    I would also consider Thrive Content Bulder (TCB). Part of the Thrive Theme family. I’ve tried and looked at most of these competitors before deciding on this page builder. It’s fast, fluid, flexible with lots of options that can be fine tuned. Well supported and at a reasonable price.

      I use TCB and is pretty good, what I don´t like TCB insert the layout after the_content, this means is not inside the editor, and not tracked in the revision. Appart of that is a fantastic plugin for non programmers and help Makerting tem build cool landing pages.

    I can tell a lot of work went into writing this review of page building solutions, so I commend you for that.
    However, I am offended at the notion you propose: that “web developers” are an expensive, disposable commodity that one would always do better without. I feel that your sentiments would be better expressed by highlighting how the ability and desire of DIYers is met by the solutions you’ve described. Rather than doing that, the way the post is phrased makes those who make a living (who wouldn’t want that?) as web developers sound like scheming money grubbers who should never be dealt with. On the contrary, there are more solutions than not that cannot be delivered without the expertise of a professional. I think that highlighting the scenarios where page builders are best fit would better serve your readers.

      While the intention wasn’t to offend web developers (we are web developers ourselves after all), I agree with you that there needs to be a further clarification on where one should use page builders and when one should go directly to a web developer.

        I’m sure your intention wasn’t to offend web developers. After all, I’m sure those are neither your target market or largest reader base. What I take issue with is the way developers are phrased:
        “Wouldn’t it be great if we never needed to be 100% dependant on some expensive web developer…”
        “…without the need to touch any code or hire any expensive developers. Who wouldn’t want that?”

        There are many who *would* want that, and many who don’t want that, but need it regardless.

        At the end of the day, it’s your blog – write what you think is best. It’s just my opinion that currently this post serves to further degrade a profession that already struggles with a public perception problem.

    Hey Mark! Thanks so much for mentioning Beaver Builder. Also, thanks for pointing out that pages/content built with BB won’t disappear if you ever decide to stop using BB! 😉

    A quick clarification, the Beaver Builder theme is included in our premium packages and it complements the page builder quite well.

    Keep up the awesome blogging!

    Visual composer is awesome, and is most widely used as it allows to create custom add-ons for it. The only issue is it sometimes act weird after WordPress upgrades.

    Thanks for the awesome post! I will try other page builders to see if they can sort out some existing issues for me.

    Great list! I tried the Site Origin, Beaver and Visual Composer.
    Visual Composer has much options. But seem they bring everything into it, that why it so heavy this time. The Ajax loading is slow.
    Finally I used the King Composer page builder for my projects.

    Beaver Builder is the best page builder that I have worked with. The underlying code is solid and extensible, follows WP coding standards and above all, it’s backed by a great team.

    I also like the widgetized approach of Conductor plugin.

    @Mark you might also like to chec kout our add-on for Beaver Builder that takes it to the next level. https://wpbeaveraddons.com
