    Hey there Tyler! I'm having a little trouble, I followed the 2017 version of this tutorial and now I need to add a few new pages to my site. The 2017 method no longer works so I tried switching to Elementor from Beaver Builder (I switched beaver builder off) it knocked out my website and made it look terrible. What should I do? rebuild the whole thing to use elementor? I mean it looks a lot better from your video. Or is there a way to do it without starting from scratch?

    Great tutorial! One question: Did you use Elementor Paid Version in this tutorial? I can't find either CSS Classes or Link Relationship when customizing menu

    This is a wonderful video, and it’s made life a bunch easier THANKYOU! For some reason elementor is only working on the home page? The edit with elementor button disappears when I click another page… any suggestions?

    Hey Tyler, I just want to say "Thank You", for doing such an amazing job in creating this video. The information and steps you've provided was very thorough.I have just bought my domain name and hosting, and with all the videos I've seen out there on YouTube and elsewhere, I will be using your video as a guide to help build my website. I feel confident after watching your video that I will be able to build my website to a satisfactory level. If you have other videos on advance customization for wordpress websites I would love to see it, if not, I hope you would consider creating some. Thank you again for sharing your talent and time, I really appreciate it and I look forward to seeing more of your awesome videos.

    Helo world,

    Tyler, thanks a lot for this short longer class about word press and all the tips. It was really necessary for years ago and was never good time to learn untill start to see your video. I could not stop and do it at same time.

    I´m having a terrible problem at the moment of "pages, home, "activate to full page " the Elementor.
    I only have Elementor in an area of my site to use. Is there any problem using another WordPress in other language then English?

    Pls, I will be very glad for the help. After see what Elementor is able to , It is really no more options for me to builder a website in other way.
