  2. Type in 'Hello Elementor' in the search form and hit the 'Enter' key on your keyboard.
  3. Click on the 'Activate' button to use your new theme right away.
  4. Navigate to Elementor and start building your site.


Most users will not need to edit the files for customizing this theme. To customize your site's appearance, simply use Elementor.

However, if you have a particular need to adapt this theme, please read on.

Style & Stylesheets

All of your site's styles should be handled directly inside Elementor. You should not need to edit the SCSS files in this theme in ordinary circumstances.

However, if for some reason there is still a need to add or change the site's CSS, please pay attention to the following:

  1. Files located under reset directory, should NOT be edited directly
  2. In order to change any of the values defined in preset/variables.scss, add your style code to custom/pre_default.scss
  3. Any new SCSS files should be located under custom/ directory, and imported in custom/custom.scss

Remember that any SCSS change requires re-generating the theme's css files.


To prevent the loading of any of the these settings, use the following as boilerplate and add the code to your child-theme functions.php:

add_filter( 'choose-from-the-list-below', '__return_false' );
  • hello_elementor_enqueue_style enqueue style
  • hello_elementor_enqueue_theme_style load theme-specific style (default: load)
  • hello_elementor_load_textdomain load theme's textdomain
  • hello_elementor_register_menus register the theme's default menu location
  • hello_elementor_add_theme_support register the various supported features
  • hello_elementor_add_woocommerce_support register woocommerce features, including product-gallery zoom, swipe & lightbox features
  • hello_elementor_register_elementor_locations register elementor settings
  • hello_elementor_content_width set default content width to 800px
  • hello_elementor_page_title show\hide page title (default: show)
