Example of use
A corporate website may want to display a list of team members. Toolset could be used to set up several custom fields, including Job Title, Email Address, and Telephone Number. Toolset makes it easy to add this data to each team member’s listing, while Elementor brings the magic needed to beautifully display the data on the front end.
Real Estate Listings
Real estate websites commonly need to use custom fields to allow them to display real estate listings, which must display data such as Number of Bedrooms, Number of Baths, Size of Home, and Price. With Elementor’s integration with Toolset, this data can be stylishly displayed on each listing, with no coding required.
