We all enjoy simple, intuitive and visually appealing sites. But in order to create stunning websites you need to use the right tools.

With Press Elements you can combine the simplicity of Elementor with the efficiency of the built-in WordPress theme components.

Our goal is to give you uniquely and efficient experience to express yourself. Whether you are a designer seeking to create a breath taking effect, or a developer seeking to replacing the theme-functions with simpler Elementor drag-and-drop widgets, or even an implementer who needs to integrate WordPress plugins into Elementor.

The plugin adds powerful Elementor widgets built specifically for WordPress professionals. Our Elementor widgets organized in four categories:

Site Elements

General site related components integrated in WordPress.

  • Site Title - The name of the site.
  • Site Description - The tagline.
  • Site Logo - Custom site logo.
  • Site Counters - General site stats for Post Types, Taxonomies, Comments and Users.

Post Elements

Post related components based on WordPress theme architecture.

  • Post Title - The title of the post.
  • Post Excerpt - A short description.
  • Post Date - Publish date or last modified date.
  • Post Author - The post author information.
  • Post Terms - The taxonomies assigned to the post.
  • Post Featured Image - An image assigned to the post.

  • Before After Effect (Pro) - Visual differences between two images.

WordPress Elements

When you create a new post (or a page) on WordPress, you choose a title, write an excerpt, select a publish date, add an author, choose featured image, select several taxonomies and maybe you define some custom fields.

In the Elementor page builder you can't display and style those components. You need to repeat the process and manually add a title, write the excerpt and add images.

That's where Press Elements comes in handy. The plugin adds smart widgets that let you display those post components. Now you can drag a "Post Title" widget and style it your way. The widget will automatically insert the title used as the post title. Same applies for all the other post components.

Dynamic Content

Regular Elementor widgets save the data as hard-coded content in the database. To change something you need to open the page builder and manually change the element inside the builder. Updating post titles, excerpts, authors and other WordPress Element won't affect the builder.

Press Elements uses dynamic content architecture. It doesn't save the title and other element as hard-coded content. It generates them on-the-fly. Just like the WordPress theme system.

When you change post titles and other post elements from your WordPress dashboard (outside of Elementor), they will be automatically updated in the content area and in the page builder.

For example, you can bulk edit several posts from your sites dashboard to change the author, post that use "Post Author" widget will be automatically updates with the new data.

Template Design

When using page builders, you need to create all the page element for each page over and over again. Currently you can't design single page templates and apply the design on the post. When you use the template system you need to manually change titles and images for each post/page.

With Press Elements you can create custom designs with post elements and save them as template. When you apply the template on other posts, it will inherit the data from the new post. No more manual updates!

You don't need to hire developers to generate custom page templates - with Press Elements you can do it using a simple drag & drop interface! Now you can design different templates for different blog posts, pages and other Post Types. When creating new posts, load your predefined templates from your template library.

With Press Elements you can use Elementor widgets to display and design your post elements! Just like developers use theme-functions to generate themes. How cool is that?!
