Page Builder is very popular in WordPress. This post is not about how to use page builder. In this tutorial, we are going to build page builder plugin from scratch. It’s not going to be a complex page builder, a simple one so we can understand how the code works, and possibly use it as base/example for more complex system. This is the page builder in action: Why not use available Page Builder such as Site Orgin’s Page Builder, Visual Composer, Beaver Builder, etc? In my opinion, in most use case, page builder is too complex. Because of the massive features, I don’t really enjoy working with page builder. Design/theme integration could be overwhelming. Why not library such as ACF PRO where you can custom-made page builder (flexible content) ? I use ACF PRO a lot, it’s a great library, but sometimes the UI is not suitable for our needs. Sometimes it’s feels overkill to use this massive library for simple plugin. And we have no control in future development of the plugin. I believe it’s important to know how to build our own, plus, no additional plugin required for user to install/purchase. Who need this tutorial? Anyone who want to learn how to create
