Hi Adam. Thanks so much for your content. I want to create a blog page. Right now I am using elementor free and generatepress free. What I need to know is which one of the two I need to buy the pro to be able to design beautiful blog posts and to have many options to customize my blog. Or if I need to buy both.
I know that if I tell wordpress that a certain page is my blog page, they will not let me use the elementor. But if I don't tell them that, is it possible to make a blog just with elementor pro? Can I write posts with elementor? If I don't tell wordpress that a certain page is my blog page, will google know and tell other people that the certain page is a blog?
I think that by just having generatepress pro I can make a blog but I would prefer to buy the elementor pro because I know how to use it better (because of your course) and I think it has more customization available because I saw the video on generatepress pro about blogs and they don't seem to have much customization available.
Thanks in advance for your help

The best way to get answers is to test the products by yourself.
Adam has created a video with the steps to download the latest beta pro version of themes and plugins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxVZJnVyZhU
You can go to GitHub and download the GeneratePress and Elementor both pro versions and test them. It is NOT recommended for a live site. There you can see all the options you have creating posts. You can also get the astra theme from GitHub and test it as well. It has more options than GeneratePress for the posts but not as many as it could have.
If those tests are not the solutions you are looking for I would suggest you try to crate the post template by yourself. Anywhere Elementor gives some options (you can find on youtube videos about that). The other solution is pods. Pods can do pretty much everything as long as you know how to use it. It requires much more effort and knowledge but it is a tool that when you really learn how to use it you can do many things (except pods there is ACF and Toolset but I think Pods is the easiest one to learn).

Thank you so much for your answer!! I will certainly try that to test the pro version of both!!
I had heard of anywhere elementor but I thought that in order to create post templates, the pro version was necessary.
I've never heard of pods. What is that? Is it a plugin? I'm interested.
But I still have the question about elementor editing my blog. If I tell wordpress that a specific page is my blog they will not let me use elementor on that page. The only “solution” I saw on the internet for that is to not tell wordpress that that page is a blog but if I do that, will google know and tell other people that that page is a blog??
thanks so much!!

Is there any way to build a nice custom blog post page without ELementor Pro?
