Beaver Builder is equipped with an extensive collection of modules that provide users with a wide range of options to create and design websites that cater to their needs and preferences.
What are Modules?
In Beaver Builder, modules are building blocks that contain content and can be added to any column. These modules are similar to WordPress widgets, but provide more advanced customization and styling choices. Each module serves a specific purpose, such as text, images, videos, buttons, and more. You can configure and arrange each module to create unique designs and layouts without requiring any coding experience.
In order to ensure consistent color and typography, Beaver Builder modules follow a cascading inheritance model whereby they inherit the styling provided by the current theme. This means that when users add headings or text to layouts using modules such as the Heading or Text modules, they will automatically adopt the heading and text styling of the theme.
You can override this behavior by using the module styling options. For instance, if a user adds a Heading module to their layout, they can adjust the heading font size or change the heading text color using the Heading module styling options.
The following diagram provides a visual representation of how the process works.
Launch Beaver Builder on your page or post.
On the Top bar, click the Plus symbol (+) to open the Content Panel.
Click the Modules tab to access all Standard Modules.
Beaver Builder groups modules into different subgroups for better organization. These subgroups can be accessed via the Modules group dropdown menu. There may also be subgroups of third-party modules, depending on other plugins you have installed.
The following are the different module subgroups available.
All modules included with Beaver Builder are listed in the Standard Modules group. If you disable modules via the Beaver Builder settings, they do not appear in the Standard Modules group.
If you have the Advanced Custom Fields plugin installed, any ACF blocks you create will appear in the ACF Blocks group.
WordPress Patterns (Reusable Blocks)
Any WordPress Patterns (Reusable Blocks) created will appear in the WordPress Patterns group.
The Themer Modules subgroup displays a list of all Beaver Themer modules that are available when using the builder on a Beaver Themer layout.
Most WordPress widgets, including third-party ones, can be integrated into your Beaver Builder layout. Third-party widgets, however, may require custom code to work properly.
