StylePress for Elementor

Description

This is a free plugin for Elementor Page Builder.

It provides two things:

  • A full site builder using Elementor (design your entire website without a Theme)
  • Adds extra widgets to Elementor (e.g. Tooltip, Navbar, Mailchimp, Modal Popups, Page Slider, etc..)

Watch this introduction video that covers some of the basics:

Design your entire website without a theme. Easily apply a Style to every page of your site automatically using the drag and drop editor.

How to create a website design without a WordPress theme:

  • Go to the StylePress > Styles menu.
  • Click “Create New Style”.
  • Design your layout using the Easy Elementor Drag & Drop editor.
  • Add the “Inner Content” widget to the area that will display your content.
  • Go to StylePress > Settings
  • Apply your Style to the “Global” area

Tips:

  • Make sure “Remove Theme CSS” is ticked in StylePress > Settings.
  • If you find it hard to set global font default, go into Elementor > Settings and tick “Disable Global Colors” and “Disable Global Fonts”. Then install the “Easy Google Fonts” plugin and set all your defaults from Appearance > Typography.

FAQ

Is this compatible with my theme?

Maybe. Try it out. Tick the “Remove Theme CSS” option in StylePress > Settings. Let me know if you have any troubles.

Fonts are not working

Try to install the Easy Google Fonts plugin. This gives some great global font style features in Appearance > Customize.
Go into the Elementor > Settings window and disable the default Elementor fonts and color

Reviews

Works good but NEEDS improvements

I really love this plugin and it has awesome potential. In-fact it has so much bundled in for free and that makes it superb. Only downfall is, it’s no longer being updated and as a result a few things are quite broken. The developer doesn’t seem to be interested in fixing anything or this project is abandoned sadly.

So far, one of the biggest things I noticed that is broken is all the links. When you enable StylePress on a site the normal link function in Elementor then becomes broken. The options to open link in a new tab/same window etc no longer show up and that’s unfortunate. Besides that, there are a few others too, but I am really hoping that the developer will work on this plugin again. So many of us on here, on Facebook, on Github have been asking, or if not, please pass on to another developer who’s willing to fork and maintain this project.

So much for free!

No requirement to use any other plugin, this plugin solved all of my needs. There are no bugs at all (atleast upto this time)

StylePress Is The BOMB!

All I can say about StylePress for the Elementor plugin is WOW! This plugin is going to make putting together a decent website a whole lot faster and easier. StylePress is very intuitive and works very well. I know it is just a “Beta” version but when it gets developed further everyone and their brother are going to want this plugin.

Good work guys…please keep it up.

Promising

Very promising. It’s powerful but has a bit of a learning curve.
Could be greater if more options for menu styling and form styling are added.

Bad…

Critical bugs must be fixed, for now it’s unable to use stying any theme.
