In the last couple of years, Elementor went from an unknown page builder a seemingly overnight sensation. Though first versions of the Elementor weren’t all sleek and shiny, the experience improved gradually with every new release and the userbase of the builder’s aficionados grew exponentially.
By 2018, Elementor has enjoyed a true popularity boom, which, in its turn, gave an immense impulse to Elementor development. Now, Elementor delivers you some unique and truly outstanding website customization features that take website creation up a notch. What’s more, the builder’s power and flexibility can be sensed moments after installation and keep amusing you as you work on your project.
That’s not the whole story.
Currently, you can further enhance the builder with additional plugins and templates. Using plugins, you can make the functionality of the builder even more robust and adapt it to the needs of your business niche. For example, the popular JetElements plugin further enhances the default Elementor building blocks and gives you a chance to experiment with layouts and styles.
JetTricks lets you take command of the visual effects, such as Parallax, hotspots, unfolding, sticky navigation etc. With JetWooBuilder, you can customize the product pages of you e-store right within the builder. All this is just the tip of the iceberg.
What’s Elementor Marketplace?
So far, there has been no single place for finding all the plugins and assets for Elementor builder. They’ve been scattered around the web, and that has been a pain for many. This summer, that’s changing with the introduction of the TemplateMonster’s Elementor Marketplace.
Within this marketplace, you can find all the resources you need to accomplish your project with Elementor at the speed of light. No doubt, here you’ll find some of the most advanced Elementor plugins, such as JetMenu, JetElements, JetBlog, etc. What’s more, the collection of Elementor-compatible themes available in the marketplace is impressive. You’ll find many ready-made website designs for different branches, perspectives, moods, and tastes.
In addition to plugins and themes, there’s one more category within the new-born marketplace, which delivers you some truly revolutionary products. These are the Elementor templates.
How Elementor Templates change everything
As may have gathered, Elementor templates are not the same as Elementor themes. An Elementor template is a set of website building blocks and ready-made designs for a certain niche (or multipurpose). Within the template, these blocks are arranged into thematic pages for your convenience.
The biggest advantage of the Elementor template is the fact that it can be used on top of any Elementor theme or with no theme at all. So, even if you’re halfway through creating your website, you can still add some awesome pages with a template and other pages of your website won’t be affected.
This adds a massive amount of flexibility to every site you build.
What’s more, each Elementor template is hugely customizable. You can get hold of a number of them and freely combine the most exciting and to-the-point blocks from all of them in your new projects. All the elements of Elementor templates are cross-compatible and let you create a high-converting, engaging page with a simple drag-and-drop system.
It’s worth mentioning, that Elementor themes fall into three broad categories. Let’s examine them:
- Jet Elementor WordPress Templates are the ones that partially rely on Jet Plugins for enhanced display. Check the template’s ‘Details’ page to learn which Jet Plugins are required.
- PRO Elementor WordPress Templates are designed for those Elementor users who have upgraded to PRO and now have access to extended editor’s functionality.
- Pure Elementor WordPress Templates don’t require either Jet Plugins or upgrading to Pro.
