Is it possible to create a custom menu and place it somewhere other than the traditional location? Say further down a page? Between content?

Hello, Visual Composer works with content part of your theme so you will need to make sure that content inserted with VC is located within content part.

just posting this so others can find it – looks like the Disable Comments plugin breaks Visual Composer. When Disable Comments is enabled for a post type used by Visual Composer, the VC editor does not load on the front end or back end. https://wordpress.org/plugins/disable-comments/

Hello, thanks for the information. I will forward this to our dev department to check it out.

Hello Dear Author,

I am highly interested in buying this for my website http://tomatoheart.com which is currently running on MyThemeShop SociallyViral Theme.

Though I do have some pre-sale question and I will be happy to have these get answered here.

1. I have done 100+ modifications in my current theme to make it look good. What if after activating Visual Composure, I again want to return to my old theme. Can it be done without losing any previous theme settings, I mean by just deactivating the Visual Composer plugin?

2. Do Visual Composer modify any of actual theme codes like Header.php, footer.php, index.php , function.php etc ? If not, after activating this plugin, will it create its own header.php, footer.php etc or will take information from the old theme?

3. The problem with Visual composure is that , technically it’s a plugin, but it behaves like a theme. ( You must be knowing “theme” actually means the “the front end styling and decoration” of a website. What are the things that I should keep in my mind before activating this plugin? Will I loose anything? How is it different from activating a new theme? As you know there are many articles for guiding on “Theme Changing” like http://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/checklist-15-things-you-must-do-before-changing-wordpress-themes/

But what should I keep in my mind if I am not changing a theme but only activating a new plugin.

4. I already have 35 active plugins on my website and only 3-4 are resources hungry , others are simple light-weight plugin. How about VC. Is it resource hungry. WIll, it makes my website slow? There are 100+ threads asking “Visual Composer slowing the website.” I am just worried about the site loading aspects of this plugin.

5. What roles the primary theme still plays even after installing VC? What do you suggest among these two options 1. Basic pre-installed free WP theme + VC 2. Premium theme like SociallyViral+VC?

6. Does VC have there in-build Social sharing widgets with Open built-in Graph, Schema.org compatibility? Or I will still need Plugins like “Facebook Open Graph, Google+/Schema.org, Twitter and other Meta Tags Plugins” ?

7. Any known compatibility issues with plugins like Yoast SEO,Lazy Load, WP Super Cache, CloudFlare, SNAP etc.?

8. Is there anything specific you want to tell/suggest me after visiting my website http://tomatoheart.com ?

Since my website is not just a money making side project but this is my whole career and startup. Hence I am very serious about knowing things before I make any changes. Please take your time and answer me these question so that I can wisely take decisions on whether I should purchase this plugin or not.

Thank you very much.

Hello,

thanks for your interest in VC. 1) Visual Composer works with content part of your theme, but take into account if you create a layout with VC you need to have plugin activated for content to be displayed 2) VC does not modify theme codes, it aligns to theme 3) Visual Composer is not used to work with header or footer, only with content area. 4) It is more related to the content you build with VC. If you will create huge pages with lots of content and tons of sliders it does not matter if there is VC or anything else used – it will slow things down a bit. 5) Again, as VC works only with content part you will still need theme for header, footer and sidebar. 6) There are no such options in VC so you will need to use additional plugin for these features. 7) We ensure full compatibility with Yoast. As for other plugins – we did not received any complaints recently 8) I think you have a great website which of course can evolve in the future as there is always place for improvement.

Thank you very much for your quick reply.

There are few confusions still left though. As you said VC works only with the content area and for layout purposes. Does it mean that I will still be able to use the Default widgets like “MTS Subscriber Widgets” “Facebook Like Box” that came with my Premium WordPress Theme?

What about Top and Footer Menus. Does VC provide different visual layout options for Logo, Header, NavigationMenu etc? I think this should because these are the major design elements of any website’s look.

There are few one-sentence answer questions:

1. Can I achieve Fixed Top menu with VC?

2. I have seen a “Scroll Up” button at right bottom of many VC powered pages. Is it the function provided by VC or it’s theme function?

3.Different Column Scrolling Grid : Suppose I made three column of 5-6 visible posts each on the homepage. Can It independently scroll up and down or made fix without actually moving the home page something like what we see on Facebook newsfeed ( moving) and right column( fixed) ?

4. Does it enable unlimited ajax based auto-opening of new pages for any category?

5. As per your reply above. The custom codes inside Header.php, footer.php, function.php will still be active even after activating VC plugin. Hence I won’t need to write or insert additional codes ( for tracking or various other functionalitites) again. RIght?

