In this article I will tell you about you how can you create an Elementor blog template and how can you import the Elementor blog template.

There is a free version in the market with the limitations in it. To create an extraordinary, brilliant and fully featured design you may need to purchase the plugin first. But you can create much better pages with the free version also.

It depends upon your skills and creativity. You could buy this plugin and use it on your website. There are millions of websites on the internet and helping readers to understand. But in the meaning of understanding, a person needs to take an interest in it.

To build the interest of the reader, the design of the website also creates an important role. If you upload quality content on your website but your website is not responsive and not fully customized then you may lose your readership.

Your website should have a great look and flexibility with great content. You can create a well-designed website with the Elementor Page Builder. There are different options in the Elementor Builder to import on the page.

You can also install Extension plugins for Elementor to add some extra options. But the pro version contains the full control over options. The free version of the Elementor Page builder is also great.

You can contact your Hosting Providers to create a backup of your website, but if you do not trust them then you can create it on different cloud storage with the help of different plugins. You can also put your backup manually by downloading the zip files from your directory.

You have to purchase it. But Elementor is available free in the market. It’s a great plugin to add minor or more than minor changes in the web pages/posts.

But if you want full access then you have to purchase the plugin. I will suggest you to purchase it. The free versions are very limited. Yes, Elementor has very rare limitations.

But purchasing the plugin you can increase the tools for your creative designing.

Elementor Themes

I would like to inform you all that there is also another thing you should use, it’s the theme which is completely build by the Elementor. There is a difference between the Elementor blog template and Elementor Theme.

Elementor templates are specific pages that you import or design for your website. But the Elementor theme is a full website designed with the help of Elementor Page Builder. There are many Elementor themes in the market you can purchase them to build a beautiful website.

Elementor themes contain different and latest functionalities for your website. They are more flexible than any other theme and easy to edit and add up things. It comes up with all the basic layout design and features to create a website, blog, or online store.

Many free and premium WordPress themes are designed accurately to work with the Elementor like OceanWP, Atmosphere Pro,  Astra Theme, Hestia Pro, GeneratePress, and Essence Pro, etc are one of them.

I will recommend you to purchase the theme and do not use free themes, and check carefully if it’s compatible with the latest WordPress versions or not.

Because if it is not compatible with WordPress versions then it may cause issues in the future. The same is advice with plugins.

Final Thoughts

There are many things to check while purchasing a theme or building a theme, responsiveness is one of them. You should check the responsiveness of your design while purchasing/creating it.

There is an option in the builder to check your website design in a mobile/tablet/desktop view. You can check that either your design is working perfectly on mobile and tablet also or not.

Because it’s too important for a website to be responsive with all the devices, most people read blogs on mobile (like students). Create a responsive design to increase your readership and stay time.

So, install the Elementor Page Builder and create beautiful blogs with Elementor blog template features, or buy the theme and edit it with Elementor. So, hope that this article was informative for you and you learned a lot from this.
