Elementor Template Kit Installation Guide

Before we get into it, let’s clarify what is an Elementor Template, and Elementor Template Kit, and the difference between them.

What Is An Elementor Template?

An Elementor template is a pre-designed layout for a specific page or section of a website created using the Elementor page builder plugin.

It can include design elements such as text, images, buttons, and more and can be easily inserted into any page or post on a website using the Elementor editor.

What Is An Elementor Template Kit?

An Elementor template kit, on the other hand, is a collection of templates that are designed to work together to create a complete website design.

It includes multiple templates for different website pages, such as the home page, about page, contact page, and more.

Template kits often come with additional design elements, such as custom fonts and icons, and may include other functionality through the use of widgets or additional plugins.

What Is The Difference Between An Elementor Template Kit And An Elementor Template

An Elementor template is a single pre-designed layout.

In contrast, an Elementor template kit is a collection of pre-designed layouts designed to create a complete website design.

What Do You Need To Import An Elementor Template?

To import an Elementor Template, you need the following:

  1. A WordPress website
  2. An Elementor Template or Elementor Template Kit
  3. The Elementor plugin
  4. The Elementor pro plugin (depending on what you are importing)

Do you Need Elementor Pro to Import an Elementor Template Kit?

You do not need Elementor Pro to import an Elementor template kit.

The free version of Elementor includes the ability to import templates, including template kits, and use them on your website.

However, some template kits may include functionality that requires using Elementor Pro features.

In such cases, you will need to have Elementor Pro installed and activated on your website to use those specific features.

It’s worth noting that Elementor Pro has some additional features, such as Theme Builder, WooCommerce Builder, Form Builder, etc., which are not available in the free version.

If the template kit you are using utilizes those features, you will need Elementor Pro to use the full potential of the kit.
