Birthdays are important! There's plenty of holidays, but there's only one day that can truly be considered a celebration of you: your birthday. On that note, Billy Young (our operations extraordinaire and ever-charming support forum guru) is celebrating his birthday this week! Happy Birthday, Billy! Don't worry, we'll do our best to keep up with support issues and questions despite the high likelihood of a raging office party! 😎
Beaver Builder was released in April 2014 and we're quickly approaching our first Birthday! Many people have been asking us whether or not we'll offer a renewal discount and, up until now, we didn't have an answer.
Well, we're excited to announce that we will offer a renewal discount of 40% on all Beaver Builder packages!
The only stipulation is that you will need to renew within two weeks of your license expiring. We had many reasons to adopt a renewal discount, but one of the biggies was to give back to everyone who supported us with their business. We're in this for the long-haul and we hope you will be too!
Beaver Builder Update
In other news, we released a minor update that addressed a few bugs and added a couple of sweet new features.
Header-less/Footer-less pages are here!
First, a much-requested header-less/footer-less page template is now available in the Beaver Builder theme. This will allow anyone to create one-off pages without a header/footer. This also means you can design the entire content of the page using Beaver Builder. We're looking forward to seeing what kind of cool pages everyone will build with this!
Color Overlay for Background Images/Videos
Our good friend Diego de Oliveira submitted a feature that allows you to specify a translucent color overlay for your row background images (a bit like the featured image for this post). This is becoming a very common design trend. Being able to tweak/change an overlay color in real time, and in the context of your page, is extremely useful.
Also in this update, we added a notification when switching between Beaver Builder's page builder and the WordPress editor and we made a few under-the-hood tweaks to improve the Beaver Builder theme's SEO.
Thanks @ UpThemes!
Lastly, we're extremely flattered and grateful that our friends at UpThemes have adopted Beaver Builder as their go to page builder. We've had an eye on the awesome work the gang is doing over there for a long time. UpThemes creates beautiful, and very well-made, WordPress themes for a variety of niches. If, for whatever reason, the Beaver Build theme doesn't quite fit your needs, we highly recommend checking out UpTheme's offerings.
