WordPress – Page builders and plug-in compatability
I’ve been structuring a new site / video portfolio to house 40+ videos, as sort of a production company / label, either via embedding YouTube links or built directly into the page (if short enough). I have some cool ideas for categories… essentially a genre selection section on an overall infinity scroll site… but I’m wondering if I’ll actually be able to do that with the tools I’ve acquired.
Working with a pre-bought theme, I’m hoping to use Elementor to build the pages. However, I formerly bought some plug-in packages: WP Online Support Pro Plugins Bundle and WP Blog and Widgets Pro. The theme I bought (SATURN) also came with some proprietary plug-ins and page templates. My question: can a page designer like Elementor incorporate the other plug-ins / features / site elements which aren’t bundled in its advertised package? Elementor seems very broad and capable, but I don’t see any type of object (video) curation/filtration feature. For a specific reference, check out the “Our Folio” template in the Saturn theme below:
I’d like to use Elementor (or anything else comparably simple) to build the pages, but I really need the type of “pick a category, see the specific content” type of feature for this portfolio. My terminology may be off on some of these, but hopefully a few of you get what I’m asking… can Elementor import other third party features / tools to incorporate into the pages you build with it? Any tips / advice are great appreciated.
