Building and customizing a WordPress site is often time-consuming and requires you to have some technical background. That’s where the WordPress site builders come into play. These site builders allow you to build, edit, and customize your WordPress site without writing any code.

To get started with any traditional WordPress site builder, you need to have access to the theme that is compatible with it. Moreover, sometimes dragging and dropping the elements makes it difficult to maintain the overall structure of a site.

All this requires a significant learning curve to get started with a site builder, especially for the beginners.

If you are planning to build your next WordPress site in a different and really quick way. Then the revamped site builder plugin – Oxygen 2.0 is a definite try! WPCouple has previously reviewed Oxygen 1.0 back in Oct 2017. At that time this relatively new page builder showed great potential, but we didn’t expect it to improve at such a fast pace β€” which is pretty incredible. Today, it has gone through several significant updates and evolved into Oxygen 2.0.

Exploring the Oxygen 2.0 was a wonderful experience, and I am super excited to share it with you. So let’s get started right away!

Oxygen 2.0

Oxygen 2.0 is an all-in-one visual drag and drop site builder plugin for WordPress. It protects you from the hassle of testing out dozens of themes to get the compatible one. With its pre-built Design sets and Template handling, you can create a complete WordPress site using the visual editor. That means no coding at all!

Oxygen Header

It includes all the elements of pre-built draggable modules like header, footer, rows, columns, etc. You can also access stylesheets and selectors directly. No matter what level user you are, you can easily jump into building WordPress sites using Oxygen 2.0 right away.

Soflyy – the team behind this intuitive plugin, has struggled for more than a year to make it stand against its competitors. With the release of major updates as Oxygen 2.0, the team has also launched a new site against the URL πŸ‘‰https://OxygenBuilder.com

While talking toΒ Louis Reingold, the man behind Soflyy and some great plugins like WP All Import, told that initially people didn’t have some great expectations with Oxygen and many predicted that it was going to fail. But the team remained focused and delivered what was expected of them and for all their critics it was Oxygen 2.0 that was launched on June 20th this year!

πŸ“Œ Setup and Configuration

Setting up and configuring Oxygen 2.0 is a matter of a few clicks. All you have to do is follow some real quick steps given below:

Step #1

Step #3

Once the plugin has been installed, you will need to activate it. Activating the plugin will bring up a WelcomeΒ Screen having two setup options, i.e.,Β Premade Website and Blank Installation.

Oxygen Options

πŸ‘Š Premade WebsiteΒ is the default and recommended option especially for the beginners. It helps you to set up a complete site within seconds using the premade designs.

You can choose from the number of pre-built and elegant design sets. Design sets completely replace the WordPress themes. Hit the Browse Library option to explore them.

Oxygen Design Set

From here you can install a complete design set for your site and can customize it later. You can also check out the demo for each design set to get familiar with the layout and looks of a design set. So you can easily decide and choose a right design for your site.

😈 Blank Installation β€”Β If you are a design fanatic and a pro designer, then this option is for you. Moving on with this option will generate a completely blank site, and you are going to work from scratch.

Oxygen Blank Install

When I say working from scratch, then there is nothing to be worried about time or efforts. As the Oxygen visual editor and its library include tons of pre-built elements and modules that you are going to drag and drop to build a complete site. It makes working from scratch easier, time-saving and full of creativity.

πŸ’ Features & Key Highlights of Oxygen 2.0

Whether you go for a premade or a blank website, there are some super dope features worth mentioning. Let’s quickly go through them.

Visual Editor

With Oxygen 2.0 visual editor, you can achieve a lot more than any traditional site builder. The addition of dragging and dropping of the pre-built elements and modules makes it intriguing than before. You can create and customize any content likes pages, posts, templates, etc. using Oxygen visual editor.

If you create a blank page or post in WordPress and then edit with Oxygen editor, you’ll get a screen something like this:

Oxygen Add Menu

Another noteworthy change which I liked the most in Oxygen Editor is the ability to manage the structure of a content conveniently. Once you have added the bulk of elements to create your content, you can easily handle it or even rearrange it from the Structure tab at the top.

Oxygen Structure

The Structure tab shows you the complete hierarchy of your content and highlights the currently selected element. In this way, you can get an idea about the exact location of any element on your site.

You might also notice that whenever you select an element, a new menu appears at the right sidebar. From this menu, you can easily customize the primary and advanced attributes of an element.

If you switch to the Advanced option, it allows you to tweak various settings including CSS and JavaScript without switching to any other editor.

Oxygen Advanced Option

You might have an idea that you can literally create 100% of your site using Oxygen Visual Editor and that too with great ease and comfort.

🎨 Design Sets

Oxygen Library includes some new, elegant and prebuilt design sets. This number is going to grow a lot in the future. This design sets completely remove your WordPress theme out of the picture. You will find no trace of it in your front end code!

πŸ’¬ Conclusions & Recommendations

If you have had experience of using Oxygen 1.0, you’ll be pretty glad to see the improvements in Oxygen 2.0. It is packed with some major upgrades like:

  • πŸš₯ Templating system.
  • 🎑 Drag and drop editing.
  • πŸŽ—User-friendly visual editor.
  • 🍭 Wide range of pre-built design sets.
  • 🚧 Ability to manage the site structure and much more.

I really liked the way I can adjust and rescale the margins between different elements just by dragging the cursor. However, to resize an element, you need to click on it and adjust its height and width from the right sidebar. It would be great if there’s the ability to resize the elements using a cursor.

Moreover, because Oxygen 2.0 is one of the most power-packed page builders currently available, it deserves a properΒ facetime. I’d suggest their team to revise their marketing strategy and put in more effort to bring light and promote this awesome product. I’m sure there’s a huge chunk of audience which still needs to know that there exists this fantastic feature-rich WordPress site builder called Oxygen 2.0.
