    Hi Tom. What’s your opinion on this review?

    Also, it was not initially designed to be a theme that works with any page builder, so with that there are options that you will not be using.

    My long-term concern is that the developer is not really a fan of page builders despite it being the main driver of sales. There are many things that would just be easier for the theme to have a setting for, but I fear the developer is overly conservative in what he will implement.

    Hi there,

    I don’t dislike page builders. In fact, I appreciate that they allow people to create really nice websites who otherwise wouldn’t be able to.

    One of the rules we follow is to not add plugin-specific code to the theme. Who knows if Page Builder XYZ will still be popular in a year or two from now? It would be a shame to bloat the theme with a bunch of code that will be unnecessary in the future. It’s easy to add options, but it’s not easy to remove them if you care about backward compatibility.

    One thing I’m really proud of is the themes ability to integrate with any page builder seamlessly, even though it’s not aware of their existence. It speaks to the overall flexibility of GP 🙂

    Makes sense. Thanks. I agree with you too.
