    The Elementor plugin is worth trying. I think the simpler your theme the better it will work.

    If you're looking for those fancy features in creating a website you'd probably best end up using Blocs App or something.

    You might want to look at the drag-and-drop web site builders: Weebly, Wix or Squarespace... designed from the ground up to be drag and drop, and (in my opinion, sure to be contested by others) much easier to deal with than Wordpress. Excellent for simple sites.

    I can't answer for Blocs.. But I use Cornerstone for several hours each day. As far as I am concerned, it is unrivaled. And there are a growing range of templates available too for anyone really looking to fast track.

    I would grab a template from theme forest.net for wordpress. One that has visual composer. Then you can mix and match all you want.

    You can try to integrate Mobirise website builder in Wordpress.
    Mobirise is one of the trusted tools I've used for building websites.

    X Theme, Elementor, and the Beaver Builder plugin are all good options.

    I'd definitely avoid Wix or Weebly though. In my experience, their page builders are clunky and you need to pay a ridiculous amount of money to get rid of their lame branding.

    You're best off going with a managed WordPress web hosting company like SiteGround, then installing X Theme, Elementor, or Beaver Builder.

    Good luck!

    If you use X theme, then Elementor or Beaver builders are entirely redundant. X comes with it's own builder, Cornerstone.

    For anyone using either Elementor or Beaver builders, I would strongly recommend the Astra theme.
