How to use popular pagebuilders

Maxbuttons is compatible with many popular pagebuilders. There is a high chance your page builder will work with MaxButtons out of the box. In this document we explain how to use MaxButtons with Gutenberg, Beaver Builders, Pagebuilder by Siteorigins and Elementor.

Page builders not mentioned may just as well work if they implement the WordPress toolbar. If not, you can always just copy and paste the shortcode in your document and that should work as well.


Gutenberg, the default editor of WordPress, can add MaxButtons in two ways.

The first way ( recommended ) is using the MaxButtons block. You can add this like other blocks by hitting the / key or using the + button for adding a new block. You can pick the block from the list. On the right side there is a ‘select button’ option which will open the selection list for buttons. You can customize various options on the right side as well.
