WordPress - Page builders and plug-in compatability
on Jul 23, 2018 at 11:46:11 pm

Howdy Cows,

I've been structuring a new site / video portfolio to house 40+ videos, as sort of a production company / label, either via embedding YouTube links or built directly into the page (if short enough). I have some cool ideas for categories... essentially a genre selection section on an overall infinity scroll site... but I'm wondering if I'll actually be able to do that with the tools I've acquired.

Working with a pre-bought theme, I'm hoping to use Elementor to build the pages. However, I formerly bought some plug-in packages: WP Online Support Pro Plugins Bundle and WP Blog and Widgets Pro. The theme I bought (SATURN) also came with some proprietary plug-ins and page templates. My question: can a page designer like Elementor incorporate the other plug-ins / features / site elements which aren't bundled in its advertised package? Elementor seems very broad and capable, but I don't see any type of object (video) curation/filtration feature. For a specific reference, check out the "Our Folio" template in the Saturn theme below:

I'd like to use Elementor (or anything else comparably simple) to build the pages, but I really need the type of "pick a category, see the specific content" type of feature for this portfolio. My terminology may be off on some of these, but hopefully a few of you get what I'm asking... can Elementor import other third party features / tools to incorporate into the pages you build with it? Any tips / advice are great appreciated.

Thanks all!
- Brendan

Elementor works with most themes but I would recommend that you check with them on your particular theme. I do not remember seeing Saturn on the list.

Since you mention easy to use, you might want to take a look at Brizy, which I believe is the easiest to use pagebuilder in the world of Wordpress.

The plug-ins work inside Wordpress and so you should have no issues there, as they are not contingent upon Elementor.
