Style Manager Formats: Responsive vs. Non-Responsive

Style Manager supports two different formats: a format for the newer, responsive-ready child themes and a format for the older, non-responsive child themes. These formats are not compatible with one another, meaning that you will only have access to the Styles that are usable by your current child theme.

If you are running a responsive-ready child theme, a notice will appear after installing Style Manager with a list of Styles created in this format. Any Styles in the other format still exist and can still be used if you switch back to a non-responsive child theme.



  1. Download the Builder Style Manager - Beta plugin from iThemes Member Panel.
  2. From the WordPress dashboard, navigate to Plugins > Add New.
  3. Install and Activate the builder-style-manager zip file.

Once Builder Audio Block has been installed, you'll notice a new menu item has been added to the My Theme left-hand navigation of your WordPress dashboard for Style Manager.
