Beaver Builder is a drag and drop page builder plugin for WordPress that aims to help you build custom sites in minutes not months.
The plugin comes with a range of professional looking home page and content page layouts, as well as a great selection of useful modules that can be dragged and dropped into place. Everything on your pages can be fully customized, allowing you to personalize your designs as much as you like.
As the page builder WordPress plugin category is becoming increasingly competitive, this review will help you decide if this is the right page drag and drop builder for you.
The Beaver Builder page builder plugin works with any WordPress theme, including your custom designs. However, depending on the pricing plan you choose, it does come with its own theme to ensure you can get up and running as quickly as possible.
While there are many page builder plugins available for WordPress, not all of them are front end builders that allow you to directly build and edit your site’s layouts and content on the front end of your website.
Beaver Builder however, is a front end page editor and builder, so rather than working with an abstract system that is used to provide a representation of the layout of your pages, Beaver Builder lets you carry out your work in a way that closely resembles how your visitors will experience it when it goes live.
The main advantages of this is that it saves you from having to mentally translate the building blocks on the page in order to try and determine how they will look to your visitors. It also speeds up the design process considerably as you are no longer constantly switching between browser windows and waiting for pages to reload.
As well as the intuitive interface, one of the highlights of Beaver Builder is the selection of 12 pre-built home page and 11 inner page layouts. The second group includes templates for pages such as about us, services, portfolios, contact, and blog archive pages, as well as a few other options.
All layouts can be fully customized with the builder or used as they are out of the box. You can view the full selection of layouts and see them in action on the BeaverBuilder site.
The home pages that you build can be setup to be full width, and the included templates can double up as landing pages. This helps make Beaver Builder a great option for anyone looking to add professional landing or sales pages to their current theme and website.
The modules that can be inserted into the layouts are all very impressive. Among the many options you get access to are calls to action buttons, sliders, icons, maps, pricing tables, and social buttons, to name a few.
Builder Beaver is certainly a feature packed option, but how easy it is to use will greatly affect how much value you get from this drag and drop page builder tool. So let’s take a look at the Beaver Builder user experience.
Using the Beaver Builder Plugin
Once the plugin is activated on your site, with or without with the optional theme, you can start using this tool straight away.
There is a small set of options available for configuring the plugin, but they don’t take long to work through. From the settings you can decide which of the modules to enable, which page templates to use, and which post types to enable the builder for.
This means that you can use Beaver Builder to design both posts and pages – something that isn’t always on offer with other plugins of this type.