6. What about the custom codes that we have inserted in custom-style.css . Will it remain valid. Please answer.

I don’t know if so many questions are frustrating for you but please try to be little patient and reply here.

Thank you.

Hi

I have made a clone of website which was using your composer, now, in the new website, composer is not loading, the layout of composed web page does not load (therefore I cannot edit it) and front end editor loads endlessly.

What shell I do? Purchase another licence? Will everything work then? Please note this is a development version of website.

Regards

Hello, for each website you will need separate license of VC and also you will need to make sure you have latest VC installed.

Provides easy but a guide or purely general FAQs on this topic .

Hello, I bought the envato theme REPRINT on January 2015. It included your visual composer plugin, but actually it doesn’t work and it seems like I should re-pay for it. Is it possible? Thank you, Simona

Hi I follow this guide https://wpbakery.atlassian.net/wiki/display/VC/Create+New+Param+Type to create new param type. In the javascript example you use click event but it doesn’t works for group ‘params’ element (only for the first param element). If I add another element the button click doesn’t works. I know that my support period ended but if you can help me it will be appreciated. Thank you

Hi there,

I have rows that are set to be hidden on desktop visable on desktop and vice versa for mobile.

http://gosportmartialarts.co.uk/opening-and-class-times/

The red line at the bottom of the page is content set to display on mobile and tablet but not on desktop, but it is still visible on desktop. this is occuring across multiple pages on my site and I require a solution for the layout.

Paul.

Hi,

One question: Why all pages have this meta box “_vc_post_settings” while there is not any changes or usage of VC ?

I’m asking this question, because when i export my content.xml there are a lot of unsuable VC post_meta, Example i see a lot of this codes:

<wp:postmeta>
    <wp:meta_key><![CDATA[_vc_post_settings]]></wp:meta_key>
    <wp:meta_value><![CDATA[a:1:{s:10:"vc_grid_id";a:0:{}}]]></wp:meta_value>
</wp:postmeta>

When i removed all of this codes from content.xml, Almost 100kb decreased and then import process did faster.

Maybe you can check when settings are empty or default, don’t save it or delete that meta box.

Cheers

Also you can delete “_wpb_vc_js_status” meta box when its false.

It is compatible with WordPress 4.5.3 ? Thanks

Hello. Several of my themes do not work well with Visual Composer; if I buy the license with you, this (1) license acquired, helps me to update several Web pages and how long would actively purchased license? Thanks a lot

Hi there,

I tried to hide Visual Composer on the side menu item from Editor role by White Label plugin but seems has no luck. Is there anyway to hide it from Editor role?

Thanks,

Hi there – I am having trouble with visual composer rows not responding to settings with regards to images that are set to fully cover rows as background images. I have tried everything I can think of to fix the issue, and am convinced it may be a bug or oversight in the latest versions.

This feature was working, but after updating VC to the last two versions (it is completely up to date now) I edited a page that was working, published the page, and now no occurrences of the Maximum width, full cover images are working right – instead they scale only to 100% their actual full width and stop there.

As a result I wind up with rows that only show the photo in the background of the row up to about 3/4 of the page width, then just white to the right of that.

I have tested with new rows, and I have added background color to see if the row itself is being cut off, but the row is fine – it’s just that the photo no longer scales up to fill the full width of the row.

I am definitely outside of my support warranty on this one, but I think this may be a problem with VC, and not something I am doing wrong, so I think it may be a bug or oversight, since it happened after making a simple text change to the page in question.

I have two pages – one that is still working because I haven’t updated the page with any changes lately:

http://www.scottbuilders.com/delivery-methods/

...and the other which is having problems:

http://www.scottbuilders.com/services-and-capabilities/

They look similar, so it should be easy to compare the two and see what the issue is. If you don’t see the problem your monitor size may not be large enough.

Hope you can see the problem and are willing to help me with this. At this point I have a site that needs to be fixed because of the problem, and it needs fixing fast.

Best regards!

I should further note that I was running with VC 4.1.1.2 when the failure occurred, then tried updating to the latest version (4.1.2 I believe) but that didn’t fix anything.

No other plugins were changed or added when the problem occurred.

Hi all .. I love Visual Composer.. this is intended to help ;) If you want to use the Video module with YouTube and are frustrated because you can’t get rid of the ‘related videos’ ?rel=0 there is a great simple plugin that effects WordPress on the foundational level called ‘Hide YouTube Related Videos’ it works! and does nothing else. Great!! ~ https://wordpress.org/plugins/hide-youtube-related-videos/
