    In my experience I try and avoid themes that insist on using Visual Composer have found it very buggy in the past and the support was next to useless. This is annoying as usually it’s essential for many themes to run. I think the WordPress page editor is easy enough to use with normal shortcodes and doesn’t need additional plugins like this.

    The other issue is that when an update is released for Visual Composer it can’t be updated without a license meaning the theme needs to be updated and often theme updates don’t tie in with plugin updates, in fact I have been told by one developer that we shouldn’t update VC as the latest version won’t with with their theme,

    I’m not sure why James says that Be Theme relies on Visual Composer, because it doesn’t. It has it’s own builder – Muffin Builder and tons of shortcodes. I bought the theme and I found the combination of Muffin Builder and pre-made layouts to be very good. Therefore, saying that Be Theme relies on Visual Composer is inaccurate and misleading.
