I believe there is a bug with the theme-based element for WP Bakery site builder plugin, “News Block – Horizontal”.
In the attached image you can see that the preview code includes the shortcodes or tags utilized by the WP Bakery plugin. In this case [vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] appear. This does not happen in any of the other blog type pages or elements that I have tested so far, so I believe it is a bug unique to this element.
Currently, this is a very low issue as the workaround is to simply go in and remove the appropriate WP Bakery shortcodes/tags and rely on the backend editor for the first set of text. This can cause issues when editing a post/page however as WP Bakery will want to auto-insert its shortcodes which is expected, but will require us to redo this edit for every edit we make with the WP Bakery plugin. Also, this manual editing can be easily done incorrectly and can break the entire page (due to missing shortcodes that structure the entire post/page), which non-code-savvy users will not be able to fix without deleting everything.
— This may also be solvable with a plugin that cleverly injects more/readmore/excerpt tags but I have not found this theme to play well with plugins of this type and as such cannot offer additional input regarding compatibility.
Regardless, for a theme-based element on the included plugin, I think this should be fixable. Thanks for the great work! I hope to see a solution, if feasible, soon!
