This tutorial is basic to intermediate – and assumes you already have a WordPress site using Visual Composer compatible theme and a live Etsy Shop with items available for purchase.

What is Visual Composer?

Visual Composer is a “page builder” plugin for WordPress which makes composing complex pages easier for non-developers and novices. Some WordPress sites have a page builder installed many don’t.

Use Page Templates in Visual Composer to Save Time

In this tutorial I am showing a client how to use a portfolio template I created for her website here: Ivy Wreden Art. Ivy needed a fast way to add a beautiful portfolio page to her site with a link to purchase each piece on her Etsy Shop – Ivy Wreden Art. None of the plugins available integrated well with her look and feel and so I created a portfolio template page for her.

This tutorial features:

The MODO Theme by Useful Pixels – my child theme with some customizations.
WordPress 4.5.3
Visual Composer by WP Bakery
