    Great review Darrel. I have used all the products listed with the exception of flatsome and feel the same. I personally find divi the easiest to use and elementor the best for complicated websites. I will have to give flatsome a try for giggles and see what I am missing.

    Hi Darrel really informative tutorials, thanks for taking the time to make and share such well polished videos. Hoping you may be able to suggest a builder/plugin suitable for building a Limo/Chauffeur site, that will have booking/quote forms/date pickers/time etc…. I am new to WP and have made the mistakes you mention, buying themes that I thought would look good and be nice they have all turned out to be rather difficult to do anything with as a beginner and either use WP Bakery (I agree with your comments WP Bakery is a nightmare to try and use) or they have been HTML themes which of course wont work with WP. – essentially I have wasted a few hundred dollars and would rather not waste any more money. Just want to get my site built and running – any suggestions on which are most suitable would be most welcome.

    Why is everyone getting so worked up about Oxygen? Although I use it for everything WP related, you have to remember, that people who build in wordpress, generally aren't Web Developers. WP allows average joe's to do it themselves, and designers to build sites without knowing code. That's the beauty of it. Oxygen is different, as it bridges the gap for people who like the freedom of coding from scratch, and who probably wouldn't have went near WP without it, like me. Because of this, most people who use wordpress, actually do hate it! I tried to make it a standard in my former agency for over a year, and everyone hated it, because why learn code when you can just stick some Divi theme up and get on with the next one. Everyone rejected it. So my 2 cents….. If you use and love Oxygen, good for you! If you're interested in learning more code and you want to focus on becoming a developer predominantly, Oxygen is definitely worth looking at. If you already do consider yourself an even moderately skilled developer, then Oxygen is an absolute no-brainer. If you're a designer first and foremost, or just churn out small sites for a small agency, or if you just run your own website, there are probably 50+ more suitable options out there for you.

    you didn't called Kadence. i think it's the best free theme nowadays. I used Astra for a long while but kadence is much better.

    Darrel, Ultimate Membership Pro compatible with the Brizy Pro website builder? I don't see it listed in their list of web builders. Did Brizy just get skipped over?

    Haven’t watched the video and probably won’t. I’ve used Origin, Visual Composer aka WPBakery, Beaver Builder, X Theme builder, Arvada builder, Divi, Elementor, and Oxygen.

    Out of those I would recommend Oxygen any day over any other builder. In fact it’s beyond a builder as it does so much more than those other bloated builders.

    Now with that said, I’m not against Elementor and Divi. I would use either one if Oxygen wasn’t available. I would recommend it to WordPress noobs as well. However for someone who honestly wants to learn about real design and development while using a great, lightweight builder… Oxygen rules.

    I agree with some of the other comments Darrel that your personal bias is at play with your responses to Oxygen. I would even guess it’s due to the fact your own skill set is dumbed down and the best you can do is drag and drop.

    Hey Darrel, what plugin would you recommend for a vehicle rental website? Customers must be able to lease the vehicles through the website so it would be good to integrate with WooCommerce.

    I use Elementor and Divi but I find Elementor more friendly (even for beginners). Perhaps I’m missing something with Divi. Either way, both are good (and Divi has been more reliable since V3). I agree with WPBakery and really don’t enjoy using it.

    I prefer SiteOrigin, it fits in existing themes and is not slowing down the site.

    divi can add the button very easy but the issue is divi will miss the css loading if use the tiny the css with the check option, one of my website faced this issue then I changed to flatsome, it is very easy to use flatsome as woocommerce website. I bought the full life divi account, but I don't use divi for years…

    You just put in double 'w' instead of triple 'w'

    RE eCommerce themes, don't they all just use WoCommerce anyway, so have the same basic functionality?
    I use DIVI myself, but I use ECWID rather than WooCommerce, so I cannot really comment about the lack of an add to cart button, but surely this is a Woocommerce feature rather than a DIVI feature?

    I See Why You Didn't Recommend Oxygen Builder… Because You Are Reviewing A Page Builder, and Oxy Is A great "Theme's Builder" :v

    Hello Darrel, Thank you for this tutorial. I have one question related to E-Commerce though, Why would you pick WordPress over Shopify for E-Commerce in the first place? I would like to know the reasons for that. Thank you in advance, hope you can answer this question 🙂

    Oxygen is by far the most advanced page builder. The fastest, no contest. The most flexible for page layout with its powerful flex box engine. Now I can build a website from scratch like a pro because of Oxygen.

    No themes needed.

    Hi Darrel, so before watching this video I was checking themeforest.net in order to buy the "Soledad – Multi-Concept Blog Magazine WordPress Theme" but now I'm not so sure, I want to build a Blog/Magazine Website with features similar to the ones in the "Soledad" Theme, should I go ahead with the purchase or is there a better theme you'd recommend?, Thanks!!

    Hi Darrel,
    I keep following your recommendations and videos, and this my little experience:

    I'm using Elementor Page Builder with Astra theme, i feel elementor slow down the site when i test with https://www.webpagetest.org/ but not sure about other builders not ready to try them XD.

    I used Ultimate Membership Pro,
    The plugin is great,
    But had to work around and use the integration option with WooCommerce to link with local payment method for middle east people. Sad we cant use PayPal would make our life easy. I remember you recommended to use 2checkout for middle east people but didn't work with me maybe my bad not sure.

    Regarding hosting I left my paid bluehost (bye bye money) and moved to Namehero (worth it),
    As on shared hosting level I can say Namehero 20x faster than bluehost for what i'm working on – the support team super fast – Darrel discount is awesome.
    Side note:
    Hostinger you gave them number 1 but many reviews says they are great with avoiding them, maybe on your testing period time hostinger had great time with some luck.
    SiteGound you gave them average on your list, but as reviews they could be higher, maybe they had bad luck on your testing period time.

    KEEP IT UP Mr. Darrel 😀
