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! (This beta version of our new Builder plugin is only for use on non-Themify themes. If you'd like to test out the Builder 4.5 Beta on a Themify theme, please follow the guide in the original Beta pre-release announcement).
Builder Plugin 4.5 Beta Features
- New Modules: New Opt-in Form and Login Form modules give you even more control for newsletter signups and membership sites.
- Bing Maps: This is a great alternative for those concerned about the Google Maps Pricing Change.
- New Styling Features: So many more ways to style your modules! We've added options for hover styling, height and min-height styling (instead of padding), rounded corner options, text shadow, box shadow, blend modes, and more!
- New Find and Replace Tool: Easily find and replace content, mass replace, or edit specific content manually, all within the Builder.
- Floating or Docked Panel: Two new Builder panel interface modes: floating or docked. Pop the Builder panel out, or drag it to the side to dock it for a bigger working space.
- Themify Setting Quick Search: Easily search the Themify panel settings without having to look through the settings tab.
