StylePress for Elementor

Description

This is a free plugin for Elementor Page Builder.

It provides two things:

  • A full site builder using Elementor (design your entire website without a Theme)
  • Adds extra widgets to Elementor (e.g. Tooltip, Navbar, Mailchimp, Modal Popups, Page Slider, etc..)

Watch this introduction video that covers some of the basics:

Design your entire website without a theme. Easily apply a Style to every page of your site automatically using the drag and drop editor.

How to create a website design without a WordPress theme:

  • Go to the StylePress > Styles menu.
  • Click “Create New Style”.
  • Design your layout using the Easy Elementor Drag & Drop editor.
  • Add the “Inner Content” widget to the area that will display your content.
  • Go to StylePress > Settings
  • Apply your Style to the “Global” area

Tips:

  • Make sure “Remove Theme CSS” is ticked in StylePress > Settings.
  • If you find it hard to set global font default, go into Elementor > Settings and tick “Disable Global Colors” and “Disable Global Fonts”. Then install the “Easy Google Fonts” plugin and set all your defaults from Appearance > Typography.

FAQ

Is this compatible with my theme?

Maybe. Try it out. Tick the “Remove Theme CSS” option in StylePress > Settings. Let me know if you have any troubles.

Fonts are not working

Try to install the Easy Google Fonts plugin. This gives some great global font style features in Appearance > Customize.
Go into the Elementor > Settings window and disable the default Elementor fonts and color

Reviews

Promising

Very promising. It’s powerful but has a bit of a learning curve.
Could be greater if more options for menu styling and form styling are added.

Bad…

Critical bugs must be fixed, for now it’s unable to use stying any theme.

Already amazing

if this is regulary maintained an developed further on it is in fact a real game changer! while still ‘beta’ this plugin gives possibilities to expand elementor far beyond every other page builder. seriously.

not free from some little bugs and such in that early stage – but with really big potential and already great options.

so regardless of the latter – full five stars from my side for efforts and encouragement for further development.
great job already.

In progress…

An indispensable extension to complete Elementor. Currently in beta it should not be used in production but to test it … with some worries actually.
A beautiful project.

breaking my theme

Every time Elementor is updating its breaking all the page looks and its taking me 30 minutes to fix it. Since Elementor is updating twice a week its easy to do the math. I beleve the plugin has big potential, since Elementor is a beautiful piece of tool. But for me it didn’t work out.
