Envato Elements: A Promising New Plugin for Elementor Templates

Envato Elements is a new free plugin that offers a long list of templates for many website niches, made by Envato, the company behind the ThemeForest marketplace.

In case you missed it, Envato, the company behind the leading theme marketplace ThemeForest, developed a new free plugin called Elements.

Envato Elements offers over 350 unique Elementor templates for multiple website niches. The long list of templates can be used to create stunning pages right from your WordPress dashboard. 

Landing Page & Website Template for Every Niche

The templates displayed on Elements are conveniently arranged according to categories. You can browse through the list to find your niche, from restaurants, gyms, to video production and so on.

If you are looking to integrate the kind of WordPress landing page and website templates you can find in ThemeForest, Elements can be your solution.

Clicking on a certain template will let you preview it before adding it to a page in your website. You will notice that each template comes included with all the relevant parts and relevant sections you can expect to find for the specific category chosen.

Envato stated it has plans to keep updating the library of templates on a continuous basis with new fresh material, so you can expect to see more templates and more categories accumulating Elements grows.

Add It to Your List of Templates or Create a Live Page

In terms of Elements ability to work with Elementor, each template can be imported into your individual Elementor template library. The template would then appear under the ‘My Templates’ dashboard.

Alternatively, Elements allows its users to create a live page. Once you hit ‘create new page’, you will get a link pointing to a draft that will be ready to publish. It’s that simple!

Consistency Between Templates

As noted above, each template is consistent in its look and feel to the other templates of its category.

This comes in handy when you want to use more than one template on the same site. You can take your pick choosing any one of the template set, and there is no need to worry about ending up with a different style for each page.

The Power of Envato

The fact that Envato is the company behind this project means a lot. By harnessing the thousands of talented designers from ThemeForest, Envato is in the unique position to create a truly unlimited and versatile template resource. Each template is strictly scrutinized by the Envato team, all in order to provide its users with this valuable tool.

We are honored that Envato decided to invest so much time and energy to develop this solution for Elementor users, and we believe it has the potential to become a great driving force for the entire theme market.

Get on Board Envato Elements

Last but not least, I loved the fact that this is a free and open source project. Elements is the first project by Envato available in the WordPress repository. This is a wonderful way to begin what I hope will be a stepping stone for further involvement of Envato in WordPress.

Now, while the current templates in Elements include only free Elementor widgets, Envato intends to add new templates featuring Pro widgets real soon, so keep your eyes opened for this.

Sounds awesome, right? download the plugin here and try it out yourself!

  1. Ben hi. We sure need global styling in Elementor (colors, fonts etc) and those styles applicable in elements, templates, pages etc. Themes cannot address this well. Its no much use to get these templates and then need to restyle these pages one by one when we only need a color or font change in a template set. Thx

    1. Hi Guys,
      I have tried to use the Yoga template , I save in my templates, then use elementor to edit the pages, however I am unable to edit anything ? The edit panel on left is blank ?
      Has anyone else had this happen ?

  2. Anyone serious about the fine print (T&Cs) you may like to take a couple of minutes and read that fine print… Not allowed to claim copyright of a site if used a template, even if you modify the template!! Arg enough for me to design my own instead of going down that rabit hole.

    1. Of course you cannot claim copyright to a template you did not design and code. Even if you modify it it does not make it yours.

      You can copyright the contents of the website. For example your images and your words.

      Perhaps you would like to copyright WordPress code?

      Maybe I misunderstood you.

  3. Envato has serious website issue and locked me out of my Envato account every time I tried to check out.

    I emailed them to close the account and they extended the subscription.

    It may be a great product but I’m done with the site

  4. I tried to install the plugin but it gives me this error:

    Envato Elements requires PHP version 5.6+, plugin is currently NOT ACTIVE

    do you know how to solve it?

    1. Good point, Bob but they can be a great starting point and, also, something to show clients before starting to build. They are a great ideas generator and can be adapted to suit in most cases.

  5. apologies for a being a bit dim, but how do you install this plug in. i searched on plugins directory under envato, elements and envatoelements. nothing. can someone help please? so much appreciated xxx

  6. The idea is cool, but I take the position of creating my own model, rather, it creates value in the final work, which is not only the design but several factors that involve design such as color search, conversations, meetings, phone calls, images, original photos, texts, keywords and everything that involves the design of a web site. How can I put value into something ready? This my client can do. I chose Elementor because of that !!! Putting models ready, can help designers that are starting and this is good, but if the designer wants to grow and add value, like me, it is necessary to study and study a lot … spend time and money on equipment, training, lectures … uff started a year with Elementor charging $ 30.00 per month to create and maintain a website, today I charge $ 200.00 which for my region, northeastern Brazil, is an extraordinary value! I hope I have helped, because I see my profession as unique and love what I do, but it is necessary to value and much something so precious and that is falling due to the ease of technology. Sorry for the long text, I do not know how to speak English and I use google translator.

  7. This is GREAT!!!! So happy to see this! Also, Ben do you know when Elementor is going to incorporate global styling in Elementor (colors, fonts etc) and those styles applicable in elements, templates, pages etc? Brizy page builder offers this and is SUCH a time saver. (https://vimeo.com/255728375) Update one color and it updates everywhere on the entire site! This is a MUST for Elementor! Thanks!

  8. This is a very promising tool. Sure it’s always better to craft your own designs, but that can be a great source of inspiration, or I could see myself using it for live wireframes.

    Also, for those that want to get started in freelancing, it can definitely help!
    Going to test it right now.

  9. More templates is nice.
    But looking at 350+ templates would take a long time.
    The 350+ templates are free. A subscription to the rest of Envato costs $200/year.
    So, good to have, but too time consuming to use.

    1. One more comment. The Envato.com site is a hard to use, distracting mess.
      Each screen has only a few sentences. The user must scroll down again and again to read the next bit. Sometimes text appears one letter at time, so the reader must wait.
      Things move and slide around.
      White space and images occupy far too much of each screen, allowing too little room for information.
