How to Build a Blog Post with Elementor & OceanWP

Elementor and page builder plugins like it make it incredibly simple to build custom web page designs without needing to know how to code. Naturally, users began wanting to use these capabilities to build aesthetically-pleasing, visually-stunning blog posts.

However, it should be noted that you need to be cautious when using page builder plugins to build blog posts. This is because any design you build completely goes away when you deactivate the plugin. The fallout isn’t nearly as bad with Elementor as it is with other page builder plugins. Elementor leaves behind your content while some page builder plugins leave behind a mess of shortcodes on the frontend of your site.

It’s not likely that you’ll ever need to deactivate Elementor, but you should at least consider the possibility when it comes to blog posts. If you are a newbie, you might want to check out a more basic tutorial about building blogs. You likely aren’t going to publish nearly as many as pages as you are blog posts.
