Layers / Elementor Comparison Tables

Layers is a theme, so just as Elementor happily works with nearly all themes, Elementor integrates well with Layers. As with any good WordPress theme, you’ll find Layer’s theme options in the WordPress Customizer. Here you can customize Layer’s theme logo and header options, blog and footer options, menus, etc. If you need more design options, Elementor Pro enables you to design fully-custom headers, footers, single posts and pages, archives, and more.

Layer’s page-building widgets are no longer in the WordPress Customizer. Instead, you’ll now find all the page-building design aspects within Elementor.

Below is a comparison table listing all of the previous Layers' widgets next to the comparable and additional Elementor widgets.
