The WordPress platform has been progressing for years, rightfully so; it has become one of the most powerful platforms for website building out there.
One of the newest trends in the WordPress development community are page building themes and plugins which bring the power of WordPress to even more of an audience for their ease of creating unique layouts within the WordPress framework.
There are several great options for page building out there, but today we will be featuring the FastLine Themes Page Builder plugin, a true drag & drop frontend WordPress experience.
Fairly new in its release, our team over at FastLine Themes are proud to announce a fantastic frontend drag & drop WordPress plugin that allows users to create beautiful page layouts without having to write any code! Anyone that can learn WordPress can learn to use the Page Builder.
With that said, let’s take a look at some of the key features that define the FastLine Page Builder plugin.
It Works With Your WordPress Theme or Ours
The Page Builder was designed to work with almost any WordPress theme on the market. We say ‘almost’ because it’s impossible for us to test every theme that exists, but if you run into any issues, our support team is here to help! Don’t have a theme currently installed or want a new one? Not a problem, we have you covered there as well! Coupled with the Page Builder plugin is the Automator Theme, a modern WordPress theme with simple, yet robust options for creating a variety of styles.
Pre-Built Page Layouts
The Page Builder comes packaged with a handful of pre-built layouts that you can use as a starting point with the click of your mouse and then edit with your content at your leisure. It also comes packaged with powerful features that allow you to duplicate, reuse and export custom layouts you have created.
Modules and Widgets Galore
We’ve loaded the Page Builder up with a comprehensive set of modules to aid you in building stunning layouts within our intuitive drag & drop system with more to come! In addition to content modules, the Page Builder also supports core and third party WordPress widgets, making the number of things you can drop into a layout almost endless.
Optimized For Mobile
Every piece of a Page Builder layout is fully responsive and looks gorgeous on any screen size. Easily drop any number of columns onto the page that will adjust automatically as the screen gets smaller. Don’t worry, if responsive sites aren’t your thing, that functionality can be turned off at anytime in the main settings.
Optimized For Performance
We’ve designed the Page Builder to create layouts that load quickly. Many themes and plugins load in an ungodly number of scripts and stylesheets to every page on your site. Not the Page Builder! It only loads the assets needed for a given page instead of slowing your site down by loading everything.
We’re not done with the Page Builder, not by a long shot. In the coming months we will be releasing new features, modules and pre-built layouts that can be accessed by premium members through our remote updates system. The remote update system allows you to update to the latest version of the Page Builder in the same way you currently update your wordpress.org plugins. The free version will always have access to remote updates for bug fixes and core UI enhancements.
Three Versions To Choose From
The Page Builder plugin comes in three flavors for you to choose from:
- Free (limited modules, no pre-built layouts)
- Standard (all modules and pre-built layouts)
- Developer (multisite support and PSD templates)
Be sure to check out FastLine Themes for more information on the Page Builder plugin and Automator theme.
More To Come!
We’re excited for what the Page Builder can do now and the potential it holds to do even bigger things in the future. In the coming months, we’ll be hard at work listening to your feedback in the support forums and implementing features as quickly as we can churn them out. It’s going to be a fun year and everyone here at FastLine Themes is looking forward to sharing it with you!
