Best Page Builder Friendly Themes
Why I choose these two themes ?
Both of these two themes are highly customizable. From blog header to blog footer every portion you can edit or customize in this theme. And a page builder with these two theme is just icing on cake.
Using pagebuilder you can set header and footer different on different page. It’s just an example, using their custom layout and hooks you can design your theme as you want.
Page builders that’s are generally use with astra pro and GeneratePress pro are Thrive Architect, Elementor and Beaver Builder.
Note – Both Astra and GeneratePress themes are available in wordpress directory for free. But in FREE version you will not get access of custom layout, Header and footer customization section, hooks, pre build templates and many more.
Elementor is one of the most used free page builder in wordpress users. According to wordpress.org elementor free plugin is active on 1 million plus websites.
which clearly shows how good is this plugin / pagebuilder.
its a live page builder which give you ultimate power to tweak your blog header, menu to footer section. In one word you can change every portion of your blog.
But there is a huge difference between elemetor free and premium pack. In elementor free pack you can only access 28 different widgets. But if you are using elementor pro you will get more that 50+ widgets and 300+ predefine templates.

Thrive architect is one of my favorite pagebuilder among all others page builder. Even I use thrive architect most of site. Recently I move some of my site from thrive architect to elementor pro. because of some special features that I missed in my architect plugin. Don’t forget to read my thrive architect vs elementor comparison.
But still thrive architect has some features that you might miss on elementor pro. Its purely depends on your requirements.
I have been using thirve architect ( aka thrive content builder) from 2015 and I can cleary says thrive architect plugin is best when you want to create sales page, conversion focus page or lead generation page.
Thrive architect has more that 150+ predefine template and 50+ widget blocks.
Thrive Architect Plugin Features
Beaver builder user interface is quite unique compare to other pagebuilders. Like divi and brizy pagebuilder in beaver builder you will get inline content editing. Even using beaver builder you can create custom header, footer and blog layout.
Two of my favorite theme providers also choose elementor and beaver builder as their favorite builder.
MotoPress Content Editor
Motopress content editor have much more features than site origin and gutenberg editor. with their free plugin you will get access 30+ build in content element.
They also offer some separate addon package for extra features like white label, video addon, pricing table addon, simple contact form addon, image hotspot addon, count down addon any many more.
Recently launched Brizy page builder plugin is one of my favorite free page builder plugin after elementor. If you want to design your blog without investing any money on pagebuilder then you should try brizy. It’s has almost all the elements that you need to design your blog no need to pay anything for that all elements are free.
Not only elements even this free pagebuilder is loaded with 100+ free predesigned blocks. which definitely help you design any website quickly.
Cornerstone one of the most selling page builder on codecanyon after visual composer. You can buy this plugin separately or you can buy their X theme ( cornerstone is free with X theme). Cornerstone builder is loaded with 40+ different element and you can use this plugin on any theme.
WPBakery Page Builder ( Formerly Visual Composer)
If elementor is the most used free page builder then wp bakery page builder is the most used premium page builder. They claim more than 2 million + websites are powered by wp bakery page builder where 300k+ direct sale from codecanyon. and huge no of available premium addons in themeforest market make this plugin ultimate page builder.
Using wp bakery page builder you can design your blog from frontend or backend ( back end means in wordpress dashboard). But due to huge no of widgets and heavy customization options newbies can trouble to find their needed design.
I give this plugin 90% rating because of its complicated design interference and lack of designing option in wp bakery page builder plugin ( with wp bakery page builder plugin you have to buy some other addons to get complete customization ability).
