Builder's Extensions extend or override the structure and/or style of a Buider Child Theme by providing additional code that can change the content, add additional features or modify the styling of the Layout. Extensions are applied to either a Layout or a View.

Builder's Default Extensions

Builder ships with 6 Extensions designed for displaying a listing of entries like a posts page, Category page or an archive, including:

  • Featured Image Grid & Showcase – Displays the featured image in a grid layout with colorbox popup
  • Featured Image Slider – Displays the featured image and post title of first 6 posts in a custom slider and the featured image, post title and excerpt for the remaining posts
  • Magazine Layout – Displays the featured image, post title and content excerpt in a grid layout
  • Portfolio Layout – Displays the featured image and post title in a grid layout
  • Teasers Layout – Image Left – Displays the featured image (floating left), post title, post meta and excerpt as teasers
  • Teasers Layout – Image Right – Displays the featured image (floating right), post title, post meta and excerpt as teasers.
