Russell has been busy and has created a new WordPress plugin specifically for Genesis users. It’s now ready.
The New Plugin Is Called …
What Does Genesis Dambuster Do For Me?
It allows you to easily break out of the constraints placed by your Genesis child theme so that you can build stunning landing pages either with a page builder like Beaver Builder, or by hand using HTML and CSS.
What On Earth Is Beaver Builder?
Beaver Builder is a premium page builder plugin. It’s very popular and although the people who built it didn’t create it for Genesis (it works with any theme), many Genesis users just love it. Genesis used in conjunction with Beaver Builder is a great combination.
Why Use Beaver Builder With Genesis?
Using both products gives you the best in class for both theme and page builder. Genesis is framework with a great collection of robust WordPress child theme. Beaver Builder is a quality page builder. Beaver Builder also helps you to create stunning landing pages (sales pages, optin pages, home pages, pricing pages and so on).
But If I Already Use Genesis, Do I Really Need A Page Builder Plugin ?
Well, that’s up to you! I still think you benefit from learning to work with HTML and CSS, but if you’d also like the ease of use of a page builder, Beaver Builder Standard is defintely the one to go for with Genesis.
Which Version of Beaver Builder Should I Get?
There are several versions available. The lite version is free, but it doesn’t do much. For example it won’t help you to build fancy landing pages and sales pages.
To get the real benefit of Beaver Builder with Genesis, you must get the Standard version. Together with Genesis you can use this to create stunning landing pages and sales pages in a few minutes.
So What Problem Does The New Dambuster Plugin Solve?
The problem with using the Beaver Builder plugin with Genesis is that it requires you to make code modifications to your site’s theme files to make Genesis work with Beaver Builder. The code you have to add may be different for different themes.
This can get tedious as you have to go looking on the internet for someone to tell you what is required in the case of each theme.
If you use our new Genesis Dambuster plugin, this problem goes away and Beaver Builder should work out of the box.
What If Genesis Dambuster Doesn’t Work For Me?
If Genesis Dambuster doesn’t work for and your theme and your theme is a standard StudioPress child theme, you just have to let us know which theme it is and we’ll get that working.
If your Genesis child theme is a 3rd party theme we’ll ask you to buy support to have us add that theme into the mix.
Does Genesis Dambuster Have Any Other Benefits?
Yes! If you’re like me and prefer not to use a page builder very often, if at all, then I can demonstrate how to use simple HTML and CSS plus the Genesis Dambuster plugin to make stunning hand-crafted sales pages or any other landing pages, without an additional page builder plugin.
This is especially true if you already use our Genesis Club Pro plugin. If you are Genesis user ands you don’t yet use that plugin you’re missing out.
The bottom line is that Genesis Dambuster is good for all types of Genesis user, experienced ones who are happy with HTML and CSS and those that need page builders too.
How Much Will The Plugin Cost?
The plugin is free but if you want support from us other than for bugs reporting, that will be a paid option.
