So what is a page builder? And why would you want to use one? – Lachlan Black

Page builders are a visual tool for doing layout work and adding functionality to your content, allowing you to produce mobile-friendly and visually-appealing pages and posts without needing to do any coding such as HTML or CSS. 

Even if you are comfortable with editing the code of your pages, posts, and stylesheets, you might find page builders are a quick and user-friendly alternative that’s worth a look. 

Lachlan will discuss page builders in general and in particular, the Page Builder Plugin from SiteOrigin, covering topics including:

• Pros and cons of page builders

• Who are they good for? 

• Who might want to steer clear of them?

• Choosing a page builder – a brief look at the current main choices

• What a page builder actually does

• How to get started using a page builder

• A quick demonstration using the SiteOrigin plugin

• If you’d like to present, please contact the organisers today!

Lachlan Black is a freelance WordPress developer who often uses page builders as one of his go-to tools to quickly develop client websites.
