Hardcore WordPress users often scoff at the idea of using page builders. If you have access to a programmer or professional team, you probably don’t need one. But if you want to manage your site without needing to know PHP or the WordPress Codex, page builders are a great option.
Today we’re going to compare two of the most popular and easy-to-use, professional-level page builders available for WordPress. If you love how easily pages can be managed and built with Squarespace and Wiix, then you’ll love these plugins.
Overall, page builders provide outstanding ease-of-use and infinite customization options. As far as we’re concerned it’s really a matter of preference.
Some Basic Comparisons
First, Divi has enhanced just about every module they have to bring every modern feature that you would come to expect. On top of that, they have released a new template manager and a gazillion templates to go along with it.
Elementor, on the other hand, built an entire “Theme Builder” so you can use it to design headers / footers / post templates, and much more. Also the recently added a powerful popup builder and motion engine.
In the past 12 months, Divi seems to have its own focus but at the same time is always playing catchup with Elementor. Whatever comes to Elementor, Divi is sure to eventually build, including the “Theme Builder”.
The decision between Elementor and Divi is going to come down to 2 things, cost & ease of use. Divi costs less but lacks a theme builder & popups (if that matters to you), and has a much steeper learning curve.
