Hello i have bought WP Bakery but i cant activate the license. There is no licence tab where i can fill in the licence code!

Please help to solve the problem.
Thank you.

Hello @Montauk_P,

Thanks for writing in!

Please install a Child theme first. You can get it here:

Once you have the child theme installed, go to Appearance > Themes > Theme File Editor and then click the functions.php file on the right side. You will then have to add this line remove_action( 'vc_before_init', 'x_visual_composer_set_as_theme', 99 ); so that the activation of WPBakery plugin will becomes active and visible again.

Hello There,

The given username does not exist. Please double-check it.

  • See the secure note below.

And please provide us with your FTP as well so we can check if there is a fatal error happening.

Best Regards.

Oh i will check

You will find ftp filemanager plugin online when you login to wordpress

Hey @Montauk_P,

We don’t have enough permission to check your setup. Please set the user level access to administrator. It would also be best if you provide FTP access just in case there will be server errors.


Ok i have changed your permission to administrator, sorry.
You can use the internal filemanager for the ftp.

Hey @Montauk_P,

The correct code which I tested in my site as well as your site is this:

add_action('after_setup_theme', 'remove_tco_vc');

function remove_tco_vc() {
	remove_action( 'vc_before_init', 'x_visual_composer_set_as_theme' );

Please try activating WP Bakery.


ok thank you!

You are most welcome.
We’re glad @Christian was able to give you the correct code.
