Visual Composer + VC Add-ons: wysiwyg on steroids
Remember way way back before visual representation tools made WordPress and other content management systems the exclusive purview of brainy coders?
There were no really powerful tools like Visual Composer to visually represent the coded page in visual terms or “wysiwyg” (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) as you went along. Designers would mock-up what they wanted to see in Photoshop and the coders would build the website using design as the guide. Well, Visual Composer changed all that. Now a designer can build his or her design directly using Visual Composer. Visual Composer makes creating visually impressive pages and posts as easy as it gets.
But can a non-designer website owner use Visual Composer. Absolutely! Learning to use Visual Composer and the VC Addons is relatively easy. There are many many YouTube videos available for users of every level. As well, the makers of both products have great how-to videos on their websites.
Visual Composer and VC Addons are built into every website we construct!
Technical Reviews of Visual Composer and VC Add-ons:
Our friends at WPMU DEV did a lengthy review of Visual Composer in early 2015 in which the experts found “Visual Composer to be the best all round drag and drop page building solution available to WordPress users”
AThemes has been creating WordPress themes since 2013. They review the 12 Best Drag and Drop Page Builders for WordPress 2017. In this review, Visual Composer is considered a solid workhorse that spawned the competition by being a good standard.
Here’s a detailed review from Kasa Reviews, a blog specializing in WordPress tips, comparisons and reviews, in which Visual Composer scores a decent 4.43 out of 5 stars.
