Using Beaver Builder

Two of the recommended plugins are:

Once you will have both these plugins installed, you will be able quickly to load layouts from the demo of Derive or create your own page layouts.

If you haven’t used Beaver Builder before, we recommend you to start here.

Beaver Builder allows you to use any existing WordPress widgets you want! For example, you can easily insert regular widgets or shortcodes to display a map in a page with a custom layout created using the page builder.

You can find these widgets in the WordPress Widgets group from Modules:
