WP-Bakery vs Fusion-Builder Test  💥
Today we are concerned with the comparison between WP-Bakery vs Fusion-Builder. Fusion-Builder comes for free with the Avada 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 Fusion-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.
FUSION-BUILDER (WP-Bakery vs Fusion-Builder)
The Fusion-Builder has been around for years in the Avada Theme. Although the page builder would certainly be suitable for use as a separate plugin in other themes, that has still not happened. I don't think the contracts they have with Envato allow that though the Fusion Builder could be sold as a plugin through that same marketplace. Well, if you want to work with the Fusion-Builder you need the Avada Theme.
The Fusion builder is a responsive front-end page builder. The page builder works accurately, quickly and well, there is nothing else to say about it. In their own words, Fusion-Builder is the best Front-end Editor. I doubt that very much because in the first place they all say that but I have experience with practically all top page builders and certainly know better ones. I do want to say right away that Fusion-Builder is definitely participating in the top.
FUSION-BUILDER REVIEW: ELEMENTS
The Fusion-Builder counts all together 70+ widgets (also called elements). This is a large number because popular page builders like UX-Builder and Brizy only offer around 45+. I show some of these widgets below, if you want to see them all go to this page.
Fusion-Builder is an inline text editor which means you can write directly on the page wherever you want as shown below. Nowadays all top page builders have such a text editor, but Fusion-Builder also has what it takes to keep up with the top.
FUSION-BUILDER MOBILE EDITING
Fusion-Builder can be used to work on websites via mobile. Despite everything working properly, I would never do this because it is very inconvenient compared to working via desktop. An exception would be if I was on the road and suddenly noticed errors in an important site. All top page builders can do this by the way.
FUSION-BUILDER: TEMPLATES LIBRARY
We are talking about a library of over 120+ pre-processed sections and elements. In addition, Avada also offers 85+ complete demo websites. This is something that both good themes and page builders have in their arsenal these days. However, the numbers at Avada are quite large.
It is a bit more difficult to calculate speed with page builders than with themes. What we can do here is check the speed of the Fusion builders theme website. The results of this test at GtMetrix are below. These are very good numbers which means to me that their programmers know a lot about optimizing for speed.
FUSION-BUILDER & WOOCOMMERCE
Like the best-selling page builders like Elementor Fusion-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.
FUSION-BUILDER & AVADA THEME
Of course, as mentioned before, you get the Fusion-Builder in the Avada Theme. Not me personally, but there are quite a few people who think that it is one of the best Wordpress themes. It must be said that the theme is certainly not bad and very versatile. It offers a dashboard with maybe 1000 settings, pop ups, everything can be customized, most things can be styled by yourself such as search pages, 404 pages, footers, headers, and portfolio post layouts. If you work with the Fusion-Builder, you automatically have all of that included. Read all about the Avada Theme here.
FUSION-BUILDER REVIEW CONCLUSION
Despite the fact that the page builder is quite okay, the price is very high, namely 60 dollars per website on which you want to install it. That is unfortunately the case with everything that is sold through Themeforest. Definitely recommended, but expensive and of course there are better pagebuilders than Fusion.
WP-BAKERY VS FUSION-BUILDER CONCLUSION
First of all, thank you for reading my WP-Bakery vs Fusion-Builder comparison to the end. WP-Bakery has been around for a long time, but still has a lot of fans. I myself have a lot with this page builder and everything works properly, it is just a standard good page builder. It is mainly a matter of taste with which page builder one prefers to work. Both page builders are no DiviBuilder of course, but one can easily build beautiful websites with it.
