What is Beaver Builder?

Live, Front End Editing. What you see is what you get! Beaver Builder’s intuitive WordPress website builder works in real time on the front end of your page. No more guesswork. As long as you’re using a responsive theme, any page built with Beaver Builder will be totally responsive.

Beaver Builder is a drag-and-drop page builder that lets you easily create drag-and-drop page layouts, all from a front-end view of your site and without touching a line of code. It’s fast and flexible and offers lots of design options to all levels of WordPress users. Another huge feature is its responsive design mode, in which you can quickly switch between large, medium, and small-screen views and tweak the settings for each size.

What Does Beaver Builder Cost?

Beaver Builder Lite
Beaver Builder Lite, the free version of their powerful tool, has a simple, sleek, and easy-to-navigate menu of options. Here’s an example of a simple first layout attempt with under five minutes of effort: a heading, and under that two columns with an image on the left and text on the right:

You’ll see that the light version includes five modules in the Basic category (text, HTML, video, audio, and images) and one module in the Layout category: the Sidebar module, which lets you drop a sidebar into any row of your page layout. The contents of the sidebar are configured in your theme’s customizer.

All six modules are identical to the modules in the premium versions, so you can start to get a taste of what you can do with a premium version of Beaver Builder, where you have access to many more modules, layout templates, and prebuilt rows.

If you want more from Beaver Builder without having to splurge on a premium plugin, you can look into PowerPack Lite for Beaver Builder, a free add-on plugin. If you only need a few extra features, PowerPack offers more modules, some prebuilt templates, and several section templates – you can look into the PowerPack add-on. A premium version of PowerPack comes in at $69 per year or $249 for lifetime support and updates.

Beaver Builder Premium

If you’re hooked on Beaver Builder and want more, any premium version of Beaver Builder is only an upgrade away. All your work in the Lite version will remain intact.

All premium versions have the same version of the page builder, with lots of modules and prebuilt templates and rows, plus other features like the ability to save layouts for re-use or export, all described in the following sections. The difference in premium versions is the addition of the Beaver Builder Theme plus other features more of interest to those building multiple sites, especially for folks who have WordPress multisite feature or who run agencies and want to put their brand on the page builder.
