Has anyone ever used "Page Builder by SiteOrigin" before?

Curious to know if this will work just as well for me as if I just design the page on wordpress then adjusting it with either html/css coding

If you decide you want something a bit different, my company recently released a frontend page builder that is the fastest page builder, and its totally free.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

Wouldn't go anywhere near it. It'll generate code that you don't need or want. I may be wrong but it's the first thought I have about drag and drop web design.

You know what, I actually downloaded it the next day just to try it. I wasted two hours of my time with that wordpress plugin. For it to be used properly, I had to download more plugins for the full features. I just didn't want to write out some coding for the site and was trying a shortcut. I learned my lesson that day. As I said before, I wasted two hours. Drag and drop websites, sorry but they never grabbed my attention. I think that is a poor man way to design a website. Just saying... Thanks for the feedback Matthew, stay in touch. I might need more feedback in other areas of front end and back end designing.
