I’m never going to be against getting Elementor Pro, but if you already have a theme like OceanWP, Astra or even if you have Hello Elementor (without planning to use a blog) and want a more customized header and footer section, you don’t necessarily have to get the Pro version of Elementor
There’s a point that needs to be made about this trend and it is the fact the base of it, which is Skeuomorphism, has been around for a long time. Apple’s mobile devices used it up until the iPhone 7, when they decided to kill it for more flat UI elements, with some slight differences that make this style visually appealing.
Themes and page builders like Elementor come with the bundle of web fonts created by Google, which according to statistics from BuiltWith, are in 45% of the top 10,000 websites and globally, the amount to over 35 quadrillion views
“No product is an island. A product is more than the product. It is a cohesive, integrated set of experiences. Think through all of the stages of a product or service – from initial intentions through final reflections, from first usage to help, service, and maintenance. Make them all work together seamlessly.”
Let’s face it. The real estate we have in common screens is not that big and we need to take full advantage of it so that our content isn’t blocked when our visitors scroll through the page
The main thing to keep in mind is the goal of your website and how you’re planning to implement that goal. Hello Elementor gives you better performance and flexibility, while Astra and OceanWP, being multi-purpose themes, are sometimes easier to work with and can be used for several different types of projects.
When it comes to your Elementor designs, buttons don’t necessarily need to be flat. A little tweaks here and there on them can add that wow factor to your website and increase your conversions or clicks.
I understand that there’s nothing like the time and comfort saved using a theme like OceanWP or Astra, both of which already have header and footer layouts built into them, but the flexibility you gain by going all the way with Elementor Pro is unmatched
The ‘Elementor stuck on loading’ issue is a very common and frustrating problem that happens pretty much to all of us Elementor users. There are a lot of causes to this issue, but the good news is it has a solution.
The Elementor page builder has a lot of features that quickly turned it into one of the best plugins for designers, developers and pretty much anyone tech-savvy enough.
