I am using Beaver Builder + Beaver Themer.

Even though, Beaver Themer allows me to build archive pages, but it doesn't allow complete customization of posts query filter. And for that, I trust Toolset which allows complete customization on how & which posts are displayed.

The problem is that I am more comfortable designing pages & templates using Beaver Builder than the WordPress Blocks.

I have designed an archive template in Beaver Themer but don't know how to include WordPress Archive page designed in Toolset.

There is an article on "Using Toolset with Beaver Builder in WordPress" (https://toolset.com/course-lesson/using-toolset-with-beaver-builder/) but it does not specifically mention on how I can use Toolset to design archive pages in Beaver Builder.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us and I'd be happy to assist.

If your goal is to use the WordPress Archive editor from Toolset, but design the output of its content using the Beaver Builder, you can follow these steps:

1. Please make sure that the "Show both the legacy and Blocks interface and let me choose which to use for each item I build" option is selected for the "Editing experience" at WP Admin -> Toolset -> Settings -> General.

2. On the same settings page, also select "Classic Editor" for the "WordPress Archives".

3. Next, when you'll create a new WordPress Archive, you'll see that it will use the Toolset's classic editor environment. From the content template selection, you'll be able to select the Beaver Builder to design the template.

I hope this helps and let me know if you need any further assistance around this.

regards,
Waqar

Hi,

I tried out as per your instructions, but this is a lot more complex process than the Blocks interface.

I was under the impressions that I can start designing the archive template right inside Beaver Themer. If that was the case, it would have been very easy.

Maybe the development team should consider this option as well.

Thanks.
