Creating content will not create problems for you if you have minimal knowledge of WordPress
All the content of this topic is compiled on the basis of WPBakery shortcodes, which means that it will not be difficult for you to create your unique content on each page.

In order for you to use WPbakery in full, you need to go to the corresponding WPBackery tab in the admin panel- > General settings. Here you should go to the second tab «managing roles» and set an arbitrary record type. Put a checkbox on both pages and posts. Save the changes.

Before you start creating content on a page or post, we recommend that you read the WPBakery documentation. This will make you feel more confident in creating content.
For our template, especially for you, we have created custom elements (shortcodes) of WP Bakery, thanks to which you can create content on the page without difficulty and without losing the overall style. A section with these elements is called Delia.

All you need to do is add a line to the page and add the corresponding element to it. We recommend that you do not delete the imported content immediately, as it will help you in the logical construction of your content.
After the element is added, click on its editing in the green zone and fill in the corresponding lines.

In order for the selected element to be displayed on the page in accordance with the Delia style, you should click on the edit line and put the stretch row and content (no paddings) in Row stretch and save the changes.

Don’t forget that you need to update the page after each change. This button is located in the upper-right corner.
