code both from the theme and from the plugin option panels.

Manuel :-)

PixGridder keeps duplicating it’s columns inside of a row randomly. this has happened multiple times on multiple browsers, and we have even switched to the free version to see if it was an issue across the plugins.

It has gotten so bad that I have had to nuke entire pages and rebuild them in order to get it back to normal.

Is there a known conflict with existing plugins or theme settings that would cause this issue?

Okay new issue. I’ve installed PixGridder Pro and now the grid in the page view not showing up at all even though it’s registered. It hasn’t been disabled on the pages or anything.

Sorry, have you deactivated PixGridder free?

Yes I did. I figured out the problem, it was in the setting and the Default page was not clicked to have PixGridder apply to it.

Can’t get pixgridder to show up. Checked all plugins, conflicts. Nothing.

never mind. got it. :)

Hi, is there a way to un-register a license so I can activate on another domain? The original was installed on the development site but now the site has gone live, I need to register it there.

Many thanks Andy

Hello Andy and sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately the only way is to comunicate it to me. However you have up to 5 domains available. If you want to remove one of them (or more) just let me know which of them.

Manuel :-)

Hi, had no problem with the trial version of pixgridder, purchased the pro version and each time I install, I get this: Warning: POST Content-Length of 14959395 bytes exceeds the limit of 8388608 bytes in Unknown on line 0

1- I don’t know how to code, but am reasonably intelligent and can follow step by step instructions

2- I don’t know how to code…...did I mention that extends to updating style sheets and so on and so forth

3-I’m good to do a lot of stuff, but I was really looking forward to using your plugin to make my pages and their content much better designed for reading.

So, your help is appreciated.

Thanks, Daniel

Thank you, yes, I actually looked into that last night, however none of the files mentioned are in place and creating a php.ini file…well do I just open NOTEPAD and save then rename it to php.ini? Sorry, this is not really your job to do, and not one I have any knowledge about

Just uploaded via FTP SUCCESSO! Grazie!


we use PixGridder at work for one of our sites and just updated WordPress to version 4.6 (i think it was 4.1.4 before). That’s when PixGridder stopped working properly, content and grids are not showing up correctly in the editor. I believe an update for PixGridder is neccessary, could you please tell me if one is planned and when it can be expected?

Hello, could you tell me before what version of PixGridder are you running? Since if you’re talking about PixGridder free, I’m sorry, I can’t support it anymore. If you are talking about PixGridder Pro, version 3.3.3.p doesn’t seem to have issues with WP 4.6

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hi Manuel, thanks for your answer! We actually have the pro version, though it’s currently at version 3.2.5, so i guess i have to update the plugin. Just have to check back with my team to find out who bought it in the first place, because it seems not to be registered with this account.

I left a comment yesterday and I am not sure where it went? Maybe I posted it wrong. Anyway, I purchased your plugin as a part of the Geode theme, and I cannot update to 3.3.4 for some reason. Because I can’t update, I can’t edit my pages! The whole interface on the back end of Wordpress is missing.

How do I fix this ASAP?


I’m having the same issue reported above and I just bought the plugin (an extra license). The pixgridder interface just disappeared and all my pixgridder pages are broken. Any ideas on the fix for this?

Hello, please make sure you’re running the latest version of PixGridder (3.3.4). Otherwise go to “PixGridder option panel -> Register” enter your license details and check for the update after a while.

Let me know. Manuel :-)

Hey. PixGridder messes up tinymce; I lost my scrollbars and the editor window seems to grow a few millimeters in height every few seconds..

Just renewed license in hopes of a previous update would have fixed this. If I disable PixGridder tinymce works as expected.

Sorry for the late reply, I taught it was a JS bug, instead it was due to CSS, and this took me a little more. I’ll release an update ASAP, meanwhile you can replace the file pixgridder-pro/css/tinymce_frame.css

with this code:

html {
    background: #f0f0f0;
    height: calc(100% - 1px);
html .mceContentBody {
    -moz-box-sizing: border-box;
    box-sizing: border-box;
    background: #ffffff;
    min-height: calc(100% - 1px);
    margin: auto;
    padding: 20px;
img {
    height: auto;
    max-width: 100%;

Let me know (make sure to clear the browser cache before testing).

Manuel :-)

Thanks a lot Manuel. We will wait for the update. :)

How’s that update coming along?

Still getting a issue with naturalWidth

Sorry, could you add more details please?

Manuel :-)

Hi, I use PixGridder. As soon as I look at my website via the mobile phone and click on “Desktop Version” there is a problem. My lyrics are interrelated and not juxtaposed. How can I fix the problem?

best regards, Monique

Will this work with Woocommerce, category pages, product pages, shop page, etc?

Hi, I can’t activate the free version or the pro version getting the below message: “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error” “Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Using $this when not in object context…”

Using the latest version of WP.
