Enable or Disable Beaver Builder While Importing Starter Templates

You can select the page builders you want to use with Starter Templates and skip the ones you don’t need.

You can also decide if a particular page builder shows up in the dropdown or not. This dropdown is displayed while importing classic starter templates.

You can do this by turning them on or off in your WordPress settings or using a quick filter in your functions.php file.

This article will walk you through both of these incredibly simple methods.

Let’s begin!

How to Enable/Disable Beaver Builder From Your WordPress Dashboard

Head over to your WordPress dashboard and follow these steps:

  • Navigate to Settings > General.
  • Check the box next to the “Disable Beaver Page Builder Templates in Starter Templates”
  • Click on the Save Changes button to apply these changes.

The Beaver Builder option will now disappear from the page builder dropdown.

Disabling Beaver Builder Using WordPress Filters

Note: It’s advisable not to edit the functions.php in the parent theme directly. If you prefer to modify the functions.php file directly, it’s recommended to do so on the child theme.

Alternatively, you can disable the Beaver Builder dropdown option using WordPress filters.

Simply add the following filter to your functions.php file located at Appearance > Theme File Editor > functions.php:

update_option( 'st-beaver-builder-flag', 1 );

Check out this article for information on adding custom code to your WordPress sites.

If you don’t want to tamper with your functions.php file, consider using free plugins like Code Snippets to add the above filter.

Previewing Your Changes

Check if these changes were applied successfully in your Starter Templates plugin.

To do this, go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and click on the “See Library” option under your Starter Templates plugin.

Move on to the next steps until you see this screen. Click on the page builder dropdown:

As you can see, there are only three options here and the option for Beaver Builder is no longer visible.

If you want to make Beaver Builder visible again in the dropdown, just remove the check next to the “Disable Beaver Builder Page Builder Templates in Starter Templates” or remove the above filter.

That’s it! If you face any issues enabling or disabling the Beaver Builder dropdown, please reach out to us. We’re always here to help!
