  1. Be sure that you have the Beaver Builder Plugin installed and activated.

  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress


Can I install this plugin without Beaver Builder?

Yes, but it won’t do anything. This plugin is an extension to Beaver Builder. Be aware that some modules require the paid version of Beaver Builder and some modules require Beaver Builder 2.0+.

What about browsers?

CB Custom Modules uses some modern CSS specs like Flexbox and animations. Modules will all work, but with older versions of IE you might see a less-refined version.

Are these modules responsive?

Yes. Some modules maintain their same behavior on mobile, but modules that rely on hover effects provide an experience tailored to touch screens.

Is this plugin open source?

Yes. Feel free to use and adapt as needed. Or reach out to me with any feature requests.

For the scout module, how do I make the page scroll to another part of the page?

  1. Find the row or element you want to scroll to, find the Advanced Settings tab, give that element a unique id such as gallery.
  2. When you add your link to the module, the link field would need to be #gallery. The plugins do the rest.

The Beaver Builder team also has a great breakdown of this technique with screenshots.

Can I get a custom module made for me or my client?

Of course! Visit our website to learn more about requesting a custom module.

Does CB Custom Modules work with Beaver Themer?

Yes! Most modules have Beaver Field Connections where appropriate.

The plugin is really good, specially the scout feature which no other main plugins are developing. Really appreciate the developer and I hope the plugin is updated to every Wordpress update.
