If you've ever tried to get full-width Beaver Builder pages when using a Genesis child theme, you'll know that it's not an easy thing to achieve.
As many of the Genesis child themes don't come full-width "edge to edge" enabled out of the box, you usually have to force them to full-width by modifying some of the style sheet code. There are also some slight differences between the themes, so "one snippet of code for all" wasn't a viable solution.
Then, I just happened to be reading my buddy Robby's August Update over at the Beaver Builder blog and he talks a little about a new plugin called Genesis Dambuster that makes it easy to create full-width pages when using Genesis child themes. I thought I'd go check it out and see what all the fuss was about.
The FREE Genesis Dambuster plugin ends all the pain! It will enable you to make the majority of the StudioPress Genesis child themes go full-width with just a click of a mouse. It's just like having a magic width button!
The Genesis Dambuster plugin allows you override several Genesis settings without typing any code. You can choose to enable it on single pages and posts, so you get total flexibility over what you want to see on individual pages or your whole site. Here are some of the other options:
- Remove The Genesis Header - Great for Landing Pages
- Remove The Primary & Secondary Menus
- Remove Breadcrumbs
- Remove Page & Post Titles
- Remove Footer Widgets
- Remove Footer - Also Great for Landing Pages
- Remove Author, Date, Comments etc.
- And more....
I used The Daily Dish child theme and here's a quick before and after...

The Genesis Dambuster plugin has definitely become one of my favourite plugins for Genesis. I'm so impressed that we're going to give it our first official "No Coding Required" stamp of approval.

So, if you're a Genesis & Beaver Builder user, head on over to the WordPress Repository, download the Genesis Dambuster plugin and get ready to press those "Easy Buttons".
