Generate: Page Builders Integration: BeTheme / BeBuilder

This guide refers to basic usage of Page Generator Pro with BeTheme’s BeBuilder (formerly called Muffin Page Builder).  It is not a substitute for referring to the Generate: Content Documentation, which must be read first to understand all Content Group configuration options.

Prerequisites

Older versions may work, however the steps below may not reflect the available functionality.

Setup

Failure to follow all steps in this section may result in incorrect working functionality.

Before using BeTheme’s BeBuilder in your Content Group, you’ll need to:

  • Navigate to BeTheme > Theme Options
    Page Generator Pro: BeTheme: Menu
  • Click the Global > Advanced menu item in the left hand sidebar:
    Page Generator Pro: BeTheme: Submenu
  • Scroll down to the Advanced header
  • Builder | Data Storage must be set to Serialized | Readable Format, required by some Plugins
    Page Generator Pro: BeTheme: Settings: Data Storage
  • Click the Save Changes button

Add a Content Group

To add a new Content Group to Page Generator Pro, click the Add New button below the Content Groups title, which can be found towards the top of the screen:
Page Generator Pro: Generate Content:

You will then be presented with a screen similar to the one used to edit your WordPress Posts and Pages.

It’s recommended that you first:

Once saved, either:

  • Click the Edit with BeBuilder button to use the distraction-free BeBuilder editor
    Page Generator Pro: BeTheme: Edit with BeBuilder Button
  • Scroll down to the Page Options section to use BeBuilder
    Page Generator Pro: BeTheme: Edit Inline

Additional BeTheme options (such as Header & Footer, Sidebars, SEO) can be found below the Page Options section.

Edit a Content Group

To edit an existing Content Group in Page Generator Pro, click the Title of the Group that you want to edit:
Page Generator Pro: Generate: Group Actions

Either:

  • Click the Edit with BeBuilder button to use the distraction-free BeBuilder editor
    Page Generator Pro: BeTheme: Edit with BeBuilder Button
  • Scroll down to the Page Options section to use BeBuilder
    Page Generator Pro: BeTheme: Edit Inline

Dynamic Elements

Dynamic Element buttons are not available in BeTheme 26.x and higher, due to a change in how BeTheme registers the Classic Editor / TinyMCE.  You’ll need to manually build shortcodes for Dynamic Elements.

Muffin Builder’s Visual Editor Module uses the Classic Editor / TinyMCE, therefore allowing you to build each Dynamic Element’s shortcode using the UI:
Page Generator Pro: Generate: Content: Muffin Page Builder: Visual Editor Module

How to do this can be found in the Adding: Classic Editor / TinyMCE section of each of the Documentation links below:

For other Muffin Builder modules (or for BeTheme 26.x and higher), you’ll need to manually build each Dynamic Element’s shortcode using the documented parameters.  These can be found in the Adding: Page Builders section of each of the Documentation links below:
