Page builders used to be unwieldy, hard to learn, and lacking in customization options. Some still are. But, although Elementor is powerful enough to meet the needs of professional web developers and marketers, it’s still simple and intuitive enough for a beginner with no HTML or CSS skills.
Like to talk shop with other Elementor users, see what they’re building, and show off your design work? The Expert, Studio, and Agency plans give you access to the Elementor Experts Network.
The Experts Network is an online community for Elementor developers to share project portfolios, find clients, and collaborate with each other.
You don’t get to schmooze with potential clients or collaborators in the Experts Network. Maybe you have plenty of ways to network and don’t care about that. Nor will you have access to phone or email support.
But anyone can join the Elementor Forum, the unofficial support community. Just register for a free account using Twitter or your email address.
The free version has no theme or form builders, and no design-oriented popup builder. No WooCommerce builder or widgets, or motion effects.
The Elementor page builder itself and 40+ basic widgets. Everything you need to build a fully responsive website. Including the obvious:
You also get this cool widget called an inner section, a container you can drag into a section to nest other elements inside of. We think that’s a surprisingly advanced feature for a free version.
The list is long, so I’ve broken it down into widget categories.
The z-index settings are essential if you use sticky elements. By using the z-index values to prioritize elements’ stack order, you can eliminate that annoying overlap problem.
Elementor Pro comes in five tiers.
Customers with Premium support can expect an average response time of one day. VIP support gives you a live chat option, which is nice if there’s an emergency.
This much design power does not often come in such a user-friendly interface. You can tweak almost any setting of any element block to make your site look exactly the way you want it to. And the controls are all in one dock, organized by tab.
A word of caution, though.
Elementor makes it so simple and fun to build professional pages and posts that it’s easy to forget it’s a tool, not a robot designer.
You’ll still have to plan, create, and format your content first. You’ll still need design skills. You’ll still need to know (or learn) what style and advanced settings actually do to use them well.
Because even if you’re using the most powerful and intuitive page builder in the world, it’s still possible to build an ugly page with user experience problems.
So don’t let its power and simplicity tempt you to take shortcuts. You’ll get the best results from Elementor by digging in and learning it inside and out.
