Great training! I've met with "Elementor" when working on a website outside WA, and there must've been something wrong with my intuition or whatever because for the life of me I couldn't "intuitively" figure it out! It was very frustrating. I'm going to watch your training first, Anis, and then try again.

Katya.

Hi, Anis really nice video.
I have played a little around with Elementor in the last 2 weeks.
It's awesome when it works, but I cant access the library and when I try to edit existing post made prior to Elementor, they disappear. (good thing that I was able to restore the posts with revisions.)

Do you have any tips to work out those 2 problems?

Best regards
Jasser

Go to Systems Info in WP Dashboard, check Elementor Library is connected (or not).
Go to Tools in WP Dashboard, then synchronize Library
If that doesn't work, maybe hosting needs to set this configuration.

Thanks, already tried that, probably a hosting related issue.

Hi Anis,
Thanks for the great training. I had no idea this existed, you came to me at the exact right time when I was looking for something to give my website all the things you have shown on here. Funny how life works hey!
Keep up the good work

Is this not the coolest page builder ever! Let me just say, if you are just starting out building your own website, it is loads easier than it used to be. Learn the basics first of word press, and then, when you are ready, give Elementor a try. As far as page builders, I used Visual Composer, headway, and others for along time, but Elementor is much easier, clear and small learning curve, instant view, and less steps. IF you have used the others, try this!

I couldn't get it to work. Not sure what I did but it didn't come out like Anis showed. Darn. Great training, must be me :)

Great video Anis, I built my site with Elementor Free and I decided to add a blog to go with it, however I'm having a problem with it.
How do I add a blog to an existing site? Do you have a video on that and adding a sidebar? I'm using Generate Press full width.
Any help is appreciated.

Goodmorning Anis!! over there in Italy-),

Thanks to Dave (https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/dmk71152) I have been taking notice and benefits of this training.

I - among others I guess- are a little bit behind the latest trends. This translates for me personally in lacking basic knowledge in connection with the content of the courses on WA.
Still, I am determined to hold on and digging in my heels, sound advice is welcome... GREAT!!
In this regard your tutorial is wonderful... you gave a crisp and clear explanation to start with!! and the de plugin is so valuable!
And of course, I did the tour de la maison on your website! It looks very professional and will certainly install trust! And you have tons of articles on it!! They are informative and interesting - you have been busy indeed!!

I do hope, WA and your website as well will bring you all the rewards in every respect you are aiming at! And once more - thank you so much for sharing this valuable asset on WA and with me!!

Henriette.

P.S.
You are from Naples!! The Borgias with Jeremy Irons is my favourite!! in those times 'living dangerously on the edge' was the norm - I love diving into those adventures.. safely tucked on my couch with tea and my cats at hand -).

Hey Anis,

is Elementor working for you together with SiteSpeed?
I tested in on one of my sites and it seemed that Elementor clashed with SiteSpeed.
After I deactivated it, SiteSpeed worked.

It could be a coincidence, though. SiteSpeed is still under development.
Would be interesting to know your experiences with that.

Cheers
Moritz

No problem, mate.
I have stopped using it for now, too.
Only was using it for buttons anyways.

Nifty plugin,thanks for pointing it out, I always wanted thrive but didn't want to pay for it, I like to keep my budget to WA only,
I tried out the plugin at the same time as making a review on,

http://myplugintestsite.siterubix.com/free-front-end-page-builder-for-wordpress-elementor

I found it to be a very useful plugin, I don't usually keep plugins on this site after I test them, but after looking at my site health the plugins are still showing up as 100% so it must be a very light plugin.

Only thing I found that was not so sound, was it takes longer than the usual WordPress editor to load page and update, but my site still runs like lightening anyhow.

Looks like you are doing a great job here at WA,
Keep up the good work, you will go a long way,
I shall follow you, I wish you the best of luck with business :)

I definitely will be checking this out...Thanks M8! Dave : )

UPDATE: This looks very promising...I think it will be useful when designing landing pages and thank you pages for sales funnels (easier and faster loading, I can use one of my test domains for this)...Really good stuff! Two thumbs up! : )

Hi Anis,
It is really a great tool after watching your video tutorial.There are lots of useful features in it.Need time to figure out how to use them.You are right that spending too much time deciding the design of the post may result in less time posting content.

Where do you get the pictures for posting online?

How do you get it?

Thanks.

Warm regards,
David Koh

Hi, David, I used to use Pixabay and other free sites to get pictures to use on my blog posts.

Now I use LogoMakr to make my own designs and pictures, it's another great tool :)

Hi Anis,
Thanks a lot for your info and recommendations.
I am quite concern regarding the issue of violation of copyright.I thought of snapping some pictures of my own and use it.

Designing logos and pictures are something new and interesting to me.Sound good.

Warm regards,
David Koh

I have been using Elementor since it came out awhile back and I am very happy with it. You can check out my landing page by going to the first website on my profile page.

Trust me, it's a great alternative to Thrive Content Builder if you do not have the budget for that.
