Thanks for your vids.
Flatsome is good, it has lots of features and options, but it really has too much if you ask me.
I\'ve been confused for a while whether I should start building my e-commerce store with Elementor or Flatsome.
Even though I haven\'t tried Elementor Pro yet, only the free version, and I\'m already very impressed with it.
But I\'ve heard that Flazsome is even better, particularly for an e-commerce business.
What do you mean above by \”It really has too much\”?
Having built more than 30 websites with Flatsome, I can say that it has an edge over Elementor on one crucial point : the workflow. It is super fast and intuitive. It may not have as many options as Elementor – which I also use – but when it comes to building a website in no time, Flatsome is clearly a winner.
The fact that its page builder is fully integrated gives it an edge : relevant theme options, a superb header and footer builder, the templates parts are great and 100% compatible (that is not the case with templates parts made for Elementor but not always bug free, depending on the theme you are using).
Elementor is really fine, but I find there is something cumbersome with having to deal with a theme that was meant to be used \”as is\”, having to override its native features to gain full control of the header and footer. You end up with an admin filled with useless functionnalities. In other words it is not clutter free. It is a matter of personal choice, of course.
Flatsome is ready for optimal use out of the box. With Elementor you have to build your own toolset first.
Flatsome is marketed as a woocommerce theme, but you can build any kind of website, of course. The only weak point, in my opinion, is that you can\'t create a vertical nav bar.
I'm a bit confused: As Elementor needs a theme to work, shouldn'y it be handy to use the Flatsome theme and then build the pages with Elementor? Otherwise you won'y have a lot of functionalities the Flatsome the has – and a basic theme has not.
It\\'s a very good question which hasn\\'t occured to me. Even though it would be a double investment if you also want to have a Pro Version Elementor.
Let\\\'s see what Adam will say to that.
I used flatsome and oceanwp both and after using oceanwp with elemntor pro i ended up with lot of bloat i ant explain, it seems flatsome was better, now already made my website seems i have to start from the scratch. Also heard elementor create lot of bloats which makes webaite bloat and slow. Hope wpcrafter will shed some light on it, also seems divi, elementor etc create lot of bloat and i am not that techy guy to go through all the bloats one by one and remove it. Even optimize and wprocket is not able to help me. Seems i have to switch back to flatsome.
