Drag and drop builders for your WordPress site

WordPress Page Builders

Share the knowledge:


The visual editor that comes with WordPress core provides some pretty decent basics to add and style content, but if you’re looking for some added functionality and more creative styling then a page builder is your answer.

No coding knowledge required.

With so many WordPress Page Builder options available, it can be tricky to decide on which one to use. Listed below are a few of the free (with purchase options to extend functionality) and paid plugins to create web pages with stunning results.

Drag and drop builders for your WordPress site

Check out more information about each through the links provided and see the demos and videos that show how they function. They’ll all provide options to ‘style-up’ your site through front-end builders, back-end builders or both. You’ll also find the biggest difference in ease-of-use and elements offered.

There are many reviews and recommendations to be found in a simple google search, so if you want to go deeper in your research, you’ll have lots of resources online.

Keep in mind (my Canadian friends) that probably all of the prices listed are in US dollars.
