ELEMENTOR REVIEW (Elementor vs UX-Builder)
Elementor is now more than just one of the best page builders...
The Elementor page builder can be used in any theme. Elementor has its own theme which you can download for free, The Hello theme. Elementor itself houses more than 300 ready-made demos from which you can start your work, that's as good as the best themes. You don't need another theme with Elementor. The own Hello theme is more than enough.
In this Elementor review we discuss the very latest improvements that make the theme/pagebuilder score in the top. Elementor only came on the market in 2016 and has already been installed on more than 8 million sites, which is of course noticeable. This is not just a page builder but a tuned drag & drop tool to build websites very quickly and easily.
ELEMENTOR PAGEBUILDER REVIEW
Watch the clip below, it will probably give you a taste of how you can get started with the editor/page builder yourself. Here you can find all info about Elementor's Editor.
This brand new tool can be used as a dock on the right of the screen or can float anywhere in your worksheet. Simply right-click an element or block on your worksheet and select "Navigator" to open it. The Navigator significantly increases the enjoyment of work and the speed at which one can work. Watch here a video and more info about the Navigator.
ELEMENTOR SAVE WORK
Who wants to do the same task over and over again? Elementor allows you to save work blocks and reuse them on other pages, posts, and even other websites. That way you save a lot of time if we compare it with how people used to work. The animation below gives a reasonable idea of what to expect.
READY-TO-USE DEMO DESIGNS
We discuss the top features of the Elementor page builder. The beautiful demo designs are certainly part of this. Earlier I told you that Elementor is basically just a theme because of the wide choice of demo material that you can use as the start for your website.
Similar to Divi there are plenty of 200+ layouts available for all possible niches. Think of corporate, web shops, the hotel industry, gyms, cafe, fashion, hosting, photography, architecture, lifestyle, travel and fashion. There are also many third parties that build beautiful layouts for Elementor. You can also use such a layout as a start for your work, but you will of course have extra costs. View here the complete library of layouts.
ELEMENTOR WOOCOMMERCE BUILDER
Elementor, like most top themes, is perfect for building webshops. Product pages and category pages of Woocommerce can be beautifully styled. In the past, quite a bit of HTML knowledge was needed for customizing shop pages, that has become a thing of the past. We assume you know Woocommerce, it is by far the most used shop plugin for Wordpress. Watch here a video and more info about the Woocommerce Builder.
ELEMENTOR REVISIONS EDITOR
Elementor, like other elite page builders, was less pleased with the revision editor included in Wordpress and decided to release its own improved version. I completely agree that the default Wordpress editor for revisions is worthless, that was always an eyesore when you had to put something back. Also Divi and Thrive have this tool. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor Revisions Editor.
ELEMENTOR REVIEW: MOBILE EDITING
Everything can be set separately with Elementor for mobile, tablet and desktop as you can see above. Of course Elementor is "out-of-the-box" responsive, but it is always nice to be able to make targeted adjustments for a certain device if necessary. However, all top themes and page builders also have this. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Mobile Editing.
We give a perfect score in our Elementor review here to the color editor for texts, which is practically as beautiful as in a PC software like Photoshop. According to Elementor themselves, they are currently the only one that has "pixel perfect design". You can use all possible colors out there and also create gradients with them. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Color Picker.
ELEMENTOR HEADER & FOOTER
Total control over all headers and footers within your website. All elite page builders can do this, but it is an important tool to have in a theme. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Header-Footer Builder.
ELEMENTOR BASIC ELEMENTS
ELEMENTOR PRO ELEMENTS
ELEMENTOR THEME ELEMENTS
The building blocks for the layout of your pages are the elements and Elementor offers very a lot of. Let's say practically everything has been thought of. Elementor even has pop-ups included as standard and very nice ones too, so forget about your pop-up plug-in from now on. You no longer need it. View here the complete info on all 90+ Elementor Widgets.
Beautiful pop-ups, easy to set up too, a wonderful tool. The top page builders copy everything from each other. The popups are perfect for call-to-action and conversion purposes. View here all info about Elementor's popups.
