Just wondering what you think, I’m curious, what Page Builder do you think works best with GeneratePress? Some plugins that I can think of at the moment are:
Page Builder by Site Origin
Have you work with one that isn’t list? Is it fast, non-sluggish and powerful?GeneratePress 2.0.1GP Premium 1.5.6January 26, 2018 at 6:16 am #480371LeoStaffCustomer SupportJanuary 26, 2018 at 11:23 am #480683Webmaster
I think that’s the best route too, less plugins almost always create better results. Thanks for the feedback @Leo – appreciate it.January 26, 2018 at 4:46 pm #480820LeoStaffCustomer SupportMay 16, 2018 at 11:38 am #577381Kay
Why is WP Bakery Builder not mentioned as an option? Doesn’t it have close to 2 million users? 🙂 I haven’t even heard of Beaver Builder before I discovered GP in a Youtube video yesterday.May 16, 2018 at 12:25 pm #577429LeoStaffCustomer SupportMay 21, 2018 at 10:23 am #580957Max
You can view 50+ examples of GeneratePress websites built with the Elementor page builder here:

I thought you recommended Beaver Builder, Leo? I haven’t seen anyone even mention Wp Bakery Builder here, which is so strange to me, because of its huge user base. 🙂 I’m wondering if there is a bias against it?
Elementor looks very nice too, I will take it for a spin.May 21, 2018 at 11:21 am #581012Webmaster
Thanks for the link Max – heck yea!
There is no bias against it, the plugin is just trash compared to others. You say huge user base Kay, but nobody uses it… so maybe fake stats?May 21, 2018 at 11:28 am #581019Kay
Haha 🙂 Well, I’m happy to find there are alternatives out there. I don’t know which numbers are correct, to be honest. It is very common in other themes, but apparently not around here. Looking forward to trying out your recommendations!April 23, 2021 at 5:51 am #1745827Margaret
Is Gutenberg considered a page builder?April 23, 2021 at 8:17 am #1746173LeoStaffCustomer SupportApril 23, 2021 at 8:20 am #1746183Margaret
Thanks for the reply. I’m looking at different page builder options with the ultimate goal of improving page speed.
It would be cool if GeneratePress could put together an example website with different page builders, and compare the page speed of each one to see which is fastest! I’m currently using WPBakery, and I’m in the process of migrating to Gutenberg + GenerateBlocks + Ultimate Addons for Gutenberg. I’m hoping that will be faster than WPBakery.

I didn’t want to start a new ticket since this topic is already being discussed.
I’m very new to wordpress and I’m developing my CSS and wordpress skills in tandem, hence I want to build the right future-proof skills to make really good wordpress websites. I have acquired generatepress pro, and would like to understand best ways in leveraging it.
From what I read above, it seems Gutenberg is better than page builders in terms of final site render speed. What about development speed, are they slightly similar? Additionally, can gutenberg accomplish whatever can be done in other page builders?
Finally, if a person decides to go for a no-pagebuilder route, what would be the best tools and practices for rapid development on generatepress?
