I am completely new to GP and GPP (and kind of new to Toolset and Elementor) and I come from using Genesis with ACF Pro, custom child themes & Extender Pro for most of my projects. I am not a coder by I understand the basics. I really like the way GP makes it easy to customize options, so I am considering translating one of my sites that now needs WooCommerce to GPP.
– What is your recommendation in terms of using Toolset for Layouts and Views vs the GP Elements? What should be the ideal order of operations? What is the impact of toolset in terms of speed and schema markup? Is toolset going to load bootstrap or can I just use unsemantic?
– I need a full size background slideshow for the home page, what do you think is the most efficient option? Would Elementor add too much unnecessary code?
– I really like the WooCommerce options of the GPP 1.8 RC. Is it too crazy to start using it next month for a live site?

– I’ll forward this question to Tom and see if he has any suggestions.
– If you will be using Elementor already then that might not be a bad idea. If not then you can try a slider plugin like Smart Slider 3.
– Not at all. We are hoping to release the official version of GPP 1.8 by the end of the week.
Let me know if this helps 🙂April 23, 2019 at 5:15 pm #877044TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
I’m not familiar with Toolset, unfortunately. If you can achieve what you want in Elements, it’s definitely preferred as you’re already using GPP. If Toolset does something that Elements doesn’t (or can’t), then it’s likely worth using.April 26, 2019 at 9:46 pm #881108Raul
Thank you so much for your quick response!
It is very helpful.
I have some comments about the new v 1.8, will open a new fresh post for it.April 27, 2019 at 7:46 am #881521TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJuly 26, 2019 at 2:26 pm #968165Raul
Just wanted to add an update. I have been testing elementor, toolset and extender pro, and so far everything I tried to do can be done directly with GeneratePress using the elements module. Much clean and efficient.
One suggestions is to be able to add CSS styles with elements so they can be combined with hooks.
Thanks again!July 26, 2019 at 5:29 pm #968222TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Our Header Element does have a custom class field, so you can apply CSS to all Header Elements with that one class.
Do you mean having a custom CSS field in each Element that would tag along with it wherever it displays?July 26, 2019 at 6:02 pm #968231Raul
Thanks to you!
Yes, once I create hooks in Elements you need to define css somewhere else, like the customize css optiom, but perhaps css can be defined for that hook with the specific display rules selected directly there.July 27, 2019 at 6:28 am #968494
