Genesis Dambuster


IMPORTANT: This plugin can ONLY be used with Genesis Child Themes

  • Tweak your theme template on a page by page or post by post by post basis
  • Allow the page content to be full width (edge to edge)
  • Remove the header, the primary and secondary navigation menus
  • Remove the post title, entry header, post info and breadcrumbs at the top of the post
  • Remove the post meta, entry footer, author box, comments and after entry widget area at the foot of the post
  • Remove the footer widgets and the footer
  • Remove the custom background image and color

You will typically use this plugin for landing pages, portfolio pages, etc where you want to remove extra clutter from the page because you have a specific purpose in mind and want to remove any distractions.

The full width setting allows you to have edge-to-edge backgrounds so you can make the page look more like a home page than a standard internal page

How to Use The Plugin

  1. Select the page or post of interest and click to Edit it in the WordPress Editor
  2. Scroll down to the Genesis Dambuster section and make the required tweaks to the page sections, check the Enable Tweaks checkbox and finally click the Update button in the sidebar to save your changes.
  3. If you are using Beaver Builder, switch to the Beaver Builder Editor, and edit the section of interest and change it from Fixed Width to Full Width

How to Set Up The Plugin Defaults

If you don’t want to specify all the settings for every post then you can set up default values

  1. Go to the “Genesis” section, and choose “Dambuster”
  2. Set your preferred defaults
  3. Changing the defaults only affects new pages; it will not affect existing pages that have Dambuster settings

This plugin is amazing and opens up Genesis to become anything you want

I had been looking at getting a “builder” plugin for custom pages, when I came across this nifty little plugin. It is PERFECT! In fact with Dambuster, you don’t even need a builder plugin, because using it + the built in Genesis column classes allows you to create the same layout functionality without a lot of bloat. Thanks for making this.

Why Didn’t I Know About This Sooner?

I spent hours coding a landing page template that I wasn’t happy with. I discovered this plugin, added Beaver Builder, and 15 minutes later I had a clean looking landing page that I’m thrilled with. Thanks!!

Powerfully simple… simply powerful!!

Thank you, Russell Jamieson, for creating such a simple yet powerful add-on for Genesis / Beaver Builder users. This is a MUST HAVE for the digital toolbox. Works perfectly. Wish I had found it sooner. Cheers.

Dambuster + Genesis + Beaver Builder = Pure Awesome

This is the missing link. This wonderful little plugin gives your Beaver Builder / Genesis-powered site a clean slate to start from to build beautiful full-width content. Even if you don’t use Genesis, if you use Beaver Builder, just install Dambuster and your life is instantly better!
