What is Elementor?
Elementor is the most popular page editor / website builder plugin for WordPress.
It is a relatively new company. Thanks to $20+ million in startup funds, they were able to take first place in WordPress' open-source ecosystem.
Before Elementor became popular, most WordPress themes relied on WP Bakery as their visual editor.
Because Elementor is robust and powerful, it’s compatible with most new WordPress themes.
While there may be downsides to Elementor, it is still one of the best tools for building a WordPress site.
