How To Build a Blog Website in Elementor- Video 3 of 14- Elementor Kits
hey there it’s aviva from elementor
welcome back to how to build a blog in
in the previous lesson we learned about
the wordpress dashboard and defined the
essential settings of our website
in this lesson we’ll go over elementor’s
kit library an exciting feature which
provides us with dozens of
professionally designed full website
template kits
we’ll then choose one to apply to our
website and customize it to make it all
our own if you want to learn to
use elementor kits to your advantage and
create a beautiful working website and
quickly stick around for this lesson
a template kit is a full set of
ready-made designs which we can apply to
our site
it includes all the pages parts
placeholder content and settings that
we’d expect in a fully functional
in the past we would have imported
individual templates one by one but with
kits we’re now able to import multiple
website layouts in one shot
each layout adheres to the same design
guidelines making the entire process of
creating a website simpler and faster
and ensuring consistency across our site
now let’s navigate to the kit library
where we’ll find a diverse collection of
professional designs to choose from by
going to templates
kit library
we can refresh the kit to see all the
latest kits
view more information about these kits
and close the kit library to return to
the wordpress dashboard
on the left side are helpful filtering
options to help us find the best suited
kit for our project
we can use these check boxes to search
by categories
and tags
or use the search bar by typing in
specific keywords
some kits will show a pro or expert tag
meaning they’re only available for
elementor subscribers on the pro or
expert tiers respectively
these exclusive kits offer a variety of
templates that incorporate widgets and
features that are not available in the
free version
once we find a kit of interest we can
click on it to view it in demo mode
up here we can click to preview the
design on different devices
click overview to see the other
templates available in this kit
as we can see the kit templates are
divided into pages
site parts
and pop-ups
this travel blog kit looks perfect for
once we’re satisfied with the kit we’ve
selected we’ll click apply kit
before the kit is actually imported onto
our site though we’ll be prompted to
choose which templates and content to
apply to our site so if for example we
only want the templates to be imported

next we’ll return to the wordpress
dashboard where we’ll configure some
more important settings for our site and
view the content we’ve imported while
importing a kit is a great way to get
started quickly with a new site there
are a few aspects of the site we still
need to set up manually the first is our
navigation menu
to set it up we’ll go to appearance
the first thing we’ll do is create our
site’s menu by giving it a name
and clicking create menu
wordpress offers a variety of content
types we can link to such as pages
categories and even individual posts
we can also link to a specific page or
section or we can use a custom link
view all to list all the pages on our
for zandra’s website the menu should
display links to the home
about and contact pages
add them to our menu
our next step is to add the articles
to do this expand the categories tab and
choose uncategorized
this will link to an archive of every
article that is not associated with any
other category
we’ll learn how to change the category
name in a later lesson
now let’s make a few changes to this
click and drag any item in the menu to
change its order of appearance
we can also expand items to change the
text that will appear on our site
menu now that we’re done with our menu
let’s save our changes and take a look
at everything that was added when we
imported our new website kit
starting with the pages area we can see
that several new pages have been added
we can create new pages if we’d like by
clicking here or make quick edits such
as to the page’s title and url by
hovering our cursor over the page name
and clicking quick edit
we’ll also need to update the slug
no not those slimy creatures but rather
the last part of the page’s url
click update to save changes
we’ll repeat this for each of our pages
next we’ll check for and remove any
unneeded pages in order to keep our site
organized and lightweight we’ll delete
the default sample page we can make
changes to several pages at once by
selecting them and choosing any bulk
edit option from the drop-down
edit pages by clicking edit or simply
click on a page title which gives us
more editing options
including the page’s thumbnail image
called featured image
