Chronosly and Page Builders

Hey guys, we were busy working on Chronosly improves.
On this new release, 2.7.3, we were focused on Chronosly event manager compatibility with most important page builders on the WordPress world.

Page builder is a plugin or theme’s component to customize and design pages quick and easy. Most of you will be already familiar with the HTML components of the ‘Text’ view and actual ‘Visual’ preview of content in the WordPress visual editor. Page builders are the advanced childs of the WordPress visual editor.

Page builders use components to build responsive page layouts inside a grid view.
To understand how it works, they are similar to the WordPress widgets sections, were we can just drag and drop the available widgets into a sidebar and rearrange them easily. Once we save the sidebar widgets, we get a sidebar on our site with many built in features without any coding required.
Page builders provide similar structure and features to the content but more complex and powerful, allowing to define every pixel of our layout and include a bunch of components like image gallery, video players, button creator...
In short, a page builder is a perfect tool for designing websites fast, with quality design and without needing to know code.
