Using Builder for your WordPress websites makes editing your content easy. Any changes you make to your pages in Builder are automatically updated on your site. Below we will go over:
- Pasting Builder HTML into WordPress
- Using Builder's APIs
Pasting Builder HTML into WordPress
Create a page that you want on your WordPress site and publish it. Then click the three dots in the upper right hand corner and select “get code”. Scroll all the way to the right, select “WordPress”, and copy the code to your clipboard.
Now, go to WordPress and create a new page. Click “custom HTML”, paste the HTML, and publish. Your Builder page will now display on your WordPress site. Make sure your WordPress site allows you to use unfiltered HTML.
Using Builder's APIs
This process is more advanced. You can have your developer hook up Builders APIs so as you make updates, these changes will automatically update on your WordPress site. You can find documentation on how to use Builders API’s in the developer guide. This guide explains how to use Builders API’s and how your developer can hook then up to your WordPress site. Anytime a page request comes into your WordPress site and WordPress doesn’t match it to a page inside of its own database, you can use Builders HTML API to hit Builder with your API key and URL, and Builder will respond if it has a page that matches the URL. It will give you the full HTML, and you can put this in your template and send it back to your end users. Anytime a new page is created in Builder, it will show up automatically on your WordPress site and will render server-side, which is more ideal for performance and SEO.
