I created an account just to leave this review to prevent aybody else from the frustrations I feel every time I deal with this hot garbage. This is single handedly the worst builder I've ever encountered in 15+ years of using wordpress. Only bother with this plugin if you hate yourself, and plan to never update your website EVER. I inherited maintenance of several websites using this plugin and these are the infuriating problems I encounter every time I try to do even so much as change a sentence. —Am forced to use the front-end editor, despite full tools being available in the backend, they don't actually DO anything. You can save and update the page as many times as you like. They don't work in the backend, at all. —Have to copy the HTML for whatever I'm working on before starting because it only goes downhill from here. —Have to make IDENTICAL changes in both the WYSIWYG <b>AND</b> the HTML (don't forget to backup your HTML again), or nothing changes at all and it reverts to whatever you started with... if you're lucky. If you're not lucky you might get an even older version of what you're working on for some bizarre reason, even if you've successfully saved incremental steps. —Save and pray, because 99.99% chance all your work just reverted and you have to start over. Changes so simple that they should take only a matter of minutes can turn into a project of several hours because of how awful this builder is. Do yourself and anybody you might have look at your website a favor and DO NOT USE THIS.

Good, light and easy builder. Works good, fast speed of all pages made with it. Also Themify themes are easy to use and with a very good page speed etc.

I thought I should submit a review stating that I had a problem with a Themify theme breaking another plugin, but Themify technical support stuck with me until my problem was resolved. (I paid for the theme, and am in my first, supported, year.) I submitted a support ticket and was amazed when I got a response from a support person within 24 hours. The support person stuck with me, answering questions and giving me solutions, until the problem was solved. This took about a week, but each response came within 24 hours, pretty much. I'm not used to getting support this good.

I liked this plugin and the free version is OK. However, think carefully before upgrading to the pro version. It is subscription based and if you do not renew your subscription it will probably break your web site. I chose not to renew and my website became a screen of PHP errors citing "Themify" addons as the cause. I couldn't even login to the backend to remove the plugin. This was despite the Themify web site clearly stating that users are permitted to continue using the plugin without support or updates if they do not renew their subscription.

If you use it without a Themify-Theme than there are so many bugs from version to version. New bugs with a bugfix for another bug.
