Elegant Themes vs Elementor Pro  💥
ELEGANT THEMES (Elegant Themes vs Elementor)
Elegant Themes is the builder of the Divi Theme...
Elegant Themes is a company that specializes in building Wordpress Themes. It sells its themes through a very attractively priced membership. They now have more than 800,000 members, including professionals and do-it-yourselfers. I will report here on their most important themes, and their more than popular page builder.
Elegant Themes review: Rating
When we talk about ratings, I want to make it clear that many themes let themselves be rated via the marketplaces on which these themes are sold. This results in much higher average figures than when themes are rated on independent review websites such as Sitejabber.com. Follow the link to see that Elegant Themes scores 4.93 out of 5 on such a review website, an insanely high score.
Or maybe you put more confidence in Trustpilot.
Elegant Themes review: Divi Theme
The Divi Theme has been the most popular premium Wordpress theme for about 10 years, statistics on Builtwith. com confirm this. The theme comes out several times a year with all kinds of firsts such as recently their Advanced Gradient Builder and their Divi Cloud. These new gadgets are then slowly copied by all other premium themes, but they always lag behind the facts. Because by the time they think they've caught up with Divi, it already has 3 new features to steal the show.
Elegant Themes review: Extra Theme
The Extra Theme runs on the same engine as the Divi Theme but has "Extra" features that make it an almost perfect blogger theme. For example, just like Divi, it has the DiviBuilder in it as a page builder. The Extra Theme includes a set of Divi Builder modules specifically designed for bloggers and online publishing. These modules can be used for various homepage and category layouts. You can now create exactly the page that meets the needs of your project.
Elegant Themes review: The DiviBuilder
The DiviBuilder is the best frontend page builder with a real inline text editor. For me this means the possibility to immediately start writing in a piece of text without having to open extra screens or write in a box. The DiviBuilder is as far as I know the only page builder where things really work that way. Even a top page builder like Elementor is lagging behind Divi.
Elegant Themes review: Pricing
The standard pricing that Elegant Themes maintains is $89 per year or $249 one-time for the rest of your life. Discounts are often available, here and here you can see if there are currently any discounts running.
Elegant Themes review: Conclusion
I'll close this Elegant Themes review with my opinion on everything insofar as I haven't already given it here and there. Elegant Themes clearly offers one of the most complete and best components in its pack. It is also striking that the same builder has the best theme and the best page builder in their hands. This is a membership that both laymen and professional designers should definitely have in their arsenal. You will not get value for money anywhere else, although there are certainly a number of good theme packages.
ELEMENTOR (Elegant Themes vs Elementor)
Elementor is now more than just one of the best page builders...
The Elementor page builder can be used in any theme. Elementor has its own theme which you can download for free, The Hello theme. Elementor itself houses more than 300 ready-made demos from which you can start your work, that's as good as the best themes. You don't need another theme with Elementor. The own Hello theme is more than enough.
In this Elementor review we discuss the very latest improvements that make the theme/pagebuilder score in the top. Elementor only came on the market in 2016 and has already been installed on more than 8 million sites, which is of course noticeable. This is not just a page builder but a tuned drag & drop tool to build websites very quickly and easily.
ELEMENTOR PAGEBUILDER REVIEW
Watch the clip below, it will probably give you a taste of how you can get started with the editor/page builder yourself. Here you can find all info about Elementor's Editor.
This brand new tool can be used as a dock on the right of the screen or can float anywhere in your worksheet. Simply right-click an element or block on your worksheet and select "Navigator" to open it. The Navigator significantly increases the enjoyment of work and the speed at which one can work. Watch here a video and more info about the Navigator.
ELEMENTOR SAVE WORK
Who wants to do the same task over and over again? Elementor allows you to save work blocks and reuse them on other pages, posts, and even other websites. That way you save a lot of time if we compare it with how people used to work. The animation below gives a reasonable idea of what to expect.
READY-TO-USE DEMO DESIGNS
We discuss the top features of the Elementor page builder. The beautiful demo designs are certainly part of this. Earlier I told you that Elementor is basically just a theme because of the wide choice of demo material that you can use as the start for your website.
Similar to Divi there are plenty of 200+ layouts available for all possible niches. Think of corporate, web shops, the hotel industry, gyms, cafe, fashion, hosting, photography, architecture, lifestyle, travel and fashion. There are also many third parties that build beautiful layouts for Elementor. You can also use such a layout as a start for your work, but you will of course have extra costs. View here the complete library of layouts.
ELEMENTOR WOOCOMMERCE BUILDER
Elementor, like most top themes, is perfect for building webshops. Product pages and category pages of Woocommerce can be beautifully styled. In the past, quite a bit of HTML knowledge was needed for customizing shop pages, that has become a thing of the past. We assume you know Woocommerce, it is by far the most used shop plugin for Wordpress. Watch here a video and more info about the Woocommerce Builder.
ELEMENTOR REVISIONS EDITOR
Elementor, like other elite page builders, was less pleased with the revision editor included in Wordpress and decided to release its own improved version. I completely agree that the default Wordpress editor for revisions is worthless, that was always an eyesore when you had to put something back. Also Divi and Thrive have this tool. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor Revisions Editor.
ELEMENTOR REVIEW: MOBILE EDITING
Everything can be set separately with Elementor for mobile, tablet and desktop as you can see above. Of course Elementor is "out-of-the-box" responsive, but it is always nice to be able to make targeted adjustments for a certain device if necessary. However, all top themes and page builders also have this. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Mobile Editing.
We give a perfect score in our Elementor review here to the color editor for texts, which is practically as beautiful as in a PC software like Photoshop. According to Elementor themselves, they are currently the only one that has "pixel perfect design". You can use all possible colors out there and also create gradients with them. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Color Picker.
ELEMENTOR HEADER & FOOTER
Total control over all headers and footers within your website. All elite page builders can do this, but it is an important tool to have in a theme. Watch here a video and more info about Elementor's Header-Footer Builder.

ELEMENTOR PRO ELEMENTS
ELEMENTOR THEME ELEMENTS
The building blocks for the layout of your pages are the elements and Elementor offers very a lot of. Let's say practically everything has been thought of. Elementor even has pop-ups included as standard and very nice ones too, so forget about your pop-up plug-in from now on. You no longer need it. View here the complete info on all 90+ Elementor Widgets.
Beautiful pop-ups, easy to set up too, a wonderful tool. The top page builders copy everything from each other. The popups are perfect for call-to-action and conversion purposes. View here all info about Elementor's popups.
ELEMENTOR REVIEW: PRICING
The prices for Elementor can be found here in the image above. In terms of quality, Elementor is worth triple its money, especially if we compare it with other premium themes that offer much less and are also even more expensive. View the pricing page here. Sometimes there are discounts.
If you still have a few questions about Elementor, you might find them quickly answered in the more-than-organized Elementor Academy.
ELEGANT THEMES VS ELEMENTOR CONCLUSION
Elegant Themes and Elementor are quite evenly matched. Both have excellent page builders, with I slightly prefer the DiviBuilder from Elegant Themes. Both frameworks cost practically the same, but to really keep up with the Divi Theme + DiviBuilder Elementor must also be combined with an elite theme. The most suitable candidate for this is the Astra Pro theme which works perfectly with Elementor. Without adding a top theme to Elementor, Elegant Themes is clearly the winner!
