      Yes, it is possible to develop new elements and then include those elements in Visual Composer. Also there are tons of addons with already made elements available – check out Addons section at our site.

    I’m looking for a developer that can help me create a new addon. not too complicated… can you guide me to finding a good reliable programmer for this task?

    1. Raitis ·

      Hello Esteban, I would suggest looking into Envato Studio or similar resource as there are guys who’s speciality is Visual Composer.

    1. Raitis ·

      There is no specific license necessary, yet I would suggest having direct license as 1) theme authors sometimes extend VC and it may cause problems with testing 2) you won’t be able receive latest updates directly, but will need to wait on theme provider to update VC for you, which again can result in not having your addon compatible with latest version of VC.

    Hi Michael, I am looking to develop a plugin that will create landing pages with few more additional features like optin form, link to subscription management systems like aweber and send welcome email. The plugin will provide pre-built landing page templates tailored for a particular niche. I am wondering, whether we will be able to bundle VC as part of the plugin and use VC to generate the landing pages using pre-built templates?

    1. Raitis ·

      Hello, according to licenses you can not bundle VC within it. What you can do is make your plugin compatible with VC, but VC itself must be purchased separately and not come as a package.

      1. Rocky ·

        Doesn’t the extended license provide the option to use in a single SaaS application, the plugin we are building is SaaS??

        1. Raitis ·

          It is, but the product which includes Visual Composer must be significantly bigger than Visual Composer. So the part of VC is not more than 50% of all product.

      2. Rocky ·

        To be clear, when I say bundle as part of the plugin, I want to add landing page templates to the default templates that are already available within VC and auto install the modified version of the VC every time someone installs our plugin/app. My understanding is, buying extended license and transforming it into In-Stock license by agreeing with the terms and conditions of usage, sales and integration will provide the option to do this??

        1. Raitis ·

          It seems that this is the matter of size I mentioned before – in your case it looks like you are adding something to VC which is not enough to create a product with VC included. You should look into Envato licenses – they have explanation about sizes and portions of it.

    Michael, thank you for letting me fantastic service. However, the problem occurred in my VC Plugin from a few days ago. Backend editor is the work well are, frontend editor does not work. so I’ll ask.. 1)Is there a theme this action should not only frontend editor? 2)Can you teach the way I can check about that why this problem occurred? I want to be resolved quickly this problem. Please help me as soon as possible. ps, I’m sorry I didn’t speak English well.

    1. Raitis ·

      Hello, this could be due to JS conflict. First make sure you are using latest version, if not, please do update. Next – try to disable all other plugins and if VC works properly – activate them one by one to determine which one causes conflict. If none of this helps you will need to open support ticket at support.wpbakery.com and share your site login credentials as this will require detailed investigation.

      Hello Michael,

      great plugin! Thanks.

      But there is a problem with the Visual composer version 4.11.2.1 (wordpress version 4.5.2 – theme “Miami”):

      with “CSS animation” (single image or text field)
      If I activate an animation f.e. “zoom”, the image or text disapear on the page (but the code shows the image or text????!!)

      Code:
      ( should here the addition “wpb_start_animation” or?)

      If I desactivate this function once again, the appearence is fine. (use only local with the activation).
      I use this plugin since a few of months. The described disfunction is just appeared after a while – at the beginning there have been no problems.

      I have desactivated all the other plugins, one by one – without resolving the problem. I have installed the plugin new several times.
      Question: which files use the “css animation” and where i can adjust the the visual composer?

      HELP! Please support.

      Thanks you a lot in advance!
      Petra

    While I would certainly commonly concur, in this case really instead insignificant. Likewise, Wikipedia possesses appear a good ways given it had been bashed regarding allowing for people to help modify content, there are lots of squads of moderators that will track as well as resolve the many faults standard people help to make whenever adding/editing the wiki post.
