Changelog – Composium (Visual Composer Extensions)

vc-changelog

Time never stops and website technologies change and improve with it. And so does “Composium – Visual Composer Extensions”. We constantly add new features and/or improve upon the existing elements and features the plugin already provides. And sometimes, some bug-fixing is required to, becasue as much as we attempt to be, nobody is perfect and errors happen. The changelog below will show you what happened to the plugin with each of its releases.

Most updates include small but significant changes to some major files used on the WordPress backend and frontend. Therefore, after the update, if you are using any caching plugins, please empty all page and minify caches, as well as the general browser cache in order to ensure that you use the most current files. If an update also includes new elements, don’t forget to activate the element(s) in the add-on settings if you want to use them.
