Page builder for WordPress

Elementor overview

What is Elementor?

Elementor is a cloud-based page builder for WordPress websites that allows users to control their full web design workflow within a single platform. Users can employ prebuilt industry-specific themes, create their own pages through a drag-and-drop design editor, and redesign their site in real time.

Elementor's drag-and-drop editor allows users to customize every element of their website from a single screen, including the content, header, and footer. All elements can be saved and reused across multiple pages, and users can also import and export designs between sites. Site element design can also be controlled globally to present consistent typography, colors, and other style settings across all pages. The responsive editor allows users to switch to a mobile view and adjust any element so it displays correctly on every type of device.

Elementor includes a range of widgets for navigation menus, search, login forms, posts, WordPress comments, and more. Marketing widgets are also provided, allowing users to create and embed forms, countdown timers, rating starts and testimonial carousels. Landing pages and popups can be built with Elementor's marketing tools, and the WooCommerce builder lets users design eCommerce product pages.

Elementor versus Wordpress Gutenberg

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

I started with Elementor as a result of needing to put together a sales funnel. I looked at many, many templates and Elementor was the fastest and easiest. I use it for two of my sites and it's really nice once you get the feel for it.

Pros
Really easy to install. I was able to start making pages in just a few minutes, and only after a day, I was able to create pages for one of my sales sites. Modular, easy to drop in embed codes.

Cons
Many of the best features are only available in the pro version. It's not the default editor. I am still digging through their documentation to figure out if this is even possible. Otherwise, you have to make multiple clicks to edit a page with it, versus the Wordpress default.

Great Freemium Site Builder

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

I've used Elementor on a number of sites and, together with add-ons, have been able to create some nice looking pages. It's my go-to plugin if I'm building a site from scratch. I have not bought the premium version but if I used the plugin on a daily basis might be tempted. There are some very active user communities on Facebook, and most answers to problems can be found there. I haven't found the plugin to be especially buggy, but occasionally I've had to log out of Wordpress and login again to clear an error. That's fairly rare to be fair.

Pros
The free version of Elementor is pretty powerful - for most tasks you;re going to find what you need. Drag and drop, page sizing and editing are very easy, and so much more powerful than Wordpress' native Gutenberg editor

Cons
Well not everything is free, and when you want to start tuning up your site, some of the controls are far from intuitive. If you use this every day you will quickly get your head around some of the more complex elements, BUT, if you're a less regualr user, some of the less intuitive stuff may become annoying.

If you want your web imaginations to come true then Elementor is the way to go.

In my development career, elementor has helped me a lot in creating custom clients needs, Just like any other page builder, it has saved me & other developers, hours of coding, and debugging. With elementor our limits of imaginations have got to another level because now we can create whatever comes in our mind.

Pros
Elementor is easy to use and fully customizable tool for designing Industry-Standard websites and landing pages without knowing how to code. I like the wide range of libraries that are available for elementor. And the thing I love is its integrations with multiple themes and plugins, that allow a designer to develop whatever you want.

Cons
I've noticed that sometimes it makes the page slow by loading scripts that are not needed. And I don't like its loading screen when I am on a slow network connection. Some of the useful features are available with the pro version only.

Elementor speed sucks

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-09-11
Review Source: Capterra

We spent a lot of time and built dozens of websites on Elementor however we were not able to get the speed up to par. Many sites took over 10 seconds to load after we have done all the possible speed optimizations. Without speed optimizations they were taking 16 to 20 seconds to load out of the box.

Pros
Elementor is amazing in many ways however because it is one of the heaviest front-end page builders out there it simply does not do what it is supposed to. Speed is one of the most important factors of a website and it is simply impossible to get a website to load fast on Elementor unless you have a very basic site. This is why we would never recommend a mentor unless they fix the speed issue. We are at Webb development company and have spent a ton of time trying to do everything possible to speed optimize Elementor websites without any avail.

Cons
We disliked the fact that Elementor is very heavy and it's impossible to get medium to large size websites to load fast.

A great tool for Wordpress bloggers

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2021-01-07
Review Source: Capterra

Elementor has helped me to achieve my goals, I wouldn't have finished my blog without it. If you are looking for an easy tool to start with your blog this is the right one.

Pros
I have used Elementor since I started my blog, this tool has made my life easier because it integrates really well with all WordPress blogs. If you are looking for an easy tool to build your blog or start it, Elementor will allow you to set everything you need, from texts, images to integrations to make contact forms.

Cons
This plugin can be unpredictable sometimes like many plugins out there, but if there's any problem you may have to work it out by yourself or wait a long time before someone responds to you. However, there are plenty of youtube videos out there that can easily help you out with your problem.
