Requirements for WP Bakery Page Builder
You’ll need the following items to follow along with this WPBakery Page Builder tutorial:
- WordPress 5.0 or higher is essential.
- a subscription to Envato
In addition, I recommend reading the following article to better understand how to use Visual Composer and why you should use WPBakery Page Builder instead of any of the other page-builder plugins available today:
WPBakery Page Builder Installation
WPBakery Page Builder is a WordPress premium plugin. It’s available on Code Canyon, so sign up with your Envato account and buy a license. It’s still commonly is in reference as Visual Composer. Once you’ve paid for it, you’ll be able to download a ZIP file containing various plugin data.
Look for a file called js composer.zip after extracting the ZIP file. This is a WordPress plugin archive file that you must add to your server. So, go to Plugins > Add New in your WordPress admin line. Then pick js composer.zip from the Upload Plugin drop-down menu. To begin the update, click the Install Now button. When the installation is over, click the Enable Plugin button. You’ll be guided to the WPBakery Page Builder welcoming screen as soon as you do so.
Make Sure WPBakery Page Builder Plugin Is Installed & Active
Make sure the WPBakery Page Builder plugin is turned on. Since this plugin is not included with the theme (for good reason), it must be installed and allowed as described in the “Installing Recommended Plugins” guide. You should have been asked to install the recommended plugins after downloading the theme. Now is the time to install the Visual Composer if you haven’t already.
Configuring the WP Bakery Page Builder Plugin
It’s easy to learn how to use WPBakery Page Builder. The plugin is highly customizable, with hundreds of configuration choices to tailor it to your specific needs. To see them, press the Settings button on the welcome pad.
WP Bakery Page Builder with general settings
The plugin comes with a well-thought-out default setup that will suffice for the majority of use cases. For example, you can see that it supports responsive design right out of the box in the General Settings tab. The plugin also attempts to add different optimizations so that the pages you generate with it load quickly. For example, it defaults to using only the Latin script subset of Google fonts. All you have to do is change the Google fonts subsets option to accept other scripts.
You’ll note that this plugin is only available for your WordPress site’s pages in the Role Manager tab. Select Custom in the Post styles list and allow the post feature if you want it to be eligible for your posts as well.
Configuring post types:
Scroll down and press the Save Changes button once you’ve made the changes.
Finally, go to the Template Options tab and search the Use custom design area if you want to configure the look and feel of WPBakery Page Builder’s content elements. You’ll be able to adjust the plugin’s pre-set colors, margins, and widths after you’ve done so.
Define Main Settings for WP Bakery Page Builder
To configure the plugin, go to Settings > WPBakery Page Builder. The most crucial step is to turn on the composer for the post forms you choose to use it for. This is achieved through the “Role Manager” tab and the “Post Types” options. You can make the page builder accessible based on the user function, but you’ll really just want to change the “Administrator” settings.
Using the WP Bakery Page Builder Plugin
The Visual Composer is really simple and doesn’t need much explanation; for a short guide, see the screenshots below (you can also check out this more detailed Visual Composer guide). To begin, choose if you want to use the Backend or Frontend editor and press the appropriate button.
The Visual Composer Backend Editor
In this Visual Composer tutorial, this is a crucial step. There are two powerful editors included with WPBakery Page Builder: a back-end editor and a front-end editor. They can only be accessed from inside a website or a tweet. As a result, I recommend that you make a new page by heading to Pages > Add New for the time being. You can select which editor you want to use in the page construction GUI. To open the backend editor, first press the Backend Editor button.
You can conveniently connect a number of widely used elements to the website using this editor. Simple elements including text blocks, pictures, and separators are available in WPBakery Page Builder. Advanced features include Facebook “Like” icons, Google Maps, charts, and animated carousels. The components are grouped into four groups for easy access: text, social, structure, and WordPress widgets.
The elements that are available are listed below:
To add an element, simply click the Add Element button and choose the desired element. Alternatively, you should use the Add Text Block button to add text to the website directly.
If you don’t like the way an aspect looks by default, you can always change its styles by going to the Design Options page. Once you’ve added a few items, you’ll find that each one has a toolbar with a few buttons associated with it. These buttons show intuitive icons and enable you to perform essential operations like dragging and dropping an entity to alter its position, duplicating, removing, or editing its contents.
Keep in mind to save your page once you’ve finished adding components.
The Visual Composer Frontend Editor
The frontend Visual Composer has the same page building choices as the backend Visual Composer. The main distinction is that instead of position holders, you will see the individual page elements when you insert theme.
Using the WYSIWYG Front-End Editor
The back-end editor is perfect for pages with a number of elements that are lengthy and complicated. You get to deal on the final presentation of your website right from the start if you use the WYSIWYG front-end editor instead. You can swap between editors at any time, so scroll up and click the Frontend Editor button to launch the latest one.
Only when you mouse over a feature in this editor can you see the toolbars associated with it. Toolbars and the features they provide are somewhat close to those provided by the back-end editor in frontend editors demo options. You will now see how the website appears on different screen sizes using the front-end editor. You can also continue editing the page in whatever screen size you choose.
Using models is another critical part of learning how to use WPBakery Page Builder. Any page or post you make with WPBakery Page Builder can be turned into a prototype. You will reduce the amount of tedious work you do when making pages for your WordPress site by using this feature.
Open the Templates dialogue, assign the template a tag, and click the Save Template button to save the new layout of your page as a template.
Save the template in the Save Template dialogue box
Working with your own models isn’t the only choice. This plugin has a huge template library that is maintained on a daily basis. Switch to the Template Library tab and hit the Access Library button to access the library. In the template library, you’ll find that the library has a large number of high-quality layout models. You will do any of them for free. However, before you can use them, you must first unlock your WPBakery Page Builder certificate.
