Hi Jamie,

This sounds huge!!!

But , I don’t understand how to use it. I have a Singular layout applied to all posts and that contains the Post Content Module. What do I do next?

Try to use BB to edit any of the Posts content area that have that Singular layout applied.

See for more details

Sorry Jamie. I am an idiot!

I forgot to active Beaver Builder for posts on this install . Now I see it. Brilliant stuff.

No worries - it’s all new so we expect questions :slight_smile:

Hi Jamie.

I have this working fine on posts, but I tried a Custom Post Type and had no luck. Is that the way it is right now and is the plan to extend this to CPT’s ?

Do you have BB enabled for the CPT?

Yes I do. Not going get fooled a 2nd time!

I just tested a CPT and had no issues. Could you submit a ticket with your details of how your CPT was setup. Maybe even a screen recording that goes over:

  1. CPT Setup
  2. The Themer Layout
  3. What happens when you try to use BB for content on a post in a CPT with that Themer layout applied

And you can mention my name in the ticket too so that it comes to me.

Many thanks Jamie.

I sent in a ticket for your attention. I’m sure it must be user error.

So for anyone wondering, it looks like our next Alpha resolved @waumsley’s issue. That will be out very soon!

Hi Jamie,

I think I have worked out all, but these two features:

Add defaults for Themer shortcodes
Add field connections to Global element

Could you give me a hint?

Many thanks

Yea this is powerful

Concider this shortcode [wpbb post:custom_field key='name'] what if it had no value, maybe you’d want a defualt…
so [wpbb post:custom_field key='name' default='Dave'].

Pretty good, but i hear you ask, what if i want the output of a shortcode to be the default?
[wpbb post:custom_field key='name' wpbb_default='wpbb post:custom_field key=whatever'].
