Totally transforms wordpress
By , for WP 3.8.1

Make any theme responsive! Place widgets wherever you want on the page, in an easy to use wysiwyg editor tab integrated in the default page editor. Has a lot of cool widgets included, but you can use it with any widgets you want.

Very useful plugin. Not only for administrators also for developers.

AN AMAZING BALANCE
By ,

Works with SEO, custom width columns, has a good range of widgets. More would be nice, but all the ones that are there are useful.

Well thought-out. Enough constraint to give meaning, but enough freedom to create something decent!

Intuitive and so helpful
By , for WP 3.8.1

I just installed this on a 'build' site which is running an Artisteer developed Theme using Templateer. I activated the plugin with trepidation but found it all to work fine. This is so much easier than using Templateer's shortcodes for rows and spans and I feel it is something I can teach to my more savvy CMS clients.

If I have a question it how this concept will merge with the inevitable demand for Mobile First approaches. Building a site from widgets is novel and remarkably productive, especially as I am already a fan of Black Studio TinyMCE Widget, the principle building block IMO. I may come back with a five star rating when I have build something complex that stands the test of time.

PageBuilder Okay, but support is lacking
By , for WP 3.8.1

I'm giving them a 4 rating only because I think that eventually PageBuilder will be a great plug-in for WordPress. It does have it's bugs and issues right now though. For example, Posts with Thumbnail images don't work unless you literally delete code in their content-single.php file. But this could be a really good plug-in if they can get it working.

Now on to their support. That is truly horrible. There really isn't any support. Even in the forums you'll see people will have asked questions days or weeks ago with no response. I purchased the premium version of Vantage and had problems and finally got a response using e-mail. I think this company is probably just a couple of guys good at coding with a designer's eye and they probably work full-time jobs which means they're not available for support. That's why I'm giving them the 4 instead of a 1. I think the solution may be that they have us pay for pageBuilder at rate that will allow them to be available 24/7 for support. If they get this plug-in fixed and combine it with fully customizable themes -- the Vantage Theme is actually pretty customizable -- I'd be willing to pay them $100 a month in membership just to use their pageBuilder and Themes. But, I want 24/7 support available before I'd commit to that. Others -- please put in your input and maybe these guys can set a future date where we can all sign up for a "fee" and then they can live with 24/7 support on that date and spend their time developing their themes and PageBuilder. Just saying (as they say).
