First Blog of Shaolin Digital Website
Using ELEMENTOR for page building in WordPress
I will add some more in a minute…
Interesting. I added two HEADINGS under the ELEMENTOR created title. I had to open the “SETTINGS” to edit the title. The two subtitles I added look cool in the BLOG INDIVIDUAL PAGE. But on the HOME-BLOG page of this site you can see the two sub headings are both lost as regular text in the BODY TEXT.
So I won’t add Headings? I will just create them in the text body TEXT EDITOR?
I had problems before when I built websites on the GoDaddy servers. I would build a page in ELEMENTOR but edit it without Elementor and I suspected that caused pages to crash. I would rather not learn by error–but that’s the price of learning without a master.
In setting up these 55 domains (they COULD all be independent websites) at InMotion Hosting, I have striven to learn from my mistakes and by watching YouTube videos: learn some new information like going to school for web desing lessons.
Adam Preiser at WPcrafter.com gets a lot of credit for teaching me stuff. I’ve watched almost every video he’s made in the past two years. I just went back and found some videos by Adam that I’d seen but not learned completely from. That’s why I want to put summaries at the end of my lessons. One important point I missed was using the plugin MAINWP for managing multiple WordPress websites.
In starting these websites I had to consider how I was going to build ALL my WordPress websites. I needed to choose ONE builder program: either Gutenberg or Elementor or Beaver Builder of Divi.
I used all of them. Beaver Builder seemed the easiest but Elementor seemed to have more bells and whistles and so it was: ELEMENTOR is the official WordPress website builder program we’re using. Now, I need to honor and respect them by purchasing the PRO version of Elementor. I hope it’s cheap.
I’m still a little nervous about editing my ELEMENTOR pages outside of Elementor, such as when selecting “tags” and “categories.” I’ve had one scary crash when a page wouldn’t load. Somehow I rescued it… I look forward to being confident with the Elementor plugin.
