    Dear Sir or Madam,

    Thank you for following along as I work to create this new site using your Polytechnic theme.  

    I am populating the theme with our courses.  I would like to use your "Week 1" "Week 2" Tabbed layout (like in 1.png)

    When I go to add a new course, there is no Visual Composer like there is when I create a normal "Page" for the site.  To create the tabbed layout and its contents, am I correct in thinking that I need to create it in shortcode (see screenshot 2.png). I can do this, but wanted to confirm beforehand that it is the correct method; that the Visual Composer is NOT used when creating or editing courses.

    Thank you !

    Hi Nick,

    You may need to enable Visual Composer for courses. Navigate to WPBakery Page Builder > Role Manager > under Post Types make sure "polytechnic_courses" is checked > and scroll to the bottom and hit save.

    Then reload your course and you should have the option to view classic mode or via Visual Composer. 

    Let me know if that helps,
