Hi -

Just have a quick pre-sales question on Builder.

If I buy Builder, will I be able to add video anywhere on my website, regardless of the child theme I pick?

Basically, here is what I need to do on the home page:
  • a video at the top with text to the right or left
  • multiple videos at the top in a slider like capability
Also, have the flexibility to have additional video throughout interior pages placed at various spots (not necessarily to top of the page).

Any help on:
  • if Builder is the tool for this?

  • which child theme may be best (as example, foundation glacier, blueprint or some other one), based on your expertise is much appreciated?
Thank you,

#2 Ronald

Hi Lynne,

as Builder is "just" a WordPress theme, you can embed videos just like you can on any other WordPress site. What makes Builder more than "just a WordPress theme" is the fact that you can create any layout you want, so that would be the flexibility you're probably looking for.

However, Builder doesn't contain functionality such as "Videos in a Slider", but you would use the same solution for that as you would for any other (WordPress) site. For WordPress, there are several plugins that you could use.

Each child theme is a skin for Builder, there is no difference in functionality. So the best child theme would be the one that you think suits your needs (as far as looks is concerned) best.

hope this helps, a bit,

Thanks for the clarity, Ronald!

That's exactly what I needed to know.
