Page Builder’s New Live Editor

Page Builder‘s new Live Editor is going to change the way you build websites. We’re now giving you the ability to perform all the actions you’d need to create a new page, completely inside the Live Editor with its near real-time updates of what your content is looking like.

This new feature along with a whole bunch of other new features and performance enhancements are available in the latest 2.4 update of Page Builder.

And while you’re here. If Page Builder is a plugin you’re enjoying and you have a couple moments – we’d really appreciate it if you could write a review. We’d love to hear what you think.

    Very excited for Site Origin and new update on PageBuilder, it was already a great benefit but now even better. Being able to see it happening and the price is awesome.

    This really realy rocks, can’t wait to try it out.
    Brilliant, now it’s easy to find what to edit. And easy to edit, configure.
    A real improvement that redefines how to make good use of PageBuilder.

      Thanks Linda! Just wait until you try it out – it makes building pages SO much faster.

    Immense! A great Live Editor!
    If you do still manages to present a report drawn up contents of a row on multiple sites, then you are loved even more! (I read correctly: you are working on this issue?)
    – excuse my amiss English –

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Thanks René! There are definitely more features that we need to add to Page Builder. We’ll be working our hardest to get them all done.

    Love this. Great product.

    I’ve been using SiteOrgin’s products for about 6 months now. Between their Vantage theme the custom CSS editor and the page builder I’ve actually started enjoying working with WordPress.

    I much prefer this page builder over the paid CV one. The upgraded live editor will now be a tool set I use in many future projects.

    Thanks for your vision!

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      It’s an absolute pleasure, Brad! It’s great to part of your WordPress toolkit. That’s our main goal here – make WordPress simple and powerful.

  9. 2 years, 21 days ago Jahn

    I really love your page builder. It´s getting better an better with every update.
    I´m also trying new widgets from you guys on my redesign right now and I am loving it! :)

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      That’s awesome! Hopefully the new live editor makes your redesign that much easier. Be sure to let us know when you’re done.

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Thanks Oriol! We’ll definitely keep aiming high. It’s part of the SiteOrigin DNA.

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      You are too kind Carlos :)

  13. 2 years, 20 days ago Chook

    To think some Page Builders from other studios cost so much.
    SiteOrigin offer theirs for Free is outstanding! This adds incredible value to the WordPress eco system.

    Where’s that Donate Button??? You guys deserve at the very least a coffee, beer, donuts, something to show how much I (‘we) appreciate your work.

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      I personally get a huge kick out of adding something to the WordPress ecosystem. In the future, we will be adding a few more premium products around our current free ones (like Vantage Premium), to help us fund more development.

  14. 2 years, 20 days ago Alberto

    I don’t know what I like the most: your amazing plugin or you elephant at the footer of this page. Great job guys!

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Thanks Alberto. I think Addo the Elephant inspires all the products :)

  15. 2 years, 20 days ago Thomas Fanselow

    Thanks for this great job. I love it.
    Is the best Pagebuilder i have seen.
    I think, i will change any of my Sites.

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      That’s awesome to hear Thomas! Thanks for the great feedback.

  16. 2 years, 20 days ago Bjarne

    Its absolutely amazing what you are able to offer at no costs. Thank you for the continued improvement of Page Builder and your great themes as well.

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      It’s hard keeping all of these new features free, but it’s all worth it in the end. Thanks for the encouragement Bjarne!

  17. 2 years, 20 days ago KalaWebs

    WordPress’ best page builder got even better! I must say your work is as priceless as WordPress itself. Page builder now gives a better front-end editing feeling. Thanks!

    • 2 years, 20 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Thanks KalaWebs! Yeah, to me, Page Builder’s new Live Editor is frontend editing done the WordPress way :)

  18. 2 years, 20 days ago Kristian

    It doesn’t work on SOME sites of mine. One old single site is not working. The nice left panel shows up with text on top of each other and no icons for screen sizes. The only way to get back is with the back button on the browser.

    Same problem on 2 mature sites on a MS. 1 new site and one not yet released work.
    I’ve changed themes, disabled all plugins I can without ruining the live sites. Always same result, those that work continue to do so, the ones that don’t, no change.
    Contact me privately so I can set up and send you logins to some of the sites for you to check out.

    Can I roll back to the old version?


    • 2 years, 19 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Hi Kristian – to roll back to an old version, you can visit the developers page and download version 2.3.2. Alternatively, we’d be happy to help out on our support forums.

      • 2 years, 19 days ago Kristian Adolfsson

        I’ve opened a ticket in the support forum.

