I have WPBakery Page Builder as part a a few themes I have purchased.

The last site I have been working on we want to make multilingual using the plugin polylang. The permalinks structure it setup to create directories for each language. English is the default. e.g. mysite.com/, mysite.com/it/, mysite.com/de/

Instead of rebuilding the layout of each page, I want to copy the code from the classic view of the english version and paste it on the German and Italian versions.

Will I run into an issue with the tab_id=? If yes will it work if I manually change the last 2 digits of each tab_id to “de” for the german and “it” for the Italian. e.g. tab_id=”1555829967959-972c626a-f1c4” to tab_id=”1555829967959-972c626a-f1de” of tab_id=”1555829967959-972c626a-f1it”

I would like to say about the Developers “How To’s” – Adding Custom Shortcode to Grid Builder. It is not very clear. I am not able to figure out how to retrieve the post id and use it and then out put some custom taxonomies.

I found that {{ post_data:ID }} can show the id on the website but I couldn’t use it like get_the_title(ID);

Hello, The post id can be used to retrieve any related info by creating a custom template variable as per: https://kb.wpbakery.com/docs/developers-how-tos/adding-custom-shortcode-to-grid-builder/#AddingCustomShortcodetoGridBuilder-Customtemplatevariable You can also check such an example in our default elements.

Help! I use WPBakery Page Builder and Responsive Flipbook. I have had both plugins since 2016. All of a sudden WPBakery stops showing the flip book on the page. I have worked with flipbook for 2 weeks and they said since I can create the books and don’t have any problems with flipbbok, the problem must be with WPBakery. I know longer have support with WPBakery and I can’t afford to buy more support at this time. But I am asking for a solution because both plugins were working just fine until about a month ago. Nothing has changed on my end. I have Wordpress 5.1 and WPBakery 5.7.Can you offer me a solution offer me a dolution. Thank you, I hope someone can help me.

Hello, We are not sure as to how the flipbook plugin works, but if it renders using a shortcode, then you can add it via text block element to display at your end. You can also confirm this by adding the plugin shortcode via default WordPress editor to check if there is any difference between the two.

Does the grid builder can custom a product grid template with [Product Labels] and [Product Star Rating] ?

Image as https://pasteboard.co/I9N47C8.jpg

Hello, The grid builder does by default does not have elements to display the product labels and rating. However, you can create a grid element as per: https://kb.wpbakery.com/docs/developers-how-tos/adding-custom-shortcode-to-grid-builder/ to add it to the grid builder and then use it in the custom template.

Latest version of page builder causing posts/pages to not update. Goes to 404 page instead. Have disabled all plugins and isolated the problem to WP Bakery page builder. If its enabled the problem occurs, if its disabled the problem goes away. Have switched themes as well. Changes cannot be saved/updated as result. Fix? Thanks.

Hi, I’ve just update The7 template including The7 WPBakery Page Builder. After update it, the post layout become classic view. How to make the interface back to normal again? I can’t edit the post. Pls help.

Hello, You can check the role manager settings of the plugin to make sure that the editor is activated for pages and the Gutenberg editor is disabled.

The icon will break after changing the domain. How do I handle it?

Hello, After changing the domain, please make sure to reset the WPBakery Page Builder -> Design options to save the custom one’s and then default one.

I bought a theme packaged with WP Bakery. I thought if I paid to register my own license I’d get access to better support, but I didn’t. Just a forum with a place to submit a support ticket. There are so many things that were just acting wonky. I bought Templtera, turns out, that was messing up my site because it went back to its normal functioning when I disabled it. Anyways, I’ve been using VC for years and it’s always been a hassle. Decided to try elementor and had an amazing site pretty much immediately. I’ve switched and I’m not coming back. I’ve heard lots of good things about Beaver Builder as well. If WPBakery wants to compete in this new age page builders, you’ll either need to revamp the code so it’s stupid easy and doesn’t require support, make better videos, and have someone available for online chat, at least during business hours. And you shouldn’t require people to pay for “extended” service. If you support your product, the product users will support you. Let me know if you need a critical beta tester. I’ll go through everything with your team and explain what is so confusing, what is broker, and how to make better documentation, especially with instructional videos. Get a copy of Screenflow, a decent mic and go to town. This plug in needs help, desperately.

Hello I have this error “It seems that both WPBakery Page Builder and Gutenberg are enabled. You can disable Gutenberg in the WPBakery Page Builder General Settings.” the thing is that I have it disable with still there, and now I can’t load or upload any image.

How can I disable lazy load, or override in css opacity, so my images can appear on edge and safari browsers?

Hi guys is there any documentation on how to make the grids load quicker? I am getting the loading 3 dots and then the posts or images (depending on what grid I am using) load but it takes too long, is there any setting or work around? Thank you

Hello, Unfortunately at present we do not have a setting to disable the preloader. We will add it onto our list to check if we can implement such setting in future.

Hi, i have a special question/idea:

Is it possible to define a finished page-layout with wp bakery with all text and images and use this layout for all pages of a custom post type? We insert placeholders and have some shortcodes for text-spinning. Its like a master-page-layout to use in many subpages (auto select for custom post type).

Hope you understand what i mean

Hello, You can save the layout as a template and then set this template as default for custom post type under WPBakery Page Builder -> General Settings. This will make sure that any new post that you will add will have the layout automatically added for it.

Hello,

I have a problem with the “Image Gallery” element. It is not working when I use external links for images.

Is it a common issue?

I am using your plugin in under a theme license and they told me to contact you as it is not working even if the default WordPress theme.

Hello, can you help me ! i tried this tut: https://kb.wpbakery.com/docs/developers-how-tos/control-default-presets-in-content-elements/

i added your example : do_action( ‘vc_register_settings_preset’, ‘Second preset’, ‘vc_column_text’, array( ‘content’ => ‘Short and simple.’ ), false );

to my theme functions.php file,

but no defined element added to My Element tab

Can you show me how to make it work ?

Thanks!

Hi. I am building a site for someone where they have staff biographies in columns on a page that I am building using your page builder. They want only the first three lines of each showing – followed by a ‘read more’ which would reveal the rest of the words for that person’s biography. I have tried doing this using the WP ‘more’ tag in the text box, but it does not seem to work. Am i doing something wrong, or is there a different way to do this with WP Bakery? Thanks! Gareth

Hi, Unfortunately, the more tag breaks the shortcode rendering ability of the plugin. To implement such functionality, it will require some custom js and css code. The login will be to add a div around the content which will be hidden by default using display css property. By tracking the mouse click event on read more link, the class added to div can be toggled to display/hide the content on mouse click.

Hey WP Bakery,

Have noticed a bug in the latest release with WordPress v 5.1.1 WP Bakery Page Builder 5.7

It’s the only plugin activated on a website. The admin recently noticed when saving page updates that the admin would redirect to the front-end 404 page.

Upon investigation, it seems to be when a ‘Single Image’ element has a link set, the page cannot be saved. When you remove the link from the element, the page saves fine.

Doesn’t help if we install Classic Editor or Remove Gutenberg plugins either.

Tried with the default 2019 theme and doesn’t help so I know it’s not a theme issue. Can you please take a look and patch please.

Hello, I’ve seen some complaints about the speed of the plugin. Is it possible to strip some of the unnecessary elements and shortcodes and leave only the once that we would use on our site in order to make it run as fast as possible?

Hello, You can disable the non-required elements under role manager. The plugin only loads the element related code if it is used on a given page.

Hello Support,

Our theme already loads Google Fonts, but so does WP Bakery. How can we stop WP Bakery from loading Google Fonts? Do you have a setting or a php snippet?

Hello, I am afraid, we do not have a setting or snippet to disable the Google font loading. However, we might add such a feature in near future.
