LiveCanvas is a page builder aimed specifically at those who want to build great websites without getting too far from the HTML code, but reducing fatigue.
Tim Bowerbank, an App Developer at Pendigital Limited UK, says after leaving WordPress “a few years back for static site generators” that “LiveCanvas has made me explore WordPress again.”
Striving to make code simple, the all-in-one website builder comes with various high-performance features that enable you to build a professional WordPress website that can boost your SEO results and increase the amount of traffic and exposure on your page.
The idea behind LiveCanvas is to minimise bloat, saving plain HTML inside the post_content field. This results in zero customer lock-in and no need for caching plugins to load your homepage at blazing speeds.
André Wunsch, a Web Designer in Berlin, Germany, celebrates LiveCanvas and states that after trying “various PageBuilders” compared to the speed and accessibility provided by LiveCanvas, he thought “they were always a bit inflexible and a bit overloaded.”
Start From Readymade elements and speed up your work
LiveCanvas comes with a built-in collection of readymade pages, sections, and blocks that you can use to start your WordPress website, which are solid, fully responsive, and battle-tested on several different devices, as well as being coded in clean, SEO-friendly HTML5 code that leverages the Bootstrap framework at its best.
Thanks to the built-in SASS support, these flexible elements dynamically adapt to your design system, helping you achieve a coherent visual language with a central point of control.
LiveCanvas also has a powerful code editor in their WordPress page builder where you can hand re-edit all the generated HTML code.

Kemal Esensoy, a Web Designer at wunderlandmedia.com, Germany, applauds LiveCanvas’ list of features, remarking that he “thought oxygen builder would be the best choice to swap with custom theme development” but found he was “wrong” and that “the work put into the product is worth much more than that lifetime license price.”
