Though we have ways to go, DW Builder is already making huge improvements. With DW Builder, you just do it your way!

DW Builder Is For Whom?
DW Builder is a dedicated builder tool for WordPress CMS to build pages, landing pages, layouts based on pre-made content blocks and powerful options to help any user handle all the website development work with ease. Newbies will have fun learning and developers would love it.
DW Builder and Its Unique Features
#1 Control Over Layout
A great design starts with the structure of the page. Controlling the various page elements, the gaps between widgets, their width, height, and positioning, can truly make or break a design. DW Builder gives you a lot more control over these settings than ever possible on a live page builder. The builder works on the front-end, open the page and edit. We are sure you would love the simplicity. See your page take shape right in front of your eyes in real time. No, save then preview anymore.
#2 Build Pages Based on Pre-made Blocks
The tool includes lots of block types and each block type has multiple options (we are adding more pretty soon) to help you build stunning pages in just a few clicks.
- Call to actions
- Features Intro
You can add the block to any position on the page by hovering over the block and opting for “Add Block”, select block type and select layout.
#3 Inline Content Editing
One of WordPress weakness is editing the content, at times it can be really hard as templates have different ways to organize the layout and load content to front-end, including modules, articles, 3rd party extensions, etc.
This is where DW Builder will be of help, now you can edit content inline, just click on the text you want to edit and you can also choose formatting options right in the front end.
#4 Powerful Options to Customize
DW Builder has all basic options one would need to customize text or images in the blocks, no coding required. Just hover the element you want to edit and hit the setting icon, a list of options to customize the element will pop up for you to get creative.
#5 Configure Layouts with Ease
You can edit layout for any page. You can change the width of the main content section, sidebar, add 2 or 3 columns layout, select type (main content for the module).
#6 No Pain of Upgrade
The tool will be located on our server, so we take care of the upgrades such as adding more blocks, sample sites, features and your editing options are auto-updated when you edit your site. So, next time you want to use any added feature, just start editing your site and the options would be auto available. Absolutely no maintenance required from your side.
#7 Clean Markup
The tool is developed by our best and experienced web developer to make the markup of the content blocks clean and well structured and optimized.
#8 Users Friendly
We are releasing DW Builder as open source and a large part of the reason we are doing so is to utilize the power of the WordPress developers community, in order to enhance DW Builder even further. We want developers from all over the world to contribute to DW Builder and help make it the ultimate plugin for web designers. Following are some other features that make DW Builder developer friendly.
This directly relates to what we mentioned previously concerning clean code. DW Builder is based on the most recommended coding standards, making your pages SEO optimized out of the box. The resulting page designed with DW Builder will also have a fast load time, a crucial factor for SEO.
