Elementor is a popular WordPress website builder with over 1,000,000 active installations since its introduction. It offers a powerful front-end drag-and-drop feature that allows you to quickly design web pages.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Elementor page builder plugin for WordPress.
1. The Elementor template library
While Elementor website gives you the ability to build full designs from the scratch. Thanks to the Elementor template library, you don’t have to do everything yourself all of the time.
As of Elementor 2.0, these templates now come in two formats:
Pages- These are full-page designs that you can import and modify as needed.
Blocks — rather than complete pages, these are designs for specific “sections.” If you only want to add a pre-built contact area to an existing layout, for example, blocks can help.
2. Mobile previews and responsive design controls
With mobile devices accounting for such a large amount of online traffic these days, you need your site’s mobile version to look amazing. All of the designs you create with Elementor are responsive by default (that is, they look good on mobile).
3. Detailed layoutcontrols
Because page builders eliminate the need for bespoke coding, you may have to give up some freedom in where you place elements to accomplish that simplicity.
What’s wonderful about Elementor is that it comes with a tonne of straightforward controls that allow you to place every widget, section, and column exactly where you want them.
4. Inline text editing
Inline text editing is a quick and easy way to change the content on your website. Instead of using a popup like some other page builders, Elementor allows you to just click on the page and begin typing.
5. Clean code if you ever deactivate Elementor
If you ever need to deactivate Elementor, you can be assured that it won’t leave a tangle of shortcodes behind like WPBakery Page Builder or the Divi Builder.
