Elementor is a so-called Page Builder. You create complete pages with it.
Yeah but, that’s what we have Gutenberg for, right? That comes standard in WordPress these days!
Well, Gutenberg came about in the 2020s, and elementor in 2016. You notice that tremendously, Elementor currently works even more pleasantly than the (meanwhile built into WordPress) Gutenberg editor.
You can simply find Elementor in the list of plugins from WordPress.org
Installing it is a piece of cake.
In your admin > Plugins > New plugins – Enter elementor in the search box. Click Install Now and then Activate.
Once activated, you can go to a page or post and start using the Elementor content builder.
– Click “Edit with Elementor” if the Elementor layout does not appear immediately.
Drag and go!
If Elementor’s description is to be believed, it is a matter of dragging and dropping elements, modifying them and saving them.
Does elementor really work that easily? Um, YES!
This just works incredibly well and easily.
I have been using Elementor for no more than 10 minutes, and I get all the elements exactly the way I want them. Width, height, etc. Text in, image next to it. It works tremendously intuitively.
I’m a website nerd, keep in mind that you need to take some time to do it yourself if you don’t already have basic experience with page builders 🙂
If you want to put elements next to each other you first use a column.
It’s called an “inner Section” in Elementor.
Conclusion – The elementor page builder, is it still something?
Yes, this works well. I must admit that I am positively surprised.
[press-graphic]I use this pagebuilder when a website requires a lot of customization, I’m used to this builder and can’t live without it. It’s just which one you started using first if you ask me[close-press-graphic].
