What is Elementor ?
Elementor is a powerful and popular WordPress Page Builder used by Freelancers, Website Owners, Web Development companies to create websites. I have personally used Elementor Page Builder extensively and made quite a few sites using it.
Creating Pages Using Elementor
One of the reasons behind popularity of Elementor is that it provides WYSIWGYG interface to users to to make individual pages , posts, portfolio etc easily. User can add different elements to the page as per their requirements and customize various attributes of these elements like Margin, Padding, Color, Typography etc. For creating a particular layout, user just needs to create different sections and add columns as per their requirement to each section.
Once columns are created under each section, user can go ahead and add individual elements ( Text Block, CTA, Icon Box, Image etc ) .
Column Ordering in Elementor
Columns are ordered in the same manner as they are created – i.e. The column that is first in the builder will be displayed first , while column that comes after will be redered later. This functionality is perfect – as that is what’s required by us to display.
