Weekly WordPress News: Elementor Gets Theme Building
This week, Elementor, the page builder that we use here at WPLift, got a massive new feature. Elementer Pro now offers full theme building. You can use the same Elementor interface to build your header, footer, single post, and archive pages. It’s super cool. And what’s awesome is that this is a core Elementer Pro feature and the Elementor team didn’t raise the price at all.
To stay current, we also updated our Elementor review to account for all of the new features. And on one more Elementor note, Daan’s EasyThemePacks is about to release two brand new Elementor templates for travel and bakery sites, so check back for that soon.
Let’s get to all of this week’s news…
