The new Gutenberg Block Editor that comes with newer versions of WordPress is great for blog posts and basic page layouts. But it’s not designed to build advanced and more complex pages like a professional-looking homepage or sophisticated landing pages out of the box.
So for that, you can take advantage of a page builder.
WordPress page builders give you the power to create posts and pages without any coding knowledge, exactly how you want them.
Most page builders offer front-end editing that lets you build pages in real-time using the drag and drop content elements.
They are called WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) builders.
WYSIWYG mode makes editing WordPress blogs and pages a breeze!
One of the most popular WYSIWYG WordPress page builders are Elementor
Let’s now see how you use these page builders to edit your WordPress website…
Elementor is an insanely popular WordPress page builder with over 5M+ users. You can use Elementor to create pages, edit themes, and build full websites with beautiful design — all without touching a single line of code.
