TIPS! Important things about this function

Here are the main points I’ve come up with that I think you should know about this Bricks Builder PHP check to see if the builder is active and in the Bricks editing mode…

Use this instead of !is_admin()

The reason I started looking for this function was because I was adding the tracking code for the Popup software I use called ConvertBox.


I tried A LOT of popup WordPress plugins and Sass and ConvertBox was the best choice. Available as a lifetime deal and now owned by the same team as the highly-successful ThriveCart. It’s an all-in-one popup software that just works (and works extremely well!).

Get ConvertBox

EXAMPLE: Using this PHP conditional to add custom JS

On my live website, I use ConvertBox for all my Popup forms.

For some reason, when I loaded in my JS tracking code for ConvertBox, it broke the Bricks editor and I had errors in the JS console.
