Divi Builder vs WP Bakery Pagebuilder comparison 2020
In this Divi Theme vs WP Bakery Pagebuilder comparison, I discuss the qualities of both page builders. The WP Bakery Pagebuilder exists a bit longer than the Divi-Builder and is also installed on more websites. Both feature an inline front-end editor, and many have many additional plugins and third-party designs available. I start with Divi without it meaning it would be better.
DIVI-BUILDER REVIEW (Divi vs Bakery Pagebuilder)
The strengths of the Divibuilder of Elegant Themes are without a doubt the ease with which you can work, the versatility of modules that you can use, the ability to export and import parts of websites into other websites. Other notable points are the use of open source photos in the ready-to-install demos, the beautiful demos themselves, but also the history editor (which Thrive also has), the new Woobuilder and A-B testing. Divi has so much that I am probably forgetting something now, but be patient because I will return to everything in detail in a moment.
Divi is a bestseller theme with one of the best page builders that one can find. If you become a member of Elegant Themes, you can randomly choose the complete theme with pagebuilder or use the pagebuilder in any theme because the DiviBuilder works flawlessly in any other theme. The Divi page builder is suitable for laymen to professionals and everything in between. The page builder works very precisely in both front and back end. There are a lot of options and modules that you can use, but this is not a problem for beginners, you don't have to use them all, people learn by doing.
Divi Theme builder
Starting from Divi 2.7 THE DIVI BUILDER already had a front-end front-end page builder which has been continuously improved to this day. Now with version 4 we are also talking about a theme builder since everything can now be adjusted, saved, exported and imported. Think of complete pages and posts of every type (404, portfolio, footers, headers and the like).
Other top Pagebuilder
The Divi drag & drop page builder, just like that of ELEMENTOR, creates new pages and posts for you in an easy and clear way. These page builders are known in the theme world as the cream of the crop. Here we compare these two top page builders in an article.
Divi 4.0 Review video
To quickly get an impression of the improvements since Divi 4.0, it is a good idea to quickly watch the video below, which takes 4 minutes.
Divi vs WP Bakery Pagebuilder: Drag & Drop
Elements can be dragged within the editor using drag & drop, sections can be scaled (also with your mouse) and so you quickly build the layout for your page that you had in mind. (shown in video)
Divi Fonts and Text Styling
Being able to adjust more than 600 different fonts in every possible way? This is possible with the Divi text editor. Almost as many options as in a program like Photoshop. There are more page builders with good editors, but the Divi editor is the crown here.
A problem in the past when creating shops with Woocommerce was always that one had to have a good dose of HTML and CSS knowledge to style the pages, buttons, prices, etc. exactly as they wanted to see it. With the new WooBuilder in Divi that is no longer the case. The page builder can be used for this with zero coding knowledge.
The Divi WYSIWYG front-end page builder gives you a perfect picture of what your site will look like via a live preview. Apart from the fact that with this page builder you can click and drag everything such as sections, columns, but also all modules, you have access to no less than 600+ Google fonts. Of course, unique fonts can also be entered, but that seems hardly necessary to me with so much choice from different fonts.
Divi revisies editor
The top page builders are not satisfied with the standard Wordpress revisions editor and Divi has had its own system for this, which indeed works much better. You can use this to go back to previous versions of your work. The Elementor pagebuilder also has a revisions manager.
Divi content modules
Of course you have all standard content modules available such as buttons, text, photo galleries, images and the like. In addition, sliders, price tables, sliders, reviews, portfolios and much more so that you do not have to install extra plug-ins for this. Product presentation, single products and the like from Woocommerce can also be used easily.
Divi pagebuilder vs Thrive architect review: Pre-made layouts and templates
Divi offers you more than 800 ready-made pages and 100+ complete website demos. You can use this unlimitedly and combine with it. By working with ready-made material you save a lot of work. Nowadays, all premium themes offer these ready-made layouts and sites. For example the Be Theme is very extreme here and offers no less than 550+ complete demo sites and wins a big win in this area against both of our candidates here.
Install the demo material you want to use with a few simple clicks and then start to give it your own branding by replacing the texts and photos and adding other own items such as videos, logos and address details. In no time you have built your own website that you can save in the back-end or export to your PC so that you can never lose your work again.
Ready-made portfolio lay-outs
Present the work of your company in one of the beautiful portfolio styles that Divi has to offer. Divi has a good number of ready-made portfolio layouts that will make your presentation stand out well. Elegant Themes always announces new layouts on their blog in advance. In our Divi vs Thrive Architect comparison, Divi scores better here.
Open-source photos means that they can be used freely. If you install a demo at Divi, it contains the same photos as the photos in the demo on their website. That is certainly not the case with all themes today. If you really have to replace all the photos, it will take a lot of work. Divi also has a library with photo material that you can use to make an extra effort.
