2.1 Creating pages with WP Bakery Page Builder


In order to keep WP Bakery Page Composer the default page builder of your website, we strongly recommend disabling Gutenberg.

  • Open your WordPress Admin Dashboard
  • Navigate to Visual Composer – Settings;
  • Locate the Gutenberg settings and select disable (Off);

  • Save changes.

When creating a new page, click on Pages > All pages, and then Add new (on the arrow icon) > Classic editor otherwise Gutenberg editor will replace WPBakery Page builder.

When editing new click Classic editor link near page name in list, otherwise Gutenberg editor will replace WPBakery Page builder.

Go to Page->Add new

Choose Page Visual Composer as page template in the right column

Enter a title

Save or publish

Click Backend Editor

Start adding elements: click the + button and add first a Row, then your desired elements.

Please never put the custom elements from the LifeCoach slideshows and carousels in multi-column rows, always put them in a full-width row.


Custom functions for layout:

In the Row settings you can set a row as negative (texts will use the background colors, useful for sections with background photos) and you can add a container, as this template is 100% width.

In Theme Shortcodes you have a huge number of custom elements added by this theme. Their equivalent shortcode and parameters are discussed in the Theme Shortcodes section of the manual.
