      the site is
      I have granted support access for you
      If you activate the smush plug-in and then edit an "area item" you will notice you are unable to use the visual composer backend editor.
      If you deactivate the smush plug-in you will notice you are able to use it again.
      This was fine before yesterdays update.
      This happens with various sites I run on different types of hosting.

    Hello JazzyDan,

    I was able to replicate this issue on my system also. Seems that only Area item are affected - I checked Portfolio and Testimonial (as those are also custom post types added by the Theme) but Visual Builder loads there fine. There are JS errors in browser console after enabling Smush, so it looks like scripts used by Smush are conflicting with scripts used by theme.
    I'm reporting this to our developers so they can investigate this and provide solution.

    kind regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
