Welcome Archive Page Editor
Most WordPress themes come with a pre-defined design of pages like 404 or archive pages.
However, if you want to organize your latest content in a different (and unique) way, you might want a solution to design your archive page. Here it is! Welcome, a new Visual Composer Archive Page Editor (and say goodbye to default archive pages).
What if you were able to get 100% control over your WordPress website? Imagine: you can customize any page to adjust it to your or your audience’s needs. Does this sound unreachable and unrealistic? Not at all! From now it’s possible with the Visual Composer Archive Editor and a Premium subscription.
Archive Page Editor allows you to create custom archive page templates directly from the Visual Composer frontend editor. It means intuitive interface, no coding and all Visual Composer features at your fingertips.
For now, Archive Page Editor works only for the default post types and taxonomies. But keep your finger on the pulse, we are working hard to expand the functionality of the new editor.
With all those dignities Archive Page Editor is a great addition to the Visual Composer Theme Builder. Because now you can customize your archive pages based on the specific post type, category, or tag.
How exactly? Choose any page layout or create one-of-a-kind headers, footers, and sidebars. It has never been so easy.
