Themify Builder Plugin V4.5 Beta Version Available

We recently announced the release of the Builder 4.5 Beta Version, and now we've got the Builder Plugin 4.5 Beta as a standalone plugin for you all!

In this latest version, we basically re-coded the entire Builder core to now use Javascript for a better and faster user experience. Along with these performance enhancements, we've added many new and exciting Builder features! We've left the full details on our original announcement so you can read that there.

Themify Tutorial How to Create SEO Optimized Images on WordPress

We’re excited to be sharing a new tutorial from a guest, Dr. Arnold Robinson III.
