New Builder Styling Feature: CSS Transform

New Builder Styling Feature: CSS Transform

We are excited to anncounce a new styling feature in the Themify Builder – Transform styling. The transform styling lets you rotate, scale, skew, or translate an element. The new styling feature gives you more control and possibilities for layout design. Now you can manipulate the appearance of any row, column, or module without having to use a graphic software or write any custom CSS code. You can move elements around, stretch them, flip them upside down, or spin them however you want it. With the easy to use Builder styling interface, applying transform styling is fun and quick. Go have fun and be creative with the new Builder transform styling feature!


In the old days, you would scale the font size and padding to make things smaller or larger. Now you can use the scale styling to reduce or enlarge the size of a module. The scale values can be applied horizontally, vertically, or both.

Transform: Scale


With the translate transformation, you can move the element horizontally and/or vertically. It is great for shifting an element without having to use margin or padding.

Transform: Translate


The rotate transformation allows you to rotate an element in the X-axis, Y-axis, and/or Z-axis. To make an element rotate to 90 degree, simply enter 90 in the Z-axis.

Transform: Rotate


To make an element appear in a slant, you would use the skew styling. Again, you can enter skew values in horizontal and/or vertical direction.

Transform: Skew


Best of all, the transform styling is also available for the hover state. If you want to make a module pop up on hover, try to add the scale and translate values on the hover state.

      Which feature are you referring? Just double checked again. All features seem to be working. Could you provide more details if you are encountering any issue?

    To @Lee:

    Agreed! Very convenient! Especially that it’s respecting responsive breakpoints already.

    Only… It’s out there already! But then again, shouldn’t we all do the testing on a staging site before we update our live sites? Or at least hold our horses and watch the support forum for a while? ;-)

    Thanks, Themify!

    Where do you go to get this, is it part of the builder theme now or a plugin that needs to be added.

    I looked at my install and so far do not see anything and there was an update to my ultra theme that I am using.

    Thanks ahead of time

      It is part of the theme/builder framework. You just need to update the Themify theme that you are using.

        I am using Themify Ultra–current version. How do I get to this or add it?

          You just need to update to the latest version. You should see “Transform” styling on any module, column, and row.

    Sounds Good!,
    Really it amazing because I have the other WordPress builders with a lifetime license included Themify but I mostly like to use this due to the very need & clean UI with easy-to-understand all the options.
    Hope to update the more advanced options in the future.
    Thanks, Themify.
