A list of my favorite pagebuilders and why. I also include a list of my non-favorites for comparison reasons. I compare them on features, ease-of-use, speed, clean output code, and compatibility.
Best pagebuilders for WordPress:
- Elementor – the most popular, and powerful free-version. Cutting-edge pagebuilder with all the latest features. Newbies should start here.
- BeaverBuilder – 2nd best, most stable and reliable. Preferred by more serious tech-savvy folks who prefer stability over features.
- Site Origin – CAN be lean.
- Oxygen – great for developers wanting really lean pagebuilder experience. Arguably the fastest/leanest pagebuilder.
- Brizy – another good one.
Pagebuilders I don’t like:
- Divi – way bloated, tons of shortcode
- Fusion Builder (AVADA) – bloated
- King Composer – hardly none and really bad.
- Thrive Architect – not coded well compared to the rest of the market, slow!
