Beaver Builder is my favorite WordPress page builder by a mile, and it becomes significantly more powerful if you know CSS. This video guide quickly walks you through efficiently adding CSS styles to Beaver Builder elements—both modules, and the HTML elements inside those modules.


Wallace Inline: Inline Text and Image Editing for Beaver Builder

Wallace Inline is a new premium extension for Beaver Builder that caught my eye while I was browsing around today. It makes text and image editing very quick and intuitive on a website front-end: rather than coming up inside Beaver Builder’s text editor, text is simply editable inline—hence the name—so you simply start typing, and your text content changes. (If the difference between “front-end” and “inline” confuses you as much as it did me, there’s a good Live Demo feature on their sales page that lets you try the extension for yourself.)

Given how helpful a good WordPress layout builder is, that feels a bit like saying it’s the first working teleporter—a big deal.



Stop the Presses: Gutenberg is What WordPress Needs, but It Doesn’t Go Nearly Far Enough

Update December 5, 2017: We have published a new look at Gutenberg, reflecting the plugin’s state several months after these impressions.

“Everyone’s a critic,” as the saying goes, and nowhere more so than around Gutenberg, the upcoming content editor overhaul slated for WordPress 5.0. Gutenberg has been the subject of soaring vision statements, angst-filled comments sections, and dozens (hundreds?) of cautiously-optimistic-to-mixed-to-confused-to-skeptical-to-concerned reviews.



Beaver Builder Review: A WordPress Developer’s Perspective

This Beaver Builder review is not paid by, commissioned by, or in any way associated with Beaver Builder. This is my honest opinion as a WordPress professional, who builds websites for clients for a living. Affiliate links are in place, but this post was written to inform, rather than to sell. Enjoy!

A while ago, I wrote about Squarespace. Specifically, I wrote about how good Squarespace is getting: for very simple projects with very few custom feature needs, I found that Squarespace is probably a better choice than WordPress.
