We’re getting in touch to let you know about a compatibility issue in the Visual Composer: Page Builder for WordPress versions prior to 126.96.36.199 (releases prior to 16th April, 2016). Previous versions of this plugin will not work with the latest version of WordPress (version 4.5, released 12th April, 2016).
This is an important compatibility issue and you should take action now.
What You Should Do
In order to resolve the incompatibility you will need to update your theme to include version 188.8.131.52 or later of Visual Composer.
To enable improved Visual Composer version checking in the review process, we have added “Visual Composer 184.108.40.206” to the “Compatible with:” attribute list (see your items’ Edit tab). Once updated, please select this attribute for all affected and updated items. This will assist us in prioritising these item updates and identify other items that may still be affected.
Item attribute changes via Edit tab are saved independently from resubmitting file updates. Please update the item’s attributes first and click “Save Changes” before proceeding to upload the updated files and clicking “Submit Files for Review”.
There is a bug in Visual Composer 4.8 to 4.11.2 that prevents users updating Visual Composer via TGM Plugin Activation. If your update instructions advise users to update plugins via TGM Plugin Activation, you should consider providing alternative update instructions. Once users have completed the update to 220.127.116.11, they will be able to update via TGM Plugin Activation again in future.
Items that have not been updated to this version by the end of Friday, April 29, 2016 AEDT will be soft-disabled, requiring an update in order to be re-enabled.
What You Should If You Have Already Updated
When you have updated your theme to include the version of the plugin 18.104.22.168, please set this attribute on the item’s Edit tab when uploading for review.
Please ask questions in this thread and we will try to resolve them as soon as possible.
Thanks for your assistance.
