Is it possible to use two page builders at the same time on one site? For example, say I do most of my work with Elementor but another page builder has an option not in Elementor that I really want to use.
I have built a website with Page Builder by Site Origin but I have started using Elementor on a new blog and really like it!
Is it possible to install Elementor on my Site Origin Site with no conflicts?
Sort of on topic and potentially useful for others: I have used Beaver Builder on an Avada site and disabled the Fusion builder. UNfortunately there is a message in the admin telling me that Fusion builder must be enabled. What is the most graceful way to kill an unwanted message in the admin panel like that one?
Great to have you here.
Unless absolutely necessary, you don't want two page builders being used on the same website as they will step over each others toes (increased loading times, possible plugin conflictions etc).
The most important question to ask yourself is what you are trying to achieve with a page builder.
Are you doing something that can only be done via Beaver Builder? If so, it is probably better just to use that.
I have used Visual Composer on many pages because it worked with a few other plugins I used, though I may change to something else in the future.
If you are not tied to any particular page builder and just want to make pages more professionally, you should perhaps use Gutenberg as that is going to be part of WordPress.
Be sure to start another thread about website optimisation if you want advice on that
Hello! I have a related question: can you change page builders after a site was already developed?
I'm working on a website that was built using Theme X and its associated page builder, Cornerstone. However, Cornerstone isn't great. Is it possible to switch page builders to Elementor? Will this change/effect the pages already built with Cornerstone?
Having two page builders is asking for trouble.
DIVI and Elementor are not compatible with each other and error messages will show up.
As an aside, another rule of thumb is to avoid using more than 20 WordPress Plugins at a time to avoid conflicts and site crashes.

As a wordpress developer, the quantity of plugins on your site doesn't affect your site. It's what resources they use up. You can hypothetically have 100 plugins that's main purpose is to change your site background on each individual page, and it will use up a tiny bit of resources.
Rather than think of the quantity of plugins, think of the ‘technical weight' of each plugin. A better rule of thumb is if the plugin does 100 different things, it's probably resource heavy. (Like Divi, or many social media toolbars)
