Enable prerelease updates

Beaver Builder makes alpha and beta prereleases available to license holders for all of their products. Normally, you have to download the first alpha or beta release and install it by uploading it. Once installed, the prerelease automatically notifies you of updates to new versions of the prerelease in the WordPress admin panel's Plugins > Installed plugins.

On Beaver Builder's Settings > Tools section on the WP admin panel, there's a Tools tab with a Prerelease updates section where you can enable your site to update to any beta prerelease that comes out. You can even enable updates to any new alpha prerelease, though that's not recommended for production sites.

Here's how to enable updates to prerelease versions.

Note

Enabling prerelease updates using this setting applies to all Beaver Builder products that you have installed. If you want updates to apply to only one product, continue to follow the instructions for the manual installation method in this article.

Enable beta prereleases#

  1. From the WP admin panel, go to Settings > Tools.
  2. On the Tools tab, scroll to the Prerelease updates section.
  3. Select the checkbox Enable beta updates.
  4. Click Save prerelease settings.

Enable alpha prereleases#

Because we don't encourage this setting, you won't see it until you have followed the instructions in the previous section to enable beta prereleases.

  1. From the WP admin panel, go to Settings > Tools.
  2. On the Tools tab, scroll to the Prerelease updates section.
  3. Select the checkbox Enable alpha updates.
    If you don't see this checkbox, enable Beta updates first and save.
  4. Click Save prerelease settings.
