    custom panel page screenshot

Step 2) Using the Builder to construct the page content and layout:

  • From top WP Admin bar: select Themify Builder > Turn On Builder
    • Note: If you're not sure where or what a row or module is, refer here for details and to see a screenshot
  • Now you can drop any module on the page to construct the layout
  • Here are some basic Builder tips:
    • To start, drag & drop a module on the Builder grid.
    • Working with rows/columns:
      • To split the fullwidth row to multiple columns: hover on the right edge of the row (you will see a blue vertical bar) and drag towards the left to create different number of columns (ie. dragging to the most left will create 4-column).
      • Dragging the column dividers left/right can rearrange the column span/width.
      • Dragging the top bar of the row up/down can reposition the row
    • Each row can be styled differently:
      • To style the row: hover on the row menu icon (located on the upper left corner of the row) and select "Options"
      • Row background can be customized with background color, background image (either repeat, parallax scrolling, or fullcover), image slider, or a background video loop
      • Use padding or margin to control the spacing between rows (padding = spacing inside the row and margin = spacing outside the row)
      • When specifying the font, color, and link color in row styling, it will effect the appearance of all modules dropped in the row
    • Each module can be styled individually as well:
      • To style the module: double-click on the module to bring up the module option lightbox, then click on "Styling" tab
      • When specifying module styling, it will effect the individual module
    • You can export the Builder layout from the top Admin bar > Themify Builder > Import/Export > Export (it will prompt you to download a zip file which you may import to any post/page using the Import option)

The video below shows how to use the Builder such as dropping modules, controlling the grid, etc.:

FYI: There are more features available in the Builder. Please refer to the Builder documentation for more info.

ScrollTo Row Anchor

To achieve scrollTo row anchor:

  • First enter the Row Anchor name in Builder > Row > Options (e.g. "portfolio")

    this is builder row anchor screenshot
  • Then in the WordPress menu link (WP Admin > Appearance > Menu), insert the anchor name as link URL = "#portfolio" (basically add # in front of the anchor name)

    screenshot
  • When the #portfolio link is clicked or when users go the URL with the #portfolio anchor (eg. http://yoursite.com#portfolio), it will scroll to the row where it specified Row Anchor = "portfolio"

Full Height Builder Row

Full height row will set the height of the row in 100% viewport height and the row content will automatically align in the middle vertically.

To set full height row in Builder:

  • With the Builder turned on > Row > Options
  • Select Row Height = "Fullheight (100% viewport height)"
