Hello Elementor Theme Review 2019

There is NO theme I’ve ever needed like the Hello Elementor theme, Period.

This is the reason I’m writing this very blog.


Three years ago, Elementor, now one of the best (if not the best page-building WordPress plugins) surfaced.

No one would ever think that just another page builder would shake up existing tools like Divi, WP Bakery and many others.

But Elementor did that.

Now with over 2 million users, Elementor is among the 20 most popular plugins on the Evanto marketplace.

Personally, I’m more than happy, just like I said in the beginning; it’s something I wanted to have since a year ago when I redesigned my blog.

I searched for themes that are said to be fully compatible with Elementor and found that none actually could suit my needs.

I needed a fast, lightweight and free theme with a reliable support team.

Those available were a bit bogged with code that I don’t need and offered options I would never use on this blog.

Therefore, I settled for one; the WordPress Twenty Sixteen starter theme.

I actually wrote a massive guide on how I redesigned this whole blog with Elementor.

In the end, I was glad.

The theme enabled me to achieve 95% of what I wanted but still had a lot of code executing in the background and consuming server resources, including several page requests.

Now, the King comes; the Hello theme by Elementor.

New Journey With Hello

After reading the official announcement from Elementor about this theme, I simply opened a new tab straight away and looked it up.

The Hello Elementor theme came as a perfect remedy to my search for a theme that works best with my blog.

More so, everything here is built using Elementor’s theme builder from Headers, Footers, Pages, and Archives to Blogs.

So, I literary needed a blank theme, or canvas just to have my site running. And this is what the Hello Elementor theme brings.

In a matter of minutes, I had made up my mind to switch from WordPress’s Twenty Sixteen theme to Hello by Elementor.

Actually, I made a video and uploaded it on my YouTube channel on how I installed, tested and got myself going with this new baby.

I would write on and on. But, let me just hint for you some goodies this theme offers.

Summary of Elementor Hello theme key features:

  • Lightweight theme design for faster loading.
  • Seamless integration with the Elementor page builder.
  • Blank Canvas provides complete control for visual design without pre-defined styling.
  • Flexible; suited for various website types with customization through Elementor.
  • No styling restrictions; enabling unique customization options.
  • Emphasis on performance for a positive user experience and SEO.
  • Works with both free and Pro versions of Elementor.
  • Responsive design ensures your website looks and functions well on different devices.
  • Regular updates for compatibility and improvements.
  • Access to an active community, forums, and documentation for assistance and sharing experiences.
  • It’s free (yes, forever!), so says Elementor.


Using this theme is free and it’s a great choice but hey, it’s not like any other theme, it’s blank. No header, footer, sidebar, menus or blog layout.

So to use it, you either have to hand code the rest of the theme sections or grab yourself a copy of the premium version; the Elementor Pro plugin.

This is because the available free version of Elementor plugin won’t enable you to create headers, footers, buttons or popups among others.

So, is this a catch? I don’t know.

But as an Elementor user, this theme is all I needed to have.
