Let’s start this PowerPack for Elementor review by briefly talking about Elementor. We’ve always been big fans of Elementor since its early days (see our Elementor review here) and are using it as the page builder of choice in each of our Create and Code WordPress themes. It has moved page builders to a new level – using it seems natural and responsive. A big part of this was the ability to edit the page directly, what’s better than seeing your changes right away? But the other aspect was its interface. It got out of the away, and despite being extremely powerful always felt easy to use.
Another key reason for its continuing success (it now has over 2 million active installs) is that the Elementor team just keep on iterating and adding new features. If you’ve joined the mailing list you’ll see the regular updates from its CTO Ben Pines on the latest additions to both its free and pro versions. I’m not sure if I’ve seen a plugin develop at such a rapid pace before, it is extremely impressive.
Because of its continuing growth it has helped foster a rich eco-system of add-on plugins to add even further functionality to an already impressive product. One of these is the excellent PowerPack for Elementor plugin. This plugin adds a huge number of additional useful shortcodes to help build even more sophisticated sites.
So the next time a client asks, “Can we include a..” – this PowerPack for Elementor plugin might have the answer.
By the way, if Beaver Builder is your page builder of choice, they have a separate solution for that – but this review concentrates on the version for Elementor. Let’s dive in!
PowerPack for Elementor
PowerPack for Elementor is a huge widgets library with 50+ additional Elementor widgets that you can use to create more beautiful and functional designs on your website. Every widget has extensive customization capabilities to you can tweak basically everything to your heart’s content. I tried it out on our Production Pro WordPress theme to see just what you get.
After installing it, you’ll see what it adds below the regular Elementor widgets when you scroll down.
There’s too many to even fit in the screenshot! Here are some of the most useful ones:
- Countdown Timer – extremely useful to highlight a sale or time limited special offer.
- Dual Heading – more of a design feature – but this makes headings look much more interesting. Can give a ‘pop’ to an existing layout.
- Image Slider – a really nice clean way to show product images.
- Image Hotspots – ideal for eCommerce sites, you could create multiple hotspots on an outfit for example and link to each item.
- Magazine Slider – I was impressed by this. It’s a quick way to display your blog posts in a much more interesting fashion on your homepage for example.
- Timeline – I’ve seen this used on ‘About’ pages before to good effect to show how a business has evolved over the years.
- Pricing Tables – essential for many businesses to explain how they charge.
