Visual Composer Javascript Error

The Conflict

If you are using the Visual Composer plugin with certain elements like the Progress Bar or Pie Charts, you’ll get a javascript error because “the sticky method does not exist in jQuery Waypoints”. This is because Visual Composer loads the Waypoints library via the wp_footer hook, which overrides UberMenu Sticky’s Waypoints; and since Visual Composer’s version of Waypoints doesn’t contain the sticky function, an error occurs.


The simplest way to resolve this is to re-enqueue the Sticky script so that it is loaded after Visual Composer’s.

Add this PHP to your theme’s functions.php to resolve the issue:

add_action( 'wp_footer' , 'um_override_waypoints' );
function um_override_waypoints(){
    wp_dequeue_script( 'sticky-js' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'sticky-js' );