Divi Leads AB-testing
As far as I know, Thrive Architect is the only page builder that offers a split test tool alongside Divi. In the case of Thrive, you do pay extra for what is not the case with Divi. With this tool you create 2 different versions of pages or parts of pages, texts or buttons. These are then displayed alternately to your audience and after a short time you can see which of the 2 versions has a better effect. An unmistakable tool for SEO specialists and companies looking for a high conversion. Both page builders therefore have this tool.
Divi Leads is also very popular with affiliate marketers because conversion is at the top. If you have a blog with advertisements on which you are commissioning, this tool can considerably increase your monthly turnover. Speculating what works better is a thing of the past, Divi Leads simply gives you the hard facts.
Divi: Theme options
The theme options have at DIVI a completely own panel. Everything has been thought of, you can't think of it that way or you can set it here. All premium themes have a similar panel nowadays but Divi takes the crown in terms of versatility.
Export/import between different websites
This function is a way for people with multiple websites or pro-web designers not to have to do work over and over again. With Divi you can install complete designs, settings, pages, headers, footers, and everything else you want to copy at lightning speed on different websites by means of exporting and importing the items.
Divi prices for a membership
An Elegant Themes membership costs $ 89 a year, sometimes there are offers then it is slightly cheaper. You will not only get the Divi Theme for this, but also the great magazine theme the Extra Theme plus another 86 premium themes from their collection. Also included are plug-ins and PSD material.
A lifelong membership for $ 249 is what many people use. You will then pay nothing for the rest of your life and have unlimited access to all future upgrades and support. The 30-day money-back guarantee gives you the opportunity to try Divi for a month without running any risk.
WP BAKERY PAGEBUILDER (Divi vs Bakery Pagebuilder)
In this Divi vs WP Bakery Pagebuilder comparison we will now continue with the last mentioned page builder. It was actually installed on websites 4,300,000 times. That's much more common than Divi, but we must remember that WP Bakery Pagebuilder existed a few years longer and was the only real page builder at the time.
WP Bakery PageBuilder rating
The plug-in has been sold since 05-2011 on the CodeCanyon marketplace (Envato). Over the years, it was sold there 391,000 times. A valuation was given by 21,258 buyers. The average score is 4.64 out of 5. A good score at first sight. Do you know why the WP Bakery PageBuilder was installed so much more often than it was sold? For years, this page builder has been integrated into a number of well-selling Wordpress themes with which deals were closed.
That's also how I once got to know it. I have always appreciated the presence of the WP Bakery PageBuilder in themes as it worked much better than with the standard WP editor. if that is still the case I will return to my final conclusion at the end of this WP Bakery PageBuilder review.
Front- and Back-end editor
WP Bakery PageBuilder has both a front and a backend editor. The front-end editor can be improved quite a bit if I compare it with other editors like Divi or Elementor. The dragging of elements and certainly between the different columns is sometimes a bit stiff, I noticed.
The back-end editor, on the other hand, is a very nice tool for building the pages well and quickly. By the way, you can switch between front and backend as often as you like. It is important to save everything before the switch or you will lose the work you have done.
WP Bakery Pagebuilder Elements
The page builder has many different elements that you can use. To have even more elements, various plugins are available that can be used for this, such as Extensions Add-on. By the way, there are many video, form and other add-on plugins for WP Bakery Pagebuilder for sale on the same website.
WP Bakery Pagebuilder + Woocommerce
Like any good page builder, WP Bakery Pagebuilder is ready to work with the popular webshop plugin Woocommerce. Not only that, there are many extra elements especially for Woocommerce in the editor, which can be seen in the image below.
Demo lay-outs and templates
Demos are integrated in the page builder with which you can create all kinds of pages. Very handy not to have to start from scratch. Most themes already offer ready-made demo sites but one can never have enough starting material.
WP Bakery Pagebuilder: Pricing
The page builder costs $ 64, and to increase half a year of support to a year you add another $ 23. That is exactly the price for which you have a Divi membership, a much better page builder that is considered by many to be the best there is. The price for WP Bakery Pagebuilder is far too high in my opinion. By the way, in a Divi membership you get not only a page builder but 86+ premium themes including Divi itself, the best-selling and popularist theme ever and many elite plug-ins.
WP Bakery Pagebuilder: Evaluation
The WP Bakery Pagebuilder may be installed on many sites, this is mainly the case because it was one of the first page builders and because of the contracts with many themes in which you get the page builder for free. In principle, it is a solid page builder that works well, but it is expensive and outdated. There are much better page builders where you also get a much better deal. In any case, read my article about the best Wordpress page builders right now before you buy the WP Bakery Pagebuilder.
Divi-Builder vs WP Bakery Page Builder Conclusion
First of all, thank you for reading my Divi-Builder vs WP Bakery PageBuilder comparison to the end. If we compare the two, the DiviBuilder is probably the best page builder out there for Wordpress, and WP Bakery Pagebuilder really can't be compared with it. Also as discussed above there is a big difference in price vs product comparison, Divi offers so much more. Let me stick to that so as not to undermine the WP Bakery PageBuilder too much.
