WPBakery Page Builder (Visual Composer)

Weston comes with WPBakery Page Builder (Visual Composer). It is the #1 page builder plugin available. It gives you ultimate control over page layout and content creation. You can use Visual Composer on any Post, Page, or Project.

The first thing to do is goto WPBakery Page Builder->Role Manager, and make sure Posts, Pages, and Projects are all selected under Post Types.


Now when creating or editing a page, post, or project, you can switch to Visual Composer by clicking on the Backend Editor button if Visual Composer is not already active on the page you are editing.
