    Hello! I have both Elementor Pro and GeneratePress Pro (Premium).

    But, I am unable to understand how both are used to make some awesome template for myself.

    Motive: I want to make a content-marketing template for myself which is somewhat similar to what copyblogger or similar websites have.

    Where text is visible as clean as possible. Where font is so charming to eyes.

    Please if someone could guide me?

    If there are any GeneratePress Examples also where it was used for content-marketing niche? Please share!

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    The question is a bit vague for us to answer.

    You should be able to find lots of YouTube videos on GP + Elementor.

    You can see quite a few examples by clicking the Elementor filter on this site:
    https://generatepress.com/site-library/

    Here are some useful tips from David as well:

    Thanks. Please if someone could give bit of detailed reply.

    1. I want to use Header and Footer of Elementor Pro but I want to use the Single Post and Blog List of the GeneratePress. How to do it?

    2. I want to use same format as mentioned above for the other pages as well such as search, 404 and all the other left.

    Thanks.

    I believe you’d need to create the header/footer in Elementor templates and insert it using Hooks Elements from GP:
    https://docs.generatepress.com/article/hooks-element-overview/

    The content should be from GP by default as long as you don’t activate Elementor.

    Hi, I have some further questions (URL to the website added in first post):

    1. I am using Primary Navigation (and any other navigation), header, footer from Elementor Pro. How can I disable (if anything is active or loading) from GeneratorPress to Speedup the load-times and reduce the line of codes?

    2. If you see anything else which is loading from GeneratorPress but is not being used on the front end?

    Because, I am yet very confused how Elementor works with GP at the same time. But, I don’t want increase my loading times.

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    If you used the Elementor Theme Builder to build your header or footer then it automatically removes the GP theme templates.
    If you used the GP Elements module to ‘hook’ in your Elementor templates ( as Leo suggested ) it also removes the GP theme templates.

    Simply put – if you can’t see it, and you didn’t use CSS to hide it, then it isn’t there.

    Just to understand the context. Elementor and GeneratePress has direct compatibility with each other?

    In other words, GeneratePress is compatible with Elementor dedicatedly?

    Yes GP is compatible with Elementor – it’s most likely the most popular combo among our users.

    You can try Googling “GeneratePress and Elementor” to read lots of related user-written articles.
