What is a WPBakery Page Builder Addons Plugin?
WPBakery Page Builder add-ons are plugins which will give you some extended functionality to the basic elements that the plugin originally comes with.
Note that there are lots of add-ons for WPBakery Page Builder, for almost anything. However, in this post, I’ll go through the “all arounders”, the ones that are most featured rich and well made.
First, let’s see what WPBakery Page Builder is offering right of the bat.
Well… it doesn’t come with that much. You can add some basic elements, with fewer styling options (buttons, accordions, tabs, images, grids, some maps, and charts). Nothing fancy and nothing breathtaking. Definitely not enough to build a modern looking website.
That’s where add-ons come to play. They add elements to WPBakery Page Builder making the process of building a page easy and hassle free, without users having any coding skills.
In this list, you will find the best and most elements-rich WPBakery Page Builder addons, offered right now.
Massive Addons gives you 70+ shortcodes and addons with infinite customization possibilities.
The Add-On has a user-friendly, step-by-step setup wizard where you choose which components to install.
Massive Addons works with presets (ready made styles of any shortcode), which you can add with a simple click and edit afterward if needed. This is very useful for beginners or anyone not familiar with the modern design trends. The creators of the plugin – MPC have also put online some useful video tutorials to help you get started.
Speaking of simplicity the plugins have an “easy mode” which strips a lot of the settings and leaves only the most important. If you want to get detailed in your styling preferences, the “easy mode” can be turned off by simply unchecking the box in the upper corner of the window.
You can also directly install the pages you will see in the demo, with one click, from the plugins dashboard menu. The plugin supports WooCommerce and it comes with some sleek shortcodes for your e-store.
I was amazed from the very first time I saw the plugin elements in the demo. The quality of the design, combined with the easy to use back-end interface makes Massive Addons the best choice when it comes to Visual Composer add-ons.

The add-on has covered all the necessary elements to build a fully functional and good looking page. This is the first plugin to offer such great features for VC users, as it was published on the market in 2014.
One major con I noticed about this add-on is that it’s not being updated with any new styles in the past year and a half, but it’s still a great weapon when it comes to building a page.
Ultimate VC Addons is arguably the Best option for creating interactive custom backgrounds. It gives you a full range of options: YouTube or Hosted video, Gradient, All kinds of Parallax efOverlayserlleys, Separators and more.
I find this plugin to be lighter and faster in comparison with Massive Addons, but on the other side, achieving a satisfying outcome takes some more practice and time.
