Beaver Builder 2.5 Alpha

Yes, will be in Lite as well.

Yes, safer, if feasable on your side, maybe you could already do it for the most popular, beginning by Yoast Duplicate Post?

True, there’s a bunch of these plugins: Search Results for “duplicate post” |

The issue is here there are strict rules for hosting on wporg and one of those rules is you shouldn’t be messing with other plugins functionality. Our link will only show up if the layout is already a bb layout.

Oh ok, it makes sense.

Thanks Jamie, I thought they would.

Working on getting a custom icon I have added to my Font Awesome Pro Kit to be used in BB.
Added alpha and the FA plugin.

It looks like from a FA setup point of view to enable custom icons in the kits, they have to be switched from Webfont to SVG. That will break the icons in BB wont it?

The FA plugins says if I change from webfont to svg it will break BB.

Has anyone done this successfully yet?

yea the kit has to be webfont, but you can still add your custom icon as svg, FA kit will serve it as webfont

actually the custom icon stuff might not be in alpha2 yet lol just realised the PR is not merged yet :stuck_out_tongue: sorry lol deffo will be in next tho

Using the patch from @pross (so probably alpha 3) the FA custom icons in Kits are working well within BB.

I did have some issues getting the FA plugin working and saving settings. The Nginx default config we were using doesn’t allow the PUSH, DELETE or PATCH requests which the plugin needs, so I had to create Nginx custom headers to allow these. In case anyone else has a similar issues on Nginx. It tested fine on Litespeed.

It was a simple setup after this. Add your FA API key and select your Kit in the FA plugin and it then just shows in BB

Will we be able to collapse and expand the elements in the outline panel in a future update? When viewing an already built page seeing a full list of the modules, columns and rows on the page might be a little overwhelming.

It might also be useful to provide the ability to apply meaningful label to rows, modules or columns perhaps it could default to a the id.

Hi Jay, yes expand/collapse is on the radar. But it will be after we finish the work for moving items in the Outline Panel. Alpha 4 you will be able to move modules. Rows/Columns to come.

You can already give elements a Label in the Advanced tab and it will show in the Outline Panel :slight_smile:

In 2.5 Alpha 4 its not possible to edit Global Column Settings

WP Version: 5.7.2
Language: de_DE
Parent Theme: generatepress
Child Theme: generatepress-child
PHP Version: 7.4.16
Beaver Builder: 2.5-alpha.4
Server Info: nginx/1.14.2

How to reproduce:

  1. Create an Row with some Columns
  2. Save the Row as Global
  3. Go to the Global Editor and try to open a Column Setting

What should happen:

  • The Column Settings should open, as they does with the same saved Row in Beaver Builder Version:

What is happening:

  • A new Tab is called with a empty Page (“about:blank”)

I just changed from Alpha back to Stable and it worked again, switched back again to Alpha and it shows the same Problem.

Test with:
Windows 10

  • Chrome Version 90.0.4430.212 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit)
  • Firefox Version 88.0.1 (64-Bit)

Hope you guys finding the Problem, and maybe fix it in the Alpha.5 → Loving BB :kissing:
