Basics

The7 comes with Elementor – live page builder, with no limits of design. It delivers high-end page designs and advanced capabilities, never before seen on WordPress!

You no longer need to work on the backend and guess what the frontend will look like. With Elementor page builder, you edit the page and simultaneously see exactly how it looks like (fig. 1). The whole process of writing and designing is done directly on the page, with no need to press update or go to preview mode.

It has very simple and intuitive interface, but before getting started with building layouts, you may find it useful to get accustomed with Elementor documentation.

The plugin must be installed through The7 -> Plugins. You may also want to get advanced Elementor features: refer to The7 -> Plugins again and install The7 Elements plugin.

By default, the builder is enabled for all post types except Slideshows, Photo Albums and Testimonials. These settings can be overwritten via “WP-admin > Elementor > General > Post types”.
