The page builder interface.
Powerful widget insert dialog with groups and search.
Live Editor that lets you change your content in real time.
Undo changes with the History Browser.
Row Builder that gives unlimited flexibility.
How do I move a site created with Page Builder from one server to another?
We recommend the duplicator plugin. We’ve tested it in several instances and it always works well with Page Builder data.
Can I bundle Page Builder with my theme?
Yes, provided your theme is licensed under GPL or a compatible license. If you’re publishing your theme on ThemeForest, you must select the GPL license instead of their regular license.
Page Builder is actively developed and updated, so generally I’d recommend that you have your users install the original plugin so they can receive updates. You can try TGM Plugin Activation.
Will plugin X work with Page Builder?
We’ve tried to ensure that Page Builder is compatible with most plugin widgets. It’s best to just download Page Builder and test for yourself.
