How to Create Hero Images with Beaver Builder

This is a guide to creating hero images with Beaver Builder.

Hero images (and hero sections more broadly) are the large, “full-bleed” sections you see at the top of website homepages and landing pages. They usually include a call-to-action that directs the user’s attention to the most desired action—”Hire Me,” “Get Quote,” and so on.

Building hero images and hero sections in Beaver Builder is really a function of knowing how to use both Beaver Builder Rows and Modules. Here’s the video guide:

And here’s a text summary:

How to Make Hero Images with Beaver Builder

  1. Work on a page template that lets you edit all the way to the edge of the screen. (If you don’t have one available, we’ll put together a future guide for finding or creating these page templates, so stay tuned.)
  2. Create a “Full-Width” Beaver Builder Row. Make sure the row has no outer margins.
  3. Give the row a background: image, video, and so on. You can also overlay semitransparent colors onto the background media.
  4. Give the row top and bottom padding to get the height you’re looking for. You will likely want to set separate padding amounts for desktop, tablet, and mobile.
  5. Create a Beaver Builder Module within the row. Its height and padding will also help control the height of the hero image. You can use a combination of the Header, Text, and Button modules for most hero images.

    Hey Fred! You’re absolutely right. I’ve tried several page builders and by so far, the one from Beaver Builder is the best option for WordPress at the present moment. Robby & the crew did an excellent job with it. 🙂

  • It’s wasn’t obvious to me that clicking on the screen type icon would switch the margin and padding settings. Super helpful. Thank you!
