Elementor replaces the basic WordPress editor with a visual front-end editor that allows you to create visually stunning web pages live without having to switch between the editor and preview mode.
Web pages can easily be created by arranging blocks of content with the drag and drop tool. For additional customization, users can drag widget elements to create custom content, buttons, forms, and much more. Elementor users do not need to know code, HTML, or CSS.
