Nelio Unlocker Review: Convert Any Content to Gutenberg or Elementor - WP Mayor

Ever built your website using a certain page builder or website builder, only to later regret your choice and wish you could ditch the dedicated tool and just go back to the regular WordPress block editor (AKA Gutenberg)? Or, maybe you started with one page builder, but now wish you would’ve used Elementor?

I think most of us have experienced this at some point or another, but there’s always been one big problem with that – lock-in.

Let’s say you build your content using your favorite WordPress page builder plugin. Well, if you ever want to disable that plugin, you’re going to lose all of your design. At best, you’ll end up with a bunch of unstyled text and at worst you’ll see a soup of random shortcodes.

Nelio Unlocker is a new plugin built to solve that pain point. It lets you input any design and convert it into the WordPress block editor (or Elementor, in an update that will be launched soon), whether the design comes from a WordPress builder or a non-WordPress CMS/website builder.

In a nutshell, it eliminates lock-in and lets you convert any site into the native WordPress block editor (and other editors in the future).

It’s a bold goal – but does it work? After testing several designs, I can say that I was surprised by how accurate it is, especially when converting content from a WordPress page builder to the block editor.

Keep reading our hands-on Nelio Unlocker review to learn how this tool works and see several examples of before/after conversions.

Nelio Unlocker Review: How Does It Work?

The basic premise of Nelio Unlocker is simple:

You choose an input page. It could be a page on your WordPress site that you built with a page builder or a page from a non-WordPress website builder such as Squarespace, Wix, Joomla, Drupal, etc.

Then, Nelio Unlocker converts that page into a design built with the native WordPress block editor. For example, you can take a page that you’ve built with Elementor and convert it into the same design in the block editor with a single click.

The developer also plans to add support for Elementor as a destination quite soon, with potential support for other page builders. For example, you’ll soon be able to convert a Divi design into an Elementor design.

Most importantly, there’s zero tech knowledge involved – all you have to do is click a button.

To handle the actual conversion, Nelio Unlocker sends the HTML of your source page to Nelio’s servers for processing. Then, it sends back the finished block editor design.

How to Use Nelio Unlocker + Examples

Now, let’s go hands-on and I’ll show you how Nelio Unlocker works and also test a few different types of conversions.

To set up my test site, I used the Astra theme and several of its page builder test demo sites (2X Elementor and 1X Beaver Builder).
