Some of the options in the styling tab also exist in the Salient WPBakery Page Builder blog element which you can set (differently if desired) on every instance you create in the page builder. These options include: Blog Type & Load In Animation. The options in here (theme options panel) will still be used on the posts page as you define in Settings > Reading of the WordPress admin panel and on all blog archive pages (category, tag, date etc.).
- Blog Type Controls the format that your blog will display in e.g. sidebar, full width etc.