  19. 2 years, 20 days ago Andrea Del Riva

    You guys are not just an innovative and reliable team, but also an inspiration for the WordPress Community. I haven’t had chance to test yet the new PB, seeing the viedo it looks very interesting the new live editor.
    Furthermore, showing the new functionalities with a video it’s indeed handy for both old and new users to find out quickly the how to.

  20. 2 years, 20 days ago Andrea Del Riva

    P.s What I love most are the new 3 tabs for the 3 devices.

    • 2 years, 19 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      This was actually a last minute feature – it did come out quite well. With mobile becoming more and more important, seeing your content on these different devices is a huge help. Thanks for all the great feedback and continued support Andrea. It’s very much appreciated.

  21. 2 years, 20 days ago Jorge Alegria

    Gracias por compartir, ¡Buen trabajo!

  22. 2 years, 20 days ago Dave

    Thanks for all of your team’s efforts, Greg. Page Builder is wonderful, useful product and you guys keep making it better and better. Best to Andrew, too.

    • 2 years, 20 days ago David T LeBlanc

      PS, the option you guys added to see the page as a desktop/laptop, smartphone or tablet is a nice touch.

    • 2 years, 19 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Thanks Dave! Very happy to hear our efforts are appreciated. A lot of love goes into these Page Builder updates/features.

  23. 2 years, 20 days ago Николай

    Good afternoon! With your creativity, I met by chance and was delighted with the possibilities that are provided by your plugin. I really like your approach to creating amazing and at the same time, simple applications that facilitate the creation of a site, even for inexperienced users like me.

    Dear developers! You do not just amazing plugins, and you are making masterpieces!

    I really like your work and the enthusiasm with which you work and the possibilities offered to us.

    Thank you very much! Good luck in the further development and endeavors!

    • 2 years, 19 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Thank you very much for the feedback Николай! Feels good to have our work being called masterpieces :). I hope you get some good use out of Page Builder and the new Live Editor.

  24. 2 years, 19 days ago Roseanne

    This is fantastic :D Thank you for all of your hard work at Site Origin! The plugins make building websites way less overwhelming!

    • 2 years, 19 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      It’s an absolute pleasure, Roseanne. Simple and powerful is our motto here at SiteOrigin – hopefully we’re hitting the mark with these updates.

  25. 2 years, 18 days ago naz

    v2.4.2 is an incredible update, not just the improved live builder, or tablet responsiveness, but also that little but incredible option to add pre-built layouts before or after the current layout. Great work!!!

    • 2 years, 18 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Thank you kindly Naz! That responsive views feature should come in really handy.

  26. 2 years, 18 days ago Alan Kelly

    Hey all your siteorgin plug-ins are great the css-plug-in is a life saver
    The live view is fantastic but I’m having technical difficulties it only works sometimes it’s probably
    Something I’m doing wrong.
    Well done keep up the good work.
    Regards Al

    • 2 years, 16 days ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Hi Alan! If you post over on our support forums, we should be able to help you out. Very glad to hear you’re enjoying our WordPress goodies though.

    This almost looks like the WordPress Customizer (the collapse, the desktop/mobile/tablet icons) ? I believe with the new Fields API coming and getting widget page building integrated into the Customizer is the next logical step. I just hate the pop-up still. Another idea would be to have the widgets expand to toggle functionality live (using the upcoming FIelds API). I created a mockup of what it could look like in the future.

    VIsual Mockup

    • 1 year, 9 months ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      Hi John

      Sorry, I missed your comment. Yeah, that’s a great looking interface you created there. SiteOrigin Page Builder has slightly different goals. With it, I want to create a rock-solid column builder interface that can work in various different places. So the Live Editor, the posts/pages interface, and even inside a widget. In the future, I’d even like to add a SiteOrigin Builder field to Advanced Custom Fields. All of this means we’ll be focusing on the builder interface we’ve been working hard on all these years rather than switching to the Fields API.

      That said, perhaps we or someone else could look at creating a light weight alternative to Page Builder that does something like this.

  28. 1 year, 9 months ago Sofie Massør

    I have just used the upgraded version for the first time. It was intuitive and fast to use. It was awesome to see the changes real time.

    Thanks for making a great product even better!

    • 1 year, 9 months ago Greg Priday Hi, I Work Here

      It’s our pleasure, Sofie. Hopefully we can improve the Live Editor interface even more in the future :)

  29. 1 year, 6 months ago Diana Jeff

    I’ve used this & believe me it was whole new experience for me. Thanks for making this so easier and user friendly.
    Keep it up …. Greg !
