How to update WPBakery Page Builder plugin?

The WPBakery Page Builder plugin comes bundled with the theme. We’ll always make sure to include the latest version in the main theme package, so you can update yours version.


  • The theme includes a license for this plugin so you don’t have to buy it.
  • You don’t have to activate the plugin license, it’s already activated.
  • You can’t update the plugin directly from the it’s producer.
  • Don’t worry about the plugin update warnings.

We provide updates on a regular basis, after we test the plugin for theme compatibility we include it in the latest theme update, inside the …/plugins folder.

You can do it via FTP. Just login into your FTP server and go to wp-content/plugins/js_composer/ folder. Unpack files from file in …/plugins you’ve downloaded inside updated theme and replace files from unpacked folder into your FTP to wp-content/plugins/js_composer/ folder.

Important Warning: Deleting the WPBakery Page Builder plugin from your site will also delete all your settings that you have setup before. So if you wish to update the WPBakery Page Builder plugin just like your Slider Revolution plugin then you will have to first backup all your settings so you can re-import them later. Above is a better method for updating your WPBakery Page Builder plugin.
