Page Builder

When to use the page builder

If you are adding a new page that will contain just text, it’s simplest to use the Classic Page Editor.

But if you want a more complex layout for your page, for example with columns, or you want to add elements like image galleries, buttons, accordian toggles, etc., then it’s best to use the page builder.

Is this your first time adding a new page?
Read the Adding and Deleting Pages tutorial first.

Switching to the page builder

If you are in the Classic Editor and want to switch to the Page Builder, click the blue Backend Editor button below the page title.
