Key Features of Elementor
Front-End Page Builder
Working on your site can be a bit tasking, especially when trying to build the layout. As a front-end builder, Elementor helps you see live changes (real-time preview) of what you are doing. Whether you need to adjust your images and tweak it to the left or to the right, or you want to shift your layout from a single to multi-column design, Elementor front-end builder will give you an immediate preview of the changes.
To us, this is the ideal way to build a website. Besides, it helps us save and use my time efficiently.
Within the left side of the screen is a list of modules or things that will help your website look great like images, video, text, heading, button, spacer, and many more. It’s as simple as ‘drag and drop’ these modules on your preferred work area on the website, and with just a little editing, you are good to go.
To locate the templates, click the folder icon located at the bottom of the page. Once you click the folder, you will see a new pop up window showing you a list of page templates that you can make use of.
To use a template, hover your mouse over the preferred template and click ‘insert,’ then wait a few seconds, and you will see that the template you just clicked is loaded into your page.
These are preset sections that you can easily and quickly load into your page, just like the templates. There are different types of blocks, and they are created for every section. For instance, there are blocks for call-to-actions, testimonials, About us, FAQ’S, and much more.
To activate the blocks, click the same folder icon at the bottom of the page as before and click ‘Blocks,’ and if you need a particular type of block, click the ‘category,’ and you will have to choose one from the dropdown list of available categories.
Once you are done with your page layout, you can save it as your future template to be reused for similar projects. To reuse the template design for future work, click the arrow beside the green ‘Publish’ button and then click the “save as template.”
As more people now prefer to use their mobile phones to access the internet, there is no better time to start designing a mobile-friendly website than now. To achieve a mobile-friendly version of your website design, click the desktop icon beside the ‘Publish’ button and click ‘Mobile’ and ‘Tablet.’
