giving it 5 for the old but gold title!

This plugin should be a founding member (or at least aknowledged as one) of the growth of Wordpress! Sure it is not as popular as before, but one thing is for sure, you build it once and it stays built and reliable!
No, no, and NO

If you are creating websites professionally this is not the plugin you want. It is very clunky and you WILL have issues updating the plugin, WordPress Core, and other plugins as well. What we noticed are the following:
The undo feature isn't always available, so if you remove something and want it back, you may not be able to do it.
There is no option for minimum height of a row at all whatsoever. You have to use margin and padding to emulate that or you have to hardcode it in.
It puts spacing between areas where you may not want it. In order to remove that spacing you have to use negative margins, which isn't ideal.
When you design a page, we have noticed that when coming back to make updates, there are areas that you can't even see anymore. It's hard to explain, but all I can say is it's totally frustrating when you can't do anything.
This plugin will BLOAT YOUR DATABASE. It doesn't matter what the size is, you're going to wind up finding out that you're site is HUGE when it shouldn't be. After troubleshooting we found it was creating empty tables. We had to manually optimize it and clean out all of the excess junk it creates.
It's doesn't play well with other plugins. There's no telling which ones until you finally figure it out when something doesn't play nice.
Everything needs paid now

I recommended my employer to choose a Theme with Visual Composer, because it used to be the best, just to find out that tried to copy Elementor design process, and now everything needs to be paid...adding a simple "cart counter" has to be paid...all the modules created by the theme that used to work with Visual Composer, now are gone, and were replaced by "Go Premium" if you want to use them again.

I think this is a great plugin that gives you lots of options of customization while still allowing you to work visually vs back door. I am still waiting on an update to their template for woocommerce which has had outdated template files (this has been over a year). I also am not a fan of having to write/give reviews to make popups go away or to update my subscription to reflect their new pricing structure. I get reviews are important but...
My top choice
By Imants (0aksmith) on April 14, 2023
As a WordPress developer, I've used most of the major page builders, but Visual Composer stands out from the rest.
It's intuitive drag&drop UI allows me to create great websites quickly, without touching any frontend code.
One of my favorite features is it's 'Role Manager' extension.
It enables me to limit the access to specific elements within the builder, based on a user role.
For instance, I can restrict Authors and Editors from changing critical sections of the website while still allowing them to craft posts visually.
This feature has saved me many hours of troubleshooting and ensures that my client's websites remain consistent in style and design.
I highly recommend this page builder to anyone looking for a flexible and easy-to-use solution for their WordPress site.
Free version is incredibly useless
By andersonmic on April 7, 2023
The free version is severely gimped, with some key features taken out that even the most basic designer would consider necessary. It is also pretty much an advertisement window for the paid version, with a mass of large buttons that simply declare they are not available in this version.
Slow, and laggy

Slow, and laggy. Premium or free... diffretnce in options, quality - the same. Pretty much just like WPBakery.
too slow to fix bugs
By malakith on February 3, 2023
