QuestionsCategory: General QuestionsShould I use Flatsome & UX or Elementor Pro?
Alan asked 4 months ago

Hey Adam,

It looks like the Flatsome theme and the UX builder can do a lot of what Elementor Pro can do. Do you have experience using Flatsome? Why might you use Elementor instead?

Thanks for your vids.

You will have a much more optimized experience using Elementor Pro for your WooCommerce websites. You will also have absolute control over all the visual aspects of your theme.

Flatsome is good, it has lots of features and options, but it really has too much if you ask me.

Hi Adam, 
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.
