Toolset allows you to build advanced websites without PHP programming. It is integrated with Beaver Builder and enables you to easily add custom search to your pages, display content on a Google Map, and much more.
Examples of what you can do with Beaver Builder and Toolset
Build custom searches without coding
Display content as markers on Google Maps
Create forms for front-end content editing
And, a lot more. Let’s get started!
Currently Toolset supports using Beaver Builder to create Content Templates applied to Post Loops. You should not use Beaver Builder to create Content Templates for User Loops or Taxonomy Loops.
To start with Toolset and Beaver Builder, make sure you have the following plugins installed and activated on your website:
- Beaver Builder – as a standalone plugin or bundled with a Theme.
- Types – allows you to create custom post types, custom fields, and custom taxonomies.
- Views – helps you display lists of your content and archives on the front-end, including custom searches for your visitors.
- Forms – enables users to submit content via front-end forms, registration forms, and login/logout forms.
- Access – allows you to add custom user roles and to control the access to content on the front-end for each user role.
- Maps – allows you to display your content on Google Maps.
- WooCommerce Views – helps you design product templates and much more.
- Other Toolset components, according to your project.
Toolset also features its own builder plugin called Layouts. However, when using Toolset with Beaver Builder, we recommend not activating Layouts and using Beaver Builder instead.
Adding custom types, field taxonomies, and fields with Toolset
Toolset allows you to expand your site by creating and displaying custom content. Before building any advanced features, you need to create and organize the content of your site. This includes creating custom post types (like “Tours” or “Events”), adding custom fields to them (like “Price of the Tour” or “Event Date”), and finally, creating custom taxonomies (like “Type of Tours”) to categorize the content. The steps to create all the custom elements mentioned above are the same for all themes or page builders.
