The Bricks community is a wonderful collective of users and developers, who are creating amazing resources to help on your Bricks Builder journey.

Our agency has used Divi primarily for years now and it suits out needs and more importantly our clients needs and technical skills.

The pathway from then to now have turned out ten thousandfold as a result of Divi, a platform many like, but others have mixed feelings about. For someone like me, who not too long ago had no coding experience at all, it’s always been an invaluable tool that allows me to design and launch sites within no time. Add to the vast world of addons, it is a joy to use.

Within a short time of discovering Bricks Builder, it was clear to me that this was the program we needed to employ going forward. I’m excited about the possibility of Thomas and Bricks Builder’s future together.

We take a (very brief) look at two WordPress Themes and Page Builders: Divi, from Elegant Themes, and Bricks Builder. We look at how content is laid out on a page with sections, columns, and elements. Importantly, Bricks has much more control over flex direction, has divs and blocks as elements you can add within rows/columns, and global theme customization that differs from Divi.
