Citadela WordPress Theme is fully compatible with Elementor Page Builder. That means you can use Elementor to build your content as you are used to. However, Citadela special blocks that come from Citadela Blocks plugin and Citadela Directory plugin will not appear as Elementor elements. Don’t worry, there are 2 easy ways to use all Citadela features with Elementor (or Divi).
Using Elementor inside Gutenberg
Elementor has recently released very handy plugin called Elementor Blocks for Gutenberg for everybody who wants to use Elementor with the newest WordPress editor. You can basically create your own Elementor layouts and then use them inside Gutenberg. How great is that? This way you can use all Citadela features such as Items map or search results with fantastic Elementor layout options.
We have designed a special Elementor layout that combines our Citadela Directory and Citadela Blocks functionality with Elementor. You can check it on the following url: https://preview.ait-themes.club/citadela/restaurant/.
Note: Similar process applies to Divi builder.
Using Gutenberg blocks inside Elementor
As you can already guess from the heading – it also works the other way around. You can use Gutenberg Blocks directly inside of the Elementor. Even though Elementor does not yet support that feature by default, process is as simple as the previous one. The only thing you need to do is to install plugin called Reusable Blocks Extended. This plugin will create a new section in WordPress admin that allows you to work with Reusable WordPress blocks. You can export them, import or most importantly use these blocks using shortcode or PHP code.
Simply add any of our blocks to Reusable blocks:
Copy the shortcode:
Use the block shortcode in Elementor or any other 3rd party page builder such as Divi:
As you can see from these examples, Citadela theme is 100% compatible with all new 3rd party plugins. If the plugin you want to use follows WordPress guidelines and codex, it’ll work fine with Citadela.
