This plugin is one that very developer-friendly and gives you the opportunity to use the core elements in Elementor. Let take for example with this plugin you can add a sort of preset title for your site, business logo, or even author box to the Elementor page builder and you don’t even have to recreate them. All the widgets are connected in one way or the other to these element back-end codes, but that why I said in the beginning that this addon is meant to be developer-friendly.
Once these widgets are added in Elementor you can no longer edit your site title or logo because they are now going to be set as default. One very good thing about this add-on is that once you create a design you can save and import it as a template to use later on.
- Translation ready

What AnyWhere elementor addon does is very simple, it allows you to save templates you created so you could use them in other areas in the form of shortcodes. They also allow you to create multiple layouts, create hooks and even add post elements. Just to give you an overview of how it works, I designed a template using Elementor then I used it shortcode in another post and the whole thing appeared the way I designed it.
The addon comes equipped with the exact same post elements as Press elements which include excerpt, date, comments, and author box. This feature can be found in the elementor sidebar under the “AE” option.
