Why don’t you use an extra class to achieve this?
What theme is this? Also where did you bought it?
About : I also struggled with my latest theme to have it approved. I had no ideas, but then they appeared… In the end, it always makes us push a little bit the overall quality
About : everything seems to be normal here. If the drop that you say is really big and continuous please confirm that everything is ok with your server and previews;
About : nothing new there. We all know that it is not as fast as we (Envato included) would like;
In general: always look at the bright side of life
fuelthemes saidFrom the screenshots it seems that it has something called Fusion Builder and they must have added it because of buyers asking. I also think that the same happened to Salient.
Like I always say, Avada disagrees It sold 70k+ without a page builder. Here we are trying to relate page builders to sales
I understand what you are saying, but if the theme is well built, you don’t need to use VC or any shortcodes. Basically you will still be able to build your own content across pages and posts without any of these elements.
The “problem” is that it is harder to build special pages where you want to use columns, backgrounds with parallax effects, sliders, tabs, toggles, etc… You will have to build all of these with “your own hands”, because there are no shortcodes available.
Also, as an example, if you want to show the latest portfolio posts on your homepage, how will you do it without a shortcode or a plugin?
I think VC and other page builders are great as long as the theme works well without them too. If you decide to switch themes later, you need to be ready to make adjustments to your content, but I never saw a theme switch without going through this type of process.
This is a general forum… You should ask each developer about that possibility on the comments section.
