In this anywhere elementor tutorial, i’ll show you how to display your elementor templates, sections and custom layouts anywhere in your elementor website using a shortcode.
When you make changes or updates your templates, changes will apply wherever that template shortcode is used in your Elementor website.
Note: the digits in brackets e.g. (00:02) indicate the minutes of that exact explanation in the video so you can easily jump to that section and follow along.

Install the Anywhere Elementor Addon
On your Elementor dashboard go to Plugins > Add New, search for Anywhere Elementor then install and activate it (00:31)
When it’s activated, it will appear on the dashboard as AE Templates (00:40), click on it.
Create a Template using Anywhere Elementor Addon
Click on Add New to create a new template. Give your template a name, I’m using ‘Demo Temp’, then hit the Publish button, then Edit with Elementor (01:03)
In the Elementor editor, click on the folder icon (📁) to go to the templates library, under Pages choose a template, and insert it (01:22)
Select the section and go to Style > Background, give it a Background Type of gradient, and select gradient colors of your choice (01:44), then click the Update button.
After creating and editing your template to your preference, go to Pages on your dashboard and Add New, give it a name; Web Doc and Publish then open the page with Elementor (02:23)
In your Elementor editor go to Settings > Page Layout, change it to Elementor full width (02:30)
Go to your Widgets area, search for the Shortcode widget and drag it to your canvas (02:45)
Back on your dashboard go to AE Templates, you’ll see the template you created, copy its shortcode (03:04), then paste it into the Shortcode under Content and Apply the changes.
With this, your template is inserted into your page.
You cant make any changes to your template from the page where you’re using it as a shortcode. You can make global changes to the template itself and they will reflect wherever you’re using it as a shortcode.
Make Changes to your Anywhere Elementor Template
To demonstrate how to make changes to the template, I’m going to delete the VISIT US section in the template.
Back to AE Templates on the dashboard ill go to my Demo Temp and Edit with Elementor, open your template with Elementor.
When it opens up, scroll down to the visit us section and delete it (04:06). You can try this out on any other section in your template. Click the Update button when you’re done.
Go back to the page where you used a shortcode to display this template and when you Update, the section you just deleted from the template disappears from the page as well.
When you go back to your dashboard under Plugins > Anywhere Elementor, click on View details (04:41)
You’ll see a description of how Anywhere Elementor works and where the templates you create using this plugin can be used, and you can also see the features in the Pro version of the plugin.
That’s how you can use the Anywhere Elementor plugin to create templates and use their shortcode to display content on your Elementor website.
