Builder Plugin V4.5 Beta Release

Builder Plugin V4.5 Beta Release

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).

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. Continue below for a brief roundup and a friendly disclaimer before you install the Builder Plugin Beta!

Builder Plugin 4.5 Beta Features

  • Faster Performance: We are now using Javascript to load the module lightbox, and the lightbox is only loaded when the user triggers it. This helps the Builder to load much faster than before.
  • New Modules: New Opt-in Form and Login Form modules give you even more control for newsletter signups and membership sites.
  • 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.

    You said it is now faster to load. What about those of us that use it with the themify themes? I want to make sure my sites are loading faster as well.
