Similar to Beaver Builder, this plugin utilizes a drag-and-drop editor that allows you to see everything your site’s visitors will see. Both page builders feature similar interfaces with three elements, but Elementor has more options.
Elementor’s free version also offers many more functions than Beaver Builder Lite — it contains over 40 widgets (modules) and more than 30 templates. The paid versions also feature a theme editor, like Beaver Themer. However, they include this feature in their core package instead of making it a paid add-on.
As a whole, Elementor provides many more options, templates, and widgets, giving you more options for customization but possibly making it a slightly less beginner-friendly choice.
Elegant Themes developed Divi, a WordPress theme with an integrated page builder. Although the builder comes bundled with the Divi Theme, it is actually possible to use it with any theme you like.
This page builder plugin features nine more modules than Beaver Builder, several more customization options, and over 1,000 pre-made layouts.
An Elegant Themes membership only costs $89 a year and includes access to all of their products. However, it might take you longer to locate specific tools or even add new modules when using Divi. You should also note that this page builder doesn’t leave behind clean code should you deactivate it.
WPBakery is a very popular WordPress page builder plugin claiming over 4,000,000 users.
It offers both a front-end and back-end editor and supports hundreds of add-ons you can use to expand the builder’s functionality. It also provides more than 60 layouts and over 50 content blocks.
This plugin has only one license that costs $45 per site, so it is an affordable option for those who only wish to build pages for a few websites. However, Beaver Builder’s unlimited site licenses are more cost-efficient if you are designing many sites.
WPBakery’s visual editor may not be as user-friendly as Beaver Builder’s drag-and-drop interface. Still, this plugin offers a solid option for people who prefer to work in the back-end, and it also comes at a very reasonable price, considering all of its features.
