Whats the difference between Upfront Builder plugin and theme?

When should I use Upfront Builder plugin? Is it exactly the same thing as the theme? With the exactly same features? Should I try a different theme than Upfront for any reason? Thank you!

    Hello diegpl,

    No, Builder and Editor are not the same thing. From manuals https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/working-with-the-upfront-builder/

    The Upfront Builder is a plugin which allows theme creators to export their customized Upfront starter themes, and build completely custom Upfront themes from scratch.

    When should I use Upfront Builder plugin?

    When you want to create new Upfront theme from scratch or change one of the existing themes and then export it so it can be moved to another site.

    We are actually using Builder to build child themes for Upfront.

    Upfront Editor is part of Upfront theme framework and it it used to edit your site: add new posts, pages, edit content.

    Builder is used to create page templates, posts layouts - or edit them - but not to create content like in Editor.

    Should I try a different theme than Upfront for any reason?

    Different one like Divi? I think that is entirely up to you if you want to try another theme :slight_smile:

    kind regards,
    Kasia
