Enclavely, Inc., the owners of the Tailor Page Builder plugin, have announced that they will be discontinuing its development effective immediately. Andrew Worsfold, the original developer, launched Tailor in April 2016 and the plugin received an enthusiastic reception from the WordPress community. After performing a critical review of the major page builders available to users in September 2016, Pippin Williamson found only three that he could happily recommend to his customers: Tailor, Pootle Page Builder, and Beaver Builder. This recommendation was based primarily on code quality, usability, and compatibility with other plugins. The plugin came under new management in July 2017 after the original developer no longer had enough time to dedicate to the project. Worsfold sold it to Enclavely, whose owners were early and enthusiastic users of the plugin, for what he said was “a nominal amount.” Three months later, the new owners cite the cost of keeping up with Gutenberg and other competitors as the primary reason for discontinuing its development: Gutenberg is going to be bundled with WordPress itself. That’s definitely going to give a tough time to all 3rd party page
