Generate: Page Builders Integration: WPBakery Page Builder

This guide refers to basic usage of Page Generator Pro with WPBakery Page Builder.  It is not a substitute for referring to the Generate: Content Documentation, which must be read first to understand all Content Group configuration options.
WPBakery Page Builder is not Visual Composer.

Prerequisites

Older versions may work, however the steps below may not reflect the available functionality.

Setup

Failure to follow all steps in this section may result in incorrect working functionality.

Before using WPBakery Page Builder in your Content Group, you’ll need to:

  • Navigate to WPBakery Page Builder > Role Manager
  • Under the Role Manager tab, for each WordPress User Role that needs access to WPBakery Page Builder in Page Generator Pro, edit the following settings:
    • Post types: Custom.
      Page Generator Pro: Page Builders: Visual Composer
    • Backend editor: Enabled
  • Click Save Changes when done.

Add a Content Group

To add a new Content Group to Page Generator Pro, click the Add New button below the Content Groups title, which can be found towards the top of the screen:
Page Generator Pro: Generate Content:

You will then be presented with a screen similar to the one used to edit your WordPress Posts and Pages:
[]

It’s recommended that you first:

Once saved, click either the Backend Editor or Frontend Editor button, depending on your preference of editor.
Page Generator Pro: Page Builders: WPBakery Page Builder

Edit a Content Group

To edit an existing Content Group in Page Generator Pro, click the Title of the Group that you want to edit:
Page Generator Pro: Generate: Group Actions

Click either the Backend Editor or Frontend Editor button, depending on your preference of editor.
Page Generator Pro: Page Builders: WPBakery Page Builder

Dynamic Elements

WPBakery Page Builder’s Text Block uses the Classic Editor / TinyMCE, therefore allowing you to build each Dynamic Element’s shortcode using the UI:
Page Generator Pro: Generate: Content: WPBakery Page Builder: Text Block

How to do this can be found in the Adding: Classic Editor / TinyMCE section of each of the Documentation links below:

For other WPBakery Page Builder modules, you’ll need to manually build each Dynamic Element’s shortcode using the documented parameters.  These can be found in the Adding: Page Builders section of each of the Documentation links below:

Common Issues

Backend Editor and Frontend Editor Buttons do not display in a Content Group

Follow the Setup section of this document.

Still don’t see these options?  Some Themes disable WPBakery’s Page Builder frontend editor.  Whilst Page Generator Pro makes every best effort to re-enable frontend editing, it is not always possible.  In this case, you would need to raise a support query with your theme provider to resolve.
