Support » Plugin: Spectra - WordPress Gutenberg Blocks » Unfortunate experience of using this builder

  • Canada WebMaster


    I recently had the unfortunate experience of using this builder, and I must say it was a highly frustrating and time-consuming endeavour. From its sluggish performance to constant freezing, this page builder fell short in numerous ways, leaving me incredibly dissatisfied with its functionality. I regret that I cannot recommend it to anyone seeking a smooth and efficient website-building experience.

    First and foremost, the biggest issue I encountered was the abysmally slow performance of this builder. Every action, whether adding or editing content, felt like wading through molasses. Each click or command took an excruciatingly long time to register, significantly delaying my workflow. This inefficiency hampered my productivity and tested my patience to its limits.

    Adding insult to injury, the page builder seemed to freeze or become unresponsive far too often. It became a frustratingly common occurrence for me to encounter the “Franzen” while trying to edit even the simplest elements. It felt like a game of chance; each time I made an adjustment, I held my breath, hoping the builder wouldn’t crash and force me to start again. This constant fear of losing progress made the experience incredibly stressful and added unnecessary hurdles to the already tedious website design task.

    To make matters worse, refreshing the page became a routine necessity when using this builder. It was as if the only way to keep it from completely giving up was to restore frequently, disrupting my workflow and consuming valuable time. The constant need to hit the refresh button significantly slowed the entire editing process, rendering the page builder useless for any time-sensitive projects.

    Given the shortcomings, it is clear that this builder is not a contender in the competitive website builders market. Its slow performance, frequent crashes, and dependence on constant refreshing make it an impractical choice for anyone seeking an efficient and streamlined web development experience. There are numerous other page builders available that offer superior performance and user-friendly interfaces, making this particular option pale in comparison.

    In conclusion, my experience with this builder was far from satisfactory. Its sluggishness, constant freezing, and dependence on frequent refreshes frustrated me.

    I strongly discourage others from using this builder, as it fails to deliver the efficiency and reliability required for effective website development. Instead, I recommend exploring alternative page builders that can provide a smoother and more enjoyable user experience.

    Thanks for reaching out. I opened a support ticket with Spectra and am hoping this gets resolved. I like the platform but cannot see why I am getting such slow editing as my other sites with the same hosting and settings on other themes are working well.
