Beaver Builder vs. X Cornerstone

Today I want to compare two builders available out in the WordPress world. I have fairly substantial experience with both and want to share my thoughts. These are my thoughts only.

Where to Buy

Beaver Builder is available on the WordPress repository and available at a cost on their website ($99/ $199 / $399). The top tier versions of the plugin also comes with the Beaver Builder Theme. Cornerstone is the builder packaged with the X theme and is available on ThemeForest for $39.

Ease of Use

Beaver Builder for me is one of the easiest builders to use. It is fully drag and drop from the front end and very easy to pick and choose the module you want to add in. Cornerstone from the X theme is a bit more cumbersome to learn but once you get the hang of it, it is fairly easy to build out pages. The shortcodes are though fairly well documented on their site.


Beaver Builder is one of the best extendible builders I have seen out there. There are a number of add-ons available for purchase such as Beaver Add-ons or Ultimate Beaver Add-ons.


My vote goes to Beaver Builder! It is solid has a number of extensions available and has an incredible community ready to help. Let me know what you think and what your experience is with different builders.
