Revamped Themify Builder Interface

Revamped Themify Builder Interface

Introducing a faster, better, and more powerful Builder Interface. Released with the framework 2.4.8 update, this new interface focuses on enhancing both functionality and user experience when using the Builder. We've outlined below key features that you won't want to miss.

  1. Draggable Lightbox - Drag the lightbox anywhere on your site as you edit your page.
  2. Resizable Lightbox - Adjust the size of the lightbox to any size that convenient for you, while editing your page.
  3. Live Preview - Get live preview as you edit the styling of any module.
  4. Preview - Preview updated module content by clicking on the "Preview" button.

This update not only brings a better interface, but it also comes with bug fixes, tweaks, and enhancements that improves overall performance of your theme. Update to the latest framework now!

Notes: If you encounter Builder layout issues, clear Builder cache

    Does this update also apply to the builder in Themify Flow?

    I have not yet upgraded to Framework 2.4.2. and will not be able do so until the new year. Does this replace that software? I see mention of 2.4.8 Do I still need to install 2.4.2 (or 2.4.8) before this? Or is Revamped Builder part of 2.4.8? Could you provide a current workflow diagram?

    Thanks

    Sounds great. I bought Builder very recently and have been experimenting on my development site before I go live. I think the concept is brilliant. I am being successful with some things and have great difficulty with others. How do I get the new version?

    What’s the best way to upgrade? I am using my Themify themes on a variety of different web sites and use the Builder features on a number of them. Do I just need to update the themes? or do I also need to update the Framework separately?

    I have found that when the Builder Cache feature is enabled, it prevents my site from loading completely for visitors who are NOT logged in but the site loads normally for logged in users. It breaks the styling of many pages and prevents certain page elements from loading. My site uses SSL on all pages in case that matters.

    I just spent a day narrowing down the problem to this feature. I have filed a ticket in which I have stated this as being the source of the problem. I’m hoping this will be resolved soon as I would rather leave Builder Cache enable for better speed. Thank you.

    Please can you make some new HOW TO basic videos because now that you have updated the site, the videos you have are outdated on how to use it.

    I don’t see the draggable vertical line that defines column width in the builder for Flatshop. Why is this builder not the same as the one I saw on the video of your site?

      Hi Andres,

      Apologies for the confusion. We’ve updated our Builder since that video was released. Not to worry, we’re looking to update our videos very soon. For now though, if you need any clarification with anything please don’t hesitate to contact us here – https://themify.me/contact and we’ll answer any questions you may have. Thank you for your patience.
