In this lesson we will first navigate through the Elementor theme builder and end on a blank elementor canvas. Jon also points out that depending on your setup you might have other premade menus and settings from another place inside Elementor. Don't worry, this series goes through the core build of a template for all.
In this lesson we will go through the creation of a the header section in your new template. The template will be split into two parts, the top (header) section of the page and the bottom half which will contain the content and sidebar. Whether you are using sections or contains for your Elementor build, this tutorial will be suitable for both.
In this video we will go through the creation of the template's content section (underneath the header). We will add in a sidebar and table of contents element.
In this lesson we will go through what conditions are and then create a new blog post category for your template. If you already have wordpress blog categories to choose from feel free to skip towards the end of this video to jump into setting conditions.
In this lesson we will go over some of the advanced setting that could be needed for creating the template. Some of these settings may have a manual override from your theme settings. I am using the hello theme for elementor but most themes will allow for everything we are going through.
In this lesson we will add a new blog post to our site, using the newly created template. I already have the blog post written out in Word so feel free to follow through this video when you have content or a post to add.
In this lesson we will go over advanced styling techniques to our blog template. This is optional of course but here we will add in a gradient overlay to our background image (this helps readers focus on the headline and any post excerpt you might be using). We will also resize and format the header background image before submitting the new post to Google.
