The free Page Builder plugin replaces both the default WordPress “Gutenberg” editor as well as the TinyMCE “Classic” editor. However, you can use any of these editors for an individual post or page depending on your preference.

Editor Selections

  • Post and Page Builder – Recommended, includes complete functionality
  • WordPress Editor – Modern WordPress editor. Requires WordPress 5.0 or Gutenberg plugin activated
  • Classic Editor – Basic WordPress editor without BoldGrid features
  • Default – Allow your other plugins and WordPress to control the editor

Choosing an editor per post type

  • In the Dashboard, navigate to Post and Page Builder → Settings
  • Choose an option for each post type

Choosing an editor per page

  • In the Dashboard, navigate any post or page
  • If the Post and Page Builder or Classic Editor are active, the editor menu is in the upper right hand corner
  • If the WordPress Editor is active, click the three dots in the upper right to show more. Other editor options will appear in the Plugins section

  1. My page editor stopped working. I cannot drag and drop. I only see the text of the code. I do have an “Add Block” button, but nothing happens when I hit it.

    I have read articles about compatibility issues with some plugins, but I have de-activated each of my plugins and the problem is still not solved.

    WordPress version 5.4.2, Post and Page Builder Version Version 1.13.0, Post and Page Builder Premium Version1.0.4

    • Hello Amanda,
      If you don’t see the visual editor tab above your page or post, it’s possible that your user profile may have the visual editor disabled. To find it, navigate to Users -> All Users, and then hover over your username and click the Edit link. The first option on this screen is a checkbox to disable the visual editor:
      Disable the visual editor option
      If this doesn’t resolve the issue, please let us know in the Support Forums and we’ll be happy to help.
