Websites, technology and development are ever-changing with new ways and possibilities on the horizon. One of these possibilities is a drag and drop page builder called Elementor. The amazing features incorporated into the page builder help to reduce development and maintenance foreach site drastically. With each update, the builder simplifies web development through friendly user interfaces, drag and drop functionalities and integrable plugins. Here we take a look at the benefits of using Elementor as a drag and drop builder:
Most websites in today’s market are accessed via other devices such as tablets and mobile devices. Therefore, it is important to ensure that your business is still accessible on all platforms to help a business reach its vast target audience. Elementor enables a smooth development process through its ability to add custom breakpoints which ensures that the website has a fluid and flexible layout which can adjust to the screen size accordingly. The easy-to-use interface allows the user to toggle through different breakpoints which can then be amended visually through the editor. This ability allows you to test and develop at the same time decreasing development time.
Custom Coding Functionality
For those developers that love to code and enjoy putting their twist on things. Custom coding is still an option via the custom code section in elementor. This allows developers to create their own sections and twist which can then be inputted within the editor. The built-in widgets also allow for custom code to be applied within the widget, allowing complex designs to be created in minimal time.
As elementor develops so do the plugins which now integrate within the editor. Some of these plugins include: Woocommerce, Yoast SEO, Gravity Forms and many more. The more integration, the quicker and easier it will be for a complex website to be built. Rather than custom coding the integration, the same results can be achieved in a few clicks.
The visual way of editing your site provides a modern way of managing your content rather than through a static interface/ toolbar with a couple of settings. It also limits the need for staring deep into the aether of code. The live preview of the site allows the user to create a site in real-time allowing you to visualise key aspects whilst they are being built and made responsive.
Easy to use
The Elementor drag and drop builder is easy to use even if you don’t have much web development experience. You can easily create content and pages from scratch or via templates which can be tweaked to the required design. Once edited these templates can be saved and used again on other pages to create a consistent layout. The ease of use makes it perfect for those clients which want a more hands-on approach to managing their website.
