A Simple Review On WPBakery Page Builder

WPBakery Page Builder is one of the commonly used page builders in WordPress. The reason for it is because of the simplicity of using it and the many available add-ons which extend its capabilities.

But, don’t be confused between the name WPBakery Page Builder and Visual Composer Page Builder. Visual Composer Page Builder is the old name of WPBakery Page Builder. The name has been changed for rebranding purposes.

And also don’t be confused between WPBakery Page Builder and Visual Composer Website Builder. They are two different things. Watch the video below for more information:

Now that the confusion is out of the way, you can read my review with absolute peace of mind.

To begin, I will talk about WPBakery Page Builder’s installation and setting up process

The installation is similar to any other WordPress plugins out there. All it takes is uploading the plugin, installing it and followed by activating it.

And that’s all is needed. There is no need configuration as it works right out of the box.

But, if you want to configure it in order to personalize your experience with it, you can do it from the settings section of the plugin.

For example, by default, the page builder is only enabled for pages in WordPress. Under the settings area, you can overwrite it and make it available for posts as well. You can also manage the user roles that will be able to access the page builder.

Another interesting thing which you can do from the settings area is build your own grid. You can build and design your own grid(s) and save it for later use. Watch the video tutorial below to see how this works.

Now, I will dive in and talk about the main course, the page builder

The page builder is very straightforward and it’s very similar to how the Gutenberg Editor works.

Elements are sort of features for the page builder. For instance, if you want to add a notification to the page, then you will need to add the Message Box element. If compared to the Gutenberg Editor, the elements are blocks.

There are 53 elements provided. Each and every element has it’s own purpose.

If you want to add more elements, then you will need to purchase the Massive Addons plugin. The Massive Addons adds more than 1750 elements. That’s more than you will ever need for a lifetime.

But, if you are a beginner who develops a basic website, the 53 elements are good enough to build a nice page or a post.

Other than that, you can easily adjust the columns of the page, add rows and move everything about in a drag and drop method.

And, it also allows you to build a page or a post from the front-end. This way you get to experience the changes made in real-time.

The last thing that got my attention is the Templates function. It allows you to build a page or a post template and store it for future use. Not only it saves you a lot of time, it also allows you to create a standard template for all your pages and posts. Hence, standardizing your WordPress website.
