6 Beaver Builder Tutorial Videos from our Awesome Community


Hope you're doing well! I just got back from an extended stay in the New Orleans so, despite have no association with the south, a “howdy” seems appropriate today.

There has been some really great video content coming out of the Beaver Builder community recently (have you seen our Facebook Group and Slack Channel), and we thought it would be fun to put together a blog post to share some of it.

Hopefully, these videos will introduce some new ideas and concepts, and or, inspire some inspiration on creative ways to use Beaver Builder. A few of these are rather long, so grab a bowl of popcorn or be sure to bookmark this page and come back when you have some time to kill…

Zero to Website with Beaver Builder

Kicking off the list is a video from our friend Joe at WP in One Month. We had the opportunity to sponsor a webinar with WP in One Month and Joe did an awesome job of it!

In this tutorial, Joe walks through the basic steps of going from nothing to a complete website with Beaver Builder. This is an excellent resource if you're new to Beaver Builder, and or, a great one to share with clients to get them ramped up on the software. Thanks, Joe!

New Landing Page Templates Walkthrough

This video comes from our buddy, Adam, from WPCrafter. Adam makes great screencast/walkthrough videos, and he made a video showing off all our new templates! If you missed it, we just announced the new templates coming out in our next update, 1.8 Gordon.

These templates are still in beta (you can download the beta release from your My Account page), but they'll be out in the wild very soon. Thanks, Adam!

Working with Beaver Builder's Responsive Layout Options

I'm tapping into all my synonyms for friends today…

David Waumsley is a very close acquaintance of ours, and he's been creating some spectacular tutorial videos as of late. In this video, he reviews some of our responsive settings options and explains a few tricks and techniques to optimize a Beaver Builder site for mobile devices.

Be sure to check out David's YouTube Channel for more great videos. Thanks, David.

Using the Chrome Inspector to Look Up Class Names

If you're familiar with our community, this next name needs no introduction! Jon Mather is the main-man behind Beaver Lodge, which is an extensions store for Beaver Builder.

In this video, Jon explores the subject of using the Chrome Web Inspector to look up CSS class names. This lesson is not specific to Beaver Builder, but if you're building websites, the Chrome Dev Tools panel is an invaluable resource. Thanks, Jon!

Using the Genesis Framework with Beaver Builder

Next up is a true Beaver Builder OG. Jon Perez of SureFire Web Services and Beaver Builder Videos was kind enough to invite me on to his podcast way back when and it was the first podcast I ever recorded.

Jon is long-time Genesis user/evangelist, and in this video, he discusses some techniques for using Beaver Builder with the Genesis Framework. Thanks, Jon!

How to Export Beaver Builder Templates To Another Site

Last, but certainly not least, I've been dancing around all the different terms for “friend” that I can think of, but this video was created by, arguably, the patriarch of the Beaver Builder family. Colin, from Dynamik Beaver, has been a long-time evangelist and mentor to the company. He has an honorary place in our internal Slack, and many of the features and strategies we've implemented in Beaver Builder came from his insight.

You may recognize Colin's voice as he recorded all of the videos featured in our Knowledge Base. In this video, Colin shows how to import/export Beaver Builder templates using the WordPress Importer plugin. In 1.8, this feature is actually getting a big overhaul. You'll soon be able to select individual templates to export. Woot! Thanks, Colin.

And that's a wrap! Thanks again to everyone out there creating content and taking the time to put these tutorials together. I know I missed a few good ones, so maybe we'll make this a regular series.

If you've made or know of a great Beaver Builder or general web design tutorial video, feel free to leave it in the comments. Let us know if you have any questions. Until next time. 🙂

    With so many clever folks doing videos I’m over joyed and gobsmacked (I think a British term) to get included. Thank you.

    • Robby McCullough on May 13, 2016 at 12:19 pm

      Keep ’em up! You’re doing a great job on those vids. 🙂

  3. Colin on May 12, 2016 at 3:57 am

    Thanks for your warm words Robby:-) I feel very honoured to be included on a list with such awesome people.

    Thanks also for taking me back to the beginning. I remember all those early chats and brainstorming sessions with much fondness. Who knew that 3 guys who had just changed the name of their little plugin to Beaver Builder would go on to create such a life changing plugin. Yes, I said life changing! Mainly because the daily lives of many people would be a bit of a drag and not nearly as much fun without Beaver Builder. You, Justin and Billy definitely changed my life for the better, that’s for sure!

    Just wanted to take this opportunity to also thank Adam, Joe, David, Jon M. and Jon P. for sharing some of their knowledge and ultimately getting out of their comfort zone to record it. I know it can be hard to put yourself out there, so kudos to you guys for “just effing doing it!”

    Last, but not least, I want to say a big thanks to the three of you for being amazing friends and just down-right remarkable people. I love you guys!

    P.S. You are truly inspirational Robby! As you know, I had to step away from the Dynamik Beaver to concentrate on some other things, but reading your posts always gives me a burning desire to go back in to record some more tutorials and write some more posts. I’m not going to promise anything, but if I do, You’ll be the first to know.

      Colin, after Robby’s patriarch comment can I now call you Daddy Beaver?. I think I may have just creeped myself out with that one.

      Really nice words. Definitely out of my comfort zone, but thankfully the Beavers are a supportive bunch.

      There’s so many good folks now writing and talking about Beaver Builder, but your stuff has always been easy for me to digest and useful. Please do something if you can without putting yourself under pressure.

      • Colin on May 12, 2016 at 1:15 pm

        You’re way too kind, David:-)

        Although I really appreciate the honourable (that’s “honorable” for all our American friends out there) title bestowed by you, I think “Daddy Beaver” is maybe a little misleading. After all, I wasn’t actually there for the conception, or birth of the little Beaver!

        Maybe “Uncle Beaver” is more appropriate?

        Before I go and watch all of these awesome videos again, I just want to say that I think the Beaver Builder community is the most amazing group of people I’ve been involved in. There are so many good people contributing their own time and energy to help others and make Beaver Builder better for everyone. It’s really awesome to be part of such a knowledgeable, spirited and caring group!

        • Robby McCullough on May 13, 2016 at 12:19 pm

          Lmao! Uncle Beaver works, too. Thanks, Colin! <3

    So what am I, chopped liver? LOL 😉

    • Justin Busa on June 30, 2016 at 11:08 am

      Of course not! 🙂 Thanks for all of your contributions. We’ll make sure to get you in the next one!
