Can't find the Beaver Builder menu in the admin panel

If you don't see Beaver Builder (as of Version 2.1) or Builder (prior to Version 2.1) as a menu choice in the WordPress admin panel, it means that it is disabled.

The Beaver Builder menu in the WordPress admin panel lets you create, edit, and delete custom layout templates and saved rows, columns (as of Version 2.1), and modules just as you would any standard post or page. You can also add categories to organize your templates, rows, and modules.

Note: The Themer layouts option only appears when you have the Beaver Builder - Themer Add-On plugin installed.

To enable the Builder menu:

  1. On the WordPress admin panel, click Settings > Beaver Builder (or Settings > Page Builder prior to Version 2.1) then click the User access tab.
  2. In the Admin section, go to the Builder admin field and select the user roles that you want to be able to see and access the Beaver Builder menu in the WordPress admin panel.
  3. Click Save user access settings.
