Please find attached my basic website design.
As you can see, it is a basic website with minimal frills.
Only on the home page, I would like to give a slider to the two images, as that helps me to explain the product better. And it also helps to give a feel of what this is about.
This is the only fancy thing on the entire website.
How do I go about creating this website? Do I need a page builder, or can I do this with GP premium itself?
I would like to avoid page builders if I can, because they slow down the website. Unfortunately, I do not know the ABCs of coding, so I am not sure if I will be able to manage. Please advise.
Also, please provide me your feedback on the design.September 7, 2019 at 8:41 pm #1003741LeoStaffCustomer SupportSeptember 8, 2019 at 5:57 pm #1004386Janani
I have changed the sharing settings. Can you please try now?September 8, 2019 at 9:20 pm #1004428LeoStaffCustomer Support
The header and navigation can be done with GP pretty easily.
– Upload a logo:
– Set header alignment to center:
– Navigation location to below header and alignment to center:
The rest could definitely be a bit difficult if you don’t know any coding (HTML and CSS) at all.
In this case I would recommend using a page builder like Beaver Builder or Elementor.
Let me know if this helps 🙂September 8, 2019 at 10:59 pm #1004458Harry
I would recommend the free version of Elementor. It takes a bit of practice, but watching some tutorials on youtube will help. It took about 1-2 hours to play around with the settings to get comfortable with it.September 9, 2019 at 8:25 am #1004881LeoStaffCustomer SupportSeptember 9, 2019 at 7:56 pm #1005348Janani
Thank you all. My only problem with page builders is that I have heard they slow down the website. But if you say that coding is absolutely required,then I guess I don’t have choice.
i tried installing free version of elementor,but it does not work.can you help?
Also,under elements -page hero,I have rescaled my image to 1600*1000 and set it as background featured image.but only part of the image appears on screen.why is this?do I need to crop the image or change something in the settings?September 9, 2019 at 10:14 pm #1005387Harry
Make sure you click on activate Elementor in the plugin settings. I had this issue with a plugin recently and didn’t realise it wasn’t activated. When you go to the post section you will see an option to edit with Elementor.September 10, 2019 at 2:15 am #1005500Janani
No, the plugin is already activated. I have done all troubleshooting as mentioned by the elementor team, but nothing works. I have even contacted my hosting company. Still does not load. Not sure what the problem is.September 10, 2019 at 3:23 am #1005539DavidStaffCustomer Support
Header Elements – they place your Image as a CSS Background image that is set to cover the element, to make the image remain visible use % top and bottom padding instead of PX to keep it in scale. To calculate the % padding you need:
Height of image / Width of Image x 100 e.g 1000 / 1600 = 0.625 x 100 = 63% (rounded).
So now split that between top 32% padding and bottom 31% padding.
What exactly is the issue withe Elementor ? Is the Edit with Element button visible? If so what happens when you click it ? Any errors or is it a white screen?September 10, 2019 at 3:52 am #1005560Janani
Header: I have given the padding exactly as you said, but the complete image is not visible on the screen. Only part of it is visible.
When i click on edit elementor, I only get a white screen.September 10, 2019 at 5:16 am #1005630DavidStaffCustomer Support
If you have content within the Header Element then this needs to be considered within your padding. Theres no simple way to calculate that but try reducing the padding % down until the image is visible.
Elementor – this is generally to do with PHP memory being too low: Need a minimum of 256meg or the PHP version which should be 7.x.September 10, 2019 at 9:17 am #1005944Janani
How to check PHP memory?and how do I increase it?September 10, 2019 at 9:32 am #1005969LeoStaffCustomer Support
Check with your host is the easiest way:

Hi, I am doing this without Elementor.
I have adjusted the height and width of the page header. I have also cropped the image so that it fits the page. All is good except the last bottom of the image.
The last bottom of the image still not appearing although there is still space. Instead, the next section starts appearing at the bottom of the page header. How do I correct this and make the full image appear?
