I am considering purchasing one of the extensive packages that ithemes has.

If I buy builder and want to customize any coding is that option allowed?

Is the builder platform designed to use ONLY builder plugins or can other plugins be used?

Hi Gregg,

thanks for your inquiry. You are free to customise all the code as much as you want, although editing the core Builder engine is not recommended, and will make it difficult, if not impossible to provide support. But if you want to edit the child themes (the recommended way to edit the themes), go for it! That will make it easier to update Builder Core without losing your modifications.

Builder theme is just like any other WordPress theme (yet a lot more versatile). You can use any WordPress plugin, just like you would on any other theme.

Hope that helps, let us know if you have any other questions,
