Elementor has me Confused….

I'm confused on how to edit the home page. I've been in Page Builder and Set has Homepage Design. I hit edit template and update accordingly. Then when I hit update preview in elementor and change from latest posts in reading to Home Page, it is a blank page. I just want to edit the demo homepage and add a few changes - like the image slider, add search filter like on search page. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks Anna

    Unfortunately I cannot help but just wanted to say that you are not alone! I found Elementor to be totally confusing and have given up on it. I now use alternatives when I need this sort of functionality.

    Yes, it is completely annoying.
    You have to link the template from elementor to the page it is meant to represent.
    sometimes through updates or re-installing a template (because somethings doesn’t work and you hope that will fix it) you end up with several templates and pages of the same time, then it’s work to sort and link the right ones and remove the rest.

    go to edit your page, use the standard editor and sometimes (not for every page and i don’t know why) you see this line
    [premiumpress_elementor_template id=”3164″]
    … this id has to match the template you are using. now for some reason in elementor i can’t find the template ID but if you hover the template name it shows you the link, which looks something like this:
    ….and as you can see the number behind “post=” matches the template id.

    if it doesn’t just change [premiumpress_elementor_template id=”3164″] on your page to the template id you found in elementor.

    I hope that makes sense… but it always feels like a mess
