In this Elementor tutorial, we will cover what we started earlier on how to use Elementor step by step and learn about some of its best features.

In the end , you should have everything you need to create a WordPress website that impresses, in no time!

5. How to use Elementor Theme Builder

Usually, when something becomes easier to use, it should drop the useful features. Fortunately, Elementor is an incredibly easy-to-use and versatile special case, largely thanks to its theme creation tool.

Available in Elementor’s Pro version, the Theme Builder is a game changer for anyone familiar with page builders, because it allows you to create headers, footers and other dynamic content for your website.

It even allows you to bypass aspects of your WordPress theme, so you can keep working and make the changes you want!

Why do you need dynamic content? Well, sometimes you might want to host a sales page that doesn’t have a traditional header and sidebar or you might want to save a custom blog post layout that you can use every time you add a new post.

The possibilities are endless.

Build a header / footer with Elementor

Are you ready to create a custom header or footer using Elementor using the Theme Builder Here’s how it’s done!

Step 1. Click on “templates” in the WordPress dashboard

After logging into your WordPress dashboard, go to “templates” under Elementor in the side menu.

Step 2. Add a new template or import

This is where you create a new template for your head.

How to use Elementor

If you see a header that you already liked the look of, you can import it to use as a starting point. Otherwise, click on “Add New”.

This will bring up a dialog box that will allow you to choose the type of template, the title in this case, as well as the name of your template.

Notable :

Elementor free includes only section and Page Templates. The Pro version includes several additional template categories, including widget, header, footer, individual and archive.

Step 3. Edit your new template

If this step sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the same exact editor that we used to create a full page earlier. Now, it is applied to create a custom header.

You can go through the process of creating your layout using various widgets, and even specific images or other content. Once your new header is saved, it can be easily accessed from a new page.


Building WooCommerce pages using Elementor

The process of creating a custom WooCommerce product page is similar to any other page or section that you can create. Feeling a pattern here

Using WooCommerce Builder, Elementor supports the ability to create a template for one product page. Once you create a new template, you will see a template library full of blocks or full pages that you can use for the WooCommerce product page.

Keep in mind that this WooCommerce template will contain a number of dynamic product widgets, including the product title, product image, and product price.

You can set product details using WooCommerce,and use Elementor to display updated product information on the frontend.

Quite simply!

What item is missing?

Despite all this flexibility, there are still some things that Elementor cannot do. Remember that Elementor is not an attribute-it uses its own attribute constructor to override some attribute features.

To fully control your appearance, we recommend using Astra Pro and Elementor. Astra gives you built-in header and footer options, huge menus and much more!

Beginner templates for the element

Another great benefit of Astra is its collection of ready-to-import Starter templates to Elementor, including free and paid options.

For example, if you are setting up a fitness trainer website, you can use Astra’s fitness Trainer starter website as a solid foundation and customize it from there.

fitness Elementor

Importing the Astra starter model is easy to do!

You just need to install the free or paid version of Astra Theme, as well as the free Starter Templates plugin .

Once you have both set up, you can log in to your WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance> Starter Templates, and select the website you want to import.

After that, you will be able to make changes to the starting location right in Elementor!

Final additions to the element

In addition to these templates, our Add-On called Ultimate Addons for Elementor provides additional functions that are not present in Elementor.

This goes further than Elementor Pro in offering advanced widgets, such as content toggles, pop-ups, content timeline, and table of contents.

For maximum control and flexibility, it’s definitely worth checking out Ultimate Addons for Elementor !

By default, background images respond automatically. You have complete control over more customization of images to suit your device, even to the point of having different images for different screen sizes.

Did you know that you can choose to show or hide a section based on the device?

Just head to the editing section> advanced options> responsive tab.

Have you noticed a set of options under the “visibility” By default, the partition is set to be displayed across all devices. If you want to hide it, well, just toggle the button depending on your device.

While you can still see the section while editing the page, it won’t be visible in the frontend, once the page is published.
