Maple Builder allows you to edit your page using a visual, drag and drop builder.
Here are the fundamentals
1. There is a library of rows, columns, and modules that are the building blocks of your page.
2. When you edit a page, you edit each block individually (see screenshot example)
3. You can design your own pages or start with a template

While WordPress is the platform we use to manage content, Maple Builder is the suite of software that is installed on your website to give you creative superpowers. With the builder, you have more control over your website layouts and content without needing to learn code.

Maple/Beaver Builder is Here to Stay
In case you're wondering, Maple isn't a software company, so we didn't engineer this ourselves. Instead, we license the entire suite of software, giving you more functionality.
Instead of code and software development, we specialize in user-first design – for us that includes clients as well as visitors on their websites. To best serve our clients, we use licensed software to provide a top-notch page builder on Maple websites called Beaver Builder.
This is a popular drag and drop builder that is known for its stability, support, and effectiveness. You can read all about it at www.wpbeaverbuilder.com By making it our own, we can provide an experience and support for clients that is unlike any other. Plus, you can get the entire suite of software for a fraction of the price.
Rather than using an affiliate link and referring people to a basic version of the software, we purchased an agency level license to Beaver Builder, which has additional features and gives us the ability to customize your website based on the way you use it. The benefit of licensed software is that actual experts are continuing to develop, improve, and support it.
