    There are two ways of using Elementor – in template mode and in content mode. The way you use Elementor determines the results. If you use template mode, for example, it takes control of the GP content area and replaces it with your own template design. Alternatively, if you use it in content mode, it adds the elementor elements inside of GPs page layout.

    Is there any way to combine the two approaches?

    In an ideal world I would like to create an Elementor template but with the GP content structure wrapped around it – if that makes sense.

    I can set-up an Elementor template to mimic a standard GP page layout – content/sidebar – but it’s tedious and seems like overkill.

    Hi, David –

    Here’s the problem…

    Typically, the GP page structure looks a little like this:

    <div id="content">
      <div id="primary"></div>
      <div id="right-sidebar"></div>
    </div>

    If I use elementor to edit a page, we end up with this:

    <div id="content">
      <div id="primary">Elementor Content</div>
      <div id="right-sidebar"></div>
    </div>

    I can still use GP to edit the page layout and add/remove the sidebars, etc.

    However, if I create an Elementor page template I end up with this:

    <div id="content">
       Elementor Content
    </div>

    The template replaces everything inside #content. The GP structure of the page is lost – as is the control over the sidebars, etc.

    What I am asking is whether or not it would be possible to create an Elementor template which is inserted into the GP structure – inside the #primary div:

    <div id="content">
      <div id="primary">Elementor Content</div>
      <div id="right-sidebar"></div>
    </div>

    I just assumed there must be a way to “trick” elementor into where it inserts the template content?

    Thanks again,

    Antar

    I wouldn’t know where to begin looking for that – might be worth asking Elementor to see they have any ideas.
