Moon Shop comes with Visual Layout Builder. This software allows you to forget about shortcodes and create most complex layouts within minutes without writing a single line of code!
Our Visual Layout Builder is based on widely popular Visual Composer. It has very simple and intuitive interface, but before getting started with building layouts, you may find it useful to get accustomed with Visual Composer documentation: http://kb.wpbakery.com/index.php?title=Visual_Composer.
By default, Builder is enabled for all post types except Slideshows and Logos. These settings can be overwritten via “WP-admin > Settings > Visual Composer”.
To start creating new layout click “BACKEND EDITOR” button (see fig. 1) on the top left of WYSIWYG (text editor). You can also edit layouts in front-end using the “FRONTEND EDITOR”. But please note that front-end editing tool is still just a bit sloppy (though it improves constantly) and we still recommend using back-end editor over it.
WYSIWYG editor changes to Visual Composer canvas. You can work with it as you do with regular Visual Composer.
It is easy to edit columns and rows: just click the “pen” icon on corresponding row or column:
