Elementor Template Kits

You may be wondering: “What is an Elementor Template Kit?

A Template Kit contains pretty visual layouts that are compatible with your page builder. It may contain a nicely designed Home Page, a Contact page, or some Testimonial Blocks that you can drag & drop onto any page. Each of these pre-made templates are fully customizable in the editor.

A Template Kit can be an alternative to a WordPress theme. First you install a free page builder plugin (for example, Elementor) and then you can install a pre-designed Elementor Template Kit. From there you can design your entire website in an intuitive drag & drop editor.

What’s inside a Template Kit?

A Template Kit is a ZIP file that contains a number of Templates. The Templates within the Kit are all similar in design and style.

A Template Kit may contain several Templates, such as:

  • Home Page
  • Contact Page
  • Profile Block
  • Portfolio Block
  • Contact Form
  • Product Listing
  • Decorated Image Block
  • Testimonial Block
This is an example of a “Template” within a “Template Kit”. This template lets you display any image in a pretty flower frame with some text on the right hand side. Everything is drag & drop within the Elementor page builder.

How do you use a Template Kit?

To use a Template Kit you do not need to know any WordPress coding, or any web development coding skills, and you do not need to purchase a WordPress theme. Here are some steps to use a Template Kit on WordPress:
