Fix: Visual Composer Not Loading After WordPress Update

A common problem that I have seen with clients websites is that after a updating WordPress to 4.5 of higher visual composer stops loading.   Debugging the issue via your favorite browsers Inspect Element feature will likely show the following JavaScript error “Uncaught TypeError: $template.get is not a function”   Fortunately thanks to Amritosh on the WordPress forums there is a fix for this. First you will need edit the following file in your preferred text editor: /wp-content/plugins/js_composer/assets/js/backend/composer-view.js   Location the function html2element: function ( html ) { var attributes = {}, $template; if ( _.isString( html ) ) { this.template = _.template( html ); $template = $( this.template( this.model.toJSON(), vc.templateOptions.default ).trim() ); } else { this.template = html; $template = html; } _.each( $template.get( 0 ).attributes, function ( attr ) { attributes[ attr.name ] = attr.value; } ); this.$el.attr( attributes ).html( $template.html() ); this.setContent(); this.renderContent(); }, And replace it with the following: html2element: function(html) { var $template, attributes = {}, template = html; $template = $(template(this.model.toJSON()).trim()), _.each($template.get(0).attributes, function(attr) { attributes[attr.name] = attr.value }), this.$el.attr(attributes).html($template.html()), this.setContent(), this.renderContent() }, Presto! Your Visual Composer should now be loading again. PS: Remember to clear the cache if you are using any cache plugins   WP Bakery’s Visual Composer is a favorite among both developers and clients as it’s code is fairly clean compared to past drag and drop editors but sometimes bugs do arise.

Why You Should Not Use FREE Website Builders

Why You Should Not Use FREE Website Builders

Hiring a professional website designer is not always within your budget and one of the most attractive aspects of DIY website builders is they are free or come at a low cost. While they are great for startups and home businesses it is very important to understand the limitations of website builders before investing many hours into building your website. Each website builder has different limitations, lets go over some of them: Outdated Appearance The majority of websites that have been constructed using a free website builder tend to look like websites that were built in the late 90’s or early 2000s which is not a good thing when it comes to showcasing your business. Most business owners have spent a lot of time to ensure they offer a great product or service and an outdated website isn’t going to do you any justice. Logo All brands need a logo, some website builders only allow a text title in the header of the website and while this is fine for a personal blog it does not look very professional for a business or brand, if you are worried about the cost there are many websites that offer logo design for as little as $10. Domain Name There is a number of website builders that only allow you to use a subdomain such as mastersofdigital.freewebsite.com which does not look professional. For those free website builders who do allow you to register your own domain such as mastersofdigital.com.au they tend to only allow you to purchase a domain through them at a cost that is normally double the standard rate.

  The internet has become a basic Requirement for any business across Australia and with the growing number of cloud services being offered and more data being transferred every day it sure is great to have a fast internet connection such, but what about those who require these services and don’t have access to a fast connection?   Why would I need faster internet or more bandwidth? There are a number of reasons why you might need more speed and bandwidth which may be: The only internet connection you have access to is a slow ADSL with no Cable or NBN. Your office is located so far from the telephone exchange that your internet speed is severely degraded by the time it reaches your office. Your company has grown in size and one connection just doesn’t cut it. You are planning on using cloud backups or moving to cloud services but your connection isn’t fast enough. Well the good news is that there is a solution to provide you with a quality internet connection if you are facing one or more of those scenarios.   Method of Increasing Internet Speed The first option we always undertake is a test of the actual line speed to determine if there is any loss over the network. I understand some of you may think “Well I don’t have a large network” or “My network is only 5 computers and a router”, even so there can still the possibility of incorrectly setup software and faulty hardware than can cause internet speed issues, I have even seen ADSL filters or bad wall plates cause...
Exchange On-Premise or Office 365 Exchange Online?

Exchange On-Premise or Office 365 Exchange Online?

With Microsoft’s recent success of the Cloud based Office 365 system a lot of businesses are choosing to migrate their email systems from on-premises to the cloud, and with the launch of Microsoft Exchange 2016 around the corner there is q decision of whether to upgrade or migrate but the question for most business owners is am I ready for 365 and is 365 right for me? Do I need Office 365 Exchange Online? It’s a heck of a good question. There are many advantages of using Office 365 such as no future upgrade costs or server/hardware maintenance and the bundled Full Microsoft Office suite, it does seem very tempting.

For the purpose of a comparison it’s like the move from regular mobile phones to smart phones, you can keep the old one if you wish but you will miss out on the advantages and features of the new technology. What’s so special about Exchange Online anyway? Let’s go over a few of the key points comparing on-premises vs Office 365 Exchange Online. Upgrades and Office 365 Migration: Exchange Online has no upgrade costs to future versions and the updates and are applied by Microsoft themselves.
