Public Ticket #3194103
"Projects" configuration is broken


  • Eric started the conversation

    The "Projects" object configuration seems to be broken, or is very confusing to use. Creating new "projects" pulls up a blank that is ONLY editable as paragraph text, there is no option to use Gutenburg or even WP bakery layouts, which means adding slideshows, animations, etc is near-impossible.

    Although there are options to add custom fields, they do not initialize on page render and I have to assume they're broken as well.

    The existing "projects" that are included with the template would be fine to use if they can be repurposed, but they're a mess of shortcode, woo-commerce placeholder data, and text strings.

    As things are now, VIM is basically unusable as a project or porfolio template. I've spent more time trying to figure out how to manage the configuration than if I had made this from scratch using a vanilla WP installation.

    Is there ANY documentation on how to use the "Projects" objects?

    Hi, just enable WP bakery support for these sections. See the screenshot below.

    Thanks! Makes sense it should be something like that, I'll take a look.  Probs a good idea to put that in the documentation ;)
