and WPBakery Page Builder options

  • On new pages — add title and url first.
  • When you select a text block element, if you do not see all your style options, click on the toolbar toggle.
  • When creating a new page — instead of putting all content in one text box — try to break content into several different text boxes/elements so you have more flexibility with edit and/or inserting new content or a new element using the drag and drop function of WPBakery.

Once a new page is completed and published, DO NOT put back to “Draft” status unless you are removing the page from being “live/visible” on your live site.  A draft page will never show up on a live website.

Single Line Space

When in the text block element, for a “single” line space use “Shift+Enter”
