Reviews

Awkward plugin

I am familiar with a lot of page builder plugins, and was curious about this free one. I was disappointed. Poor UI, weird way of working, and I had to disable quite a few other plugins before it even worked. These other plugins (for tweaking, optimization and caching WP) don’t interfere with other page builders, but do with this one. Sorry, 2 stars for the effort.

Great flexibility, full featured

A great free page builder. Once you get the hang of it, using this plugin is actually pretty self explanatory. I haven’t yet found a layout it could not handle.
The ability to copy-paste any part from one page to another, from one site to another, is quite well thought-out. It makes it easy to store your own layout templates without fumbling around.
Everything just works. css management is very flexible.
Of course like any page builder it is prone to acute “DIVitis”, but who cares, really, when using such a tool.

Looking forward to see the text element work with the Gutenberg editor.

Thanks !

Useful page builder!

Thanks Bold Builder authors for creating this very useful plugin! I think that the best thing about Bold Builder is that it includes Undo/Redo which other (popular) builders don’t have. Also, interface is clear and simple. Great plugin!

Excellent plugin

You have created an excellent plugin – it boosts the possibilities related to building page layouts while working with themes without own page builders – especially free themes. It is intuitive and easy to use with the set elements out of the box. Suggestion for future development – add even more elements and add element visible / hidden option for different resolutions. All in all, great product with lots of potential.

Very easy to use

Very goor page builderplugin. Easy to use for non-tech users and has a lot of ready-mede elements.
