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.
