    Beaver Themer addon for the Beaver Builder plugin extends “drag and drop” page building experience for layouts considered “impossible till now”. Beaver Themer helps you build custom layouts for: headers, footer, blog post design, archive pages, templates for showing custom fields data – using familiar (and amazing) drag and drop experience offered by the Beaver Builder plugin.

    7. What is the use of Beaver Themer addon

    Using Beaver Themer you can build single blog post layout using simple drag and drop of elements. You can also build custom design header and footer layouts in your WordPress theme.

    9. Can Beaver Themer also work with Pods

      Very good article! With the launch of Themer (discounted 25%) and the renewal fee additionally discounted 40%, it makes sense to buy this plugin as soon as it’s released as opposed to waiting.

      Themer really expands the capabilities of the Beaver Builder Theme/Plugin combo (as well as the Beaver Builder plugin + GeneratePress or Genesis combination). For a front end developer, it’s like adding a new superpower to your existing skill set. For a back end developer, it should be a big time savor.

        Jim, glad you like the article.

        Yep, 25% off is a good offer to let go. However, what I understand 40% renewals would apply to the original price.

        And yes, themer does pack a punch !

      Okay, so the header and footer improvements have gotten a lot of attention (which it should), but I have what might be a silly question. One of the limitations of BB is that if you edit the template/appearance you want for site pages you’re stuck going through each site page individually to apply the changes (or append the template and move content around into the new format).

      Am I understanding correctly that the new theme layout options allow you to set a general site page layout AND that if you later edited that layout it would automatically update across all of the general site pages (the ones set to the same category at least)? That would be a HUGE time saver if so, but after reading articles and watching the preview video several times I’m still not clear if Beaver Themer will provide that or not.

      • Davinder Singh Kainth on May 8, 2017 at 6:53 pm

        Exactly… say you create a “header” template and set it as website header. You would edit that at one place and changes would appear automatically throughout the website.

        Also, using conditional settings that Beaver Themer provides – you can set different header layouts for different posts, categories or custom post types.

      HeadwayThemes and BloxThemes (fork of Headway) provide similar features to Themer. But, I believe Themer will become more flexible than Blox over time due to the popularity of Beaver.

      • Davinder Singh Kainth on May 9, 2017 at 2:06 am

        And Themer should have more appeal being a part of flourishing Beaver Builder ecosystem.

      Says $110 but hit the buy button and it says $147?

      • Davinder Singh Kainth on May 9, 2017 at 2:06 am

        Please check in few hours. Technically offer launch is on May 09, 2017 !

        • T Carson on May 9, 2017 at 12:37 pm

          Thanks for the info

      How far would this go to replace the functionality of wp-types and wp-views?

      • Davinder Singh Kainth on June 9, 2017 at 1:39 pm

        Themer can replace “Views”. However, you would still need “types” or any other comparable plugin to register custom data fields.
