The default WordPress way of adding and displaying content is really easy.
You add a page or post. Fill in a few fields. Hit publish.
And when you view that page or post, WordPress uses your theme’s ‘single post template’ to display it on the front end.
There are loads of advantages to this typical approach:
- It’s really easy to add content to the site. Just fill in some fields.
- It’s easy to maintain, because the design of your posts is controlled in just 1 template.
- It’s client proof—they can’t ruin your design.
- It’s efficient and saves time.
- It gives you—the designer—total control over design consistency.
Your theme does have styling controls for single posts and pages in the Customizer. For a lot of people, this is the only styling control they need.
But as a non-coder designer, you’re using Elementor because it gives you total custom drag-n-drop control of your designs.
The annoying rather big issue here…
You can’t use Elementor to override and design your own custom single post templates. Dammit!
Except… you CAN! And in today’s video, I show you exactly how.
You can have all the benefits of WordPress’s default functionality, AND Elementor’s superb styling abilities.
Watch the video below for step-by-step instructions.
