Using Toolset with Beaver Builder

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.

To avoid compatibility issues you shouldn’t mix Beaver Builder and Toolset elements on the same page. This will ensure that all the features keep working in the future.

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.

Installing Toolset

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 typescustom fields, and custom taxonomies.
  • Blocks – 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 Blocks – helps you design product templates and much more.
  • Other Toolset components, according to your project.

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. To learn more about how to do this, please visit our course chapter on creating custom post types, fields, and taxonomies.
