How to Edit Your Page with the Default WordPress Editor

The default WordPress page editor is easier to use when writing or editing content. However, it does not allow as many design layout options as a Beaver Builder page.

To edit the text simply click the text you want to edit and start typing. Very similar to using standard word processor.

When you’ve completed your changes click the update button.
