If you’re running a WordPress website, chances are you’ve heard of page builders. Page builders are WordPress plugins that allow you to create custom pages and posts without having to write any code.
There are tons of page builder plugins out there, but two of the most popular are Elementor and Bricks Builder. I tried both page builders and tell you my experience in this article.
Elementor vs Bricks Builder: a quick comparison
Ease of use: Elementor is widely considered to be the easier of the two page builders to use. This is because it features a drag-and-drop interface that makes it easy to add and rearrange elements on a page.
Features: Both Elementor and Bricks Builder offer a wide range of features. However, Elementor currently offers more features as it’s way longer on the market.
Pricing: Elementor starts at $59 per year for 1 website. Bricks costs $99 1-time payment for 1 website.
Customer support: Both Elementor and Bricks Builder offer excellent customer support.
Compatibality: Elementor wins this clearly, as it’s compatibable with basically any plugin on WordPress. Bricks is still behind and lacks compatibality for example with Polylang and WPML
My experience with both page builders
Both Elementor and Bricks Builder are great page builders with their own strengths and weaknesses.
I like to work with both page builders. Right now I would recommend Elementor to you. And that’s for one reason: compatibility and functionality
Bricks is still in their early days, that’s why it isn’t compatible with all plugins. For example WPML and Polylang are both still not fully supported. But they are on the roadmap, so they should come soon.
The bottom line: which page builder should you choose?
If you’re looking for a powerful and easy-to-use page builder, then you can’t go wrong with either Elementor or Bricks Builder. Both page builder offer a wide range of features and options, making them ideal for creating beautiful and sophisticated websites.
However, if you’re looking for a page builder with more advanced features, then Bricks is the better choice. Elementor on the other hand offers a better compatibility to all types of plugins.
