Toolbox Settings

You can find the settings and options panel for Toolbox in your Dashboard > Settings section.

The settings and options consists of a number of tabs, each having a specific set of settings.

Main settings tab

On the main settings tab you will find options for settings for CPT’s, adding the *Toolbox tab to your nodes settings panels and adding the Google Maps API key for use within ACF and Toolbox. Let’s go over each setting:

Force these post-types into Full Width layout

If you are using the Beaver Builder theme and/or Beaver Builder child-theme you can enable Default Full Width layouts on selected CPT’s. If you don’t, you will have a sidebar next to your layout.

Enable extra connections on selected modules

This option allows you to disable/enable some of the options Toolbox adds to the Rows, Columns and Modules panels. By default it will be activated and an extra Tab will be added to every node’s settings panel. The Tab is called “* Toolbox”.

On this tab you will find the Conditional Logic section and the Custom Attributes section, which are described later on in the documentation.

This option also changes some of the default modules settings so that it allows them to accept connections from within Beaver Themer.

Google Maps API key

Enter your API key to enable selecting addresses on Google Maps fields and the ability to drag Google Map fields into your layouts.

Timber Templates

These options are specifically intended for the optional Timber-library plugin. If you download and activate the Timber-library plugin you will be able to use Twig templates for even more powerful features.

Disable code check on Code Fields

Beaver builder uses a syntax checker to validate your html. When it return as invalid, Beaver Builder won’t allow you to save it until corrected. Because we can write our Twig templates in a way that it will render valid HTML, but is checked as being invalid as HTML, you can (temporarily) disable code-checking to allow saving anyway.

Enable Twig Templates CPT

If you have created a complex Twig template, or one you want to re-use on several modules, you can move your template over to a new Twig Template and include it on multiple modules.

Enable Twig Templates

Twig templates works well with relational fieldtypes but can also be used on any of the other fieldtypes registered in your WordPress site. Enable them to be able to use the template engine.

NOTE: disabling the fieldtypes will also disable the twig template applied on the module.

Conditional Filters

Here you will find settings for the conditional filters in Toolbox.

Server timezone

Set the timezone to the server’s location to be able to evaluate the datetime correctly.
