3-Things-to-Consider-Before-Diving-Into-Page-BuildersThere’s an off-chance you’re here because you’ve heard that PBS is quite possibly one of the quickest shortcuts to site building. While page builders, in general, exist to make things easier, there are still a few things you might want to take into account before diving deeper into this particular realm of WordPress development.

Learning WordPress: A Crucial Page Builder Prerequisite

This is probably the most obvious item on this list, but still the most important one. Page Builders aren’t quite purchasable on their own, unfortunately. They come in the form of plugins in WordPress, which you’ll need to install and learn in order to manipulate. Rest assured that WordPress is one of the easiest and most legitimate ways to create a website. You won’t regret knowing something technical, considering the age we are in right now. There is a difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, and  knowing which one caters to your need saves time too!

If you’re a little intimidated by the abundance of some of the technical terms in this article, though, fret not. There are few helpful sites you can visit to help get you started. Some of these areWordPress Codex, and Treehouse. It houses WordPress tips  and website building, depending on your need and level of knowledge.

You might want to test out the waters first, just to be sure

It’s always a good idea to give free and/or trial versions a go before making any huge purchases you might end up regretting in the future. Thankfully, most page builders come with free/demo versions. Of course, we could also look into  a ton of reliable reviews about page builders while otherscompares and contrasts  page builders.  Make sure to weigh in your options carefully!

Aside from going through articles and reviews, one of the things we like about WordPress is that it has a huge community behind it. There are individuals, teams, and even businesses, willing to lend a helping hand their fellow WordPress users, especially new ones like you! The community basically works on a pay-it-forward scheme than a give-and-take.

Designs make a huge difference

WordPress Enthusiast Donna Fontenot Cavalier makes a very good point regarding drag and drop Page Builders, and the importance of basic design. While drag-and-drop builders like PBS can save you a lot of time, basic know-how and at least some familiarity in aesthetics is another crucial thing to consider when creating websites. Imagine a scenario– let’s say you get your hands on a nifty page builder of your choice: that’s great! But then let’s say you’re a person who doesn’t exactly have the best eye for art, design and functionality: uh-oh.

Don’t worry, though. Page Builder Sandwich isn’t just a Page Builder; our team is also dedicated to giving other WordPress users a hand, too.

  1. Hi
    Does your application make blocks out of a section of a website?
    I like a section of a wp website and am having trouble coping.
    I bought that theme, but I just want to use the block elsewhere.
    Can I do that with your program?
    I already bought your program, if it’s not something that your application can do, would you mind suggesting another free wp plugin? I like scrapbook for firefox, but unfortunately is not longer compatible with the new version of firefox.

    Thank you

    P.S. Please see link below. I wanted to copy that section with the light blue animated Octagons, and perhaps make it a block, so I can reuse in other work.
