Are you a site builder who uses WordPress or Duda? Now you’re asking the real questions. Why? Since both Duda and WordPress have much to provide in terms of site-building. And both do, in fact, have the right arsenal at their disposal to make your website meticulously organized – and functional as ever. 

While WordPress has been around far longer and has more users than Duda, WordPress isn’t known for its ease of use like Duda. This is why Duda’s popularity has gone to such great heights as of now, and most people are opting for it.

Below, let’s examine how the full battle compares, namely, what Duda is best at, and what WordPress is exemplary for. 

Duda Editor vs WordPress Editor 

Let’s get this straight, Duda’s Drag & Drop style editor is really simple to use – and its functionality is superb as well! Duda’s editor comes with an array of tools that are at your disposal, even as a beginner. 

The numerous built-in segments can be found with a click on the “New section” tab. From FAQs, pricing plans, and an “About Us” section to headers, footers, and text blocks, Duda has everything at hand for editing and web-building. If you’re not keen on any of the templates, that’s fine, since you can personalize any segment, widget, and element however you want!

On the other hand, the WordPress editor feels kind of restricted. No Drag & Drop, no previews – these are the missing items that would have made web-building through WordPress a sinch. There’s the option of utilizing the visual editor, yes; however, to do it, you’ll need to download a plugin called “Elementor”. 

All in all, when it comes to the easiness of use, functionality, and usefulness of both WordPress and Duda’s editors – Duda wins by a landslide. 

Duda Templates vs WordPress Templates

Technically speaking, WordPress doesn’t have any templates, since it uses “themes”. Technicalities aside, WordPress has 130 themes you can immediately use, and, if you want to buy one, you are looking at around 180 more themes to select from. ‘

At the same time, Duda has around 90-ish templates to use, and a blank one to personalize to your liking – all compatible with mobile devices. In all truth, when using WordPress, you’ll find there’s a special theme customizer, which for Duda means, upping their game and catching up. 

It’s safe to say, WordPress made it through this round with flying colors. Not that Duda doesn’t have immediate and absolutely dazzling templates, it does, and its blank template makes personalization a breeze. Still, for the whole nine-yard experience, WordPress wins this round. 

Duda’s Attributes vs WordPress Attributes

Below, find a comparison between the overall attributes and functions of Duda vs WordPress. 

Functions WordPress Duda
Free Templates/Themes 180 130
Plugins/Add-ons WordPress has over 50,000 plugins if you opt for their Business Plan or a pricier one Duda doesn’t allow any extra plugins or add-ons

Blogging devices  WordPress has every nook and cranny about blogging since that’s its main feature Your content and design are always distinct when building a blog post.

 

In the eCommerce row, you can easily see that the products you can sell through Duda are capped at only 10 total. Meaning, you have to pay an extra fee to get to a higher number. That’s not the case with WordPress; however, you still have to buy their Business Plan or any other of their more elaborate ones. 

Speaking of worth, Duda takes the cake even though its features are a bit more expensive than the ones seen in WordPress. Keep in mind that Duda’s Standard plan is pricier than the lowest-priced plans in WordPress.

Final Verdict 

Duda’s extra features consist of mobile application editing, bracing URLs via GEO, tooltips for pictures, and an automated backup system. Through WordPress, however, there are a bunch of pictures available from Pexels, alongside a password protection system, simplified comment sections, and personalized URL design.

If you’re a blog post kind of person – and you’re into eCommerce as well – WordPress is your best bet for success. But, should you want a fully functional website for your business – Duda is your miracle worker.
