A real god and easy builder best og the free ones
Because of some reviews, i start using the plugin and found that the reviews do not lie. It is an awesome plugin that makes my blog page looks unique and beautiful.
My impression was much higher the plugin and its support team, when i had a problem A huge effort of Helps have been given the support team to solve my problem personally ... a great efforts from the plug-in support team.
I am deeply impressed and really appreciate their responsiveness and their willingness to help. 5 starts worth for the support alone, yet the plugin is awesome too ...
Even though I have a background in the arts, I'm still quite new to web design. This proved to be frustrating since I wanted complete control over the design of my site, while knowing very little about how to customize themes, much less write code.
Also knowing that I wanted more of static site than than a blog, I began to fear that WordPress wasn't right for me. I began looking into other CMS options like Weebly and Squarespace but quickly realized they lacked the robust community of plugins and support that WordPress has acquired over the years (not to mention the fact that these other options started at an additional $10 a month, on top of hosting).
So I somehow stumbled across page builder plugins for WP, tested a few out, and quickly realized that Inno Gears offers THE best free full-page customization plugin for WordPress. I love the way it matches the WordPress theme, blending in perfectly as if it were offered by WP themselves. Everything is easy to understand, with a high level of customization right out of the box. You can tweak even more through each item's styling options if you know how to code - but even if you don't - IG has been great about monitoring the support forums, offering quick answers to any issues or requests users may have.
Even though I should start watching some videos at Code Academy, working with this plugin has shown me a bit about how CSS and PHP operate and I'm learning, bit by bit. I'm having a blast working with IG PageBuilder and am so grateful that such powerful products exist for free!
(I should balance this review with my only complaint though: it runs a little slow on the front-end. I have seen others mention this as well but IG says they're looking into some performance tweaks. The speed is in no way a dealbreaker, but I do hope loading times can be improved by a few milliseconds.)
I have tested many page builders. Here is my review about IG Page Builder
1. Simplicity - Almost 0 learning curve.
2. In-built and Pro Elements are well chosen and covers most common types of presentation.
3. Widgets integration - Placing widgets at desired place makes the page builder even more powerful.
4. Responsive - Not all page builders claiming themselves as responsive are as elegant as IG Page Builder. There is room of improvement but still it is far better than many others.
5. Great Support - IG listens ! Guys "DO" reply your queries ! :) Also they humbly accept the shortcomings and honestly try to serve better. I highly appreciate it.
1. Performance - The show-stopper. Page load time gets incremented by minimum 3-4 seconds on frontend and backend. This issue is raised by many and exists till current version of plugin i.e. 2.2.1 [as of 14-May-2014]
BUT no need to get nervous, there is a GOOD news, team has found out the cause and rewriting the core to finally kill this haunting issue. Refer : http://www.innogears.com/forum/product-support/464-so-slow-help.html#1050
Since I think positive, I feel that in future version, the performance become feather in cap of IG Pagebuilder.
Best luck team !
Despite of performance issue, due to many pros, hard work of IG team and spirit to improvise, I feel this plugin deserve 5 stars !
UPDATE - 19 MAY 2014
The performance is enhanced significantly in version 2.3. Great Work IG team.
Hands down this is the best page builder that I have tested, and I have tested many of them, including some Premium ones, namely Divi's by Elegant Themes, and Themify. Themify and the rest of them (except Divi) are far inferior to this.
The best feature is the ability to extend your row backgrounds to the edge of the screen, even though the theme has a fixed width. Divi can do that too, but none of the others that I tested.
So why 4 stars instead of 5? Because this plugin adds a 2-3 seconds more on my page load times, which is bad for SEO, and bad for page visitors to continue using the web site. My page load time used to be on average 0.4 seconds, with the plugin it jumps to about 2.5 seconds on average, which to be honest it seems more like 5-6 seconds to a human. Using a cache plugin (Quick Cache) did not help much, did manage to make it 0.3 seconds faster, that's all.
Overall though, I'm really impressed with this plugin, and once it gets properly optimised, and further developed, it will crush all the competitors, hands down. This plugin definitely deserves more publicity and more people to download it, at least just to test it. I am not sure if in it's current form, it is wise to use it in actual sites, due to the performance issues.
Good job so far though, I just became a big fan!
UPDATE - MAY 16 2014.
I just downloaded the latest version - and what a shock!!! The performance improvements are night and day !!! This is by far my fav. page builder. I will now definately buy the pro addons now, and upgraded my Rating from 4 to 5 stars. I fully recommend this plugin, not that it matters since I'm a nobody.
Good job, I am a big fan, and very shortly a loyal paying customer...
Good job! I love this plugin!
IG is powerful and best page builder. I have created complex layouts using it and it works great. Good job IG team :)
This look to be an awesome plugin for my clients as most of them find it very difficult to use wordpress visual editor(default). I have not used it yet but I definitely will install it in my next project.
Innovation, so many cool features, free, easy to use, what else can one need.
Job well done guys. Keep it up.
