Top Elementor Addons & Widget Library Compared

If you are interested in creating amazing web pages for your WordPress site without any coding, a drag and drop page builder could be the best option for you. And guess what, Elementor is one of the fast-growing and most popular page builders for WordPress. Also, there are lots of Elementor Addons to help you out.

The recent growth of Elementor represents its popularity. It provides useful widgets (elements) so that you can build your desired web page.

The pro version has more professional looking elements than the free one. However, it may lack some of the special elements that are needed for specific designs. This is where third-party addons of Elementor comes in. They provide you with special elements for free that are not even in the pro version of Elementor.

Besides that, the elements you get with the different Widget Libraries for Elementor do not follow a generalized set of rules. That is why you might feel confused at times seeing the names. You may even find multiple elements with the same functionality but named differently. 

Introducing Elementor

Elementor is a very powerful plugin. It currently has 80+ elements which serve a various purpose. Still, there are enough areas where Elementor can improve. Nonetheless, Elementor has already produced a very healthy ecosystem.

Elementor Addons

You can very easily fall in love with Elementor. And why shouldn't you?

Previously, building a website needed days of pre-planning and then writing never-ending pages of code. But now, with Elementor you can build Websites in minutes.

No need to code anymore. Yes. Good news for bloggers.

However, if you are planning to switch to Elementor it is a better idea to get the Paid version. The number one reason for this is, down the line you might start feeling frustrated due to the limitations. For advanced users, if you don’t get the pro version you will not get the custom CSS feature. Which can be really frustrating.

Secondly, Elementor free version doesn’t include half the actual number of templates that you will get with Elementor Pro.

Do You Have an Online Store Built with WooCommerce?

Then you definitely need the Elementor Pro. You get specific elements that are built for use with WooCommerce sites only. Furthermore, with Elementor you cannot run marketing campaigns effectively! The sole reason behind this is the absence of a Form element. However, you will get one with the Pro version.

And equally important is the feature of embedding Elementor created content anywhere. However, this feature is not available in core or free. So, you will need the paid version to get that feature.

Another fancy and useful feature of Elementor Pro is the Global Widget. You can include one section in three different places. But making changes to the original copy will automatically update the other three.

Why Third-Party Elementor Addons

To enrich the Drag and Drop Page Building experience, there are a dozen third party Addons for Elementor. There are both Single Purpose Addons and Top-notch Widget Libraries.

You don't need the Addons to just expand the functionality of the core Elementor plugin. There are many elements that come with the paid version of Elementor but comes free with its Widget Library Addons. A great way to save some money, right?

Apart from that, you will be getting many special-purpose elements with the add-ons for example – advanced pricing, team, social elements, creative elements, form styling elements, countdown, etc. 

Using Elementor Pro with a third-party add-on, you can get something that you have looking for inside a page builder. It not only extends the features and functionalities, but it also makes sure you have everything in your arsenal to make the most professional looking website for you or your business.  

Is The Size of Widget Library a Good Indicator of its Usefulness

Elements are the building blocks for your Website. You can drag them from the Elementor side panel and drop them on the builder interface. The many elements on WordPress websites are fundamentally different from each other depending on the placement of the text, graphic and layout. 

Now if you say why should you use specific elements rather than a generalized one, the answer is it saves time. Otherwise, you would have to first set up the layout, then insert the content. Furthermore, Elementor offers you specific elements with specific usage and an organized pallet of customization options for the content.

Elementor framework also enables you to treat every element inside the framework in a generalized way. 

And most importantly, every Widget Library uses the same Elementor framework and displays the same builder interface. You can see that the customization options for each element are always organized under three broad headers – Content, Style, and Advanced.

So, we can consider the diversity and the size of a Widget Library as a primary indicator of its usefulness.

The primary purpose of Content Elements is to let you create content. However, you will see Widget-libraries including multiple content elements with different names which basically have the same functionality. This is due to the special terms we have given to texts according to their placement and layout on a given web-page.

For example, Addons for Elementor offer 3 content elements that apparently have different names and different functions but they can be built using the simple Heading or Text Editor element in the core Elementor library. On the other hand, you can save a lot of time by using the Addons directly as you will get the layout pre-built with the element.

Both Essential Addon and Addons for Elementor have nearly the same number of elements for content creation. Being new in the market, Happy Addons has a huge collection of content elements.

Let's Compare The Dynamic Content Elements
