I have been upgrading all the Visual Composer elements on my site, some have updated fine, however Visual Composer itself is not showing up in the plugin directory even tho i have downloaded your copy from here: https://www.8theme.com/download-plugins/page/2/ and unzipped and uploaded the js_composer folder to my plugins folder, but it doesn’t show up in the listing
I found the problem, the Zipped copy has another js_composer folder inside the first and so wordpress can’t see the contents until you bring them forward into the first js_composer folder. Can I suggest you fix your zipped version?
also, when i tried to use the code you supplied for the license for Visual Composer, they do not recognise the license and an error code is given back, can you confirm the license codes please?
You can find the latest version of Visual Composer here https://www.8theme.com/download-plugins/
Upload the extracted folder via FTP to wp-content/plugins directory.
You don’t need Visual Composer license. All plugins are external extensions which are included into theme because for each product we purchase “Extended license” and that’s why we are able to include it into them. This plugin works fine without activation and you can always get actual version if you want directly from us. We update plugins with theme updates from time to time so plugins will be also updated with each next theme update. The option with registering of the plugins has been already added to plugin and this only allows you to get automatic updates and support for this plugin directly from an author if you need. You don’t need to register this product because it is not required but if you want to get those features, then you need to purchase this plugin directly from the author. This is how it works for all themes on Themeforest and not only in our case.
