Update a Beaver Builder global setting#

Normally you manage global settings at Tools > Global Settings in the Beaver Builder editor, but you can also change individual global settings with a WP-CLI command by using the setting's ID and assigning a new value. Here's the basic command:

wp beaver global-update

Options:

  • --id
    The ID for the global option.

  • --value
    The value for the global option.

Example#

Hide the page title for the WordPress theme you're using by changing the value of the CSS selector option in Tools > Global settings in the Beaver Builder editor.

wp beaver global-update --id=default_heading_selector --value=.fl-post-header

This command assigns the value .fl-post-header to the CSS selector field in Tools > Global Settings.

Note

.fl-post-header is the selector for the Beaver Builder Theme and is the default CSS selector value. Follow this article to find the selector for your theme.
