I am trying to edit my wordpress theme that is running

I am trying to edit my wordpress theme that is running salient , Whenever I try to edit pages the Visual Composer is not loading. I have emailed Themenectar support they were no help at all. I can upgrade my site to the latest version of the theme and the Visual Composer works fine but I lose all of my custom code.

My developer who added in custom code hard coded it straight into the theme its self not using the child theme supplied.

I have no idea what to do can some one please help me.

    Hi Aaron, hope you had a wonderful day.

    Oops, you are doomed! Can you follow the steps below? It might help.

    # By any chance can you contact your developer and ask him exactly which files did he make changes on and what are those changes?
    # If you get the list, you can create a staging site (a clone site of your current site) and setup the latest version of your theme there.
    # Create a child theme on that staging site with modifications your developer made on your theme on main site.
    # After you are done finishing your child theme functioning exactly same as your current theme, you can move that updated theme and your child theme to your live server.

    I think this will be the best possible workaround if you want to update your theme. Please let us know if you have any suggestion.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
