Drag & Drop Page Builders

We know how handy can be to use a page builder on your web­site. That’s why we test­ed the most com­mon and trust­wor­thy tools to make sure that every­thing works great with our themes. Use their drag-and-drop fea­tures to cre­ate com­plex lay­outs and fill them with but­tons, charts, icons or many oth­ers con­tent blocks.

What plugins have you tested?

  1. Ele­men­tor (free)
  2. Visu­al Com­pos­er ($34)
  3. Site­O­ri­gin Page Builder (Free)
  4. Moto­Press Con­tent Edi­tor ($29)
  5. Beaver Builder ($99)

Where should I use them?

We rec­om­mend to make the most out of them only for pre­sen­ta­tion pages and not for the dynam­i­cal­ly relat­ed ones (eg. Blog Archive).

Do you offer customer support for those plugins?

No. Let us tell you why: we heav­i­ly test­ed them to make sure every­thing runs smooth­ly — none of their ele­ments or styles weren’t specif­i­cal­ly changed. For any ques­tions regard­ing poten­tial prob­lems or any oth­er con­cerns, please refer to their authors. They are the ones who can eas­i­ly lend you a help­ing hand in order to get things done.

Which one fits best my needs?

Each of the plu­g­ins men­tioned above has their pros and cons. We rec­om­mend Ele­men­tor but we encour­age you to take over the Moto­Press Con­tent Edi­tor vs Visu­al Com­pos­er vs Site­O­ri­gin Page Builder vs Beaver Builder com­par­i­son table and decide on your own, tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion your spe­cif­ic needs and pref­er­ences.
