The 8 best free Wordpress page builders
Elementor has now been installed on almost 5 million websites. Elementor has a great pro version but I also have the free version at the top of the list as you can see. Elementor can be used in combination with their own Hello Elementor theme, or any other minimalist theme and preferably 1 that is specially prepared for collaboration with Elementor such as for example Astra. Astra has a pro and also a free version. Elementor is a joy to work with and there are a lot of "third party" plug-ins and special themes available for it. Divi, Elementor's biggest competitor has no free version and so we have Elementor on 1 as best free Wordpress page builder.
Beaverbuilder just released a major update and is now much more modern. Beaverbuilder is very easy to use and is a popular choice for absolute beginners. Beaverbuilder is simple, but it allows you to do almost anything. Beaverbuilder offers a White-Label that allows you to replace Beaverbuilder logos or create your own. Beaverbuilder allows you to make minor adjustments to the design for each device (desktop/tablet, mobile), so everything looks great. By the way, Beaverbuilder works perfectly with the popular theme Astra Pro, as Astra contains a large number of demos made with Beaverbuilder.
Articles for the Zion Builder are now appearing everywhere. All of these writers are probably not familiar with the Zion-Builder at all. By that I mean that this page builder only recently became known when it became available as a standalone plugin. Before that time, the page builder already existed for about 8 years, I estimate. Well hidden in the Kallyas Theme, a theme I've been working with for so long. I usually chose that theme, not only because the theme is fantastic for webshops, but also because of the page builder with which you could work very precisely. The Zion-Builder also contains a lot of widgets to provide your pages with all kinds of gadgets.
The UX-Builder is included in the Flatsome Theme, which is one of the best themes for building webshops. The UX-Builder is certainly one of the better page builders, even if its reputation is not very high. It is practically the situation that the Zion-Builder had before they marketed the page builder as a plugin that can be installed in any other theme. There is a good chance that the UX-Builder will one day be available separately. For now, it is only available in the Flatsome theme. If you are going to build a shop, this is definitely a good choice and you can immediately test whether you like the UX-Builder.
The Fusion-Builder has been around for quite some time, about as long as the Avada Theme that contains the page builder. The reputation of the page builder is comparable to that of the UX-Builder. Neither of these are available as a plugin and only come together with a theme. The Fusion Builder is one of the best themes out there, although the Avada Theme is not my personal favorite. Many people do, so if you want to test a new page builder, don't hesitate to build your site with this theme and the Fusion-Builder.
WP-Bakery Pagebuilder is an old hand in the business and has been around for at least 10 years. For this reason, many people are familiar with it and the page builder is error-free and works well. I must say that he still offers very little innovation and other more modern page builders come alongside. Like Elementor, many "third parties" have launched plug-ins to extend this page builder with anything and everything. Many premium themes have a deal with WP-Bakery and have the page builder included as standard. The separate page builder costs practically more than a theme and requires a separate license for each site you have, which unfortunately makes the page builder very expensive. WP-Bakery Pagebuilder is quite suitable for beginners.
Gutenberg is the default Wordpress editor. This page builder is actually still under development and for that reason does not work too well. This is clearly shown by the super-poor rating that the page builder gets on Wordpress.org, where the plug-in can also be downloaded for free. It is absolutely not recommended to build your website with Gutenberg. Apart from that, most people don't understand Gutenberg well either, everything is confusing. There are plugins that remove Gutenberg and put back the familiar WP editor we had before Gutenberg. Read my tutorial about this via the button below. I should definitely recommend using one of the first 3 page builders in this list or using a premium Wordpress pagebuilder.
