Presence – Beaver Builder Integration

Written by Pavel Ciorici on in 0 comments

Some information from this article may refer to our Inspiro theme, but the instructions are actual for Presence theme too.

Recently, we’ve replaced the recommended page builder in some of our themes from Unyson to Beaver Builder. You can read more about this on our blog.
If you prefer to use Unsyon, please see instructions here.

Using Beaver Builder

After the installation of Presence theme, you will be asked to install and activate recommended plugins.

Two of the recommended plugins are:

Beaver Builder (Lite)
WPZOOM Addons for Beaver Builder

Once you will have both these plugins installed, you will be able quickly to load layouts from the demo of Presence or create your own page layouts.

If you haven’t used Beaver Builder before, we recommend you to start here.


How to load Demo Templates in Beaver Builder?

When you create or edit a page, you will see a block called Beaver Builder where you can launch the builder:

Clicking that blue button, you will open the front-end page builder.

If you want to quickly load pre-built templates for Presence, click on the Templates area:

Quickly insert in pages pre-built templates

If you use a premium version of Beaver Builder, then you will need to select the Presence group to see these templates:

If you want more templates and content templates, consider upgrading to Beaver Builder Standard ($99):


Use the right Page Template

In order to get the best results, make sure to set the correct Page Templates to pages you create using the Beaver Builder:

Important Notice

  1. In order to display the slideshow at the top, select the Homepage (Page Builder) page template for the page that you’ll set as Front Page
  2. To set a page you’ve created as front page, go to Settings > Reading and select in the Front Page dropdown.

    How to add Widgets & Shortcodes in Beaver Builder

    One thing that we like about Beaver Builder is that it’s not limited to a specific number of modules that you can use in your pages. Beaver Builder allows you to use any existing WordPress widgets and shortcodes you want!

    You can find the widgets in the WordPress Widgets group from Modules:

    Shortcodes can be inserted in a simple Text Editor module:

    In the above example we use the WooCommerce Shortcodes to display our most popular products. This shortcode includes many options and parameters, so make sure to check the documentation if you want to display your products.
