This guide presents an introduction to basic Builder concepts and terms, as well as a beginner’s overview on using Builder for the first time. We’ll walk step-by-step through installing and activating the Builder theme, as well as creating your first page Layout and View with Builder.
Here’s a quick preview of the contents:
- Basic Builder Concepts (Builder-specific “vocabulary” words or terminology like Layouts, Views, Modules and Style Manager)
- Getting Started (Installing, activating and configuring Builder settings)
- Your Site’s Blueprint: Creating Your First Layout (Referencing Builder’s packaged Layouts, building a Layout from scratch and adding Modules)
- Exploring Views: Using Different Layouts for Different Parts of the Site (Using Builder’s Views feature to assign specific Layouts to different parts of your site, such as the home page, archives and more)
We plan to release more Builder-related eBooks in the near future (like a Style Manager handbook), so be on the lookout for more iThemes eBooks.
