#1 BEST WORDPRESS PAGE BUILDER

Page Builder by SiteOrigin

Despite what everyone might say, Page Builder by SiteOrigin is our number one WordPress page builder. We've been using it on almost all our WordPress projects.

Why is it the best for you too?

It's simple, intuitive and easy to use while providing almost all necessary features that a page builder should have such as multiple columns layout as well as custom spacing and background for all rows.

We've used both Elenmentor and WPBakery Page Builder (formerly Visual Composer) before and found them nowhere as user-friendly as Page Builder by SiteOrigin. Best of all, it's free.

One feature we would love it to support is a CSS inline-editor like what WPBakery Page Builder offers.

Cost: FREE with paid extensions.

 

#1 BEST WORDPRESS FORMS PLUGIN

Ninja Forms

Compared to Contact Form 7, Ninja Forms is on another level.

Why is it the best for you too?

Ninja Forms is a powerful drag-and-drop form creator. Its UI is top-notch - user friendly and easy to use. You can't find any contact form plugins with better UI in the market.

While the free version would suffice for common forms, you may consider getting "File uploads" and "Conditional logic" extension that will literally empower you to create any forms you want.
