It depends which default theme you are using.
In the dashboard, go to Appearance > Themes and switch to a different theme.
You should also create a menu, logo etc before.
Creating the header and footer elements is possible with Elementor Pro, BTW

I am using the default theme i.e Twenty Seventeen. If I can’t see the mentioned elements in that, please recommend the theme it is likely to work with.
I can’t recommend a theme. GeneratePress, Oceanwp and Astra are free and are quite popular
I have activated the Oceanwp theme. The result is the same – See Screenshot
Hence the issue is not Theme specific. Kindly suggest how to troubleshoot the same further.
You havent added a menu through the WordPress dashboard.https://youtu.be/lUAWMnvOYFI
@benpines That’s exactly my query. As mentioned earlier, the video shows the menu already added when a first new page is added.
That means, incase of the video a menu has been already added beforehand? Since it is a getting started video i.e first step, its confusing.
Elementor is not the tool to create menus with. WordPress is. I sent a video explaining how to do it. I can’t do more than that.
Most ‘how to make a website’ tutorials shoe this. I siggest you look into it
@benpines neither am I asking help as how to create a menu or a website. I am asking a very particular clarification with regard to a plugin that you support.
Let me repost the query that I asked in the first go.
This is the Getting started video tutorial for Elementor – Video
At 00.21 secs of this video, it explains as to how to create a first page with Elementor. It shows a menu on top of the new page being created.
Since this is the first page being created, Does it mean the menu was created before the first page creation?
A simple yes/no will suffice and will do a lot of help for starting up.
Yes, build the menu before
@benpines Thanks for the confirmation.
