Hello there!

I am Jay and this is my first post on this website.

Here, I am going to show you how I create my website, design my pages and the plugins I use to make this website sleek and beautiful.

Hope you like it!

This is how my plugins page look like:

I love Elementor Pro and have been using it since 2017.

I can create lovely designs and pages using it for my previous websites.

In the past, I used GeneratePress as my theme but this time, I will just use the Hello Theme from Elementor.

It’s a stripped down theme to the bare minimum. The functionality is also minimum.

Let’s see if I can create equally elegant pages with this theme.

Without any editing to the theme, it looks like this:

For hello elementor theme, the customisation under Appearance is very simple and looks like this:

There are not much settings you can edit. So I have to use Elementor page builder to make up for loss in features. 

The first thing that I am going to add is a header. I went to Add Template -> Blocks -> Header, and selected the first header. But you will notice that it is a floating header. which means some parts of the content at the beginning will be cut off like this:

That’s because under Advanced -> Margin, the “bottom” is -90.

Notice that the page title and theme header are removed. You just have to go to settings and select Elementor Canvas
under Page Layout.

The images that I have used are just screenshots. I have not done any editing or reduction in file size.

Actually, it is a good practice to reduce the resolution and file size if it’s too big, so that the page will load faster. I will talk about it another time.

I will just use the original images for now. We will see the page loading speed after this post is done.

Alright, this post is done! How do you find this layout? If you think it’s good, leave me a comment below.

Alternatively, you can drop me an email and I will reply you as soon as I can.
