    I have created a single post template from elementor and want to use a sidebar from GP, so can I do that, does elementor replaces its setting, etc ???

    Customer Support

    Hi there,

    if you’re using Elementor theme templates then they override the GP templates, that includes any theme elements such as sidebars or hooks.


    Then how should i use elementor in generate press ?? What are the limitations ?

    i want to create different stylish posts styles how can i do that in GP ???

    Customer Support

    You can use Elementor however you want, GP doesn’t limits it uses. ITs Elementor that is overriding the theme templates.

    That depends on what you want to achieve. If you have an example of what changes you need to make we can point you in the right direction.


    Thanks, David, the Only problem with GP is, it requires CSS for achieving anything, and you are quite helpful too, but last time Leo responded not assisting for CSS concern, So I became helpless so updated my elementor free license to paid so that I can avoid asking CSS for my desired design, we customers don’t ask you people to design each and every part but sometimes few sections required designs (for that need CSS), etc.

    Anyways – you have already designed a sidebar section David (Thanks a lot), so now what is remain is an archive posts section, search page, and single posts templates so right now working on single post templates and what i need in that –

    Double Title = Meta = Featured Image = Excerpt = Content (With table of content + Images) = Social Share = Author box = Recents posts = Comment section –

    Guide me if we can do this via GP…

    We have actually been helping you with CSS solution quite a bit if you review all your topics – we just cannot provide full custom solution to every single one of your requests.

    What we do here is to point you in the right direction as David mentioned. If you have absolutely no coding experience and don’t have the time to learn then Elementor is probably your best bet.


    If you have absolutely no coding experience and don’t have the time to learn then Elementor is probably your best bet.

    Leo Is it the way you reply to all your customers ???

    How many of your customers having coding knowledge ???

    I bet 70% of customers are like me without coding knowledge and skills, Are you suggesting everyone to buy elementor or go for an alternative if they ask such a questions??

    I dont know what’s wrong with you, I never saw tom or David replying in such a helpless manner as you do all the time.

    I have clearly mentioned that you cant provide a custom solution hence I bought elementor, but the problem is GP and Elementor having some feature compatibility issues, which I was discussing with David and suddenly you took the call so at least read what was my question –

    As David asked so I requested clearly – What I want and “Guide me if we can do this via GP or not”, But I have not written anywhere “Do it for me”

    The first time I purchased the GP Premium and asked for support (Because I don’t know what do you peoples cover in support and what you don’t) and yes you peoples are cooperative but you (Leo) coming with many questions first (even with some answers you act like quite rude), Refer my previous tickets my most of the solution given by either David or tom, However, when it comes to you then you always gonna find several reasons mentioned before getting any solution from you.

    Last time you mentioned no support for customization so I have not raised any ticket asking for CSS or custom support, And how can you tell that I have no time to learn when I have mentioned twice in my tickets that I am learning from you peoples, I read GP old articles in this forum first before raising ticket if I don’t get the solution then I raise help request.

    If my requests irritate you then you better ignore them, someone else will take care…if he won’t help so, will revert in a polite manner at least.

    GP team having reputation worldwide and your reverts are like this…??

    Here is what you need to do to replicate the layout of this single post with GP and I’ll specify what we can and can’t help with:

    – Breadcrumbs: You will need an SEO plugin like Yoast or Rankmath and insert it using a hook element (we can help with):

    You will likely need to add some custom CSS to style it the way you want (we can’t help with this):

    – Title: This should be added by default. You can center it with this CSS:

    h1.entry-title {
        text-align: center;

    – Entry meta: You will need to use this filter:

    And this one to enable the comment link in single posts:

    add_action( 'wp', function() {
        if ( is_single() ) {
            add_filter( 'generate_show_comments', '__return_true' );
    } );

    Adding PHP: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-php/

    Then style it with some CSS (we can help with this).

    – Excerpt: There is no excerpt section in the single post you’ve linked. The starting section is just the post content.

    – Table of Content: A plugin like this should help:

    It might require some custom CSS to style the way you want (we can’t help with this)

    – Social shares: A plugin is required. I believe the example site is using this one:

    – Author box: A plugin like this might be the easiest solution if you want to avoid custom coding:

    It might require some custom CSS to style the way you want (we can’t help with this)

    – Related posts: The example site is using this plugin

    It might require some custom CSS to style the way you want (we can’t help with this)

    I hope this points you in the right direction to rebuild that page.

    Feel free to open a new support topic for the issues that we can help with so we can track the progress better.

    Let me know if you need more info.
