Today, thanks to WordPress, you no longer need to have specific knowledge to create attractive web pages. However, you are peut be already stumbled upon a website that offers a truly incredible design, and you've probably wondered: How did he do that?

Unfortunately, if you are an amateur or beginner, you can not do much, even with WordPressBecause to modify your theme, you need a certain degree of expertise in HTML, CSS, PHP and several other skills depending on the nature of your theme, but also your project or goal.

However, even if you are an experienced coder, you definitely need a tool that will save you time and quality on the end result.

Heureusement, le Plugin WordPress « Page Builder Pagers Formerly known as " Visual Composer » provides a solution to this problem. With the latter, even most novice bloggers can create pages with a very unique look for their website.

With this plugin, you can create:

  • Attractive landing pages (landing page)
  • Professional sales pages
  • "Showcase" sites for your company
  • Module pages for your training
  • short while

This is in my opinion the best formatting tools (or layout) on the internet. Especially for WordPress users.

In this tutorial therefore, I will show you how to give a unique look to your website (Or blog) with the Plugin Visual Composer.


How to install and configure WPBakery Page Builder plugin

Page Builder Pagers is a Plugin premium that you can buy on Codecanyon : The best platform for selling plugins on the internet.

OK. Once you've bought and downloaded this WordPress layout plugin, all you have to do is install and activate it.

Then we will begin by making some basic adjustments. To do this, go to the location "Settings >> Visual Composer » On your dashboard.

General settings

The first tab (general settings), Allows you to change:

  • The content on which visual compose will be available. You can check the items (post) and / or pages (page)
  • The different rules ofaccess different roles. With this option you can determine that changes what. The different roles available will be displayed. You will have to click on each one to check the elements to which it (the role) will have access. You have the possibility to forbid the use of " visual compose "to users of a specific role.
  • Enable or disable items responsive
  • Define subsets for Google fonts

Design Options

On the design options, you have the option to change the default visual appearance of the various elements of the visual compose ». Before using it, make sure you have checked the option « Use custom design options ».

These options will allow you to define the color that applies to all elements.

  • The tabs Custom CSS Gives you the opportunity to further customize each element, only developers can know what it is.
  • The tab " Product Licensing Allows you to activate your Plugin to receive automatic updates.
  • The tab " shortcodes assets Is essentially about developers.

Well, now we will create a custom web page with Visual Composer.

How to create a custom page with visual compose

To easily create custom web pages, you have the choice between the editor of " back-office That is, you are editing the site from your WordPress dashboard, where the front office ».


If you use Gutenberg, you will notice a "Page Editor" button on the top task bar.

The advantage with the publisher of "Front office" is that you can edit your pages live and see how different elements appear on your theme.

With the back office publisher

To access the editor of " back-office », I invite you to click on« Publisher BACK-OFFICE ». You can always go back to the visual editor of WordPress by clicking on « Fashion ". But I think it will not be necessary, so this plugin webpage formatting is complete.

Once on the Back Office editor, you can choose a global layout that will apply to the page.

The updates page vary depending on what you plan to do with the page. So you can choose « landing page " to create a home page, "List of services" for a page that shows services, and so on. With experience you will even manage to create bets en pages personalized with very professional design.

Whatever the choice of your setting page, the presentation of the elements is similar on all the latter. You can add a new element clicking on "+" at the very top of the goal box « visual Editor , Or add a template by clicking on the icon "Model".

On each line, you can (from left to right) :

  • Move the line
  • Manage columns in the row
  • Add a new column

Other options are available to the right of the box. These options allow you to (from left to right) Of:

  • reduce the line
  • edit a row
  • duplicate a row
  • delete a row

In the middle of each column, you can add an item before, edit a column, or delete it.

Recommended Resources

Here are some extensions visual composer that we highly recommend:

1 - How to manage columns

On the column management tab, you can choose the number of columns you want to add to the row. To understand the different models of columns, know that each fraction corresponds to the width that will occupy the column. As much as a template has fractions, so many times the page will have columns.

Of course, 11 different column templates are available, but you can create as many as you want by clicking on the link "Personalized" just below the list of columns.

For example, to display a section of the page with 2 columns at equal widths, you must choose (Or add) "1 / 2 + 1 / 2".

The columns will be displayed on your blog and their widths will be distributed proportionally to the dimensions of the theme. A column can contain as many items as possible, so you have no limit on that level.

The different elements can be moved to any columns.

By hovering over each element, you will be able to access its options, in particular the button that allows you to:

  • move the element
  • change the element
  • duplicate the element
  • Supprimer the element


2 - How to add items

You have the option to customize each column with the elements proposed by " Visual Compose ». To add an item, click on the button "+" on a specific column or on the button "+" From the main menu of the plugin.

When a column is empty (ne contains no content)she has a button "+" inside.
To add a video for example, click this button and choose the video element.

add a video

Easily create your website with Elementor

Elementor allows you to easily create any website design with a professional look. Stop paying expensive for what you can do yourself. [Free]

Clicking on it will open a new window. On this window, you must provide the title, the link to the video and an additional class (which is not mandatory). When you have finished filling in the information on your video, do not forget to save your changes.

