Plugin / Builder Template Categories – for WordPress Page Builders

David Decker - DECKERWEB



Organize your Page Builder Templates in the WordPress Admin. Time saver, especially for bigger projects. Get a better and faster overview, don’t get lost. Filter templates with your categories. With extended plugin & theme support.

Out of the box the plugin includes integrations for a lot of awesome Page Builders, Themes and Plugins. If any supported integration is installed & active, the “Builder Template Categories” plugin just applies its additions. The plugin is really lightweight and simple. Just activate and you’re done – and can use the categorization.

♥️ What the Plugin does?

  • Better organize your templates if you have many of them
  • Better overview for admins and site builders
  • Filtering in the overview table of a post type (typical WordPress overview) via Dropdown Filter, or Link filter in the row of a post type’s post
  • For WordPress 5.0+ with Block Editor (Gutenberg): make the Reusable Blocks visible in Admin and organize them – yeah, finally! Your growing collection of reusable blocks needs some organization – this plugin here makes it possible! 😉
  • Only for admins, within the admin – a great helper tool
  • No frontend, no scripts, no styles – nothing! 🙂
  • Lightweight, efficient
  • Developer friendly: clean code, inline documentation, lots of filters available

🚀 Typical Use Case of this Plugin

You are building a big site with lots of different templates across various template libraries of different plugins.
Now the “Builder Template Categories” plugin helps you organize those templates better and more efficiently. For example you have a template category “Landing Pages”.
This category is now visible in Elementor’s “My Templates”, as well as in the Theme “GeneratePress” and its “Elements” Module, as well as in “PopBox for Elementor” plugin and also in “Pods” plugin’s “Templates”.

So in every one of those libraries you can now filter and list all parts of templates for this specific post type that belong to your “Landing Pages” category.

Please note: The categories are global but when filtering only those items are listed that are connected to the specific post type. See the FAQ for more info on that
