If you generally hate WordPress page builders, check out LiveCanvas: the only page builder that outputs super clean, Bootstrap 5 - flavoured HTML5 code, which you can always edit and refine via a built-in live code editor.
Build faster webpages that achieve better SEO results.
The LiveCanvas plugin can run upon any Bootstrap 5-based WordPress Theme, but to reach top performance results and ultimate customization, we recommend using picostrap5, our ultra-lightweight Bootstrap 5-based starter theme.
This is our recipe to quickly build successful web pages that effectively deliver your message and load blazingly fast.

You can use LiveCanvas on your entire WordPress site, to craft both individual pages and dynamic templates as well, including custom post types.
Enjoy fine-grain control on your site, with edge-to-edge precision.

"Before I worked with LiveCanvas, I tried various PageBuilders. There were also some good ones, but I thought they were always a bit inflexible and a bit overloaded... "

"chelseaelectricians.co.uk was a redesign of an old html site that did not rank in the first 100 SERP listings for the term chelsea electricians. They started to climb up the SERPS almost immediately - hovering around page 3 - 4 for a week or so. They now rank at #9 on page 1."

"I just relaunched my website with Livecanvas and I am overwhelmed by the results regarding performance. As a SEO consultant it is important for me and my clients to implement websites with great core web vitals results. Before the relaunch my website was running based on the the DIVI theme...
I was trying to optimize the performance for years but never got better results than Pagespeed 50. Now the website reaches PageSpeed 100 (desktop) and 90 (mobile). CLS is 0. That is terrific."

Frequently Asked Questions
Most popular FAQ
Can I use LiveCanvas to create websites for clients?
Absolutely yes! You can use LiveCanvas on websites you build for clients - and they do not need to buy their own license.
How does it work? Why is it so fast?
The idea behind LiveCanvas is to minimize bloat, saving plain HTML inside the post_content field. This results in zero customer lock-in, and in extreme speed. You won't need caching plugins to make your homepage load at blazing speeds.
Which themes can I run LiveCanvas on?
Basically on every Bootstrap 4/5-based theme - but we recommend using it with picostrap5 - a very clean open source foundation, which adds some spice while keeping bloat at zero. You can find a more detailed answer in this blog post.
Can I integrate LiveCanvas with extra plugins?
Of course. You can place any shortcode inside LiveCanvas pages.
Does LiveCanvas add JS or CSS to my site?
Zero. Not at all. No extra CSS or JS file is added to your site. No inline style or script.
The main philosophy behind LiveCanvas is to help build extremely DRY sites.
Can LiveCanvas work with Gutenberg?
The LiveCanvas editor can be selectively enabled on pages / posts / custom post types - leaving the work to Gutenberg, or the Classic editor, where it's not enabled.
Can I turn off the LiveCanvas plugin after building the site?
While most page builders lock you in their proprietary systems, LiveCanvas talks pure HTML - so the basic answer is YES, you can do that - But we feel it makes very little sense, as the LiveCanvas plugin does not slow your site in any way.
Can I export a page built with LiveCanvas outside WordPress?
Yes. An option allows to download the page content, surrounded by the standard Bootstrap template - the one recommended in the Bootstrap documentation - so if you're not using dynamic shortcodes or advanced features, you can export a simple landing page in one click, in a simple, independent HTML file.
Do you offer a Demo version?
We offer a full 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, so you can try LiveCanvas without risk.
