Fusion Builder vs Fusion Builder Live

06/10/2019

With the release of Avada 6.0, Avada now comes with TWO interfaces for the Fusion Builder; the existing Fusion Builder, and the new Fusion Builder Live Editor. The original Fusion Builder is not being removed, but will remain, offering you choice over how you like to edit your pages. Here are the main differences between the two:

Fusion Builder

The Fusion Builder we all know and love hasn’t changed. This is a back-end wireframe editor that allows you to build content quickly, using our system of Containers, Columns, and Elements. You design and layout your pages as you wish, using our easy to use drag and drop editor, and then preview the result in a new window.

Many of our users are very familiar with this process and find it fast and efficient. But things are always moving forward here at ThemeFusion, and with Fusion Builder Live, we have also introduced a new way of building pages.

Fusion Builder Live Editor

With the Fusion Builder Live Editor, you edit your content directly on the front-end. You can see your layout as you build it, and any changes you make update immediately as you make them.

Additionally, with Fusion Builder Live, you have direct access to the Fusion Theme Options, as well as the Fusion Page Options, on the same page, as you build. This can speed your workflow significantly.

In most other ways, the two builders are the same. There are interface and workflow differences, but they both use the same Container, Column and Element structure, and controls. The content that both builders generate is also identical, and so there is full compatibility between the two builders. You can even toggle the Wireframe view in Fusion Builder Live, which essentially is the back-end builder in the front-end interface.

So with Fusion Builder, we have now just doubled your options, giving you two ways to build your website. Welcome to the best of both worlds!
