In the past few weeks, we’ve been diving into add-ons for popular WordPress page builders. These are essentially “plugins for plugins” that add additional functionality to your favorite page builder. In those weeks, we’ve already looked at Elementor add-ons, Beaver Builder add-ons, and some Divi extensions. Now, we’re going to round things out with a look at some WPBakery Page Builder add-ons or, as they were known not too long ago, some Visual Composer add-ons (WPBakery Page Builder is the new name for what was formerly the Visual Composer plugin).
Of the many page builders out there, WPBakery Page Builder definitely boasts the largest number of extensions. In fact, there are currently over 250+ WPBakery Page Builder add-ons.
So, as you may have gleaned from the post title, this is not a complete list of every single WPBakery add-on. Instead, this is a curated list of what I think are the most helpful free and premium WP Bakery add-ons. Sound good? Let’s dive in!
Note – many of these plugins still call themselves Visual Composer add-ons. Despite the naming confusion, they should still all work with WPBakery Page Builder because it’s the same underlying code, despite the name change.
5 Free WPBakery Page Builder Add-ons
All these plugins give you additional functionality without requiring you to pay a thing.
1. Addons for Visual Composer
Addons for Visual Composer is a popular free plugin from Livemesh Themes, a company that also makes add-ons for a number of other page builders.
The free extension comes with over 15 new elements that you can use in your WPBakery Page Builder designs, including elements like:
- Testimonials slider
- Team profiles
- Post carousel
- Pricing Tables
- Animation pie charts
- Plenty more
Additionally, most of the elements come with both a light and a dark version so that you can easily integrate them into different design aesthetics.
2. Mega Addons For Visual Composer
Mega Addons For Visual Composer is another popular free option listed at WordPress.org.
This one gives you 28 new modules that you can use in your designs including neat ones like:
- Price table
- Flip box

And lots, lots more!
3. Image Hover Effects Ultimate
As you can probably guess from the name, Image Hover Effects Ultimate adds a bunch of new CSS hover effects and animation options for images in WPBakery Page Builder.
In total, the plugin gives you access to 150+ hover effects. And all the effects are fully responsive and compatible with touch devices.
Check out the demo site if you want to see them in action – static pictures don’t do them justice.
If you need to display a ton of images (like in a portfolio), this one is a neat option.
4. Visual Composer Ads
This free plugin syncs up with the Advanced Ads plugin to let you easily display ads inside your WPBakery Page Builder layouts.
Advanced Ads is one of the most popular WordPress advertising plugins, and this extension comes straight from the actual developer.
Check it out if you’re using both WPBakery Page Builder and Advanced Ads.
5. Ultimate Carousel For Visual Composer
Ultimate Carousel For Visual Composer is another creatively named add-on – it lets you turn any type of content into a carousel. You can use it to showcase a carousel of:
- Anything else!
And it’s even touch-enabled so that people on touch screens can easily move between slides.

4. Visual Composer Extensions Addon
Visual Composer Extensions Addon brings a ton of new features to the WPBakery Page Builder.
First off, you get 140+ new elements, including a bunch that work with WooCommerce.
But what I think is really cool is its Template + Widget Builder.
With this, you can create a single template that you can use anywhere on your site. Once you update the template once, the changes are pushed out to all instances of the template on your site (it’s pretty much Elementor’s Global Widget, if you’re familiar with Elementor).
Visual Composer Extensions Addon costs $20 at CodeCanyon.
