To build a custom widget:
Open or create a page with Elementor, and your new widget will appear under the category you assigned it to. Drag the new widget into the drop area to begin customizing it further. That's it.
The header and footer builders work the same way.
So what’s really up with the free version?
You can only build global headers and footers, including mobile-friendly off-canvas menus. But they’ll be visible on every page, and you can’t change that without Pro.
You can customize the width and positioning of megamenus. But not choose a parent icon, put badges in your menu, or include submenus in the mobile menu.
If you own or plan to own a WooCommerce store, you’ll need Pro to get any of the WooCommerce features. If you run a no-frills site and don’t care about parallax effects, sticky elements, or social media feed integration, you’d probably be pretty happy with the free version.
Both the free and pro versions include the widget builder that lets you create your own widget without coding. (It's straightforward to use, and we'll give you the basics about how it works later on.)
Personal: $39 (single site)
Professional $87 (5 sites)
Agency $179 (unlimited sites)
Wpmet also offers a theme author program with four tiers of lifetime updates and support for developers who build themes. It ranges from $119-$589.
ElementsKit is a popular choice for users who want a more comprehensive range of widgets than Elementor offers. The pro version does boast over 70 of them and even gives you the power to build your own fully customizable widgets.
It’s missing a few widgets offered by competitors with comparably-priced products, but it makes up for that by having more predesigned blocks and the widget builder.
