About Brizy Page Builder:
Brizy is a new WordPress page builder, it is run by a solid WordPress company, Themefuse. They have been around since 2010 and are well-known for their original, beautiful designs.
A brief look at the WordPress repo shows that the free version of Brizy Page builder now has 40,000 active installations since launching in April 2018. Brizy is updated frequently and has gone from version 0.1.0 on April 2018 to version 1.0.63 at the time of writing (June 2019).
Furthermore, Brizy Pro, the premium add-on, receives much love and updates from the team too.
Key features of the Brizy page builder
To start off our Brizy page builder review, I’m going to cover the most important features, which should kind of wrap up all the strengths and possibilities you’ll have if you decide to use it on your website.
- Clutter free. Once you start working with the tool, you notice its simplicity. You won’t stumble upon unneeded elements of any kind. The plugin just works and provides what it claims to provide. No more, no less.
- Intuitive drag-and-drop interface. I remember testing other similar tools and having a hard time trying to understand what’s the role of a specific option or where should I find this and that. Well, I didn’t have this issue with Brizy. Everything is straight and smooth… like a breeze.
- Over 150 pre-made blocks. These include multipurpose templates and layouts that you can customize. If you won’t find one to match your ideas, you can at least pick one that’s close to your expectations and re-arrange it to your liking.
- Global styling. You can set up global styles for things like colors and typography to apply by default and then just edit individual blocks as needed.
- Mobile-friendly. The plugin offers a mobile view, so you can see exactly how the page you intend to build looks on a phone screen. This way, you have the possibility to adjust the elements and optimize them for other devices.
- Design elements. Aside from the ready-made blocks, there’s a bunch of elements to help you stylize your pages. You can remove or add buttons, counters, icons, tabs, images, audio/video, columns/rows, forms, progress bars (and more) in just a few seconds.
- Cloud auto-save. You shouldn’t worry about losing the adjustments you’ve been working on for a long time because all your work will be stored in a cloud.
- Flexible customization. When you’re editing a pre-built page, you don’t need to stick to its default structure. You can always re-order blocks, change backgrounds (image, video, parallax), redo/undo actions, adjust the paddings and margins, edit the text and the images etc.
- Over 4000 icons included. The icons are available in Outline and Glyph versions.
- Now, we’re going to take our Brizy page builder review little more flexible.
Brizy works well with any theme that is well coded and includes a 100% width template or layout option. It also includes it’s own blank page template. Be aware though that the Brizy template doesn’t display the header or footer sections. That makes it great for distraction-free landing pages but not a regular page.
INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL
Installing Brizy Pro
Brizy Pro is a premium add on for the free Brizy plugin so you’ll need both installed on your WordPress site. After purchasing the pro add on, the download link and license can be found in your account on brizy.io.
Removing Brizy Pro And Lock In
Brizy Pro isn’t exactly shortcode based but it does use something similar. After deactivating, there is a a lot of leftover code. If you plan to edit that content or switch to another page builder then you’ll need to manually remove it all first.
Brizy is currently free for downloading from their website and the WordPress plugin repository.
Brizy Pro is currently available but licenses are still available. All licenses come with complimentary access to Brizy Cloud.
- $49 3 sites license with 1 year of support and plugin updates
- $99 Unlimited sites license with 1 year of support and plugin updates
- $299 Ultimate Use license for unlimited sites with lifetime support and plugin updates. This is a limited time offer for early adopters. I can’t think of another page builder with this good of a plan! If you’re willing to gamble that Brizy will iron out the kinks in their Pro page builder, then this deal shouldn’t be passed up.
PERFORMANCE AND UPDATE
The Brizy Pro live editing interface loads very quickly. During my testing, I very seldomly experienced any slowness or lag with the live preview.
On the front end, a Brizy Pro built pages load fast.
The Brizy team has been busy. According to Brizy Pro’s changelog, they’ve has been releasing updates at least every two weeks and sometimes as often as every few days. At this pace, I expect that they’ll soon address some if not all of the shortcomings that I found.
CUSTOMER SUPPORT AND DOCUMENTATION
Brizy uses GitHub to provide customer support. Users will need to create a GitHub account to create a support request. GitHub is a great tool used by development teams worldwide as a customer support tool.
There are quite a few open support requests that have not been addressed by Brizy support. A significant number of the open bug reports are weeks old with no response.
With all this in mind, let’s get down to the question, “Would we recommend it?”
Absolutely, “YES”. Brizy Pro is a very valuable service for any business provides best page builder tool in the whole market.
For the purpose of this review, I have used this WordPress Website builder for a total of three weeks so far. Within that time frame my account experienced was just awesome.
So if you’re looking to spread brand awareness on the platform, Brizy will do the trick nicely.
