Although there is a lot to like about Visual Composer, there is one major limitation. You can’t add many third-party widgets as elements in your page designs.
There are few workarounds, like using a WordPress HTML element, but that way you have minimal control over the widgets.
To clarify, when building a page with Visual Composer you can only add/use Visual Composer elements. You can, of course, use other plugins/widgets as normal on regular pages not built with Visual Composer.
But luckily, Visual Composer is extendable.
When a plugin becomes popular, third-party developers will start building their own plugins to extend the core plugin’s functionality. That happened with Visual Composer builder plugin.
Wide variety of add-ons have been developed for it thanks to big community of users. These add-ons are installed in the same way a plugin is.
These add-ons allow you to extend the list of elements you can use with Visual Composer.
You can extend Visual Composer in two ways. Using dedicated Visual Composer add-ons, and using Visual Composer compatible plugins (Easy Social Share Buttons for WordPress).
Most of the add-ons are built by third-party developers, although the Visual Composer developers have built a few of their own.
Visual Composer was built to be extended. The developers openly encourage add-ons. To this date list consists of 100 items, and they cost anywhere from $3 to $24.
Extending the functionality of Visual Composer is incredibly easy. You simply install the add-on in the same way as a normal plugin.
When you next go to use Visual Composer, you’ll now be able to see the extra elements available to you, courtesy of the add-on.
While installing add-ons is easy, choosing the right ones is a little more complicated.
