Builder Widget

Experience the full power of the YOOtheme Pro page builder. Publish the builder widget in the top or bottom positions and create sophisticated layouts with unlimited sections above and below the main content.

Builder Widget

The builder widget is a regular WordPress widget and needs to be published in the top or bottom area through the WordPress widget manager. This is because the YOOtheme Pro page builder allows you to create full-width sections, which only works in these two positions. Otherwise, an error message will appear.

Note The layout settings in Layout → Top and Layout → Bottom are ignored by the builder widget because it allows you to create multiple sections which each has its own settings.

Builder widget example

Open the Builder

In the builder widget settings there is an Open Builder button, which opens the YOOtheme Pro page builder.

Builder Positions 1 to 6

There are six builder-1 to builder-6 areas which are not rendered anywhere else in the theme. They are reserved to be used by the Area element from the page builder. Learn more about the advanced layout techniques.


Advanced Layout Techniques

If the created layout in the builder widget has no output, it will automatically collapse, and the rest of the page will adapt accordingly. This is very powerful in combination with the Widget and Area elements from the YOOtheme Pro element library. They behave the same and collapse if they don't have any content output.

Collapsing layout

For example, you can create a complete layout using Area elements. The layout will be only rendered if there are widgets published on selected areas. Otherwise, it will completely collapse. Widget page assignment and user permission are also taken into account.
