    Hello. I have been using the page builder elementor plug in with generate press.

    I am still new to wordpress though and am wondering what are some recommended ways to customize my generatepress theme other than using a page builder. I want to avoid relying on plugins so I can handle the code myself as well as avoid unnecessary bloat.

    Do people write html/css/javascript in a code editor like dreamweaver, then copy and paste that directly into the wordpress?

    And if so, is it common practice to use a framework like w3css/bootstrap/materializecss or is it best to create the framework from scratch for each site you make?

    I did see the Lightweight Grid Columns and Simple CSS plugins made by Tom Usborne. Those do look great, but at the same time I am trying to avoid using any plug-ins I don’t need to. So using plugins just to add CSS and handle grid columns seems like an unnecessary addition compared to the other options I had mentioned?

    Sorry about my ignorance on the matter, its hard to get a sense of what are popular methods when it seems to change so frequently.

    Thanks for your expertise.

    Hi there,

    Not sure what dreamweaver is but lots of people just write HTML directly into edit page/posts plus CSS.

    Here are some info that should help to replace page builders:

    Hi Leo,

    Thanks for the reply, those links are useful. Dreamweaver is just a web editor.

    Cheers.
