Q: What is Builderius?
A: Technically it is a plugin for WordPress. Functionally Builderius is a site builder that allows you to create templates for any posts, custom post types, regular pages, archives, “404 error” pages, etc.
Q: Does Builderius deactivate my theme?
A: No, Builderius does not deactivate your theme. The theme remains active and operational (if you want to put some custom code in functions.php etc). However, since Builderius is a site builder, it allows you to create and display custom templates, which is the “territory” of WP themes.
Q: Could I use Builderius for specific pages only and keep using my theme for the others?
A: Yes, absolutely! Builderius allows you to partially override your theme. CSS/JS assets added in the theme will not be loaded on the pages which display templates from Builderius. Practically, it means a smaller size of the pages and a “non-conflict” mode with your theme’s assets.
Q: What makes Builderius stand out of the crowd (other page builders, like Bricks, Oxygen, Beaver Builder, and so on)?
A: Builderius has full site editing capabilities. Moreover, it follows an even better concept that we call WIDE – WordPress Integrated Development Environment. It makes the process of creating a website convenient and flexible by implementing advanced development techniques. In particular, more granular control over templates and their usage on the site, built-in staging/production modes, full site theme-like export/import, included forms functionality, etc. They put a strong emphasis on dynamic data creation and usage inside the templates.
