Activating WPBakery Page Builder on Elementy Theme


I have recently purchased the Elementy Theme and as part of it, the WPBakery Page Builder was included. This was one of the reasons I purchased the theme in the first place, but when I tried to activate it, it didn’t work and tried to redirect me to the WPBakery page.

Could you please help / put me in touch with the relevant people?

Many thanks,


If WPBakery Page Builder is included into a theme that you’ve purchased, you can’t update this plugin if you don’t have license for WPBakery. This mean, you need to buy a license for WPBakery plugin.

Of course, WPBakery and other plugins (if there are more of them, like Slider Revolution) will work fine and you don’t need to buy additional license.

But, when there is a new version of WPBakery (this is your case), you can’t update it until the theme author does not update the theme and version of WPBakery which is included in theme.

On other side, you can buy license for WPBakery (to activate it) and to have the latest version (easy update - no wait for theme author update) but that also can be a problem - what if the latest version of WPBakery is not compatible with your theme? In that case, you still need to wait until the author update the theme.

Thank you for your reply.

I tried using the WPBakery Plugin and insert a template, however, there is no ‘insert’ button. How can I use a template from the template library, please?


Did you read documentation from template and plugin how to use it?


Sorry, but I can’t seem to be able to locate it.

When you download template you have options download full template and in that zip file you will see documentaion file or folder.

Found it - thank you!
