    Hi guys!

    The situation is this. I’m making a website for a ballet school and I’m using a theme I bought a while ago. This theme is designed especially for dance schools. It looked nice at the beginning, but turns out to have quite some flaws. The main problem is the fact that I can add courses, but the course pages that are created are not editable at all. I don’t like the page setup, and it shows all kinds of information I don’t want to display on the page, like the teacher, price, participants, etc. The theme already had a drag and drop plugin installed (WPBakery Page Builder). However, these course pages don’t have the option to edit them with this page builder. So, I’m now trying other options to fix this situation.

    (Note: the theme comes with a nice looking course-grid. If I want to use the grid, I’ll have to hack my way around it.)

    I started by editing the existing .php-file, which is a bit long and complicated because it takes all these variables and displays them in various ways. However, I ended up deleting almost everything, so I came up with a better idea: copy the single page .php-file and paste it into the course .php-file. This works, but I still can’t edit it with the page builder.

    So my question is: how do I make a page editable? I assume it’s a property in one of the 1 zillion .php (or other) files, but I can’t find it… 🙁

    Thanks in advance!

    Since that is a commercial plugin, we ask that you please go to their official support channel, so you can get support from the people who know it best: https://support.wpbakery.com/

    Forum volunteers are not given access to commercial products, so they would not know why it is not working properly. Other community members who may have faced your issue might be able to help you but your best bet is your product’s developer. Keep in mind we encourage you to use the official support venues, as it allows the developers to be aware of issues with their code and gives back to the community in a more robust way.

    Hi James!

    Thanks for your reply! 🙂
    I don’t think this is an issue, but a setting. I prefer the Beaver Builder for my other websites, and I think this one wouldn’t work as well. I think these pages are set to ‘not editable’, but I can’t find such a setting.
    However… I’m not sure so maybe you’re right! And it’s not a bad idea to ask the plugin support guys anyway. I will ask them, and leave this here a bit longer. Maybe someone here is familiar with this as well.

    Thanks for your help! ^_^

    Are they editable if you deactivate the WPBakery plugin?

    OMG YOU WERE RIGHT! It turns out that the Bakery Builder has a lot of design options, and you can customize which pages are editable here!!

    So, problem solved! THANK YOU!!! 😀
