Post Types
Enabled post types will appear under this heading. The default WordPress post types are pages and posts. Other post types might appear depending on the plugins you have activated. For example, if WooCommerce is installed, the products post type will appear. Use the checkbox to enable or disable Page Builder for each post type.
