I am new to wordpress and I am making a website where the customer will use wordpress as a CMS. I've never used wordpress before so I don't really know what I'm doing and I'm playing around with a theme I have downloaded.

The main content of the theme pages is built using a visual editor where you add and remove elements from a list of things such as text editor and social icons etc. I dont know if this visual editor is common to most templates? I'm pretty sure it wasnt there when i was looking at the 2 built in templates with wordpress.

Anyhow I am making a page which will consists of be several text areas and widget areas but I only want one of these to be editable by the customer. Is this possible? I believe there are plugins to restrict the admin panel but I don't know if these would allow me to turn off the visual editor and just let one of the text elements be edited in a text editor as is typical of a simple wordpress page

thanks in advance