Your video will be available on the back office publisher. Save your changes once again. You can now view it by simply clicking " preview ".

The process of adding an element is the same for all others, with a few exceptions. The information to be completed may vary according to the elements.

By selecting the text element for example, you will find a classic visual editor (the one available when writing articles or pages), but also an option that lets you add an animation while the item is displayed. The latter can be faded from one position to another, depending on your settings.

The most interesting with this Plugin, is that you will be able to create sidebars if your theme does not offer it for example. To do this, click the add button (" + »), and choose the element WP Comments Recent "," Facebook like " and finally " Wp Categories ».

Now create this custom column template " 1 / 3 + 2 / 3 Or something else and add the element sidebar on the left column or on the right. It does not matter because it all depends on the width you want to give to your sidebar created under this layout extension in Visual Composer.

You will notice a new empty column on the right, add a new element of your choice (I recommend you to add a simple text). Now save the page and go to the preview to see the result of this exercise.

3 - How to save and reuse a page template

It is possible to save the template of your page and use it plûtard. I love this option because it avoids spending hours trying to copy the template of a page. Here, everything is done with one click. Yes you heard right, IN 1 ONLY CLICK ... or in two 🙂

To save a template, click the templates icon. On the window that will be displayed, enter the name of your model in the field " Save the current layout as a template », Then click on« Save template ».

Important: You must do this on the page you want to save as a template and not on a blank page.

It is the same way that you will find the different models that you have saved, lower on the same window in the section "Load a model".

All you have to do in this case is to create a new page, then, go to templates and choose the one you want to give to your page.

With the publisher of the front office

The publisher of the front office has the advantage de allow you to edit your page in real time. In other words, it lets you see what each change to your site will look like with Visual Composer. The advantage with this approach is that you do not need to work blindly as is the case with the page editor of the back office.

You can switch from one option to another at any time (Back office or front office).

The editor of the front office is not so different from the back office editor, in that we find a bar user identical, but also all the options of the back office editor are the same as on the front-office editor.

However, five new buttons have been added, these include:

  • Activation or deactivation of guides
  • The emulator, which allows you to see what your blog will look like on different devices
  • The back button to the back office
  • The record button changes
  • The exit button visual compose

Each element of a page can be modified, you will be able to see the options available by hovering over each element. The button shaped "PLAY", you will display more options for an item.

  8. My question is if I buy a license for the Visual Composer plugin, is that I can use on my sites with this license? Thank you for your reply. And also thank you for the beautiful VC tutorial.

    1. Yes you can, but it will be impossible to have free updates visual composing for each of your sites. You will need a license per site.

  9. Hello, a practical question ... I bought a standard license some time ago, I'm doing a wordpress site to an association, how to transfer the license to him when I finish?
    Thanks for your help

    1. Hello,
      For this practical question, I would say it depends. In fact, if you asked the author of the plugin, it will bring you an answer. But in the words of Envato, the single or simple license (single), allows you to create a final product that you can give the client. I guess in this case it also carries license. But you will find some authors who object (me being on CodeCanyon author, I do not find a particular disadvantage). But I think that for the avoidance of doubt, you should contact the authors or the team of Envato.

  10. Hello, I use the gate of visual dial to highlight my articles on the home page. I would like to change the image size that highlights the article.

    Thank you for your help.

      1. Hi,
        Great work. !
        I just figured out what these options are for.
        On the other hand I was told that it was heresy to use the Rangers and it was better to use tables, tablepress less greedy style code.
        Personally I find simpler and more aesthetic visual dial.

  21. Very good tuto!

    I use these days to compose visual, I'm a web designer but however for a first ca use requires a little experiment with different component to see the air it gives ...

    another tutorial will be really a plus to comment on each item with one hand to demo the explanation ...

  22. Thank you for this excellent tutorial ...

    A simple question, when buying this plug-in, can you use it for all the sites that we produce?

    Thank you for your reply.

      1. Hello,

        Your answer is accurate, but on the site envato, where can buy the plugin, the two licenses say that have to buy a product license? the Google translation says, "Use, by you or a customer, in a single end product whose end users are not billed"

        What I understand is that if I make several different site with wordpress, I have to buy a license for site I products, can you enlighten me? Bravo for your tutorial.

        1. Hello, I'll try to give you an opinion. As author on Envato, I often have to answer this question. There simply license (single) entitles you to create a final single product (website which was made using the Envato Product) product can be sold only once to a single customer. There extended license allows you to create multiple derivatives of a product (website using several revolution slider for example) and can be sold to more than one client.

  23. Hello everyone!

And there are only two parameters ..
    In short, I go to create a page and there bah I have access to only the publisher backend and I do not have the icon of the front side .. Since October I made my site with the backend but there I wanted to find the front boon once and for all! Can you help me Thierry? I implore you ..



    1. Hello Tommy,

      On the road, I could not answer your concern. Could you send me screenshots of your dashboard?

    2. It is rather curious stuff. I think you really need help.

      In principle the option backend and front end are independent of compatibility with vc.
