WooCommerce vs Shopify
January 28, 2023
Page builders are plugins that take the place of the default WordPress editor. They allow for a greater design control than the default editor. Page builders contain a variety of useful design elements like, quote sections, counters, accordions, flip cards, sharing, etc.. The also give you the ability to fine tune CSS elements either across the entire site or page by page. Page builders have varying degrees of complexity and you should make sure that you consider both the builder features and the skill level of the person(s) who'll be using it.

Simple versus complex

As mentioned above, page builders differ in complexity, necessary skill set and the HTML/CSS knowledge of the people using the builder. That all needs to be taken into account. Here is a list of just some popular page builders.

  • Elementor
  • Beaver Builder
  • Divi
  • Brizy
  • WP Page Builder
  • WPBakery Page Builder
  • Visual Composer

Features are, of course, the most important factor to consider when picking a page builder. Most include standard elements such as accordions, dropdowns, CTAs, sliders and Google maps. But the number of available elements. And the degree to which you can fine tune elements also varies. So it's best to familiarize yourself with several builders in order to get an idea of what is available.
