Beaver Builder - WordPress Page Builder

Visit home page

Easily build beautiful, responsive WordPress pages in minutes. Beaver Builder is a drag and drop WordPress Page Builder. Get it now!

Beaver Builder offers a theme with the plugin baked in, or the standalone plugin (well, you get both when you purchase a license). They also offer a lite version in the official WordPress plugin repository, but it's a pretty cut down version, and doesn't give you enough functionality really.

It's a nice page builder, and doesn't litter your code with shortcodes (which would make it difficult to remove) like some other page builders.


The Divi Builder written by Elegant Themes was originally just a part of the Divi theme, but has since been separated out into a standalone plugin (thankfully, because cleaning up all the shortcodes if you wanted to switch themes was a pain!).

There's quite a bit of flexibility for building layouts and pages, including (currently) 46 content elements.

Being Elegant Themes, you don't just buy the plugin, you buy access to all of their themes / plugins on a yearly basis. As we're talking about the plugin here, you'd need the developers licence, which currently runs at $89/yr.

Parallax Gravity offers a free version via the official plugin repository, or a pro version at CodeCanyon.


Velocity Page is written by Mark Jaquith, one of the lead developers on the WordPress core team, and so has a good pedigree.

This is another 100% front end inline page builder, so much like wysiwyg editors you get to see how your changes will look as you make them.
