Get Started: 5 Easy Steps
How To Get Started Using GeneratePress and Elementor
Follow These 5 Simple Steps
Technically, you could stop here and call it done. But there are a few more free plugins I recommend, to make sure your experience is better.
3. Install the Granular Controls for Elementor plugin.Granular Controls gives you more control over the way things work in Elementor. Usually these additions solve little nagging problems that haven’t yet been addressed by the Elementor team. For example, the plugin allows the Elementor widget panel to be dragged to make the list of available widgets wider or narrower as desired. It also adds options for things such as keeping all accordions closed on page load, delaying when a section or column appears, and enabling a draggable editor bar. Other features are there as well, and more are added occasionally.
4. Install the Code Snippets plugin.Don’t freak out. I know you expect to never have to deal with code. But just in case your no-code bubble ever bursts (and it usually will), you’ll be ready. Instead of adding code to your functions.php file, like so many tutorials suggest, you should manage them easily with a plugin designed for it. No more messing up your functions file, and bringing your site crashing down in the process. With its Safe Mode feature, if something goes wrong, you can quickly delete the last snippet, and return to normal.
5. The last plugin that I consider useful is the PopBox for Elementor plugin.PopBox for Elementor allows you to create a nice popup modal box that contains content such as a form that you designed using Elementor.
Of course, there are plenty of other plugins you may need for your own purposes. Some are directly related to either Elementor or GeneratePress, while others are more general in nature. But these 5 steps will give you the solid foundation you need to create beautiful, and beautifully functional, WordPress content. Have fun desiging!
