with this template the WP Bakery plugin should come with it, it says “WPBakery Drop & Drag Page Builder (save $34)”, but when I go into my WP dashboard it says “Hola! Would you like to receive automatic updates and unlock premium support? Please activate your copy of WPBakery Page Builder.”
Ah.. Since Visual Composer is coming as a bonus / free with the theme, users don’t get to have their own purchase codes, but it’s not required, assuming you need it to be able to update the plugin. The option to activate a license was left open for those who already have a license.
We always make sure to include the latest version when we release theme updates, so go to Plugins > Visual composer instead, this is where you update the plugins coming with the theme.
