WP Bakery Update Breaks Site Layout and Content


WordPress vers 4.9.1
Jupiter vers 5.9.7
WP Bakery vers 5.2

I have a WP Bakery (formally Visual Composer) plugin update. I try to update it through the Jupiter required updates panel and I get the following result:


Thank God I backed it up - something we all learn after making the same mistake a few times . . .
This is what the above link SHOULD look like:


Updating in the regular WordPress updates page just fails.

Thank you for any help - or pointing to an existing topic (which I looked for).




Seems you installed original version of Visual Composer.
Jupiter is compatible only with Artbees Modified version of WPBakery Page Builder.
To update it, go to Jupiter > Control Panel > Required Plugins.
Also make sure you’re using the latest theme version 6.0.2.

Best regards,

I had the same thing happen with the artbees modified version of the plugin. Everytime I try to update from 5.9 to 6.0.2 it says it’s successful and then doesn’t update. My website looks the same with a video of a skyline in the background. This is a serious problem. Please figure out a fix ASAP.



Please update the theme via FTP https://themes.artbees.net/docs/updating-theme-child-theme/ .
Then uninstall VC plugin in the Plugins section in your dashboard and install it via Jupiter > Control Panel > Required Plugins (but at first update the theme via FTP).
