Visual Composer Updates - Was included in theme but developers no longer exist

Hi,

I purchased a theme via envato (3D Printing) and the developers no longer seem to exist, if they do, then they are not answering any questions on the own forums, the theme included Visual Composer, but I’m now stuck in a situation where I can’t update my version as the developer is AWOL, but I don’t really want to buy a license, when I’ve already paid for a theme which included it.

Anyone have any suggestions on a fix?

Cheers,

Hello @EyekandiDesign

Welcome to the forums! Bundled plugin updates come via the author of the theme and when they update the download for that.

Thanks!

Hi I understand that, but what if the author no longer exists?
