I've been using Elementor for a few months now and after my initial skepticism, I was floored by how easy and flexible it is! I'm now in the progress of redesigning all my personal sites and I've stopped building sites for clients with anything else.

Pros:

Ease of use, very flexible, lots of templates, clean code

Cons:

None

Love your review! Really appreciate it!

We're using Elementor with the Astra Pro theme to build a new version of www.tillerhq.com launching in June. We tested dozens of approaches mostly looking for speed and minimum bloat. Elementor Pro + Astra Pro gave us 100% on Google Speed insights and fantastic Pingdom score. And we have easy total control of building our site (in house).

Pros:

Easy to use, thoughtfully considered, fast, no page bloat, best page builder by far

Cons:

none

Thank you SO MUCH for taking the time to write the review.

Elementor is the fastest, most flexible and most reliable page builder for WordPress. It's very well supported by a great community of contributors and includes just about any element you can think of putting on a webpage. It also connects with a whole bunch of 3rd party extensions which makes it even more powerful. It also really shines as a solution for building client projects.

Pros:

Super fast and flexible solution for building pages in WordPress - and building entire themes with their new themer. Use it and love it.

Cons:

None

Thanks so much for this awesome review. I love watching you work!

The first time I used Elementor was to create my "Recommended Tools" page. It's very intuitive. I love their "duplicate section" feature, it saves time and effort.

From GTMetrix, I noticed a "Reduce the number of DOM elements" warning. However, this is considered as a low priority as far as performance tweak.

Good job!

Pros:

Easy to use and much better than others I've tried.

Cons:

None

It’s a great builder, the best by far on WP and it’s actually better than wix and square space beciase you end up with a pr site.

Its vwry easy easy to use, loads of video content and a huge community for support!

My my only personal downside is that the widgets are limited when it comes to custom post types! You can add CPT but you can’t add things like multiple post filters bars, or post search bars or really any kind of multiple field searchable galley. It’s my understanding that this is on the list of thing to add however is this is something you want then dont use elementor because the functionality simply isnt there yet!

ive had to abandon my last project on elementor because of the lack of integration with CPT.

Other than that that it’s the best, we’ll woeth upgrading to pro.

Pros:

Great, easy to use, intuitive design! Perfect page builder that is actually better and more flexible than wix or square space.

Cons:

A huge negative is not being able to effectively use custom post types properly yet! all The CPT info is there, just no decent widgets

Thanks Oliver. I'd love to know which widgets you are referring to. Currently you can include CPT in the Archive Posts widget.

This page builder is probably the best, only Beaver Builder is close, but Elementor is being developed faster and right now it's neck and neck but soon Elementor will be strides ahead in every way. I can't wait until they start releasing the WooCommerce features they are currently working on .

Pros:

One of the best page builders

Cons:

Doesn't work excellently with WooCommerce yet however they are currently working on WooCommerce features right now.

Thank you Idan!

Using it for more than a year. The fact that this simple little plugin managed to get to 800K Installs in just 2 years is amazing!

They keep getting better and better by each version. every error that this plugin may have - they sent an update in a day or two to fix it.

Amazing product. No other words.

Make the whole building a website TON easier

Pros:

Always Updating base on what the audience wants. Always improving...And it's god damn easy to use, even a child can do it!

Cons:

if it took me more than 2 minutes to think of any Cons they have - and yet still, have not found any - it speaks for itself.

Designer and explorer

I work with Wordpress as a werbdesigner since 12 years and in these years I've tried many solutions to develop themes without recurring to pre-made templates: from html+php to Headway and also Divi.

Nothing compares until now to the versatility and speed of Elementor. Absolutely recommended!

Pros:

Fast, customisable, pro level wordpress theme, absolute gorgeousness!

Cons:

some features are not yet available, but they're surely almost ready. The developer is focused and fast.

Really easy to use, very flexible

The editing is practically instantaneous. There are tons of beautifully designed templates to get you started. I also love a small, lesser-known feature where you can choose the HTML element for each row/section (<div>, <section>, <aside>, etc.)

Pros:

Fast, Customizable, Beautiful Design

Cons:

Haven't encountered any yet

Been using Elementor for 5 months with Astra Theme. It's a game changer for sure. I used other builders before, Thrive, Visual Composer, Divi... Nothing comes close to the speed, beauty and functionality. Now with CPT integration and ability to build templates for posts and archive pages and headers/footers it's like I'm a kid in a candy store! I'm excited to see the new widgets they will release for more integration with dynamic content in ACF and CPTs. I def have more use cases that could benefit from deeper integration, which is coming.

I do miss one thing from Thrive which was bread crumbs navigation for different parts of the hiearchy of the page you're building, like section - row - column - content box - widget/element. Sometimes it's hard to select Elementor's sections, especially if they are up top or have negative margins and are layered with other sections.

Pros:

Fast, Beautiful, Easy to learn, excellent templates, amazing theme builder and integration with custom post types! Great team and community.

Cons:

some weird UI quirks, new player so some features still coming but they have been consistently rolling them out!

I loved this plugin a lot, it enables designers to unleash their creativity and build websites without any coding knowledge.

Pro version is just extra-ordinary. I can build any type of business website for my clients rapidly by using pre-designed templates & blocks.

Team elementor is doing great work by updating it constantly with new and great features.

I am not only using this plugin, i am also teaching newbies "how to create websites without coding knowledge" on my educational website for local community. I am training more and more kids to learn this amazing skill of creating websites with page builders like Elementor.

Pros:

Drag & Drop Frontend Editing, Header & Footer Templates, Pre-Designed Templates & Blocks, Custom Fonts Option, Structured Code

Cons:

Pro Version Can't be used in Premium Themes

Thanks Mian Shahzad for the feedback. We actually made it compatible with (almost) all premium themes, if you are having problems with a certain theme let us know. It's actually the first design tool that allows you to design your own header, footer, single post and archive page templates without code, not matter which theme you are using.
