Summary of Roles
If you are going to drop in a link without using Elmentor’s linking set up to an internal page, it’s best to use relative links.
More on Relative Links:
If you have a page that goes to an external link (anywhere that’s not your site), it’s good practice to set up those links as with “target=_blank” to open to a new tab/window.
1. When adding a link to a current page on the site using Elementor, click on “Dynamic Tags” (far left icon in the link section).
2. Click on “Internal URL” from the list of options. This will be your most common selection from this list.
3. After selecting “Internal URL” from the list and the list closes, click on the “Internal URL” copy to open the link settings.
4. Click on “Type” and select “Content”.
5. After selecting “Content”, a section called “Search & Select” show appear under it. You can now type in your page name and select it!
To help create an editable overlapping criss-cross design in the header, there are two Elementor Sections needed to build it.
If you open the Elementor Navigator, you’ll see that there are two Sections that you can use to help target changing the Title and the Header Photo.
You can access Navigator by clicking on the 2nd icon in the Elementor bar.
To update the title of the page, click on “Heading” in the second Section in the Navigator.
You can also click on it directly to edit — but just a heads up that it might take a couple clicks since there’s two Sections stacked on top of each other.
To update the photo in the header, click on the first Section in the Navigator. Then, click on “Style” at the top of the Elementor Sidebar.
Double check the background image settings after adding in your image. It should looks something like this (see screenshot).
To set which posts show up in both your Featured Blogs and Guides section, click into the component and open the Query section.
Under the “Include” and “Exclude” sections, you can control what posts show up in the section. You’ll most likely only use the “Include” section, but you can use the “Exclude” section if you need further filtering.
There’s two ways to filter: By Term and by Author. For the homepage, you’ll most likely need to filter by Term. If you click in the “Include [or Exclude] By”, you’ll see both Term and Author options.
If you click into “Term”, you type in any of the Categories or Tags set up on the site.
To change out the logos and/or the background images of the Partner section:
Note: The logo and background images are connected to the same piece. So if you want to change either one, you can do it in one place.
1. Click on the logo to edit the section.
2. If you want to change the logo, you can do so right on that first screen in the “Content” section.
3. If you want to change the background image, click on the “Advanced” section.
4. Scroll down to “Background” and select it to open the settings. It should be the 4th section in the list.
5. From here, you can swap out the image showing up behind the logo. (See screenshot to reference what the image settings should be set as — generally).
All titles auto-pull into pages. For a more unique layout, go the Page/Post Settings and then change the template to “Elementor Full Width” instead of “Default”.
1. The fallback featured image is set at the category level. Click on “Categories” under “M.E. Calendar” on the WP sidebar.
2. Click on the category that you want to add/adjust the fallback featured image on.
3. Scroll to “Fallback Image”. Click “Upload/Add New” to change the image. Click “Remove” if you no longer want a fallback image to show when the featured image is left blank on an event.
From the WordPress dashboard, click “Add Event.”
From there, you use the name of the event for the title, include a description of the event in the post box, and use the bottom Event Details box at the bottom (pictured below) to include the date, time, location, etc.
Include the official event link in the “More Info” section of “Link” and make sure the drop-down is set to “New Window”. If you include the link in the top box, users will go straight there and not see our event page.
The image that shows up in the Partners Archive page is pulled from the featured image of each partner page.
A square 500×500 px image works best.
If you don’t want the logo to be cut off:
Center the logo on the image and keep a decent amount of white space along each side of the image.
Order of the all the menu items in the list does matter. The order of the list in backend will reflect the order that the users will see in their menus. You can drag any menu item to move them to a different location to adjust the order.
If you want to change the name of a menu item label, select the item to open the dropdown with all the menu item settings and use the “Navigation Label” to rename the item.
You will need to click “Save Menu” before leaving the menu page to have the changes applied.
