Known Page Builder incompatibilities

We try our very best to make Page Builder compatible with everything you throw at it, but sometimes there’s nothing we can do. Things change rapidly, so if you want to give these plugins and themes a try anyway, let us know if the developer made them compatible with Page Builder.

Here's a list of items that are currently incompatible with Page Builder. 


Advanced Custom Fields (Extra Widget Fields only)

Any additional fields added to widgets using ACF will not show up in the builder interface.

Google Maps Bank (Shortcodes only)

Uses document.write to render shortcodes. Everything else about this plugin should be fine.

Jetpack (Gallery Widget and VideoPress)

The settings panel for Jetpack’s gallery widget doesn’t fully load in the builder because it is only coded to load in wp-admin/widgets.php and wp-admin/customizer.php. VideoPress calls admin-only code that breaks the media uploader on the front-end.

Post video players, slideshow albums, photo galleries and music / podcast playlist

Incorrectly loads in jQuery causing a second version to be loaded which breaks many scripts on the page, including Beaver Builder scripts.

Schema Creator by Raven

Currently coded to only work in wp-admin.

WPFront Notification Bar

Issue posted on their support forums with no reply.


In certain cases, this plugin can leave thousands of rows of orphaned post meta (bloating your database) because it has issues with deleting post meta for revisions. There is a ticket for this issue that you can follow on GitHub.

Yoast SEO (clean permalinks feature)

When the clean permalinks feature is enabled on the Yoast SEO settings Advanced tab, Page Builder will not load. For information about how to disable this feature, see the  Yoast knowledge base.


Tesseract Theme

Tesseract appears to have dropped support for Beaver Builder and taken away the templates they were originally offering. As an alternative we recommend either the Beaver Builder Theme or any alternative theme known to integrate well with Page Builder, such as GeneratePress.

Cherry Framework

There are multiple incompatibilities, depending on the Cherry Framework theme being used. Of many issues, the one that cannot be fixed by Beaver Builder is a hardcoded script in header.php that interferes with Page Builder functions such as opening module settings.

Blox Theme

Blox Theme is a fork of Headway. In recent releases, smooth scrolling in Page Builder does not work. Version 1.01 of the theme is known to be compatible with smooth scrolling.


CloudFlare’s Rocket Loader

This CloudFlare feature can interfere with Beaver Builder when building sites, but it’s fine to turn it on after a site is finished.


document.write (JavaScript)

Anything that uses document.write will break the Page Builder interface because Page Builder content is loaded via AJAX when you make updates. Calling document.write after the page loads will cause it to overwrite all of the page content with the content passed to document.write.
