Yes, Elementor builder is absolutely great, but using it a major downside is evident: we have to edit each page singularly. This is quite a problem when you have many pages with identical elements (eg. sidebars, head, footer).

Templementor is a perfect solution, pushing Elementor limits:

  1. Create templates directly through Elementor. You can create completely new page layouts by using “Elementor Canvas”

  2. Insert the {{contents}} placeholder wherever you prefer in the template, preferably in an HTML block (continue reading to know more about placeholders)

  3. Apply templates to any post (page, etc) editable through Elementor

Page contents will be wrapped by the template.
Have you applied the template to 100 pages?

Just edit it to magically update also affected pages! Isn’t it great?

Affected page will inherit also template page settings (eg. background and padding).
You could theoretically build an entire site, with wonderful graphic, without a premium theme and maintain/update it in minutes!

Advanced users can also apply template to existing templates. For example you could have different head sections while keeping the same footer, without needing to edit footer section for each head template.

Placeholders

Placeholders are essentials in Templementor: in fact having only page contents replacement wouldn’t be a great deal, isn’t it?

You can theoretically use unlimited placeholders to display posts data into templates:

  • {{contents}} – page contents
  • {{title}} – page’s title
  • {{author}} – page’s author (its nicename)
  • {{pub-date}} – page’s creation date (global date format used)
  • {{edit-date}} – page’s modification date (global date format used)
  • {{excerpt}} – page’s excerpt
  • {{comm-count}} – page comments count
  • {{POST-META-KEY-NAME}} – page’s custom field value

Obviously replace POST-META-KEY-NAME with the proper meta name. They are widely used by plugins to store data and you can use it into templates. You could also create them with the maximum ease through WP editor wizard.
