How did we get here?

Beaver Builder is a fantastic plugin that allows for drag-and-drop layouts with ease and it takes WordPress to the next level. The layout is built with rows, similar to a grid system and each row has quite a few options to choose from.

For Example, in the screenshot below we have a row.

  • The Green Box is the row with a background image
  • The pink and yellow boxes are columns within the row
  • The Pink box has an image within the element
  • The Yellow box has an icon list

The Issue

The background image would only show when logged in. Sometimes it would not show at all with the row background or it would just show as a white background which is not intended.

We attempted to clear the cache on our host, WP Engine, the Beaver Builder cache (located in the settings) and the Cloudflare cache (located on the dashboard).

Nothing worked. Thanks to the wonderful tech support from the Beaver Builders support team the issue was resolved with a code snippet.

To begin working on a new layout, drag and drop a row layout of your choice onto the page. Mouse over the row that you just dragged onto the page to see a set of icons that show the available actions for that row.

Set the layout to have a background. The blocks of the layout itself are called a ‘row’, and within the row itself, you can have columns and other elements such as titles, text, and images.

For the row’s background, you must set it to an image in this example. What happens is Beaver Builder

Fixing this is done by adding a code snippet to your fuctions.php file.

I recommend making a backup and editing the file via FTP when possible.


  • Add this to your functionality plugin or to the functions.php file
  • The first URL is your actual URL – mine is
  • The second URL is your CDNs URL
// The first URL is your actual URL. The second is your CDN url.
add_filter( 'fl_builder_render_css', function( $css ) {
	$css = str_replace( '', '', $css );
	return $css;
