Page builder plugins are all the rage these days. They allow anyone to create a beautiful website without having to learn how to code or hire an expensive developer. Luckily, there is no shortage of both free and premium page builder plugins.
A newcomer onto the page builder plugin scene is a plugin called Brizy and in today's post, I'll be giving you a brief review of what the plugin offers, discuss pros and cons, and how the plugin stacks up to similar page builder plugins.
What Does Brizy Offer
Brizy is a free drag and drop page builder with a pro version available for pre-order. Similarly to other page builder plugins, Brizy gives you a drag and drop interface and hundreds of premade blocks that you can use to create your site. Let's discuss the main features more in depth below.
Drag and Drop Interface
With Brizy, you can drag and drop elements onto your page. You can add new elements by clicking the + icon directly on the page or you can add them using the sidebar on the left. The sidebar allows you to add different elements such as text, buttons, icons, counters, and more while the + icon on the page allows you to add different blocks such as headers, testimonials, services, footers, and others.
As mentioned earlier, Brizy allows you to add various building blocks to your pages which include headers, footers, and other blocks. Those blocks have already been pre-designed so all you have to do is adjust the styling to match your brand.
As you can see from the screenshot, all the styling options are front and center, close to the element you're editing. This eliminates the visual clutter and allows you to focus on the section you're working on. You can also create a section from scratch and then save it as your own template and reuse it in later designs.
Brizy allows you to edit the contents of any block or element directly on the page. You can adjust the styling option for any block on the page, resize images and columns, set styles as global styles, and more. This makes it easier to see the changes as you’re making them without refreshing the page.
What’s more, you can also change any background image to a slider and enable or disable the parallax effect. Brizy allows you to choose between an animated parallax or a fixed parallax and you can even control which part of the image will be visible in a particular section.
Brizy makes it easy to see how your website will appear on mobile devices and make adjustments as necessary. All you have to do is switch to the Mobile view using the sidebar on the left and you will be able to continue editing your site to ensure it works and looks great on any screen size.
Other Notable Features
Brizy comes with the ability to undo any changes you've made and it also auto-saves your work so you never have to worry about losing the changes you've made. You'll also find more than 4000 icons that will help you spice up your website's look.
Brizy Pros and Cons
When it comes to pros and cons, here’s where Brizy shines and where it falls short.
Advantages of Brizy Page Builder
- Brizy is easy to use and offers a true visual editing experience. You can make the adjustments and add elements and instantly see the changes happen on your page.
- It also includes stunning premade blocks that will help you speed up the design process.
- On top of that, you can easily reorder sections using the sidebar on the left and set global styles for your text elements and color scheme
Disadvantages of Brizy Page Builder
Considering Brizy is a new plugin, it doesn't have as many features as some of the more established page builder plugins such as Elementor, Divi, Thrive Themes, and others. None the less, the plugin is easy to use and can be used to create a beautiful website.
How Does Brizy Compare to Other Page Builder Plugins
As mentioned earlier, Brizy doesn't have as many features as some of the other page builder plugins but that is to be expected from a new plugin that's still being developed. However, the features Brizy offers are on par with plugins such as Elementor or Divi. In fact, Brizy seems to take the best features of other page builders and combines them into an easy-to-use plugin with plenty of promising features.
When it comes to theme compatibility, according to the developers, Brizy can be used with Astra, OceanWP, GeneratePress, and Hestia. You can even choose whether you want to use Brizy template or your theme’s default template when creating posts and pages.
Lastly, Brizy is also WooCommerce compatible so you can even use it to build an online store with ease.
Brizy can be downloaded for free from the official plugin repository. A Pro version is in the works and you can pre-order it now from Brizy's website. The cost for the pro version is $215, allows you to install the plugin on an unlimited number of websites, and includes lifetime support and updates. Additional features that will be available in the Pro version include:
- Premium designs
- Popup builder
- Role manager
- A/B testing
- And more
Even though Brizy is a new plugin, it certainly is a worthy contender when it comes to page builder plugins. If you want to easily create your site using a drag and drop interface and be able to style every element of your page, consider giving Brizy a try.
