Extends the themeBesides the usual modules such as buttons, text, accordions, Live Composer comes with special post types like Projects, Galleries, Downloads, Testimonials, Staff and Partners which push any theme to the next level.
Module OptionsEach of the modules comes with many functionality and styling options which allows countless variations to be made easily and without any coding. Want to change paddings, margin, font size, font families, border, background… it’s EASY.
Responsive OptionsEasily adjust the modules for tablets and phones with the help of numerous simple to use options that each of the modules comes with.
Templates SystemUsing the template system you can easily export and import content from one page to another, even from one website to another. LC also comes with some premade templates you can use and modify to your needs, and there will be many more templates to come.
Single Post TemplatesApart from being able to create custom pages, Live Composer also allows you to create post templates that will be used when a single post is shown ( like a blog post ). You can of course have as many templates as you wish, you can choose which post will use which template.
Acces ControlAccess control allows you to set who can use Live Composer features. Separate options for who can add/edit/delete downloads, projects, portfolios…
