The Avada Builder plugin, renamed from Fusion Builder in Avada 7.0, and one of the two required plugins with Avada, is our very own stand-alone page builder plugin, packed with innovative features and options. With Avada 6.0 and above, Avada Builder now comes in two interfaces in the one plugin, the traditional back-end wireframe editor, and the new front-end Avada Live.
As is the case with all plugins, you will have to install and activate it first in order to use it. To learn how, please continue reading below.
How to Install And Activate The Avada Builder Plugin
Step 1 – To be able to install the required plugins, you must first register Avada. See the How To Register Avada doc for details on that simple process.
Step 2 – Once you have registered Avda, navigate to the Avada > Plugins-Add-ons tab.
Step 4 – Here you will see the two required plugins, Avada Core and the Avada Builder. You need to install the Avada Core plugin before installing the Avada Builder plugin.
Step 5 – On the Avada Core plugin, hover over the plugin’s image and click the ‘Install’ button. After the install completes and the plugin activates, click the “Return to Avada Plugins” link.
Step 6 – Back on the plugins page, hover over the Avada Builder’s image and click the ‘Install’ button. After the install completes and the plugin activates, click the “Return to Avada Plugins” link.
Once finished, you can now use the Avada Builder throughout your site, on any post types you enable in the Avada Builder Options.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Avada Builder user interface is not active by default when opening a page or post. However, you can change this globally and have the Avada Builder always active for pages and posts by going to Options > Builder Options > Avada Builder Auto Activation from the Avada Dashboard.
