I thought I’d try updating my WordPress and theme to see if that helped at all but it wouldn’t let me update WordPress. I kept getting an error I haven’t seen before. Since I hadn’t done a lot of work on the theme yet and was having problems with its functionality I deleted it and then WordPress updated fine. I then tried to re-install the theme with the newest update that I got this month but it won’t install. It keeps giving me an error.
About the VC plugin, I only had the one that came with the theme and it wasn’t working with the columns.
