It is really easy to add another element to a column in the front-end editor of the Visual Composer. Let’s try to add an element. To do that, hover your mouse over a column and you can see an orange button at the top.

Append an element to the column

Appending an element to a column in the back-end editor is really simple. I often prefer this view because you can definitely tell where you’re going to add that element because of the spacing between the rows.

To add an element, hover your mouse over the column where you want to add the element and click on the + icon.

Select any elements that you want to add

Choose any element that you want to add. Whether it’d be a Text Block, a Separator, or even a Video Player element. In my case, I’ll choose the Separator element.

Separator Settings box will pop-up

Once done with the changes, click on Save Changes and close to close the separator settings box. If you want to add as many as elements as you want, just continue the process and click the + icon again to add another element.

This is one of the beauties of the Visual Composer. You can manipulate these elements as you want. You can move them around and edit it’s properties easily.
