What is Visual Composer?
Whether you’re well versed in HTML and CSS or have zero experience, Visual Composer makes creating beautiful web pages simple and easy, for everyone.
Visual Composer is a powerful plugin created by WP Bakery that allows users to build web pages quickly and seamlessly by allowing them to simply Drag and Drop content elements onto their webpages.
There are over 40 content elements available to choose from, from tables to Social Media buttons. To see what all is available, go to WP Bakery’s website to learn more!
How can you get it?
At a low, one-time cost of $34, you can download the plugin directly from WP Bakery, ThemeForest and CodeCanyon. Since Visual Composer is a paid plugin, all you need to do is download and install and you’re ready to begin!
How does it work?
Once you’ve installed and activated your plugin, you can begin building your pages. Simply click on the blue Add Element button, and choose which elements you would like on your web page. By using Visual Composer, you will almost always cut your time spent creating web pages to a fraction.
But, I know HTML and CSS, is Visual Composer for me?
Yes! Even if you’re an HTML and CSS expert, this tool makes building web pages quick and simple. You can also add custom CSS and even raw HTML to single pages!.
If you’re really missing entering all of your HTML by hand, Visual Composer also has a Back End Editor that allows you to enter HTML on your web page. Sometimes, I will switch between this and the front-end editor, which is where you would drag and drop elements on the page.
Visual Composer is a great plugin, and in my opinion one of the best out there. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert. If you would like to cut your time building web pages and sites, this is a great tool to use.
