WordPress Page Builder Reviews
Beaver Builder Pro
Beaver Builder Pro excels as a page builder by giving you powerful ways to build and customize pages. Using it to build WordPress pages is a truly liberating experience. Recently surpassing 1,000,000 active installations, Beaver Builder is arguably the fastest, most stable, and user friendly page builder in the WordPress world. I highly recommend it.
The Elementor Pro team released the free version of Elementor in the summer of 2016 and followed up with Elementor Pro in the following December. Reaching a new milestone, Elementor Pro has more than 2 million active installations!
With over 50,000 downloads, Brizy Pro is growing and has huge potential to compete with the more popular page builders.
Divi Builder from Elegant Themes is a noticeably well built page builder. It has an impressive collection of powerful, well thought out page building features and customization options. On top of all that, the recent release of Divi Builder 4.0 adds full theme building! All this and recent performance improvements are sure to keep Divi…
SiteOrigin Page Builder
SiteOrigin Page Builder is built by a small, dedicated team. At first glance, this page builder doesn’t seem very special. However, it does have some very positive aspects.
Themify Builder promises big and claims that it is the the most powerful and intuitive page builder for WordPress. After using it for the first few minutes, you’ll quickly realize that it struggles to live up to it’s own hype.
WPBakery Page Builder
Visual Composer is easily one of the first (or the first) page builder plugins available for WordPress. Even after rebranding as Page Builder, WPBakery’s plugin still boasts that they have the all-time most popular page builder for WordPress. The reality is that though lifetime sales may still stack higher than it’s competitor’s, the time for this page builder is long over.
Cornerstone, developed by Themeco, is built into and tightly integrated with their X and Pro Themes. Themeco has also made it available for sale on CodeCanyon as a stand alone page builder. Cornerstone has a very clean look and uses some novel approaches to page building. However, the interface can be confusing and it will only work with themes that include a full page layout template.
First released in 2014, Live Composer has long been just under the radar. But with more than 50,000 active users, a lot of people are already sold on this page builder. After using it for a while, I found that there are a couple of things to like about it along with a few notable turn-offs.
Aqua Page Builder
Aqua Page Builder was developed by Syamil MJ back in 2013. It was actively updated for a few years and for it’s time was fairly innovative.
As of 2019, it hasn’t been updated for the last 3 major WordPress releases. If anyone is still using it, I strongly advise them to move on to a page builder that is actively developed. Using out of date plugins can create dangerous security vulnerabilities.
