Your WordPress theme usually has a default header, footer and sidebar layout defined. Nevertheless, there are cases when you need a blank page to create a layout. For example, you can to create a simple landing page for your marketing campaign. Or you want to create your custom headers, footers, and sidebars.
Visual Composer Website Builder offers you to convert any page, post, or custom post type into a blank layout and adjust options via Visual Composer On-Page Settings.
To select/change a page layout you will need to complete these simple steps:
- Create a new page or ‘Edit’ existing page;
- Open Visual Composer Settings from the Navigation bar;
- Select the layout of your choice;
- Optional: specify header, footer, or sidebar templates;
- Optional: control the width of the layout by choosing boxed (default) or stretched – full width.
In addition to selecting Header, Footer, and Sidebar, it is also possible to disable any of these blocks for the Visual Composer page layouts. Simply select ‘None’ from the drop-down menu.
Note: The changes will instantly take place in your Frontend editor, to apply changes, make sure to click Save/Publish.
If you use a theme defined layout there is a probability that you have a strict place defined for the page or post title. Yet, not every page requires a title at the top of the content (most popular place to put it), maybe you want to incorporate heading somewhere within the content.
Visual Composer page layout settings allow you to disable Page title for the themes that are coded according to WordPress Codex (most themes do follow this practice).
To disable page title:
- In Visual Composer editor open Settings;
- Disable page title by switching toggle control OFF.
Also, if you wish to change the Page title, you can do it in the same place by simply writing your own page title in the input field above.
Note: In Visual Composer predefined page layouts, we do not put a strict place for the page title. We give you the freedom to insert page title anywhere on the page as a simple heading (and even specify custom fonts.)
