It’s available as an extension in a massive selection of alternatives and is also automatically installed into Magento Commerce, so you don’t need to connect your store with any third-party systems to introduce it. All you need to do is to enable Page Builder in the Advanced Content Tools or ask your developer to do it. After enabling Page Builder, it will become available for use in CMS Pages, Dynamic Blocks, etc.
Its workspace features all the functionality of the leading website builders, such as:
- choosing a layout from a row, column, and tabs;
- setting the border and background color, image, or video;
- placing elements into layouts — texts, links, headings, buttons, dividers;
- inserting media — images, video files, banners, sliders, Google Maps;
- adding media content — blocks, dynamic blocks, products, and items recommendations that align with specific guidelines;
Content types and elements placed in the layouts can be edited, moved, hidden, shown, duplicated, or removed with a single click. These features are displayed as icons intuitive to the user.
