      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.

      Oh yes, you can. I use Beaver Builder & Elementor on this website. You just can’t use both on the same page / post.

      Hi Adam…

      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?

      Hi Tim.

      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.

      You will have to rebuild the pages already built with Cornerstone.

      > 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)

      Is it a good idea to have thrive themes and elementor running on one wordpress site? Not sure why my developer is using elementor for products and the rest is running on thrive.

        Ideally, you would use one page builder. I bet they are doing that way out of some personal convenience.

      so what to do if one wants to change to elementor from wpbakery and not lose the whole layout of countless carefully curated blog posts? D\’:

      • Feb 7, 2018 at 12:02 pm #36931

        You have to recreate each page, one by one, in Elementor. I just went through that here on this website going from Beaver Builder to Elementor.

        Hi Adam,

        I’m hoping to get your perspective on this. I have a site with 30 posts, few pages, about, privacy policy, terms, etc.. My site is using Salient Theme, which came with WPBakery page builder. I believe Salient is a robust nicely design theme, with lots of handy pre-made templates. But I can’t help but wanting to switch to Elementor for a page builder.

        1)Can I stick with Salient and switch page builder to Elementor? If so what are the knock-ons?
        2)If I switch Themes to one that works well with Elementor, how much work is the porting process? What’s involved? Is it even worth it?

        Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

        Thank you!

        Cam

        You need to look at all the pages that are using the builder in Salient, then ask yourself “if the juice is worth the squeeze” the effort to remake them in Elementor.

      Hi Adam,

      I am new here but I enjoy your tutorials and your videos for a long time. That’s why I registered here, to ask a question:

      I have a few sites I built with Site Origin page builder. Then I discovered free Elementor and started to build all my sites with it.

      I read here about converting from any page builder to Elementor, and I understand that I have to re-build all the sites from scratch. I just don’t know how to start it.

      On one side, I don’t want to change the URL of the pages. On the other side, I need the old pages in front of me in order to copy the content from one page-builder to the other.
      Can you please suggest how in your opinion I should do it? Do you think I should create a site staging and work on it and then move it to live? I never worked on a staging site and I don’t know how it will work if I convert the content of the pages to another page builder.

      I believe this question occupies many site owners who think of converting their site from any page-builder to Elementor.

      Thank you for thinking about my question which isn’t simple in my eyes.
