What are the differences between WPBakery and the new Visual Composer? The primary distinction is that the former is a page builder, whereas the latter is a website builder.
WPBakery customizes the content section of your WordPress pages. On the other hand, Visual Composer allows you to design your entire website, including the headers, footers, and sidebars. It includes over 300 content elements, and new templates are added weekly.
However, all of these features are stored in the cloud instead of in separate add-ons. Therefore, you can customize your user experience without making additional purchases.
This website builder also includes several user-friendly features, such as keyboard shortcuts, copying/pasting options, and undo/redo revisions.
Beaver Builder is another page builder for WordPress. Unlike WPBakery, there is no back-end editor.
Beaver Builder features a drag-and-drop block editor with undo/redo revisions and is well-known for its intuitive and easy-to-learn interface. It offers fewer elements and templates than WPBakery — there are around 30 modules and 50+ layout templates.
It is a more expensive option and requires yearly payments. However, all the Beaver Builder pricing models let you use the plugin on an unlimited number of sites.
It is also one of the few that leaves clean code when disabled, it will still remove the previous styling, but you're pages won't be a mess of shortcodes that some of the other plugins leave.
Divi is an all-in-one theme, page builder, and theme builder.
Like WPBakery, Divi’s page builder features both front-end and back-end editing. However, its front-end drag-and-drop builder provides inline editing, real-time previews, and the ability to undo and redo changes.
The page builder also features 46 modules with a wide variety of customization options that give you complete control over their appearances. You can also split-test different aspects of your website using Divi Leads.
With over 1,600 page layouts and 222 layout packs to choose from, you will be able to find templates that fit your websites.
A yearly payment will give you access to an Elegant Themes membership that includes Divi and a number of other products, which you can use on unlimited sites.
