In this session, we will explore several of the builders including Gutenberg, Divi, Elementor, Cornerstone, Beaver Builder and Brizzy and more. We will explore how a builder can help your site and how it can also possibly hurt the site in terms of speed, and functionality.

Most recently, 10 years later, WordPress core released its own type of page builder built right into WordPress called Gutenberg.

The rounds of page builders include Divi, Beaver Builder, Elementor, and Gutenberg!
