WordPress is a huge part of the web nowadays and thousands of SiteGround customers use it for their projects of different scale. There are many different Page Builders out there that add on top of the default WordPress functionality and make it easier to structure the content on your site. Today, we want to introduce to you Elementor - an intuitive drag-and-drop site builder with powerful features, whose use results not only in nice layouts but in a clean and optimized website code too.
What can Elementor do?
With Elementor, you can use pre-made templates for different page types and simply replace your text and your images within the structure it has generated for you instantly. In addition to that, you get a whole variety of content blocks that you can put in different locations on your pages by simple drag-and-drop. The plugin provides not only columns and rows that you can fill with data but full control over what is shown on the desktop, mobile and tablet users. You can fine-tune the experience for each device right from your backend editor.
Another great addition is the fact that Elementor has a growing community of developers and designers that create addons for it.
Why do we like it?
Elementor is a flexible page builder that does things "the right way". It really works very fast on your browser. Usually, in drag-and-drop interfaces, especially on slower computers, things can become slow, really affecting your workflow, making what's advertised as something to help you, a constant pain to struggle with. Elementor's interface is really well written and works fast and smooth, allowing you to focus on the actual content creation instead of wondering if the element you've placed in is actually saved or not. The best part of it, however, is that the output is a good, clean HTML that works fast and smooth for you and your visitors.
The next big thing about Elementor is that it's not "bound" to a particular theme or a limited number of themes. In theory, it works with every theme. Of course, minor tweaking may be necessary but Elementor's compatibility with themes is simply great. Despite that, it provides a great variety of pre-made layouts that you can use to quickly create the page you need only by swapping the default content with your own images and text.
Last but not least, it's been heavily developed by its team and it constantly receives regular updates that handle new features, introduced by WordPress, as well as improvements of the builder itself. This makes it a piece of software that you can rely on in order to grow your business upon.
