    When looking up ‘Visual Composer’, on WordPress.org, it seems to say this product is now part of ‘WPBakery Page Builder’ – correct or…?

      What you found on .org is related to other plugin called WPBakery Page Builder. At the moment Visual Composer Website Builder available only at visualcomposer.io website.

    Not entirely correct…About WPBakery Page Builder (Formerly Visual Composer)
    WPBakery Page Builder, formerly known as Visual Composer, is one of the original WordPress page builders. Ever since WPBakery Page Builder was released, it’s been the most popular page builder plugin for WordPress in the CodeCanyon marketplace and now has 300k+ direct sales.

    In October 2017, the original Visual Composer was rebranded to WPBakery Page Builder.The Visual Composer trademark has since been used for a completely different project: a full-fledged website builder – Visual Composer Website Builder.

    Sadly, my research shows that the old Visual Composer is NOT the same as the new Visual Composer and the code produced by the two are NOT compatible. Further bad news is the vendor says they “plan” to write a migration tool for sites coded with the old (now defunct) code. But there is no time schedule for the migration tool. Essentially, anyone who coded with the old Visual Composer is now in a dead-end. If you site experiences trouble, you will be dead in the water with no support, even if paid.
