Build responsive page layouts using the widgets you know and love using this simple drag and drop page builder.
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.
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).
Help a lot to build pages with layout.
If it can had preview of the content it will be greater
Really great easy to use plug in!
it worked great until i updated to wordpress 3.8.1. now i've rolled back to WP 3.7.1, installed older versions of this widget, but for some reason it keeps on deleting all my content.
no replies to my issues, i really hope this widget gets fixed.
- Well written; clean code and extensively tested.
- The interface is very modern, uncluttered and fast.
- The use of widgets allows this plugin to be built upon extremely easily without the modification of any core files.
- Compatibility amongst other themes and plugins is flawless.
This plugin is great for developers creating websites for clients or for novice WordPress users.
The best page building plugin I have used. Much better than some of the expensive paid options out there.
Page Builder by Site Origen gives WordPress a whole lot more by being able to layout pages on the fly and capture all sorts of functionality on the page, not just in the widget areas.
Well Done, this is on my list of go to plugins. This lets you say yes to the customer who has changed their mind for the third time since deployment 3 days ago.
Love it. Love it. Love it. - a whole lot more than a facebook like.
This plugin is clearly a superlative! It exceeds all expectations so far, it is fast, powerful and easy to use. I haven't meet any problem using it and I just wish I cold say that about some other stuff out there!
Best PageBuilder out there, even better than most premium builders...
This plugin is just awesome. It meets all expectations, it is fast, powerful and easy to use.
I haven't meet any problem using it.
