Some of the above links are affiliate links, which means that I earn a commission when you make a purchase via my link. Thanks a lot if you decide to do that! I couldn't make all these videos without it.
For everyone that can't find the "Theme styler" like I have in this video. It's now called "Site settings", but it's just (almost) the exact same thing. Global settings for your whole website.
Hey, wondering if there is a URL where I can see this blog as a live demo? Thanks!
Hi Rino, thanks very much for the great tutorial! Could you comment on the speed of elementor sites? I followed your steps to build the exact same website using the downloaded files and templates. The GTMetrix performance score is only 70% after completing site building.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I watched this video about 20 times until I have a website that I am proud of! After bouncing between your channel and 2 others, my website looks so professional. I could've paid hundreds of dollars to create the website I have now if I hadn't watched this video. This was wonderful and I can't thank you enough.
I loved this video! It was packed with great information, and these longer videos are perfect. Please keep doing what you do.
Please make a tuitorial for Japan Tour…. please please

Hi Rino, I want an instagram feed in the sidebar, I did exactly the same as you did for the instagram feed in the footer. But I won't get the pictures, I only get the tekst instagram feed in het sidebar. What did I do wrong?
Thanks for doing this for us Rino. This is absolutely amazing. Really appreciate you sharing this information.
hey cant find the link for dropbox for elementor templates health blog.
I bought Elementor Pro but I don't have the option to download it to install to WordPress. Can anyone help with this?
at the risk of sounding cheesy, you literally made me cry because I finally found a tutorial that fixed ALL of my roadblocks. YOU ARE AN ANGEL
So helpful, so delightful to watch! Thank you for this enlightening tutorial!!!
The Human Being Styling
When we choose the elementor hello theme, all the links in the blog post become PINK!…Can you please tell us how to change this?
I don't understand the add conditions parts? It is only in Elementor Pro. I'm doing a website for my Final Assessment Project. I'm not from a computer science background. Just want to create a simple blog. But at least like this blog. As it looks nice. If I don't have Elementor Pro, how do I do that. I meant, your home page have all the header and things you edited.
Btw I will again ask if there are questions
I love that video so much, It's easy, organized, detailed and enjoyable thanks a lot for your effort
You really deserve a BIG like, a BIG subscribe, a comment for appreciation and sharing with friends who need these kind of information
note: don't worry about duration of the video I watched it all it's very useful for me and I'm able to watch more time and I like to find all information I need in one video whatever the duration is, so don't worry
I do not see the images, just lots of codes on the link you sent us off to..
You are a STAR, Reno!
When I'm trying to make the visual style – when I go to the new "site settings" and edit H1, H2, etc. – My headers do not update automatically and I cannot view what I am changing in that page. How do I fix this?
How do I find the templates to download? I don't see them in the resources links?
Excellent tutorial. Thank you
Great tutorial! Dude just one question, which is the software you use to make the UX?
Very helpful. Thank you! Going to watch about 5 more times so I get it all down. 🙂
Can we use these templates if we haven't bought the elementor pro!!!!!?????
hallo rino, can you show me how to add attributes like color or size, on creating single product with elementor, i've looked at other tutorials and no one can make it. ?

GENIUS! Thank you so much for sharing this! I'm building my blog using these exact instructions. Now, I would love to see a tutorial on designing the actual blog post using Elementor. I have a hard time structuring a post by getting the pictures situated.
This video is excellent. Yet, I'm freaking out since 2 hours… It just does not show the header on any of my pages… I have done everything step by step like you said, and I have saved the header with "display conditions / include / entire site"… Any idea what I am doing wrong…? Thanks a million in advance!!!
So much value in one video! I never usually comment on ant YT videos, but on this one, I wish I could give you 1000 more likes. I am about to set up my first blog, so definitely going to rewatch this video many times! Thanks so much Rino!
You do a great job explaining things. I wish Youtube had a fast-forward for rewind button, but that's, of course, out of your control. Keep up the great work!
Can you customize an oceanwp blog like this?
I am looking for how to design customised BLOCK by using elementor .
Will you teach us ?
I'm looking for positive response
I'm afraid in my wordpress I don't have the 'duplicate this' option, so I'm stuck in step 4 🙁
Your video was such a life-saver! Thank you for taking the time out to show us this.
You have a new subscriber, this video is exactly what I needed
