Editing content - text, images, most things - in most cases will simply involve launching the page builder, clicking on an item and editing it. The full list steps may look like this:
- log into your website
- navigate to the page you want to edit
- launch the page builder
- click on an item
- edit it
- click Save
- click Done
- click Publish
In more detail:
To launch the page builder
- On the front end (not the dashboard), go to the page you want to add-to or edit eg. mywebsite.com/about
- Click the Page Builder item in the WordPress admin bar at the top.
The Beaver Builder Page Builder will load so you can begin editing content on the front end of your website.
Other ways of launching the page builder
- Go to the WordPress dashboard
- Go to Pages or Posts in the sidebar
- Hover over the page name, and click Page Builder
If you are on the Edit screen to change the title, date, featured image etc of a Page or Post, there will be a Page Builder button where the content area normally is, or a Page Builder tab next to a Text Editor tab at the top of the post. You can launch the page buider from there.
Edit that thing..
- Hover over the item to edit. The outlines of the builder rows and modules will show.
- To move an item, click and hold the move icon and drag the item.
- To edit an item, click the spanner icon for the module, or somewhere in the blue area.
Note: Modules always sit inside Rows, which is the
dark grey outline around the blue one in the screenshot. It's the module you'll be wanting to click on, unless of course you want to change the Row.
- Make your edits Expand the editor - icon, top-right - for more elbow-room.
To finalise your edits:
- Click Save at the bottom of the module
- Click Done near the top-right of the page
- Click Publish Changes in the dialogue box
And we are done
What can't I edit?
Technically-speaking there's nothing that can't be edited.
Some things you may fine to be off-limits depending on whether you know how to code in HTML and CSS.
With Beaver Builder it is very possible to build a website without knowing how to code, but there are many instances where CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) is needed to override things not covered by the Page Builder or the WordPress / Theme Customizer.
This tutorial - as the title suggests - covers content edits.
Content, which you can edit by following this tutorial.
Editing the site header and footer will be covered in another tutorial.
The other exception is archive pages, which is more advanced, but we'll get to it.
That's all for now.
