Step 5

Using a page builder plugin is a great way to manage your home page (and other pages). You can create full-width content areas, as well as unique custom columns layouts.

If you are using the Gutenberg editor, we recommend using our Kadence Gutenberg Blocks plugin. It adds custom blocks to extend Gutenberg’s editing capabilities to better build custom layouts and make Gutenberg able to do more closely what popular page builders can do.

  • If using a page builder plugin, make sure you have the plugin installed (premium users can go to Appearance > Theme Recommend Plugins to install).
  • Then in your Theme Options > Home Layout make sure to have the “page content” dragged into the “enabled” column.
  • Now navigate to the page you first created in step 1 and edit.
  • On the page, you should see an option to switch to whichever editor or page builder you are choosing to use. Here is an example of page builder by siteorigins editor:
