Elementor review - Best Wordpress pagebuilder
Is Elementor no theme, or is it? The Elementor page builder can be used in any theme, and will always be compatible. It itself houses more than 300 ready-made demos from which you can start your work, which is as good as a theme. With Elementor you don't need another theme, they would just call it a theme that is clearer.
This applies to the PRO version because the free version does not have all of that. In this Elementor review we discuss the very latest improvements that make the theme / page builder score in the top. Elementor only came on the market in 2016 and is already installed on more than 4 million sites, which of course stands out. 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 video below, this gives you a good idea how you can get started with the editor / page builder yourself.
Elementor Navigator review
This brand-new tool can be used as a dock on the right-hand side of the screen or floating anywhere in your worksheet. Simply click something on your worksheet with your right mouse button and choose "Navigator" to open it. Or watch the video below, which is easier to understand. The Navigator is an extension of the page builder that you work with.
Elementor saves your work
Who always wants to perform the same task again? With Elementor you can save work blocks and reuse them on other pages, posts and even other websites. That way you save a sea of time if we compare that with how people used to work. The animation below gives a reasonable picture of what you can expect.
In this Elementor review 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.
Just like with DIVI there are layouts available for all possible niches. Think of corporate, web shops, the hotel industry, gyms, café, fashion, hosting, photography, architecture, lifestyle, travel and fashion. There are many third parties that build beautiful themes for Elementor. You can also use such a theme as a start for your work, but you will of course have extra costs.
Elementor & Woocommerce
Elementor is just like the other top themes perfect for building web shops. Product pages and category pages from Woocommerce can be styled beautifully. It always needed quite a bit of HTML knowledge to adjust shop pages, that has become a thing of the past. We assume that you are familiar with Woocommerce, it is by far the most used shop plug-in for Wordpress.
Elementor revision editor
Elementor, like other elite page builders, was less enthusiastic about the revision editor in Wordpress and decided to release its own improved version. I fully agree with them that the standard Wordpress editor for revisions is worthless, that was always a thorn in the eye if you had to put something back. Also Divi and Thrive Architect got this great tool.
Elementor Pagebuilder review: Responsiveness
Everything can be set separately with Elementor for mobile, tablet and desktop as you can see above. Elementor is of course "out-of-the-box" responsive but it is always nice to be able to make targeted adjustments for a certain device if needed. All top themes and page builders, however, also have this.
Elementor color range
We give a perfect score in our Elementor review here to the color editor for texts, which is practically just as beautiful as in a PC software like Photoshop. According to Elementor itself, they are currently the only one with "pixel perfect design". You can use all possible colors that are available and also create gradients with it.
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.
Elementor standard elements
Elementor PRO version elements
Elementor Theme elements
The building blocks for the layout of your pages are the elements and Elementor offers a lot of them. Let's say practically everything has been thought of. Elementor even has pop-ups as standard and also very nice ones, so from now on forget your pop-up plug-in. You no longer need it.
Beautiful pop-ups, easy to set up too, a wonderful tool. Currently Divi does not have this but I expect that it will not last long. The top page builders copy everything from each other. The pop-ups are perfect for call-to-action and conversion purposes.
Elementor review: Pricing
The prices for Elementor can be found here in the image above. In terms of quality, Elementor is worth three times its money, especially if we compare that with other premium themes that offer much less and are even more expensive.
