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.

    Hey Hayes, This indeed worked. However I am having trouble with a theme activation Notice. How can I deal with that. Newspaper 8.1

    • Shawn Hayes

      You would have to contact your theme developer about that.

      Thank you.
      Best regards,

    how to remove: (” Please register this copy of theme to get access to premium plugins, pre-built websites, 1-click updates and more… “)

    • Shawn Hayes

      You would have to contact your theme developer about that.

      Thank you.
      Best regards,

    Top man Shawn. Big thank you. I’ve added this to our workflow for all websites. They really should have a tick box for this in the settings. I can’t image the amount of man hours that have been wasted by clients calling agencies about this!

    • Shawn Hayes

      No problem. Glad this helped.

    How about buying Visual Composer and entering license? Looks like you are using it, why not pay developers that work constantly to improve it?

    • Shawn Hayes

      This code is to help theme developers that have purchased Visual Composer’s (WPBakery Page Builder) Extended license and are packaging the code with their theme. We don’t want our users getting this notice after they launch our theme.

      Thank you for your comment.
