2. Creating Your First Custom WordPress Layout
When you go to create your first custom page out with Elementor, you need to create a new page on your WordPress site. When you’re on the new page, you may notice an “Edit with Elementor” button that wasn’t there before you installed Elementor.
Clicking on this Elementor button will launch the user interface for this WordPress plugin, which will allow you to edit your work on the drag and drop page builder.
This will allow you to add sections onto your page or completely start building your page from scratch.
If you’re looking to get a page set up quickly, you can add a template. The template selection from Elementor has a large selection of templates that were professionally designed.
After accessing the template selection and deciding on the template that you want for your word press page, you can start editing the template. Select the template click on the insert button, and that’ll add the template to your WordPress page.
You can edit any part of the template to match your WordPress site’s unique needs. All you have to do is point and click on any element that you want to adjust. Elementor will have the settings for you to adjust to the left-hand column.
3. Elementor Layouts
The Elementor program includes widgets, columns, and sections. You can think of the sections on Elementor like a block or a row that you place on your website.
Each section on the page can have several columns, and each column can have its own unique content, color, and style. There isn’t a limit on what you can add to your sections and columns by using Elementor widgets.
You can add text, images, image galleries, videos, maps, icons, headings, carousels, and sliders into your columns or sections.
One of the most unique features of Elementor is that you can use the default WordPress widgets or any other WordPress widgets that other plugins (besides Elementor) have created. You can use these on your sections and columns with Elementor.
