Elementor Crash Course

A quick tour of Elementor – The Basics

As you know already, Elementor is loaded outside of WordPress Dashboard and all its settings sit on the left-hand menu on your screen.

Lets browse through the different sections of Elementor editor:

  • Site Settings – In the top-left corner you can also access Settings. Here you can control the general Style of your page, jump back to the WordPress dashboard, switch to dark mode and so on.
  • Elements: Are showing all the widgets you can place on your page. It’s divided into sections (Basic, Pro, and others)
  • Global: Widgets that you saved for re-use in Elementor. We will focus on that a bit more later on when we create additional pages with Elementor in our project

At the bottom, there is another toolbar. Here you can find:

  • Page settings (i.e. for switching the layout for a specific page)
  • Navigator (especially useful if your page gets lengthy)
  • History: Undo specific edit actions or jump to a previously saved page
  • Responsive Mode: Switch to viewing and editing your page from Desktop, Tablet, or Mobile 

You will spend a lot of time browsing and clicking on the left-hand menu. It is both for applying general site and page settings, but later on for editing specific content elements and applying the design settings too.
