Updated: January 10, 2017

Page Builder provide options to create unique layout for each page. Just select page and insert elements which you want show on this page. Settings made for page in Page Builder override options made in Default Layout where is layout specified globally for all pages on site.

In the header of Page Builder screen is available selection with all pages where you can select page which will have created specific layout with own local options.

Pages listed in selection are divided in two groups:

Special pages

Include pages like:

  • blog page (page set up as Blog in default WordPress Settings > Reading section)
  • 404 error page
  • search results page
  • categories, taxonomies, tags or authors pages
  • attachments pages
  • single blog posts pages
  • single pages of all custom posts types received with theme (Portfolio, Members, Events etc…)

Layout of special pages might be edited just once – this layout is used through all other pages of the same kind. For example layout created for special Portfolio item page is used on all single portfolio pages, or layout created for Single blog posts is used on all single pages of blog posts.

Normal pages

Include all standard pages properly created in WordPress Pages section. You can create different layout for each one standard page.

Create local options of page

Local options of page are created after click on the title of page in header of Page Builder screen, where is available selection of pages.

In the header of Page Builder screen you can see the title of edited page and three icons:

  • View – open currently editing page in new window/tab to see your changes
  • Edit – open standard WordPress Edit Page of currently edited page in new window/tab
  • Delete – delete local options of currently edited page

If you create specific layout for some page, these settings overwrite settings made in Default Layout screen. So in page with own layout created in Page Builder screen you will see just elements added for this page, not elements used in Default Layout which are displayed on all pages which have not created own layout with Page Builder.

Follow Elements documentation to learn more about using elements.
