Support » Plugin: WordPress Page Builder - Beaver Builder » Kinda broken (on my website)

  • I wanted this plugin specifically to make a landing page, unfortunately this (or at least the free version) has no way of removing the header, sidebar or footer so i used another plugin for that. (it doesn’t work with the Slider revolution blank template)

    I only played around with it for 10-15 minutes, cause unfortunately adding an embed code for a youtube video simply doesn’t work.
    Using the video widget/module it just says Saving indefinitely, using the HTML widget/module the video does show up, but again it just says saving probably forever, tried this multiple times.

    So i tried it on the demo site of the plugin and there i could add a video, so maybe there is something (a theme or a plugin) on my website that is not 100% compatible.
    (which is why i didn’t give it a 1 star rating)

    Also i’m not really happy with the text editor, it uses the same one wordpress does, which is kinda crap to be honest, that’s why we wanted a page builder no ? otherwise a column shortcode plugin and a bit of HTML can do most of the same things.
    At least use something like the TinyMCE Advanced plugin for that, so i can chose fonts and fonts sizes, without using custom html code. Which by the way is installed on my website but does not work with Beaver builder.

    Hey @joegp,

    Thanks for taking the time to write this review in!

    Our page builder only works within the content area of the theme, it doesn’t work on the header, footer, or sidebar. Styling or removing those sections from a page is a job that the theme does. 🙂

    The video embed issue is most likely something isolated to your site and if you want to file a ticket for it, we’ll be more than happy to check.

    We didn’t want to bloat the plugin and WP already comes with the tinyMCE editor so we opted to use that instead. If it gets requested often by the community though, we wouldn’t mind enhancing the Text Editor module(I believe we’re already working on that but not 100% sure).

    Any kind of enhancements to the tinyMCE editor from 3rd party plugins are disabled on the Text Editor module since most, if not all, aren’t coded to work on the frontend.

    Hopefully, this helps clarify some of the pain points you’re experiencing with our builder. 🙂
