Editing a addon/extension element in the WPBakery Page Builder.
Does it work with the theme that I am using?
Our tests indicate that the addons work well with most themes that are well coded. You may need some minor custom CSS with themes that hijack the styling for heading tags by using !important keyword.
Some themes override default templates provided by WPBakery Page Builder. The themes that override WPBakery Page Builder Row template may require you to manually set the attributes required for the dark version (see below).
The demo site is best recreated with a theme that supports a full width page template without sidebars. The elements can still be used in the pages of default template.
How to enable the dark version for any element?
In WPBakery Page Builder, add a row wrapper for the element, edit row and check the option ‘Dark Background?’ at the end of General tab of the row or an inner row element.
For themes that override the WPBakery Page Builder row template with one of their own, you may need to add a custom class ‘lvca-dark-bg’ manually to the WPBakery Page Builder row wrapper element to activate the dark version of an element.
