WEBFI-WordPress-How to Create a Custom WordPress Theme (without Code)

Are you looking to create a custom WordPress theme from scratch? Previously, you had to follow the WordPress codex and have coding knowledge to build a custom theme for yourself. Luckily things have improved and now anyone can create a completely custom WordPress theme within an hour without coding knowledge. In this video, we will show you how to easily create a custom theme without writing any code using Beaver Themer.


0:00 Intro
0:50 How to install Beaver Builder and Themer plugins
2:11 How to install Astra theme
3:57 How to create a custom header for your theme
8:22 Create a custom footer area for your theme
10:56 How to customize the content area for post or page
14:11 How to customize the category or archive pages

To start this guide you will need to purchase Beaver builder with their Beaver Themer addon. You can go to the Beaver Builder site here:

Once you have that purchased you would want to go to your WordPress site and upload the plugin under Plugins, Add New, and click the Upload Plugin button on the top left of the page with the plugin active, we will install the theme we will be using on the site, for this tutorial we will be using the Astra theme:

With the Astra theme we will set up the basic layout we’re wanting for the page such as showing no sidebar for the default and any custom page setup you would prefer. Next, go under Beaver Builder, Add New, title your design, and set it to themer layout and choose the section you want to modify.

You will now have the option to customize the design and style of your theme from a sticky header to changing the header to a specific location or adding a rule for how it is displayed. With that set up you can click the Launch Beaver Builder button to bring up the drag and drop interface of Beaver builder to customize the theme to what you’re wanting.

Beaver Builder included header and footer options as well as content areas for different types of posts. Singular being the default for post and page content so to edit the content you would edit your singular template. This template is where you would modify your content display, post title, and comments area, while the archive template is where you would modify the posts page.

  • Ronny Ron on March 19, 2020

    How do I use Beaver Builder to make a menu bar across the top ? I keep working at this Header thing but nothing seems to be working. I add a button but then I can't move it properly into place. Each new button stacks on top of each other…when I want then to be side by side.

    Im just trying to build a webpage that has multiple pages . I don't want the pages to scroll. I want a modal in the center of a page to scroll. With an image as the background and the modal semi translucent. And the menu bar at the top to always be there.
