With page builders and themes where do you start? If I use a page builder do I need to install a theme?
Themes and Page Builders are 2 differnt things.
1 The theme is the template of the website and you can start from there and customize it and add content.
- You can buy a theme according with what the site will be about (like if you want a real estate website there are templetes thet have almost everything prebuild for you to use).
- You can buy a theme that can be used for multipurpose and customize it accordingly .
- Or you can use a free theme that has less choices for customization.
2 The page builder is a plugin that will help you add the content to your theme and make it look awesome and exactly how you want to.
For a good looking website in most cases you need both.
But since you are making this question I am guessing you are new to wordpress.
