I’m a web developer. I love creating WordPress sites totally from scratch, digging into the nitty gritty of CSS and HTML. I have often shied away from visual page builders with drag-and-drop interfaces because it takes away from my “craft.” At times I’ve probably even spoken badly about them to clients and peers.
But, I have a confession.
My website (on the day of writing this) is using Beaver Builder, one of those WordPress page builders I have so vehemently avoided. Why? Well, I was in a hurry. My goals were more pressing than my need to create a custom theme. By swallowing my pride I was able to create a beautiful, functioning site in about a day and move onto more pressing matters.
What’s the point of all of this? Sometimes the simple solution is the best solution. Sometimes your budget or timeline may not be adequate for a custom site and in that case you need to do the best you can with what you have to keep yourself (and your business) moving forward.
