Make Sure WPBakery Page Builder Plugin Is Installed & Active

Make sure you have activated the WPBakery Page Builder plugin. This plugin is NOT built-into a theme (for good reasons) so it must be installed and activated. After installing the theme you should have been prompted to install the recommended plugins. If you chose not to install the Visual Composer then now is the time to do so.

Define Main Settings

Go to Settings > WPBakery Page Builder to set up the plugin. The most essential part is to enable the composer for the post types you want to use it on. This is actually done via the “Role Manager” tab and the “Post Types” settings. You can actually enable the page builder to be accessible depending on the user role but most likely you’ll only want to edit the “Administrator” settings.

The backend editor includes easy to use options to add page elements or select page templates.

If you click on the + symbol the Visual Composer will open a window to add elements. Here you will find all of the Visual Composer and Total page building modules. To add a page element simply click on it.

Visual Composer Page Elements

Use the page element options to customize your page. Each element has different options for customizations like colors, fonts, margin, images, and more. Below is a map of the backend editor with helpful pointers for the editor options.

After adding elements make sure to save your page.

The Visual Composer Frontend Editor

The frontend Visual Composer includes all of the same page building options as the backend. The only difference is that you can see the actual page elements as you insert theme instead of place holders.
