Drag and drop website builder; a new shift in the WordPress community.
Earlier this feature was available for business, portfolio, commercial, or another business-oriented site.
Such websites need a static page, where you can add the elements by dragging and dropping and give you website an elegant, sophisticated, or a sleek look.
I have personally used all of them, and I got 100% satisfaction after using them. Although you'll find something missing in almost all drag and drop builders, and everything can be designed with little tweaks.
I am using a custom WordPress framework for this blog which gives me a great satisfaction and freedom to do anything with the theme.
Even I can design some complicated landing pages using this framework, but coding every page separately is seriously a tedious task.
I wanted something that could integrate with my current theme and give me the freedom to build professional-looking landing pages as well as give freedom to create stunning blog posts with visual elements.
So here I found Thrive Architect.
