    When I activate there is no settings page or options page and no instruction page. So I’m lost.

    Hi Donald, the plugin creates a widget. You can use this widget with Site Origin Page Builder.

    When creating a layout with Site Origin Page Builder, with this widget you can show the title, excerpt, featured image or any meta of actual post in your layout.

    You can use as many instances of the widget as you need in the same layout.

    Please take a look at the plugin description.

    Best regards

    I have tried to create a new post using the widget in the panels but there is no way to save as a template and all it creates is a blank page. The photos you have in the description are not what I see, so it is hard to guess how they work.

    Before I waste both our time, is this plugin capable of creating a custom layout for my posts that I can use instead of the default one? If not, then it’s not what I need.

    Thank you.

    Hi Donald, yes, that is exactly what the plugin does.

    Once you have created a post with pagebuilder using the widgets, just take a look to this post to see how to re-use it in other posts

    Hi,

    I’m sorry, not trying to be difficult but the post you referenced had this to say:

    “Unfortunately, there is no way to template in Page Builder right now. It’s been mentioned a few times so it’s something we have on the list, just haven’t implemented yet. Sorry we don’t have more here.”

    So more confused.

    How do you get the template you created to be one of the templates available to use. I’m sorry, I think I’m asking basic instruction question that are not covered.

    Hi Donald,

    this plugin is an addon of Page Builder, so it is supposed you know how to use PageBuilder and Clone Pages , in the link you can read:

    ‘Within Page Builder click Prebuilt at the top and then Clone Pages which can be found on the left’

    Used with a post, when you have created a post using the Constructor Widget, then exact steps would be:

    1. Create new post,
    2. then click on Page Builder Tab,
    3. then click ‘Layouts’,
    4. then on the left click on ‘Clone Posts’

    and the layout will be imported in your post layout.

    Best Regards
