Pb with Cat Builder (no VC)

    I try to design specific layouts for categories.

    I have two pbs so far :

    1) No VC on Cat Builder Post Type page

    So I’ve built a layout with VC in an post then copy paste the code into the Cat Builder post type.

    Then I tested it with a category by selecting the custom cat builder.

    2) Category page displays two layouts
    – the custom cat builder
    – AND a build-in cat layout (it may be the first built-in layout but not sure) beginning with “LATEST ON ….”.

    Globally, this may be due to the VC pb or maybe not 🙂

    I’ve noticed in the Visual Composer parameters that the Cat Builder Post Type doesn’t appear in the post types list who can use VC…

    PS :
    – I use the VC plugin build-in with your theme.
    – I’ve deactivated all plugins except those of the theme : nothing changed.

    Any ideas ?

    Hi again !

    Ok, I’ve looked at your demo site and begin to understand my misunderstanding 😉

    My point 2, is neither a bug nor a pb, but it’s the normal display :
    It seems that the Cat builder customizes only the top of the category page, not the post listing.
    Am I right ?

    My point 1 is still an issue (even if the workaround seems to work)

    “Pb” means “problem” 🙂

    Visual composer \ About = 4.5.3

    For information, I work with a multisite wordpress and the site is not the main site.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Chris,

    Is there Backeend Editor button on the Cat Builder editor?
    Please make sure you use Visual Composer plugin that comes with theme (tailored version).

    Thank you

    To be mure : I’ve deleted the Vcplugin and let your theme reinstall your prepackaged VC plugin.
    Still no Backend Editor Button.

    I might be totally worong but isn’t it strange that the Cat Builder Custom Post Type does not appear in VC settings where you define which CPT can use VC ?

    Thnaks for the update.
    The cat builder seems to work fine.

    But I have a message after updating VC packaged with your theme (4.6.2):
    “Important notice: You have an outdated version of Visual Composer Design Options. It is required to review and save it.”
    I have to click on a “Open Design Options” button : it loads a white page with an error message explaining I’ve not the access right for this page.

    Actually, I’ve noticed that in VC settings I hadn’t access to these VC “Design Options” (used for customizing the VC basic colors and css styles). I should have access to the Design Options to better match the Vc styles with my customized JMagz Theme.

    Thank you

    hi Chris, may i know where you get those notice? i doesn’t get those notice while using and editing jmagz.

    also which design option do you mean? we are disable default VC design option on purpose. We notice alot of people mess with the themes especially for people who just use the themes, and they will complain because of it. that is why we need to disable it so easier for people to achieve what we provide.

    Thank you
