Apply a kit (Hosting)

Last Update: September 21, 2023

What do website kits contain?

Each Elementor website kit will vary in terms of what it contains. Most will have headers, which typically include a navigation menu with buttons. Likewise, you’ll normally find a footer containing contact information, a website map, and social media links. 

Kits often provide you with common page templates like the 404 error page, About us page, and more. You’ll also find that kits provide you with global colors and global fonts that you can change after importing them.

Elementor website kits are created to give you a common theme or style, so it’s a good rule of thumb to import every element of the kit together. 

However, there are certain circumstances where you may want to apply only certain parts of a kit. For instance, you may only want the 404 page or header of a certain kit to use on your site.

Note: Using elements of two different kits on your site is possible, but should only be done by experienced Elementor users. 

Applying the website kit

To apply a website kit, follow these steps:

Note: If you want to customize the site parts you import, read about the additional steps you need to follow in the next section.

  1. Click the Apply Kit button in the top-right corner. (Note: Elementor may ask you to enable the importation of SVGs before you apply the kit.)

  2. Select Customize or Apply All. You’ll be asked whether you want to apply the entire kit or customize the parts you want to import. If you’re not an experienced Elementor user, we recommend selecting Apply All.
    Prompt asking if you want to customize the import or apply all of the kit features.
    Unless you want leave out some parts of the kit click Apply All.

  3. Select Enable if you’re prompted to enable Elementor to scan the website kit’s SVG files.

    It’s always a good idea to scan SVGs for malware!

  4. Wait for the importer to complete. Don’t close this screen until the process is finished! When your import is successful, you’ll see a screen showing information about the import.
