The Top 12 Add-on Plugins For Elementor WordPress Page Builder

Now this video is going to be all about the
different add-on packages that you can get

for Elementor hi my name is Adam from
where I make WordPress videos for non-techies

like me and I am a big fan of this page builder
called Elementor no I’m also a fan of Beaver

Builder and I actually use both and I love
boat Debbie is pretty neat as well I do have

some more videos coming out on the V soon
however this videos all about Elementor now

Elementor itself she’s I don’t even think
it’s a year old here is the Elementor website

right here now Elementor is a beautiful front
end page builder it’s superfast to build beautiful

websites using Elementor and what’s really
nice about it is that it’s free last I looked

Elementor has almost 100,000 websites actively
using it and I’m sure it is just to keep going

up and up and up because is a really great
page builder for your WordPress website now

with that there are a bunch of third-party
add-on packages and I just want to take a

look at all these add-on packages in this
video now actually the best add-on package

is going to be Elementor Pro you can click
right here leveling double over the course

Elementor pros actually an add-on to Elementor
and it adds all kinds of powerful new features

to Elementor these are things that you would
normally have to pay a good amount of money

for just yesterday’s matter fact they released
a new update and it added a beautiful customizable

social sharing buttons that you can integrate
anywhere on your website I am to make a specific

video on that but definitely the best add-on
package is Elementor grow in action when you

purchase it i.e. if you do through my website
I got info down below I will give you some

of my free courses depending on which package
of Elementor that you purchase I even have

a course on elemental probe that some of this
videos about let’s get into it now these are

in no particular order and some of these I’ve
used some of these I haven’t use for one reason

or another this can be very positive video
on all these but I do want to give you one

word of caution when ever you decide what
you want to install on your website number

one I want to see if it looks like the developer
of this third-party plug-in is good to be

committed to it because Elementor is ever-changing
and Elementor can push out an update which

may cause a incompatibility or problem with
one of these third-party plug-ins so you definitely

need to be aware of that and I like to generally
use plug-ins that already have a good amount

of people using that plug-in now all of these
are can have big huge numbers but some of

them do have very impressive numbers so without
further ado let’s get started here is the

one plug-in in the entire WordPress repository
that has my name on it because I didn’t coded

but it was really my idea that belted and
essentially is called full with page templates

and this is a plug and you can add to get
any page builder to work with any demon that

includes Beaver Builder Elementor visual composer
Divi any bait any page builder to work with

any theme fantastic plug-in it’s free we just
hit 2000 active installs very soon Morgan

hit 3000 active insults and here is a video
on how to use it it’s so easy to use so this

is the first one maybe this is in a particular
order anyways this just came out and I actually

think this is really cool and this is something
that I would use maybe I should do a deeper

video on its called devices for Elementor
surf you are a web designer or web developer

and you have a portfolio you can actually
place those images in these divisive frames

so instead of just having an image of a website
you designed you can actually have it within

a frame you can Abbott be a mobile frame laptop
frame a desktop frame it’s actually really

cool what you can do with this now this plug-in
right now it was very recently release it

doesn’t have a ton of people using it however
I think it be pretty safe with this being

compatible with Elementor no problem even
with future updates but it’s really cool is

if you are a web designer to display your
portfolio in this way next is Elementor add

on elements of what this is going to do is
add some additional elements to Elementor

that you can use on your pages and this actually
really actively uses on over 10,000 websites

and just you know I don’t think it shows 11
or 12,000 once you get that 10,000 mark you

have to wait till you hit 20,000 for the counter
to increase and so what this is going to do

is give you options for a flip box text separator
a pricing table a post list sheet separator

animated text which is probably what uses
exactly what you see on my side I got the

animated text let me just go back to show
you what that is this is animated text I’m

pretty sure that’s what that is the animated
text and also split texts now there’s also

some screenshots here let’s go through it
so this is what your price tables gonna look

like I’m sure it has I’m sorry that your flip
box I’m sure it has all the options they change

everything here’s your text separator your
pricing table in this are the these are the

elements that it’s can add this what’s gonna
look like price table flip box and that looks

like it’s it so this is probably good one
to check out if you don’t have the money to

purchase the Pro version of Elementor because
there is some overlap between the elements

this gives you and the elements are getting
out of the Pro version of Elementor so if

you’re on a tight budget this might be something
to check out however there is some overlap

so if you have the Pro version of Elementor
I probably wouldn’t use this plug-in because

of that overlap right let’s move on anywhere
Elementor this actually cool and there’s actually

a paid version of this and adds some unrelated
but very powerful features that just essentially

tells you that he’s pretty committed to this
product and what this does is you know that

