To access the Elementor Addon, you’ll first have to install and activate the feature. Please follow our instructions on how to install and activate addons. The documentation traces the process using the Elementor Addon but, in this case, you’ll need to activate the Envira Elementor Addon.
Step 1 – Create or edit your gallery
First, you’ll need to create a new Envira gallery to add, or edit an existing gallery. Follow along with our documentation for creating your first gallery to get started so that you have a gallery to insert when you enter Elementor’s user interface.
Step 2 – Edit a post or page in Elementor
Once you’ve created your gallery, navigate to a page or post and edit it using the Elementor UI. In the Elementor’s widget list, scroll past basic and pro widgets until you can locate “Envira” widget in it’s own “Envira Gallery” category.
Step 3 – Add the widget and select the gallery to embed
Drag the Envira Widget into a widget area in the Elementor preview area. Nothing will show up initially – you then next have to select an existing gallery from the widget options. Once you do, the gallery preview will be generated.
Note that the preview is not meant to be exact – some visual aspects in your gallery that will appear on the public side on your website might not reflect or be reflected differently in the Elementor preview.
Step 4 – Publish or update your page or post
Finally, click Publish or Update your page to save the changes.
