ELEMENTOR REVIEW (Elementor vs Ultra)
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.

ULTRA THEME (Elementor vs Ultra)
In this Ultra Theme from the builder Themify we take a look at the main features and upgrades of this theme. It has been making rapid strides lately and this suggests that we are dealing with a very good theme here. Themify started a promotion in 2016 that is still valid today. When submitting the invoice, you can switch from another theme to Ultra or another Themify theme for 50% of the price. You can find the complete information for this topic here.
ULTRA THEME REVIEW: 60+ DEMO'S
The Ultra themes has a collection of 60+ niche demo layouts. The Themify Builder offers an high amount of demo layouts, no less than 40+ Demos and is integrated in every Themify theme, so also in Ultra! Of course 40 demos are more than enough, but if you want 140+ more the Builder Pro is a good option. By the way, the Builder Pro is automatically included in the Master and Lifetime version for an additional cost of $ 30, so don't buy it separately. You then immediately have access to all their 48+ themes instead of just Ultra. A great offer!
ULTRA THEME REVIEW: WEBSHOPS
The Ultra theme offers a Woocommerce add-on and various shopping layouts but if you are going to build a shop then Themify's Shoppe Theme might be a better choice. It offers practically the same features but is more oriented towards E-commerce sites than Ultra. For the $30 surcharge, I would in any case opt for the Master package with 48+ which of course includes Ultra and Shoppe.
Shopping features in Ultra
Ultra has even more shopping features, but you can find more information about this on their own site. Follow the link in the button at the end of this article.
ULTRA THEME REVIEW: SPEED
The Ultra theme has very fast loading times and good SEO. In the speedtest result above, we used a good cache plugin and a fast server. The faster websites load, the better visitors stay engaged. This lowers your bounce rates and ensures that you are found better in Google (Google Rankbrain).
The Ultra theme works with the page builder already briefly discussed above called Builder-Pro. Builder-Pro is free in every theme of Themify but the Builder-Pro can be ordered separately as a separate plugin to use it in competitor themes.
ULTRA'S BUILDER ADD-ONS
The Themify Builder comes standard with 12 additional add-ons that will make styling your pages easier. If you choose the Master option instead of a separate theme, you will lose $89 instead of $59, but you will not only have 25 Builder Addons but also immediately access to all 48+ themes from Themify, and the Builder Pro and more. many more extras. This is a perfect deal because all their themes are very good.
ULTRA THEME REVIEW: MEGAMENU
Mega menus give websites a good look and are fashionable. Ultra offers a variable mega menu where you can choose the number of columns and optionally use texts or images. This can be seen in the video below.
ULTRA'S IMAGE FILTERS
Ultra theme is equipped with a number of Image Filters so that it is not necessary to apply these kinds of things directly to images in a program like Photoshop. This saves a lot of time and if you want to apply a different filter later it is very easy as the original photo is not affected.
ULTRA'S SECTION SCROLLING
Above and below you can see Ultra's vertical and horizontal Section Scrolling at work. I believe I have never seen this feature in themes before. No idea what it's for, scrolling down seems just as good to me, but it sure looks nice.
ULTRA'S HEADER OPTIONS
Ultra offers a large number of standard header layouts. You can choose 1, 2, or 3 menus and their location. Also logo in the middle, left or right can be chosen. In addition, 6 header background options for the header: image, video, transparent, slider, animated color, and fixed color.
Ultra theme review: Conclusion
The Themify themes are very good to say the least. I would never pay $59 for a single theme but definitely go for the membership for $89 with all themes and extras as shown in the image below.
Themify Master is a complete collection of everything one will ever need to build beautiful websites super fast. Every web design agency should have this package in their arsenal. The same goes for Divi and Astra... Listen Ultra has a lot more than I have told you here. I have explained the most important features, if you want to know more, read more on the Themify site.
ELEMENTOR VS ULTRA CONCLUSION
The Ultra theme has very nice and many layouts that you can install with 1 click, but Elementor has those too. The Ultra theme comes for half the price if you can submit a receipt for the theme that is now installed on your site or for a small additional cost with 48+ other premium niche themes. This package contains many more extras and despite the fact that I estimate Elementor a bit higher than Ultra, the package that Ultra offers is almost more interesting. A difficult choice. Web design agencies should have both systems in their arsenal, of course.