ELEMENTOR REVIEW: PRICING
The prices for Elementor can be found here in the image above. In terms of quality, Elementor is worth triple its money, especially if we compare it with other premium themes that offer much less and are also even more expensive. View the pricing page here. Sometimes there are discounts.
If you still have a few questions about Elementor, you might find them quickly answered in the more-than-organized Elementor Academy.
ZION-BUILDER (Elementor vs Zion-Builder)
The Zion-Builder has been around for years in the Kallyas Theme. I have been working with this theme for about 8 years because it is one of the best themes for building webshops. Knowing the Zion-Builder without having to research it, I can immediately say that the page builder is great. Zion-Builder is available as a free and a premium version.
ZION-BUILDER PAGEBUILDER REVIEW
The Zion builder is a responsive front-end page builder. Through my personal years of experience with this page builder I can immediately tell you that it works very precisely. Let's say if you want to build a work of art and the placement of elements comes down to millimeters, the Zion-Builder is ideal for that.
The builders of the theme have about 8 different videos available to quickly get acquainted with this product and as support for its users. You can find all the video Zion-Builder offers here on the page.
ZION-BUILDER REVIEW: ELEMENTS
The Zion-Builder counts all together 45+ widgets (also called elements). This is a reasonable number, page builders like UX-Builder and Brizy offer the same numbers. I show some of these widgets below, if you want to see them all go to this page.
ZION BUILDER'S EDITOR
Zion-Builder is an inline text editor which means you can write directly on the page where you want as shown below. This is simply one of the most advanced editors even if it isn't really well known yet.
ZION-BUILDER: TEMPLATES LIBRARY
We're talking about a library full of pre-processed sections for call-to-cation items, forms, popups, and more. You can add these items to your page with 1 click and adapt them to your house style and data. The library features 150+ items. Well, there are both themes and page builders who offer 800+ of these, but given the young age of Zion-Builder it is a nice number.
It is a bit more difficult to calculate speed with page builders than with themes. You can test the Zion Builder free here and see if the speed suits you. What we can do here is check the speed of the page on which the page builder is sold. The results of this test at GtMetrix are below. These are very good numbers which means to me that their programmers know all about optimizing for speed.
ZION-BUILDER: THEME BUILDER
Like the best-selling page builders like Elementor, Zion-Builder has a Theme Builder. Allows you to customize parts of the layout that should look the same on all pages. This includes the footer, the header and any additional sections that you want to see on all pages.
Zion-Builder originally comes from a theme that was designed for e-commerce purposes. In the page builder you therefore have a large number of Woocommerce widgets. Zion-Builder also has a Woocommerce-Builder that makes styling product pages, cart pages and the like very easy.
ZION-BUILDER AND KALLYAS
Of course, as mentioned before, you get the Zion-Builder in the Kallyas Theme. Kallyas is an excellent theme that has been developed for years and therefore has few bugs. This theme is at its best when it comes to creating E-commerce websites. The advantage of buying the Kallyas Theme is that you get many more.
ZION-BUILDER REVIEW PRICING
The Zion-Builder offers very reasonable prices. At the time of writing there was just an offer, you just have to be lucky of course. The standard prices are next to it. The page builder is also worth its money just at the normal price as far as I'm concerned.
ZION-BUILDER REVIEW CONCLUSION
I had already given a few comments right at the beginning as I am very familiar with this product. The Zionbuilder works very precisely, quickly and what was often pleasant for me in combination with the Kallyas Theme is the ease with which I could use a different header on every page without that this took a lot of time. Definitely recommended, although there are more good pagebuilders.
ELEMENTOR VS ZION-BUILDER CONCLUSION
Thank you for reading my Elementor vs Zion-Builder comparison to the end. Although Divi is probably an even better page builder, Elementor and Zion-Builder are the 2 page builders I work and have worked with a lot. Let's just say Elementor is just a lot better, but Zion-Builder is also a lot of fun to work with. Everyone has their own preference based on their experiences. Both are top page builders and definitely recommended.
