WPBakery Page Builder has a lot to offer, but using various available WPBakery addons will add even more features and options.
When building a page with WPBakery Page Builder, you can mostly use WPBakery Page Builder built-in elements. But luckily, WPBakery is extendable.
When a plugin becomes popular, third-party developers will start building their plugins to extend the core plugin’s functionality. That happened with WPBakery Page Builder plugin.
Wide variety of add-ons have been developed for it thanks to a big community of users.
These add-ons are installed in the same way a plugin is, and they allow you to extend the list of elements you can use with WPBakery.
You can extend the WPBakery Page Builder in two ways. Using dedicated WPBakery add-ons, and using WPBakery compatible plugins (like Easy Social Share Buttons for WordPress).
Most of the add-ons are built by third-party developers, although the WPBakery developers have built a few of their own.
WPBakery Builder was built to be extended. The developers openly encourage add-ons. To this date, the list consists of 100 items, and they cost anywhere from $3 to $24.
Extending the functionality of WPBakery Page Builder is incredibly easy. You install the add-on in the same way as a regular plugin.
When you next go to use the plugin, and you’ll now be able to see the extra elements available to you, courtesy of the add-on.
While installing add-ons is easy, choosing the right ones is a little more complicated.
If you are confused about why did Visual Composer became WPBakery Page Builder and also why there is a new plugin called Visual Composer Website Builder, you can read my post where I deeply explained this confusing situation.
