Cambridge Wordpress: Page Builders

Chris McMahon kindly volunteered to present on Page Builders. Page Builders promise quick, easy, responsive development, even for novices. However, there are downsides: can they do just what you want, do they slow down load times?

Usual format:

7:30 Introduction: everyone introduces themselves - 20 seconds max. Di

Short pitches: 3 minutes presentations on anything you want. Max of 4 presentations.

Main presentation: Chris McMahon on Page Builders

Discussion, Q&A.

Topic & date for next meeting.

    Thanks for the feedback re Monday. I thought some of you might like to watch this video which runs through some of the pagebuilders I talked about. Interesting to note that when the same talk was done earlier in the year by one of the presenter's colleagues the 'winner' was Beaver Builder and in the most recent video at the Boston WordCamp Elementor was added (not in previous talk) and came out joint winner with BB.

    Absolutely loved it! Got my geek on and had a fab time. Thanks for organising and being so welcoming. Hope to see some of you at the Impactathon and of course then at the next meetup! Am I right in thinking that it's the 3rd Monday of the month? I want to put it in my diary as a recurring event. Thanks /\ thora

    I'm also a new to WordPress (are we a dying breed?) and so spent half this morning reading up on page builders - http://athemes.com/collections/drag-drop-page-builders-wordpress/ has 23 to mull over.

    It'll be interesting to see which, if any, Chris McMahon recommends and why.

    I'm on holiday on 22nd Aug, but will be there next time. Hope it's OK to just be a novice user of wordpress on my website. I'd just like to soak up some knowledge - any knowledge, even just learn how to talk about this stuff

    Unfortunately on holiday that day
