Visual Composer not working since WP 5.0.1

Support » Fixing WordPress » Visual Composer not working since WP 5.0.1

  • Resolvedskoelman



    I just updatet WP to v5.0.1. I am currently building a website, using the SweetCake theme from Themeforest. To edit pages, this theme uses Visual Website composer, for backend as well as frontend editing.

    Since I updatet to 5.0.1, Visual Composer is nog working in the backend editor anymore. I can only use the new, fancy block editor from WordPress.

    I already searched in several settings but couldn’t find a solution yet.

    Anyone experienced the same problems and/or has a solution?

    Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

I had this same problem. Then I remembered there was this announcement. You can download the classic editor plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/classic-editor/). Install it and all your problems go away. It disables the Gutenberg editor that comes with WP 5.0.

Good luck
