WordPress is an ideal platform for anyone looking to build a great looking, functional website with minimal technical know-how.
With thousands of themes to choose from, each with its own live demo, it’s easy to identify a theme you like, then install it on your own website to give yourself the same design. Moving forward, you can also install plugins to give your website the extra functionality it needs.
Pretty soon, you’ll have your perfect website – well, almost.
As user-friendly as WordPress is, and as great as the results are, the more you try to change the layout of certain elements within your site, the sooner you’ll begin to find things a little more difficult than you were perhaps expecting. That theme layout you loved is now restrictive, and your website feels one or two potentially expensive tweaks short of what you wanted.
Because of this, the last few years have seen the rise of numerous WordPress drag-and-drop page builder plugins.
The very first of its kind was the Visual Composer plugin. Developed by WPBakery, the plugin has gone on to sell over a staggering 65,000 copies, and holds the distinction of being CodeCanyon’s best-selling WordPress plugin of all time. As well as this, you’ll find Visual Composer bundled in with quite a few premium themes on ThemeForest, including the best-selling X theme.
