Support » Plugin: WP Page Builder » a case of the YAPB (Yet Another Page Builder)

  • After all the hype Themeum made prior to the launch, we were anxious to give their new page builder a spin. It is a promising product – yet there were some “buts” to it…
    Stability is an issue – it is still a beta, but often things just did not work, like modules did not get loaded and added porperly. Then there is the issue of the theme or better – the lack of. I would expect a page builder to come bundled with a blank canvas theme where it can really shine as you build pages from scratch. Also preloading a full page layout only makes sense, if you don’t have a surrounding framework that clashes in design. So overall, we really found no need to go after yet another page builder. So why should you? There are several strong and well-proven contenders in the market already AND – and that is probably the most important factor – as the Themeum page builder doesn’t really offer anything new. There is no fresh take on for instance the user interface. It actually looks a little old-timey, especially when compared to the Beaver Builder in particular, which is and will continue to be our go-to product at this point. It just delivers the better package with a fully integrated theme architecture and overall stable functions. But you never know – maybe the WP Page Builder will rise to be the best someday – but that day is not today.

    Thank you very much for your valuable feedback that will help us a lot. If you see the Page Builder then you will see that in this page builder, there are 28 addons, 60+ blocks & 5 layout bundles are 100% free. Those features are available as a Pro feature for other page builders. So, as this is a brand new page builder, you can consider it’s as a baby. It will be mature day by day.

    We have a great team and plan which will drive WP Page Builder to a new level within a very short time and we believe that.

    In the end, thank you very much for your honest opinion which will encourage us to do better.

    As I wrote before – we will monitor it now and again and give it time to mature. For now, it is probably enough for sophisticated private users, but it simply does not hold up to the needs of the professionals (just yet) when considering the full package. Best of luck with your product though. And maybe, just maybe you will find that one killer feature that will make it stand out from the herd.
