Remove Activation Notice Ultimate Addons for Visual Composer

If you are a theme developer and use Visual Composer you really should look into Ultimate Addons for Visual Composer. It’s a really great expansion of the page builder tool.

If you are bundling the Ultimate Addons for Visual Composer with your theme you’re going to want to disable the activation notice for your end users.

“Please activate your copy of the Ultimate Addons for Visual Composer to get update notifications, access to support features & other resources!”

How to do this really should have been documented somewhere by the plugin author, but I digress.

I spent the better part of my morning working this out so here it is:

Just add the below code to your themes functions.php file:

define('BSF_PRODUCTS_NOTICES', false);

That’s it!!

If you haven’t already, you’ll probably want to add this bit of code to your themes functions.php in order to disable the activation notice for Visual Composer itself:

vc_set_as_theme( $disable_updater = true );

I hope this helps!!

    put vc_set_as_theme( $disable_updater = true ); in my THEME’s function PHP and I still get the
    “Please activate your copy of the Ultimate Addons for Visual Composer to get update notifications, access to support features & other resources!”

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks !

      For Ultimate Addons you need to add:

      define(‘BSF_PRODUCTS_NOTICES’, false);

      Let me know if you still have problems.
      Thanks.

    This indeed does remove the nag! Cheers. I’m not 100% certain, but it might leave the circled plugin notification, but it could be from another plugin. At any rate, I wanted to thank you.

      Hi Chris,

      If you give me some more details I may be able to help. Are you having problems with the Visual Composer notice or the Ultimate Addons notice?
      Let me know.

      Thanks.
