If you’ve been using Elementor for a while, you know it’s a very solid WordPress page builder with a lot of features. However, there is always room to add more functionality, and if you want to modify headers and footers, you will need an additional plugin.

Changing a header or footer in Elementor can be a difficult process if you don’t know where to look for the solution. In this article, I will show you how to use a great plugin that will allow you to create a layout with Elementor and then assign that layout as a header or footer on your website.

Let’s take a look at the plugin in question, then learn how to use it together.

Elementor: Header, Footer and Blocks

The Elementor – Header, Footer & Blocks plugin allows you to create website headers and footers with Elementor. You create a custom layout using the page builder and then set it as an Elementor header or footer element on your website.

También tendrá la capacidad de usar un bloque personalizado con el complemento. Básicamente, la herramienta es fácil de instalar, activar y configurar. Es liviano y brinda aún más flexibilidad y opciones de construcción a Elementor. Como sabe, este creador de páginas ya está repleto de funciones.

Echemos un vistazo a cómo instalar, activar y configurar el complemento Elementor: encabezado, pie de página y bloques.

Nota: este tutorial asume que ya tiene el complemento Elementor ejecutándose en su sitio web alojado en WordPress .

Instalar y activar el complemento

Para editar encabezados y pies de página en Elementor, primero debe instalar y activar el complemento. Puede hacer esto buscándolo en la página de complementos de su panel de administración de WordPress.

Una vez que el complemento se haya instalado y activado, haga clic en Apariencia> Generador de pie de página de encabezado. Verá esto ubicado en el menú izquierdo de su panel de administración de WordPress.

Click on Appearance, then Header and Footer Builder Click on Appearance then on Header and Footer Builder

Ahora, hay un par de temas de los que debemos hablar rápidamente antes de continuar. Este complemento en realidad solo es compatible con ciertos temas de WordPress . Hay dos formas de solucionar este problema:

  1. Install a theme that is compatible with the plugin (list below)
  2. Click on the “Theme Support” tab in the settings section for the plugin and follow those directions.

Install Compatible Theme

The Elementor – Header, Footer, and Blocks plugin is only compatible out of the box with the following themes:

  • Astra
  • Neve
  • Hestia
  • GeneratePress
  • OceanWP
  • Genesis
  • Phlox Theme
  • Attesa Theme

These are the best themes to use with Elementor.

Note: Some of these themes also offer a variety of child themes. All of those will work as well. So your first option is to use one of the themes from the above list.

Use the Theme Support Tab

Once you are in the settings section for this plugin you will see two tabs.

  • All Templates
  • Theme Support

Click on the “Theme Support tab.

You will see a couple of different solutions here for adding theme support to the plugin. Go ahead and choose the one you prefer.

The recommended method should work for most themes. If it doesn’t, try the second method. Now, if neither of those two methods work, then you have two choices. You can contact your theme developer and ask them to add support for this plugin, or you can install a compatible theme from above.

Now that is done let’s go ahead and look at how to use this plugin to edit headers and footers.

Note: You will know you can use the plugin properly because the “Theme Support” tab will disappear and you can now add a new template.

Add Header or Footer For Elementor

Now that you are in the template section, go ahead and click on the “Add New” button to add and edit headers or footers for Elementor.

Click the Add New button Click the Add New button

You will be taken to an editing page for the plugin. Here, you will need to complete a two-step process. You need to select all the options you want for the Elementor header or footer and save them. Once saved, you will be presented with a shortcode as well that you can use to put the block in where you want.

Once you make those selections, you can now actually build the header, footer, or custom block using Elementor. Let’s look at what both steps take to accomplish.

Elementor Header and Footer Options

The first thing to do is to set the header and footer options for the new template you are about to build. You are going to name the template. From there, you have several options. They include:

Type of Template: Header, before footer, footer, or custom block.

Display On: Here you will select where to display the header footer on your site. You will also be able to add display rules and exclusion rules.

User Roles: Select your user roles of who can make edits.

Enable Layout for Elementor Canvas: This will allow you to edit using the “canvas” layout that Elementor offers.

Once you have these configurations how you want, click the “Publish” button and the template styles will be published.

Edit Headers and Footers Using Elementor

Now you can go ahead and actually build and edit your header footer layout using Elementor. To do this, click on the “Edit with Elementor” button.

When you are finished, click on the green “Publish” button at the bottom of the editor and you are all set.

That’s it! You can now display this header or footer in the places you chose while configuring the template. The header footer will display based on the rules you have in place. You can also use the shortcode to display it in blocks or other parts of your website.

Final Thoughts

The Elementor page builder for WordPress is arguably the very best page builder out there right now. That being said, there are a lot of great ad-on plugins available that make this page builder even more powerful.

With this plugin, you can now edit headers and footers and display custom ones in different parts of your website based on the various rules you set. The kicker, you get to build and design these headers and footers using Elementor, which makes creating custom blocks and designing custom headers and footers even easier.

When you combine a page builder like Elementor with a platform like WordPress, the possibilities are endless when it comes to concept and design. This plugin only gives you even more options.

I hope this tutorial showed you how to effectively create headers and footers to display using Elementor. Remember, this specific plugin may take a little extra work to get going. You might have to contact a theme author or use a compatible theme for the plugin to work. However, the process is totally worth it as your site will be as customized as you want.

What other plugins are you using to create customized headers and footers in WordPress? Have you found any that are compatible with Elementor and as easy to build and display as this one?
