Pages and Posts

Build and design individual layouts for pages and posts with the YOOtheme Pro page builder.

Pages usually have their own individual layout created with the YOOtheme Pro page builder. Posts often use a template but can also be designed individually.


To use the YOOtheme Pro page builder, add a new page by clicking Pages → Add New and click the YOOtheme Builder button in the toolbar to the left. The YOOtheme Pro page builder will open in the WordPress customizer. If the page hasn't been saved before, a new draft page will automatically be created.

Add a YOOtheme Pro page

YOOtheme Pro pages are labeled with — YOOtheme. Editing a YOOtheme page opens the classic WordPress page editor view. The editor is blanked out and the YOOtheme Builder button is shown to access the page builder.

Edit a YOOtheme Pro page

Once a YOOtheme Pro page is created, it can also be accessed when using the WordPress customizer. Just browse to the specific page in the right preview and then click Builder in the customizer sidebar.

Open YOOtheme Pro page builder


Using the YOOtheme Pro page builder for individual posts works the same as for pages. The individual layout will be loaded instead of the post template.

Compared to pages, posts are also rendered on category pages and other parts of your website. If a post is designed individually with the page builder, these pages will render the whole post content with simple markup. This is why the post excerpt field should be rendered instead. Read more about it in the dynamic content documentation if the template is created with the page builder, and the blog and post documentation if the default template file is used.

Custom Post Types

YOOtheme Pro also supports custom post types. Individual layouts for custom post types can be created in the same way as for posts. The individual layout will be loaded instead of the custom post types template. Read the custom post type documentation for more information.


Since the page builder layout is saved directly in the page or post itself, WordPress revisions are supported out of the box. Each time a page or post is saved, a new revision is created. Click on Revisions to open the WordPress revisions system.

Only users with the capability to edit_theme_options have access to the WordPress customizer and therefore can use the YOOtheme Pro page builder. Learn more it in the WordPress Roles and Capabilities documentation.
