Get Started With PowerPack Beaver Addons for Beaver Builder (In 3 Steps)
If you're ready to dive into this plugin, you can follow these three steps to get started.
Step 1: Purchase, Install, and Activate the Plugin
The first step: do a quick setup. Start by choosing your pricing plan. There are three options available: the WooPack, the PowerPack, and the Combo.
The $59 per year WooPack provides modules that serve ecommerce needs. These include features like the Product Grid module for dynamic displays, as well as the Add to Cart module, which helps to speed along purchases. You can also white label the plugin and use it on an unlimited number of sites.
To get modules that are not focused on WooCommerce, opt for the $69/year PowerPack. This option gives you access to over 65 modules, more than 350 templates, and a cloud-based template library.
If both tiers sound good to you, you can opt for the Combo plan for $99 per year. This includes all features from both options. All plans include a full year of support and updates.
After you've chosen your plan, download the plugin. Be sure to grab your license key too. Then go to your WordPress dashboard and navigate to Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin:
Choose the plugin's zip file and click Install Now. After the plugin is installed, activate your license. Since this is required for important updates, it's best to do it right away.
Navigate to Settings > PowerPack and enter your license key, then click Activate License:
When you're done, remember to click Save Changes. Your plugin is now activated and ready to use.
Step 2: Start Building Your First Page
We'll begin with a template sourced from the plugin's expansive library. Choosing one of these templates will give you stunning designs to start with. You can then customize it as needed.
First, go to Settings > PowerPack. Switch over to the Templates tab:
If you hover over a template, an option appears to preview the design. The preview is helpful if you want to get an idea of what the template looks like on a full screen. Browse around to find your favorite template, then click the corresponding blue Activate button.
Then add the template to the intended page. Launch Beaver Builder on the page you want to edit, either from Pages > All pages in the WordPress admin panel or from the WordPress admin bar at the top of the page. On the right side of the screen, click the Plus icon to access the Content panel and go to the Templates tab:
In the Group drop-down menu, choose PowerPack Layouts to display the PowerPack templates:
Click to add your template of choice. A pop-up asks if you want to replace the current layout or append the new choice to an existing layout. Select your preferred option.
Here's an example of a template selected from the plugin's library:
You can modify the template in any way you like: add or delete modules, move things around, change the settings.
Here’s how to add a PowerPack Beaver Addons module to your layout. Open the Content panel again and click the Modules tab. In the Group dropdown, choose PowerPack Modules:
For this example, we’re using the Price Table module. Drag and drop the module anywhere on your page. The module’s Settings panel opens after you’ve dropped the module.
Modify the module settings as necessary. Remember to click Save when you're done.
Step 3: Enhance Your Site With Advanced Features
Now we can move on to the more advanced features of the plugin. These options can help you further personalize your site.
We'll start with white labeling, which is a feature that can help you project a professional image. From your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Settings > PowerPack > White Label:
Here, you can adjust the fields to change what your clients will see. We recommend adding your name and URL to the program. This will make it easy for clients to spread your work or contact you if they need to.
Next, we'll take a look at the global settings. Changing these will affect default traits such as content width, margins, and padding. This can be useful if you routinely use resources that are far above or below the default sizes.
To access these settings, go to any page being edited with the Beaver Builder. In the top left, click on Currently Editing Page, and scroll down to find the Global Settings option:
Add your preferred defaults. Note that these settings change the defaults throughout the Beaver Builder editor You can override the defaults by changing settings for individual rows, columns, and modules.
Finally, you can disable specific modules so they don’t appear in the Content panel. Doing so can speed up your site slightly and optimize your experience. From your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Settings > Beaver Builder > Modules. Scroll down to find the specific options related to the PowerPack Beaver Addons:
Remove the checkmark from any of the options you don't want and save your work. If you change your mind, you can always come back and check the appropriate boxes.
Our Beaver Builder plugin is a very efficient tool. However, that doesn't mean that the plugin can't get even better. With the help of PowerPack Beaver Addons, you can further customize your site and add new features to your pages.
