    Hi there,

    Page builders are becoming better and better everyday! I remember testing the first ones out, wow, the difference with the ones today (ElegantThemes, but also on CodeCanyon: some very nice ones).

    Thing is, I still find it easier to do it the old way, I must be getting old myself!

    I find myself spending more time trying to figure out how to do such and such with the Page builder than I would if I were doing it manually. At least, that's how I look at it.

    Cheers,

    John

    Not a big fan of visual composer, kind of a bulky program in my opinion. Thrive page builder is my favorite so far- it's light weight, plenty of content design options, gets the job done.

    This GUI tools are good for newbie but honestly they will slow down your website & will generate crappy code (not good for SEO). Just my thought.

    I like VC, but it's huge heavy plugin. More simple is free Site Origin (works based on widgets)

    Visual composer is a boss, trust me on that. Best page builder plugin, also due to the flexibility it has, and there are plenty of plugins for it too to be able to extend it's capability. Avoid at all cost themes which have their own page builders that are fairly new, as these are packed with bugs, I've had a few themes I've purchased with those issues.

    VC 5/5

    I've used Visual Composer for a Newspaper theme, very powerful, easy drag and drop and very customizable.
