Which is best page builder for integration with theme with small budget?

Hi Guys,

i am very excited about what authors doing in this market.
As newbie, I have many question how they did, what they use for theme … hmm.

I have template HTML any now I want to convert to WordPress theme. I am startup so I have small budget for the license of plugins.

Can anyone suggest me the good page builder plugin to integrate with a theme?

I saw some best selling theme had their own page builder, it is out of my ability.

Sorry bad English.

Thank you.

You can try SiteOrigins Panels page builder that is available free on WordPress.org. I have used it in my themes and it works just perfectly. Good Luck!


I have been using SiteOrigin Page builder for the last 3 years, its perfect for you.


Many thank you quick reply.
Yeah let me try first with SiteOrigins.

when download SiteOrigin I found other page builder plugins … huh huh.
Wow, I am not imagine that there are many so amazing page builder free on wordpress.org.

I saw some choices here as Beaver Builder - very well frontend editor, Live Composer, King Composer - this one is newer but i like visual layout.

How do you think about Beaver Builder and Site Origins ?

Any way, I will try with SiteOrigins first.

Many thank you!

They’re both not bad plugins but …

  • King Composer is more expensive than Visual Composer to include in your theme

  • the Beaver link you are looking at is a free lite version so again you need to check the licensing because I owuld be very surprised if you could use that in a commercial theme without buying the proper version (again more expensive than VC). Plus the Lite version is quite restricted when looking at it in detail.


Try Unyson Page Builder.


Hi Charlie,

Oh I think you are wrong.
I read some theards that the VC take $180 for extend license for each items you selling in here.
The Beaver and KingComposer has similar price model, just pay $199 for all item.

I hate VC because slow and use old technical.

I am testing the Site Origin, Beaver and KingComposer. very excited with them.


Thank you, I will have a look

Don’t use Site Origin because it requires 100% GPL license for your theme to have. Use Unyson. It is framework but you can use only page builder extension. And you don’t have to change anything with license for your theme.

Oh, that is bad with me.

I will look a round the Beaver and KingComposer.

Many thank you!

If you integrate SiteOrigin plugin as TGM plugin activation, there wont be any issues in licensing, you should not included it in your theme.

That is correct. But still I’d prefer Unyson page builder. Site Origin was never easy for customization for me.

The Unyson has same simple visual as SiteOrigins. I don’t think my customers like them.

Does anyone have any feedback about using simple page builder for great theme?

I guess customer really like modern page builder with visual and more features supported.

I used some themes and I know I need more features when edit content.

In Unyson you can add as many as you wish page builder custom elements. You won’t get better page builder for free.

I keep my eye on various page builder and I believe SiteOrigins is the best solution.
It’s very clear to use, free, has live editor.
Test it, I believe you’ll like it.

I’ve used Visual Composer in last two themes (before we used Aqua Page Builder, but sadly, it’s abbandoned), but had some issues with it + extended licence is too expensive for us and it’s like 90% sure we will switch to SiteOrigins

You can use TGM plugin activation to prompt for SiteOrigin page builder install. No licensing issues then.

As I see King Composer is free if you use only backend.
