Working with Drag&Drop builder

Inserting elements and actually designing a page is fun. But before devoting time to sorting elements on your page, you should configure a few thing about the page, and we advise not to skip them:

  • Template Name – name you will see while working with the plugin and managing pages
  • Page Title – the SEO title of your page that’s shown in the browser
  • Page Description – the SEO description of the page
  • Custom CSS – write any CSS you want to apply to the page you’re customizing
  • Footer Code – enter any Javascript code in the footer. Javascript code you insert is disabled in the editor.
  • Background – choose from transparent, solid background, gradient background, image, video or animated background
