Quick Question Mixey…

Are the tabs able to be attacked via css so as to have images there in lieu of the words.

I want to give indication of a time line, and each click of a section of the timeline (only 3 pieces) would uncover corresponding tabbed content.

TIA .!.


IDEA : You can run a small jQuery script that will add class names or IDs to the tabs links, and then target your css code to that IDs/class names

Thanx Mixey.

Welcome back from vacation.

As it turns out, I went in a different direction and solved my need with use of an accordion slider.

Again, thanks for your suggestion, and thanks for your mad skillz

hello i seem to be having this slight error if im editing the page in the dashboard it shows as my changes accepted and saves them, however if hit the update button on the page it self and click the view page link it doesnt show my updates outside of the dashboard, at first i thought it was a browser issue but not i clear all browser history and data then try 2 other browsers they all show the same an updated view in the edit mode of the page but not on the customer side of the pages any help would be greatly welcomed thanks


Make sure you are making changes in the Visual Editor mode.

Love this plugin, saves me tons of time!

Is there a way to control the button width/ size? I’d like to make all my buttons the same width on certain pages.

Thank you!

You can override default css rules in your theme css file.

Purchased this plugin and it totally disabled my themes. Basically on all my sites. example. I had to deactivate the plugin to get my site to function properly. Reading all these good comments but plugin does not work on most themes…

This is really strange. Please get back to me via my profile page, with detailed description and your site urls. I’ll take a look my self. Most likely there’s something wrong with your themes. May be there’s no a wp_footer() function in the footer.php

HI. I purchased your plugin, and already using. Gret job. I have a question: these plugin is compatible with the plugin “Styles with Shortcodes”? I cannot use both at same time.

Just now, thanks.

Thanks for the complements! I haven’t had a chance to test it with that plugin.

Same as Continuum, I’m also having the following error:

Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in **/wp-content/plugins/js_composer/shortcodes.php on line 644

Simply MIND BLOWING plugin – a revolution infact!

It changes how WP has been working for last many many years and may put many WP template designers out of work

Honestly, Envato has severely under priced it!


Thank you very much for a great comment! I’m really glad that you are enjoying!


I’m unable to show posts from specific categories in the teaser grid.

Wouldn’t it support categories from custom post types?




Thanks for spotting that, I’m putting that into my todo list.


I am getting the following error on a page:

Catchable fatal error: Object of class WP_Error could not be converted to string in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/js_composer/shortcodes.php on line 644

The visual composer underlying code is: [vc_column width="2/3"] [vc_gallery type="fading" onclick="link_no" img_size="420" images="82,83" width="1/1" last="last"] [/vc_column] [vc_column width="1/3" last="last"] [vc_column_text width="1/1" last="last"] [/vc_column_text] [/vc_column]

I did send an email to you 4 days ago …

Any ideas ?

Sorry I was away on my vacation, I’ll take a look into your email soon.

No rush… It’s not as if I have been waiting for nearly a month … I have clients, deadlines, and a good mind to have this refunded !

According to line number where error appears looks like getimagesize() function generates that error. I can take a look from the other side what is going in if you’ll email me your login information.

Personally I never catch that error on my sites/servers.

Hello there! The company I work for purchased this plugin tonight and I was thrilled to start fiddling with it. One feature I noticed that seems to be missing is the ability to add blocks within blocks.

Any plans to support this? Such as dropping a 1/2 size block into another 1/2 size block is essentially quarters the grid and allows two elements to be next to each other (such as having an image block next to a text block inside one block)

Sorry if that was a bit confusing. Basically a layout like this (incase you still don’t understand, hehe)


and so on…

I’d love to know if this is a feature you’re looking to add, if not I think this would be a great feature to add :D


Actually this is already implemented. You can add top level containers and then drag and drop inside of it Content elements blocks.

Get this error on initial install:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare remove_accents() in /includes/functions.php on line 0

Make sure that you are running latest WP version

Got the software to work, I just started over on the site and reinstalled everything fresh and all is working. Is there a quick way to specify the total space that you page has?


I’m glad you figured that out! What do you mean by page space? If you are talking about the width, then you should check Settings->Visual Composer page.

I purchased the product, but when it puts in the items, it leaves code on the window.

ex. I am text block. Click edit button to change this text.

I am text block. Click edit button to change this text.

Click edit button to change content

I am tab

This is what I see when its viewed online.

If you know what could be the problem, that would be helpful.

I am using genesis 1.7.1 as the framework.


Hi, That “dummy” text is used as a starter, you should click on the elements edit button and change that text with your own text.

Extra class name doesnt seem to be working. Is there anything im doing wrong?

Add class name in box. Save. Update. And the wordpress output code is exactly the same with no extra class.

This would seemingly solve my 1/8 problem!


Extra class name simply adds an extra class to the container div, it let’s you to target that specific in your css rules.

yes but it doesnt work. like a lot of other things in the program. It has nice features that when you try to use them they judt dont work

I am interested in buying, does it work on wordpress 3.2.1?

If not do you offer a full refund?

Thanks, Stephen

Hi, Thanks for the interest! Yes it’s working with 3.2+

Hi there, nice plugin!!

I was wondering if it does work on WP 3 .2.1?

Also would be real good if you can support Google Chrome and Opera, so it can be integrated on clients projects.

Thanks, Fred

Hi, it’s working with 3.2+ Didnt tested it with opera but it works great with Chrome.

Hi, I purchased this plugin planing to use it with WordPress 3.0, but it doesn’t work. In the text editor, when I click on the “add image” button, nothing happens. (With WP 3 .1, the image dialog pops up correctly.)

Can you fix that, and if yo, how soon?

Also, it’s a quite annoying that despite a button that allows me to switch between “classic” and “composer” editor, the actual content is processed only one way (composer -> editor). Meaning that when I make changes in the composer, they are reflected in the editor, but not vice versa. Meaning that once content is edited in one editor, there is no point switching back to the other, because the changes would be lost.

I am sure you are aware of this. Any chance you are already working on true two-way editing already? Any chance to include that feature in the next update?


Absolutely loving this plugin! 10 Gold Stars!!! I know you can’t support other plugins, but if there are plugins that add a button into the WordPress editor (to insert a feature when clicked), will that button show up within the Visual Editor text editor?

Yeap, it should work! Because Visual Composer makes a clone of the default WP editor, so everything should be in place ;)

P.S. Thanks for the great rating!

I done some changes – but how do you make the columns less than 1/4?

is there a way to copy the same layout you created onto another page/post? or do you have to re-drag and drop everything again?

You can actually achieve that with just a little of copy pasting. Follow this steps:

  • Open original page and click edit
  • Scroll down and fiind “Custom Fields” section. If you can’t find that section, click on the “Screen options” located at the top right corner and make sure that “Custom fields” is selected
  • Copy content from “wpb_composer_html” field
  • Create new page and scroll down to the “Custom Fields” section
  • Paste text that you copied from other post and click “Update” button
  • Reload the page (click F5 or cmd + r)
  • You should see the cloned layout now
