How to Install the Template Kit

A Template Kit is a collection of pre-designed templates for Elementor that share a cohesive visual style. Remember It is not a WordPress theme, you can’t install it like a WordPress theme usually. Template Kits will have “Elementor Template Kit” in the item title. Template kits require the Elementor Page Builder plugin and an Elementor-friendly theme such as Hello Elementor to be installed and activated before being imported.

You can purchase Elementor Template Kits from ThemeForest or, if you’re an Envato Elements subscriber, you’ll have unlimited access to hundreds of Premium Template Kits by connecting your Elements subscription to the Envato Elements plugin.

You can use the Envato Elements WordPress plugin to easily import both Template Kits and Stock Photos.
