Have been using themify and its builder for 4 years--was new to WP and choose the theme more than the builder and since then I have learned much more and I am no longer a "newbie" to WP. Themify builder is slow, prone to crashing and after themify updates you can almost be assured of issues. Support is terrible and takes 3 to 7 days to get a response and then usually only after you post a complaint on social media.

I like the overall design of the plugin and the interface when creating page content. But if it breaks, the entire site goes down. I've had to constantly create full offline backups of the wordpress files and the entire database when it works because if it breaks there is no going back unless you restore the database. This process will keep you developing one thing forever without making progress because you'd spend time debugging instead of creating or restoring backups after the entire thing comes down. There is little support for the errors like the TFCache not found if you disable the plugin and try to re-enable it, currently I'm just baffled by the backend which is completely gone?! I don't have any idea how to fix that, I've tried tweaking all the safe options (never disable the plugin because the whole site will crash beyond recovery). Also when you duplicate a block and try to move it, the page scales into a thin tall window and places the dropped block in the wrong place almost all the time. If the developers of this plugin were a little more serious and active, this would be the best plugin for page development in wordpress in my view because of it's light and simplistic yet straight forward nature. Sometimes the plugin will show the content placement correctly in edit mode but show things out of place and proportions when in live view.

I'm feeling proud to be the user of themify builder. I can not express my feelings but you guys have just done a lot for web designers a lot. Really can't thank a lot. Keep up the good work. It's 100/100 guys. Do use this builder. You'll go to places.

J'utilise Themify depuis 2018 et je suis vraiment satisfait de la qualité des nombreux produits proposées : Thèmes, Page Builder, addons, Custom Post type... Ils ont pensé à tout ou presque ! Le support est réactif et efficace. Le prix est plus que correct. Merci,

Disabling the plugin on my main child theme after working on a page to use on an empty page led me to this warning There has been a critical error on your website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions. as soon as i hit save.. i was ignorant enough to disable it without reading the warning my bad.. just a heads up.. you can most certainly use this plugin to build a very good layout without a need of custom theme honestly.only that this plugin is a bit too intrusive imo.
