Don’t worry! The Hello theme’s minimal style and plain layout are perfectly normal in the beginning.

As mentioned in the article, “What is a WordPress Theme?” the Hello theme was developed by Elementor in order to provide users with a lightweight, minimal design optimized to give users the greatest flexibility when building their sites. The Hello theme allows all Elementor websites to start out as a blank canvas because the theme includes only basic browser compatibility styling. 

Why should you use the Elementor Hello theme?

The Elementor Hello theme is a great option for both beginners and advanced users. On one hand, it works well with Elementor’s website kits, while on the other, its versatility allows creators to experiment and show off their artistic side.

Minimal styling 

Less is definitely more with the Hello theme. Hello is a great starter theme because it doesn’t have a lot of styling and gives you a wide range of design freedom. With so much room to run, you can use this theme to create virtually any type of website. 

Made for Elementor

The Hello theme was designed by Elementor, so you’ll never have compatibility issues with the Elementor Editor or Theme Builder. Hello is a quick-loading theme that works with most popular WordPress plugins.  

Fast and lightweight

The Elementor Hello theme only uses 6KB of resources–far less than most other themes. The server only needs to make two requests before a visitor can see the website, making it a great choice for your landing pages.
