We compare 2 of the most popular platforms for web creation of the moment here. Both have a free and a pro version. Kadence vs Elementor, which is the better system? We start with the Elementor pagebuilder which does not mean it would be better.
Elementor is now pretty much one of the best-known page builders for WordPress. The page builder continues to improve, just like their own website, which is getting better and better. In this Elementor Review, we’re going to take a look at why Elementor is loved by such a large audience. The addition of their own theme called Hello Elementor certainly plays a part in their success.
Elementor Page Builder Review
The elementor pagebuilder works very fast and is very easy to understand for every layman. This does not mean that professionals do not like to work with it, on the contrary. This website was put together by me with Elementor and everything runs smoothly. Below you can see how you can build a page in the blink of an eye using drag & drop.
Elementor Review 90 widgets
Elementor has about 90 widgets which you can see here, a very high number for a page builder. Another word for widgets is elements, which immediately explains the name of the page builder. There are a lot of companies that offer extra widgets for Elementor like for example one of the best: Astra’s Ultimate Elementor. Below check out the basic widgets (the pro widgets appear on hover).
The Navigator appears floating when you right-click a widget and select “Navigator”. You now see a list with all widgets and sections neatly under each other and you can jump anywhere quickly. Everyone will use the Navigator in their own way. I mainly use it to drag widgets or sections to another position. Without the Navigator, this is sometimes a very difficult task.
Elementor Conversion & Leads
Leads and conversion are of course very important for every website today. In the example below you can see that Elementor has very nice designs for forms, landing pages and the like. You can read more about Elementor’s conversion here.
Elementor Review Woocommerce
In the widgets chapter you already saw a whole block with extra widgets for Woocommerce. Every self-respecting theme or page builder these days is well prepared for the collaboration with the most popular plugin for E-commerce called Woocommerce and that goes for Elementor as well. Read more about everything Elementor has to offer for the construction of shops here.
Elementor's Theme Builder
In this Elementor Review we are not going to forget the ThemeBuilder, of course. The Themebuilder has been added with one of the latest upgrades and gives total control over the headers, footers and other global items on your website. The adjustments you make here are carried out on your entire website in one go. Read more about the Theme Builder here.
The absolute best program for popups for me is Poptins, but we can see here that Elementor already has popups integrated which makes it practically unnecessary to spend any more money on it. Pop-ups, if used properly and not annoying, are certainly a great way to increase sales in affiliate marketing or generate more leads for businesses.
Elementor has very reasonable prices regardless of whether it is for 1 website or many websites in the case of a professional design agency. If you purchase Elementor, buying a theme is basically unnecessary, which makes the page builder even more attractive.
Elementor Review Conclusion
It is with great pleasure that I have written this Elementor Review. It’s always nice to write about a good product that sells itself. Elementor is simply one of the best page builders out there. Tastes differ, so one has it at 1 and the other at 3, but we cannot deny that this is a top product. Elementor is an absolute killer.
Let’s continue this Kadence vs Elementor Review with the Kadence Theme.
The Kadence Theme
This Kadence Theme Review will quickly show you what to expect from this increasingly popular theme. There are people who think that this is the best current free WordPress theme and I have to say it is certainly up there together with Astra and a few other themes.
Kadence's Rating 5/5
The Kadence theme can be downloaded for free via their own site or via WordPress.org where it is one of the most popular themes with a very high rating. The theme is already above 100,000 active installs. In other words, it is currently installed on more than 100,000 websites. You can see all this data in the images below.
Kadence's Demo Websites
This video shows you exactly how to import a demo website into your WordPress which is a bit different then most themes operate. The video on the right starts exactly where the demos are mentioned. To learn how to import the plugin for this, watch the video from the beginning.
Kadence Theme Review Performance
We are running a Kadence Theme Test on loading speed at GT-Metrix. We use a website with the Kadence Theme with optimized images and the best cache plugin out there, WP-Rocket. This cache plugin already works fine once installed, but in this case we also set it up perfectly to achieve the best possible results. You can see these results below, the theme is amazingly fast.
Kadence's Page Builders
Kadence is a special theme that works very well with the Gutenberg Editor, which is an exception because it is actually not possible to work with it on its own since Gutenberg is still in the testing phase. Kadence does this by using a plug-in they developed themselves called Kadence Blocks. Of course, the theme also works perfectly with the Elementor page builder or any other elite page builder.
Kadence Theme Review Colors
The Kadence theme offers 12 pre-programmed color combinations, which also include feminine websites and Light & Dark Colors. The programming of the colors was carried out by a professional team. Incidentally, it is certainly possible to make personal adjustments to such a color combination.
Kadence Header Editor
Apart from compatibility with all top page builders, the Kadence theme is also compatible with plugins that are important to many people. These include The Events Calendar, Learndash, Woocommerce, LifterLMS, and a few more. It allows you to sell products, conduct courses, solicit donations, or lead a forum through your website.
My take on Kadence is that it’s no surprise that its free version has become so popular. Even the free version is already very good, and the pro version takes it even further. Kadence can really be used for all types of website and I can definitely recommend the theme for both beginners and pros. However, there are themes that are even better, such as Astra or Ocean-WP, but more about that in another article.
Kadence vs Elementor Conclusion
In this Kadence vs Elementor comparison we can immediately say that these 2 are hardly comparable. On the other hand, the combination of Elementor and Kadence is great. On its own, Elementor is the cream of the crop in the field of page builders and Kadence is a very good theme. Both are recommended.
