This video features a great free plugin from Jay Ovens-Henig that allows us to easily add Beaver Builder templates to the Beaver Builder theme’s header and footer areas. It also adds back the correct header and footer HTML and Schema.org mark-up when the theme’s headers and footers are removed.
Notes on this Video
The Headers and Footers Templates plugin is available here.
Answers to a few queries :
- You can still use the Beaver Builder “Fixed header” that appears on page scroll but only the “Fade In” option. (Customise > Header > Header Layout > Fixed Header > Fade In )
- You can use the Beaver Builder Menu module (under Advanced Modules) to recreate the WordPress navigation in a saved row template. (It does not have the Navigation schema markup like the native Beaver Builder header does, but I personally think this small loss is not worth worrying about).
- This plugin applies a global header/footer across all pages and posts. It does not allow conditions to be set. (Update: Beaver Tunnels does allow great flexibility with “conditionals” and presently a way to add markup to it is being worked on – see note below.)
Update: I am presently testing something from the Beaver Tunnels guys that will allow the Schema to be added to that too.
