    Hello, I would like to have some help on:

    1. how to make the last section on my frontpage to become my footer and how to make it appear on all blog pages and single posts?

    2. I also need to change the sidebar text background to the sidebar background but I can’t do it. It is always with the back bcground on the text. I was trying to change from the customiser inside WP.

    I use GP premium with its template BLOGG and Elementor free. Still learning…Thanks!

    Hi there,

    1. Do you have Elementor Pro?

    2. This has been set using CSS, so go to Customiser > Additional CSS and look for this section of code under /*RIGHT SIDEBAR*/:

    .inside-right-sidebar ul li{
    	background-color:#0c0c0d; /* remove or change the background color */

    The line i have commented above needs to be removed and the side bar color will show throw. If you want it a different color then just change the #color.


    Thank you. It worked. No, I still don’t have Elementor Pro =/

    Ok so that section in Elementor you can save as a template.
    Without Elementor Pro you can use this plugin to get a shortcode for that template:


    Once you got the Short Code you can add this to GP Hooks.

    However, the simplest way to display them would be to use the latest GP Premium 1.7 version. It’s currently in Release Candidate (that is after Beta) and about to go live. You can install this version by going to Appearance > GeneratePress and under your license key check the box that says Receive Beta Updates.

    Once updated i can walk you through adding the shortcode to your site.


    Updated to 1.7v

    OK so assume you saved the Elementor template and have used the Anywhere Elementor plugin to get the shortcode.

    Go to Dashboard > Appearance > GeneratePress and activate the Elements module.
    Elements will now be in the Appearance menu. Select it and Add new and select hook.
    Give it a title
    Paste you shortcode into the content
    Select Hook: before_footer
    Check the Execute Shortcodes

    Then go to the Display rules tab:
    Location: Choose Blog.
    Add Location Rule: Choose Post > All Posts

    Then Save 🙂


    Everything is great now!! Thank you so much =)
