WP-Bakery vs UX-Builder Test  💥
Today we are concerned with the comparison between WP-Bakery vs UX-Builder. UX-Builder comes for free with the Flatsome Theme, WP-Bakery is one of the best known page builders that have many other premium themes in them as standard. I'll start with WP-Bakery Pagebuilder but this is an arbitrary choice and doesn't automatically mean it would be better.
WP-BAKERY (WP-Bakery vs UX-Builder)
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 .
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
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.
UX-BUILDER (WP-Bakery vs UX-Builder)
The UX-Builder is an astonishingly good page builder that you may not know about yet. The page builder is not sold separately as a plugin, at least not yet and is therefore only known to those who know the Flatsome Theme. This high-scoring theme is sold through the infamous Themeforest marketplace. You can read my review for the Flatsome Theme here.
UX-BUILDER PAGEBUILDER REVIEW
The UX builder is a responsive front-end page builder, which means that you can work directly on the page, and that for all devices, so mobile, tablet and desktop. Similar page builders are the best out there like Divi, Elementor, Brizy and Beaverbuilder. To work with this kind of page builders absolutely no real web designer skills are needed, they are suitable for everyone. There are of course minor differences between these page builders, so getting used to a new page builder is definitely a process that you have to go through.
The builders of the theme have about 15 different videos available to quickly get acquainted with this product and as support for its users. You can click the blue button with "Preview Item" here on the page to view all find these videos quickly. I will present the most important of these below.
UX-BUILDER REVIEW: ELEMENTS
Themes often advertise about the many elements contained in them, in reality these elements (also called widgets) belong to the page builder. The UX-Builder has about 45 elements in total, a nice number. This includes call-to-action buttons, headings, video, image, sliders, team, counters, and so on. There are page builders with an even greater number of elements, but 45 is already quite a lot. The UX-Builder does not have what is the case with a page builder like Elementor that there are many third parties are those extra elements for sale for sale.
UX-BUILDER: GRIDS (DRAG & DROP)
The UX-Builder offers many special features such as the drag and drop grid builder. Your photo grids can be built very quickly in this way, much faster than before. There are also many options such as zoom as shown below.
The same goes for the slider and banner building system built into the UX-Builder. It all works beautifully, in no time you have put together beautiful sliders. This feature also works with drag & drop.
Although people don't notice this too much, the UX-Builder is built on shortcodes. This makes the editor very fast to work with. An example of what the code looks like is shown below. Of course, it is difficult to switch to another editor since they do not understand the shortcodes produced by Flatsome. However, this applies to most page builders.
UX-BUILDER AND FLATSOME
Of course, as stated before, you get the UX-Builder in the Flatsome Theme. Week after week, this theme takes second place on Themeforest for best-selling themes. So we are dealing here with the combination of a good page builder with a very good theme. There are of course many more advantages to this theme, such as a huge library with demo sections and websites, mega menus and of course not to forget that the theme loads quickly and is perfect for building webshops with Woocommerce. You can read more about the Flatsome Theme here.
UX-BUILDER REVIEW PRICING
A bit of a disadvantage of the theme is that it is not sold via their own website, where they could in principle give big discounts like many other themes do. It is sold through the Themeforest marketplace. The take a lot of money for the mediation which is not really fair and oblige the themes to require a separate expensive license for every website of yours on which you would like to use the theme. This quickly becomes quite expensive.
UX-BUILDER REVIEW CONCLUSION
The UX-Builder is a very good page builder that with some extra work could possibly be sold as a plugin such as Brizy, not the best but certainly good to mention. The number of elements it contains is quite high and the code in which it is written is good and fast. If you want to work with the UX-Builder, you must purchase the Flatsome Theme.
My advice regarding WP-Bakery vs UX-Builder
First off, thank you for reading my WP Bakery vs UX-Builder review to the end. The WP-Bakery page builder is one of the first good page builders and is still very okay. This page builder is available as a plugin to install it in any theme. There are also many extra plugins available to expand the number of widgets. That's all great, but despite that, the UX-Builder is much more modern and, in my opinion, better. The disadvantage of the UX-Builder is of course that it can only be used with the Flatsome Theme.
If you're willing to incur some expense to work with a good editor, it's best to get Elementor Pro or buy the Divi Theme, with the Divi Builder (page builder) already in it. This is the cream of the crop in this field and you will not regret it.
