Roll Your Own Beaver Builder Modals

I had been reviewing the Beaver Builder plugin code recently and found a few cool things that I wanted to test. The first

The first thing that came to mind was a way of creating your own modals using the page builder.

I've not yet released this yet (it might not be useful at all!), but I've published a video for you to check out here:

I previously posted articles on adding your own animations and adding a polaroid style to the photo module, which extended the default functionality of Beaver Builder without new modules.

While it's fairly simple to add additional modules for every new feature, it can be a bit cumbersome - for a developer, it's a lot to maintain, and for a user, it can be quite overwhelming having too many options.

I've seen in that plugins such as UABB have modal features that are also customisable, and they might satisfy the market (not that I'm trying to sell my plugin!), but I did want to prove that this could be done with minimal overhead, using Beaver Builder hooks, filters and functions to keep it as clean as possible.

Anyway - let me know what you think! If this is of use to some people, I'll continue to develop it and release it publicly - if not, it's been fun - and I'll certainly use it for myself!

    As a newbie in WP it would be great to learn how to extend BB modules.
    I would really love to get hands on it!
