We’ve created an intuitive interface that looks just like WordPress itself. It’s easy to learn, so you’ll be building beautiful, responsive content in no time.

Page Builder works with standard WordPress widgets, so you’ll always find the widget you need. We’ve created the SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle to give you all the most common widgets, and with a world of plugins out there, you’ll always find the widget you need.

Ready to Be Used Anywhere

Choose your editor; Page Builder is ready to be used anywhere. Build in the traditional Page Builder interface or insert a Page Builder Layout into the Block Editor. Insert the SiteOrigin Layout Widget into sidebar and footer widget areas or use the SiteOrigin Layout Block in block-based widget areas.

It Works With Your Theme

Page Builder gives you complete freedom to choose any WordPress theme you like. It’s not a commitment to a single theme or theme developer. The advantage is that you’re free to change themes as often as you like. Your content will always come along with you.

We’ve also made some fantastic free themes that work well with Page Builder.

No Coding Required

Page Builder’s simple drag and drop interface means you’ll never need to write a single line of code. Page Builder generates all the highly efficient code for you.

Live Editing

Page Builder supports live editing. This tool lets you see your content and edit widgets in real time. It’s the fastest way to adjust your content quickly and easily.

History Browser

This tool lets you roll forward and back through your changes. It gives you the freedom to experiment with different layouts and content without the fear of breaking your content.

Row, Cell, and Widget Styles

Row, cell, and widget styles give you all the control you need to make your content uniquely your own. Change attributes like paddings, background colors, and column spacing. You can also enter custom CSS and CSS classes if you need even finer-grained control.

Focussed on Performance

We’ve built a lightweight framework, focusing on small page sizes and fast load time. Page Builder is compatible with Autoptimize and all other major performance plugins.

SEO Optimized

Page Builder uses modern SEO best practices and seamlessly integrates with all major SEO plugins, including Yoast SEO and Rank Math.

It’s Free, and Always Will Be

Page Builder is our commitment to the democratization of content creation. Like WordPress, Page Builder is, and always will be, free. We’ll continue supporting and developing it for many years to come. It’ll only get better from here.

This plugin works well and is fully supported, but the amount of updates is excessive – 9 so far this year. This can make it more difficult to ensure our websites are kept up to date.

I’ve been using SiteOrigin for 5 years now. Not officially at the beginning with SiteOrigin as my theme had a forked version of it, but I easily moved over to the official one, this one within a year later or so later. Anyway, been using Page Builder by SiteOrigin, SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle, and of course SiteOrigin Premium with 0 issues, and just all work with Classic and TinyMCE.It’s my permanent building structure. So long as they permanently keep supporting Classic Editor / Classic Widgets

The basic page builder is quite good for starters. Very well documented with support. I hope they adapt more features from other popular plugins.
