On September 5th I presented an introductory demo of the WordPress page builder Elementor and its premium Elementor Pro and wanted to make sure that people could use this post as both a reference to some of the key points and links to the tools I demonstrated… Oh yes, and exclusive coupon codes for many of the tools that were part of the demonstration and are included below. To reveal the codes, simply use the password “COS” as the password (without the quotes).

 

The Base Model (the free stuff)

One of the great things about Elementor is the fact that the core of the page builder tool is absolutely free and sufficient for many!

The free trim package I included:

Elementor

Install Elementor as a plugin directly from within WordPress to start. Even if you have the Pro version, you will need the base free plugin. It does enough for many people for whom productivity and consistency is not as important as it is for professionals. No matter what, you should start here to learn how to use the tool, create pages and configure sections, columns and widgets!

I did speak briefly about how to manage colors with Elementor and I have gone into detail on that subject here.

Astra is a great lightweight theme that integrates fantastically well and even supercharges aspects of a site built with Elementor free or Pro. Take a look at their knowledge article that reviews the different sections of the Astra Customizer and the sidebar will show you what is free vs their Pro version.

The Premium Model

These are the plugins that I found paying for more than made up for their costs in my productivity and solved otherwise unsolvable problems with straight Elementor.

Elementor Pro is the foundation of the premium model with the ability to create conditional templates for your main themed pages and content in WordPress: Blog Archive, Single for post or page, 404, Nav Menus, Facebook embeds, and many added widgets.

Fine tuning with custom CSS on the elementor Advanced tab is also specific to Elementor Pro.

Elementor Pro also has the Global Widget that allows you to save and change a content area across all uses on the site, or copy and unlink to use as a core template with formatting implemented. 

Microthemer is a CSS tweaker that is a toolbar over the top of your Elementor page edits. If you have an Elementor Widget Great deal from the amazing Sebastian of Themeover!

½ off but only for a few days! Use the password found at the beginning of this post.

You can get a nice coupon for the next few days. You can use the same code for Astra Pro and is even better when priced into a bundle.

I love this Addon! A great new coupon code that will go fast is found using the same passcode as above. This code will run out as soon as they get 60 redemptions so move fast!