Elementor has a very powerful template library
and you can save entire pages you can save

sections and you can reuse these and this
is another one of those things where the functionalities

actually duplicated in the Pro version you
already have this if you have the Pro version

of Elementor what allows you to do is say
save a section and then it gives you a short

code that you place anywhere on your website
and it will show that saved the section it’s

very powerful like I said this is also built
into the Pro version of Elementor so if this

is functionality you want you have no intention
of ever buying the Pro version of Elementor

than this is going to be a very powerful plug-in
for you to have to be able to make something

in Elementor and then save it and may be displayed
as a widget someplace on your website or different

things like that so that’s a really cool plug-in
right there here’s a very cool plug-in as

well and is called header footer Elementor
and this is actually made by brainstorm force

or they make a lot of plug-ins and they are
fantastic very talented group of developers

now this plug-in allows you to design your
header using Elementor and your footer using

Elementor another reason they don’t have a
lot of active installs on this is because

there hasn’t really been any promotion they
just pushed and then there and now this will

only work on certain themes in their listed
right here work on the Beaver Builder theme

I don’t know why they will have that was there
any Genesis theme and the very popular GeneratePress

theme and I actually like what this does is
it allows you to design those areas in what

you’re already comfortable with Elementor
now there is some negatives with it because

it doesn’t really come with some of the things
you need to really design add or you need

a man element for putting together a menu
and it doesn’t actually have that and that’s

where this next one comes in maybe I did order
these a little bit it’s right here it’s called

Navan menu add-on for Elementor to get actually
use this plug-in for that menu which is lacking

in the prior plug-in that I talked about now
I will say that the ability to design your

header in your footer with Elementor but also
have access to powerful menu creation and

and having different options like that this
is something that is coming there several

developers working on this possibility even
one I heard of today I don’t know if it’s

good to be free or paid or when it’s can come
out so I didn’t have time to add it to this

video but this has different menu options
which is pretty cool so you can see right

here the developers demonstrating the very
trendy looking split menu where you have a

split nab menu on the left and the right and
let’s see what other options this is really

cool it’s where I’ll be just a little menu
icon in some clicks on it and then it will

show the menu in this overlay right here that’s
actually really powerful and nice this is

just what a menu looks like this is showing
you I guess like a multiple menus where you

would have many on the top right and also
a menu underneath it so this is actually very

powerful and very useful when you would pairing
up with the prior plug-in now there is no

indication of if Elementor themselves organ
to make it so that you can build a header

and footer with Elementor will see what happens
in that department let’s move on here RA see

DZ Elementor add-on this is another one that
is going to add some additional elements but

these ones are specific to WooCommerce this
is can allow you to add a WooCommerce by button

a product or categories stuff like that so
these this one could be more specific if you’re

using WooCommerce which also brings me to
the next one which is also going to add WooCommerce

elements to your site and it’s called add
on widgets for Elementor known you scroll

down it Ed really is pretty deep and wedded
ads for WooCommerce now this is another one

where this functionality is already in the
Pro version of Elementor and I do know that

that function is can get deeper on the Pro
version of Elementor so if you have no intention

of purchasing the Pro version of Elementor
then something like this is going to get you

some of those features and so you can basically
have all these new elements right there there

might be some additional ones that are added
but I think this is mostly WooCommerce related

and all the images are showing it being WooCommerce
related as well next are some more advanced

plug-ins for Elementor and there’s two of
him and these are more of a developer oriented

plug-ins and it might take a moment to wrap
your head around it like all the other plug-ins

