WP Bakery PageBuilder review - 4.3 million times installed
This page builder was actually installed 4,300,000 times on websites. I thought it was worth writing a WP Bakery PageBuilder review. The question is whether this plug-in can compete with the top page builders in 2020.
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. I will tell you if that is still the case in 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 review: 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 review: Evaluation
First of all, thank you for reading my WP Bakery Pagebuilder review to the end. 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 at the moment before you buy the WP Bakery Pagebuilder.
