How to Install an Elementor Template Kit

How to Install an Elementor Template Kit

A Template Kit is a collection of pre-designed templates for Elementor that share a cohesive visual style. It is not a WordPress theme.  Template Kits will have “Elementor Template Kit” in the item title. 

You can purchase Elementor Template Kits from ThemeForest or, if you’re an Envato Elements subscriber, you’ll have unlimited access to hundreds of Premium Template Kits by connecting your Elements subscription to the Envato Elements plugin.

*Template kits require the Elementor Page builder plugin and an Elementor-friendly theme such as Hello Elementor to be installed and activated before being imported. Some kits may be designed for Elementor Pro, the premium version of Elementor. Pro kits require you to have Elementor Pro installed and activated prior to import. These kits are clearly marked on the item description.

After completing your purchase, you will have access to the ZIP file of the template kit you bought. Although the template kit is available in a ZIP format, you can’t import it directly from the Elementor template library. Instead, you need to install the Envato Elements plugin to import it.

01. Importing Template Kit

01. Install Template Kit Import

Install a Template Kit Importer plugin to be able to import templates that have been downloaded from Envato. Install and Activate the “Template Kit Import” plugin from Plugins > Add New in WordPress.

07. Click Import Template on the Global Kit Styles to load the font and color profile for your kit& other templates too.

Now you may begin importing your templates by clicking the Import Template button on the desired template. For best results, only import one template at a time.

These templates are stored in Elementor under Templates > Saved Templates and only need to be imported once.

If your kit uses Elementor Pro, you will have additional “Global” templates under Templates > Theme Builder.

02. Creating Your Pages

01. Go to Pages in your WordPress menu, create a new page and click Edit with Elementor 

02. Click the gear icon at lower-left of the builder to view page settings and choose Elementor Full Width and toggle Hide Title to Yes

03. Click the gray folder icon to access My Templates tab and then Import the page you’d like to customize.

If you have Elementor Pro, headers and footers may be customized by clicking the menu icon at top-left of the builder and choosing Theme Builder.

03.Global Templates

Global templates are a feature of Elementor Pro and will appear on several pages at once, or under special conditions. A common example of a global template is the menu header, which appears on all pages of your site if your kit includes one. Global templates only need to be edited in one place for the changes to take effect everywhere the template appears.
