Page builder plugins have changed the way people create a website with WordPress. Before the page builder era, only users who have a programming skill capable of creating a WordPress theme. Today, you can create a WordPress theme even if you have no programming skill thanks to the theme builder feature of a page builder plugin.
A WordPress page builder plugin allows you to create a beautiful page without writing any single line of code. You can then set the page you created as the homepage of your website. Today, some popular WordPress themes — including Newspaper — also come with a default page builder plugin, allowing you to customize the homepage of your website using a visual drag-and-drop interface. Again, no need to write any single line of code.
In case you are new to a page builder plugin and haven’t used one before. There is one crucial thing you need to do after you are done creating a page you project to be the homepage. You need to set it as the homepage manually yourself since, by default, WordPress displays your latest posts on its homepage unless you set a certain page to be displayed on the homepage.
