Great video once again. Initially confusing but that means I need educating. Maybe I will try doing the staging thing first and try Astra free version to see how my site is affected. My question is, how does Divi (which I have purchased) fir into all this? Once again thanks a million.
The only challenge with Divi is that if you're leaving Divi you need to make sure that you install the Divi builder plug-in. If you don't you will see a bunch of content wrapped in shortcodes that will look like a gibberish of text.
I really love your videos. Im building a website at the moment and my customer wants to upload news himself. it would be the easiest way to do it with a plugin but i cant find one that is not ugly, useless or does not work well with elementor. Can you help out? Greetings Sam!
Hi Adam, thanks for the video. I have a request if you don't mind. Your suggestion on us using a theme that is not locked is very good. I wish to build a local directory site and I have looked around and the best suggested theme is listingpro. But you see, it has its own builder and if I want to build several directories then I have to buy a theme for each one. My request is this. Is it possible to us Astra + elementor + pods + cpt ui to create your own directory. I know you might know other plugins that one can use in collaboration withe the ones I mentioned to crank up a directory with great features like those in listingpro. Let me know what you think?
Nice Overview one remark all in one migration is a one time fee - migrator needs to renewed yearly - and it seems to me all in one migration doesn't gzip the sql part of the export leading to bigger files… never tried migrator though ^^
This is excellent!! Perfect timing. I'm planning an ecommerce site using Astra, Elementor Pro, and Cartflows (so glad for your videos!!). I currently have a landing page built with X-Pro and the links all point to my Etsy shop (just for now). Should I build the new site using the local plugin or can I use Elementor's mainenance mode?
Sorry, but I am disappointed. You did not talk about images! A crucial item in any theme change. And the video mostly focus on your affiliate products :( And, BTW, the real world is not "Elementor" and "Astra", at least not yet...
I would think it very difficult to cover all page builders and all themes. It seems more than reasonable that the videos would use tools which Adam uses himself because he truly believes they are some of the best out there. Mentioning that Astra and Elementor are both Adam's affiliate products implies you believe that this is the reason Adam promotes them. Adam promotes them because he believes in them. Adam gives so much of his time and knowledge freely. There is nothing wrong with being an affiliate for products you believe in and use yourself. Providing constructive feedback is one thing. Negativity just for the sake of it is entirely another. Adam doesn't owe anybody anything.
Thanks for the good advice as usual. I have a question I use OceanWP with elementor but when I look my post with page inspection I cannot see any H1. When I try to put h1 in the title my seo pro told me I have 2 h1. I don’t understand can you help please. It looks like OceanWP put h1 automatically but I’m not sure.

Will you please do a review video on Flatsome theme and how to utilize their Flatsome Studio? What are pros and the cons, their coding, and ease of switching to another theme if need to later on, etc. I was looking into purchasing this theme but later came across your video for Astra, I thought I can benefit using their built-in features like advertising banners and marketing campaigns for advertising automation. With Astra, how can I have the slider options for preview featured products? What are your recommendation for Woo-cart plugins on product management, inventory tracking, sales, taxes, and marketing ( holiday sales banners etc. )? Thank you!
Great timing for this video adam. I wonder if you could take a look at my basketball teams website (www.leicestercobras.org.uk) as im trying to update with a new theme using elementor and oceonwp I would appreciate any help you can offer.
Great tutorial. I had no idea of (or maybe forgot about) the Elements feature of GeneratePress. I've been using GP for years and I feel like they snuck in some enhancements while I was using the other features! Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
Adam, thanks for another great presentation. Even though it's a little slow sometimes, I like MAMP for local staging because it works on a Mac as well as a PC. As for themes with Elementor, I just use the bare-bones "Hello" theme which does not lock me up in a "box." I'm going to give Laragon a try to see how it does. Again, thanks for presenting great information to the Wordpress community and beyond.
