Extending Builder

The Themify Builder has a plethora of modules (you can see a list of them here: http://themify.me/docs/builder) and addons, all of which are used to add more Builder functionality. Although these cover majority of the needs of users, we're continuing to see an increase with the demand for custom modules that's made based on user design/layout. Understanding that it's impossible for us to keep up with this growing demand, we decided to create this tutorial to allow you to create your own Builder module.
Advantages:

  • Flexibility customizing the look and feel of your site
  • Customize how the content is displayed
  • Re-use your module on any site
  • Easy to build for developers
  • Easy to use for anyone
  • Same functionality as the Themify Builder module

LET'S GET STARTED:

Each module in the Builder consists of two files, a module-*.php file (registers the module and it's options), and a template-*.php file (handles the display of the module). These file for the default modules that come with the Builder are located in the /modules directory inside the Builder, and the template files can be found in the /templates directory. We can add new modules via a plugin, or include them in the theme.

Below is a sample module that includes most of the field types supported by Builder, you can use this module as a guideline on how to create options for your custom modules.

New Builder Feature – Row Overlay

Ensuring that your content doesn't get drowned by background images, sliders, or videos is crucial when designing your site. Undertanding the importance of this, we added the Row Overlay feature on the Builder styling section. This feature allows you to create a color overlay on top of your background image/slider/video, making sure that the content on your row stands out. An additional feature we've added with this is the Overlay Hover Color option. This gives you the ability to highlight the content on your row when users cursor hovers on top of the row. Check out the demo below and see it in action.
