    It is one of the best investments i made. The community around it is great, and the most important think is that developers listen to the community and implement the features quickly and effectively.

    Bricks offers so much to the community in terms of performance and ease of use for end users. I’m very excited to see what the future holds for this builder.

    They did not tell you how fast it is. In building designs and later on the frontend. Hope the WooC implementation will rock. Definitely worth the first try prices.

    To those thinking whether bricks is similar to Oxygen or not… It’s not.
    Oxygen is geared more towards coders, while bricks focuses more for non coders but still keeps the options for coders as well.

    Long story short it’s the best of Elementor & Oxygen. Making this a truly unique builder/theme.

    And let’s not get started on how good the build is based on Vue.js3. this comment box would turn into an article to appreciate truly this

    Looks very promising, similar to Elementor in certain areas, intuitive gui, the responsive settings on top of page also seem a nice feature.

    The best builder in the market at the moment. Clearly cutting edge and super fast, this is the most important aspect of it. The second is the builder interface which listened to the feedback of all the other builders, pros and cons and implemented them all into one single product. The interface is very powerful, responsive and fast, and the UX is amazing and amazing and builds with the user in mind. You have all the tools in the right place right where you’d expect them.

    I’m a die hard Elementor fan but feel they’ve become quite ‘corporate’. This won’t stop me from using Elementor again, but I much rather spend my give-back-to-the-WP-community currency supporting a new player like Bricks.

    Testing Bricks was also an opportunity for me to finally build my personal site and… damn it’s fast! :)

    While it has a similar appearance to Oxygen (if you install additional plugins), this is significantly faster and easier to use. Thomas and team have been making huge strides in a short period of time and this is the benchmark for this type of solution (IMO). On the negative side, if you are concerned about WCAG compliance, it is not there yet (on the roadmap). My purchase was an investment for what I think it will be, not what it is.

    The very first thing Bricks made me impressed was the speed of the site builder. Next is the performance of the website speed created with Bricks. It is blazing fast and lightweight.

    I started my first site with Bricks. The way it took was so simple and easy, to begin with( I didn’t code much with it). Even though Bricks is still very new and not a mature builder(soon, it’ll be solid). But Thomas Ehrig and his team work very hard to solve all the bugs(we encountered while using Bricks) and work on the upcoming features requested by the community to make BricksBuilder a powerful site builder.

    The most important is the devs of Bricks heard us; they cared about their users; this is what I love the most. Keep the good work!

    Best Regards,

    Well at least the price for 1000 sites is much cheaper than Elementor…

      Indeed. For now, we paid once for Bricks to get 1000 sites license. Not sure how much would that be when Bricks killed(might be) the Lifetime Deal in the future.

    I see lots of potential in the future… Personally I like bricks builder I truly believed within 3-4 month it will be more stable for clients. Great work team Bricks :)

    Looks so good!
    Everything one could expect from a powerful tool: speed of use, performance and efficiency – front & backend!
    I think WP should keep an eye on this.
    I wonder how this tool behaves in the block world..?
    Congrats to the team!

    gave bricks trust, for 2 important things (i already am an oxygen user and elementor and beaver builder with the agency i work with)
    support for all custom fields plugin(it’s one of the things i hate in oxygen, they support just acf and toolset both cost almost twice as the builder itself…).

    they have a public roadmap with user suggestions.

    i think other builders should learn a lot from bricks, even if it’s at its first releases it already have features others don’t have

    Thomas Ehrig is one of the nicest guys in the WordPress community. He’s also incredibly talented and a visionary.

    Give Bricks a try. It’s already amazing and will only get better.

    Great builder and great community! Bricks is at v1.2 but already better or on par with other established builders, which is a great accomplishment! Looking forward to seeing its development and using it on upcoming client projects.

    I rebuilt a design I made in minutes after grasping the new container concept. I love the fact that they are leveraging the new Vue 3 optimizations. I always regretted the decision from WordPress to use React (Facebook) over Vue…

    This builder is fast and amazing and going to be even more amazing down the road. I am happy to have onboarded in its early days, but I am still only playing with the Builder (testing and rebuild pages I made with other builders) … the 1.2 release is certainly a milestone and makes me confident to soon be building landing pages and full client sitesMax with Bricks Builder …

    Seems to be rather closed with regard to working with third party plugins. Definitely cannot use third party block plugins, though Bricks claims Gutenberg compatibility. Be careful with exactly what that means.

    Everything must be coded specifically to work with Bricks theme. I don’t find that so useful, while not being a coder myself.

    I see a lot of praise for this theme but I’m not that impressed. I’d rather work with a theme that enhances the block editor and allows third party blocks. Sure, it is exciting to see what Bricks can do, compared to the WordPress block editor today. How long is “lifetime” when Gutenberg w/enhancements becomes a site builder?

    How many plugins does this theme actually work with? In their group on Facebook, I see people suggesting that some pretty popular plugins don’t work well with Bricks theme. Why would someone create a theme that doesn’t work well with third party plugins? Where is the WordPress “Best practice” in that?

    Bricks is a shiny object right now. The developer(s) have already pushed back the release of some very important additions, missed their projected release of “woo” as well as Accessibility enhancements. That’s a biggie. What else aren’t they going to be able to keep up with?

    Great post Justin- I will be looking at it again for more discussion! Thank you for being a motivation in 2021. You’ve helped me see dreams come true in my own life. Excellent work from Thomas with the team. Keep up the great work!

    Played with Elementor, Brizy, Gutenberg. Bricks is the only page builder I have ever spent money on. Very impressive, and to me the selling features were the sync compatibility with Gutenberg, the fact it is not a plug in but a theme, and the reputation of Thomas. Now my sites will have so many less plugins to work the way they should, and I am excited with what is on the roadmap.

    The speed of updates and any bug fixes is amazing!

    This is Oxygen with some improvements but not as many features. I think that Bricks should detach from that Oxygen feeling, and go more for the Elementor – Brizy way, or find their own way, otherwise this will become just another tool for developers and not for the common user.

    They should make a newcomer feel at home and start building without watching tutorials. I think that their main competitor Zion Builder nailed that part better than them. I’m happy to see these new page builders rising, and make the old rusty page builders do something about it.

    Interesting review. I’ve been working with Elementor for many years, recently started using Oxygen, and now I want to try the new tool Bricks for myself.