I just showed you it’s easy to understand
what the heck they do write an image frame

new elements etc. etc. these two are not that
way the first one is press elements and what

this is going to do is is can add some developer
elements to Elementor that you can use so

one of them is in our give you an example
say you wanted to create a new page with Elementor

and at the very top you would maybe Dragon
a headline and you would manually enter in

the page title which would be that headline
what with press elements you can drag-and-drop

the post title element in it will automatically
take whatever you named that page in WordPress

it automatically take that and fill it out
there and so that’s an example of what this

does in lots of different regards of you wanted
to drag and drop the author name may be the

published date and all these types of things
that you might want to change in the backend

of WordPress and it what this will I to do
is for that the Elementor version of it to

dynamically change based on what you enter
in the back and it’s hard to explain I’m sorry

if I didn’t do a good job and I probably didn’t
do a good job I might be one that you want

to test I do have this and I do have access
to the Pro version of this I’m trying to figure

out the best use case scenario for for most
people of how this could save you time but

this is press elements right here there is
a paid version of Pro version a paid version

that you can get and I think if you’re a theme
developer or a WordPress are not a WordPress

but an Elementor template developer this could
actually make some things really nice and

easy for you there is a video here that explains
and kind of shows you what you can do with

it and that is press elements and the granddaddy
of gotta wrap your head around it is called

a style press and this is going allow you
to do basically anything to your sites in

Elementor there are some bullet points here
you can do your header and footer you can

is as a whole bunch of stuff does this is
going to be harder to wrap your mind around

I did try using this and it doesn’t do things
in a way if you been using WordPress for any

amount of time it doesn’t really do things
in a typical I’m setting up a WordPress website

flow it’s totally different it will take a
little time to get your head wrapped around

it it does on the surface appear to be very
powerful very feature-rich you can do a lot

of neat things with it but it’s hard to wrap
your mind around it initially and I don’t

know if it still says it down here it said
build a website without a WordPress website

without a theme or something like that and
the thing that I was thinking as I I don’t

really know if I want to build a website without
a theme I I like that structure like the typical

structure that I’m used to going into the
customizer and pulling things together and

changing styles so there are some things about
this I don’t want to be like harsh on it I’m

sure for the right person this is perfect
but for me I did I don’t find it that intuitive

and easy to use for the beginner or Novus
user of Elementor so that the jury’s actually

out on this one I am to try to give it some
more effort and put a little bit more time

into it but I will be honest in that if you’re
not a current WordPress developer that this

is I don’t know why I just feel like this
is doing too much and I’m afraid that something

might break and I’m kind of hesitant to trust
in it that it’s going to be reliable I’m not

saying that it’s not to be reliable but I
have a difficult time trusting that everything

it’s doing is going to continue to work I’m
trying to be very fair here I’m sure it’s

great but I do have a lot of reluctance in
using this and I’ve actually had some people

asked me to check it out and I did check it
out I have played around with that but I find

that it’s doing so much I don’t necessarily
feel like it’s going to be the most reliable

solution but I don’t know that based on its
intuition that’s not based on fact or actually

having use it for an extended period of time
so if you RDT Baker and you see this I’m not

trying to diss your product here at all and
just saying it is a little bit more complicated

and complex if your newbie or beginner user
I would maybe stay around with it or just

play around with it and that’s actually all
the plug-ins now there is are there are some

new ones cropping up and there’s some paid
ones cop cropping up as well I think it’s

very exciting one thing that I have noticed
is when a new plug-in comes out that might

have some new feature there is a possibility
that Elementor is going to just take what

they’re doing or the concept and added to
the free version of Elementor or the Pro version

of Elementor soap honestly if I was in Elementor
add-on developer I would be very cautious

how much time I put into it because Elementor
was really building everything into the core

of the product so if your developer be very
careful so that you don’t waste your time

building something that ends up getting put
into the core of Elementor but I love Elementor

and I want to open this comment section down
below if there is an add-on that I did not

bring up want to chat some information for
down below I’d love to hear about I’m sure

anyone that watches this video would love
to hear about it if you have used one of these

products and it’s been good for you or bad
for you why don’t you share your experiences

in it constructive way down below also if
you feel like I haven’t given something a

fair shake a constructively put that down
below as well I want to hear what your thoughts

and experiences are using Elementor extensions
or add-ons
