Thanks to its visual conception, the REVO Composer makes you be able to create your pages much faster, comfortable and efficiently than in a common way. The GDay News Theme gives you possibility to choose between using of shortcodes and this advanced page builder.
How to start
To start using of the REVO Composer, you first need to create a new page. After you choose the Add New Page option (or open an already created one), you will find the REVO Composer tab added above the content editor's tools. Click the tab and get started.
Now, you can see an empty page content area divided into 12 columns and several groups of tools - page elements, which you can add to the page, compose and set up them, while the elements arrangement is visualized. Moreover, there is a live preview option to make you be able to see result of your work before you publish it.
Using of the REVO Composer
To add an element to your page, simply click the appropriate icon. Depending on type of element, it will align with a various number of columns in default. You can change width of the element clicking the left or right arrow in its header (the Size option ). Beside the cross icon for removing the element, there is a group of four tool icons in each element frame's header:
Settings: Use this tool to set up the main properties of the element. Preview: The live preview option. Allows you to see a real content of the element. Be aware of that depending on a content, the live preview may slow down work with the page builder. Copy: Click this icon to make a copy of the element, including its setting. Save: Use this option to save the element´s settings as a preset for this kind of element for the page you are working with. If you then add another instance of the element to your page, it will take the saved presets.
Each element box contains a title field to be filled in or renamed. All elements can be rearranged by a drag'n drop method. Simply move your mouse over the element until a cross appears. Then move the box to the position where you want to place the element.
NOTE: Every new element will be automatically put below the previously inserted ones. Then you can easily rearrange it.

To assign your sidebars to the chosen layout, click the settings icon and follow the appropriate descriptions. Also refer to Sidebar Manager section.
