Install Elementor template kit with required settings

Welcome to this step-by-step guide on how to seamlessly install an Elementor template kit using the Envato Elements plugin. This process is essential if you purchase the Elementor template kit from Themeforest. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure a successful installation.


Before diving into the installation process, there are a couple of things you need to prepare:

  • Elementor Pro Plugin: Template kits require Elementor Pro, which is not included in the kit. Make sure to purchase and install Elementor Pro separately.
  • Compatible WordPress Theme: Install the “Hello Elementor” theme or any other theme that fully supports Elementor to ensure compatibility and smooth integration.

Installation Steps

First Step: Installing the Envato Elements Plugin

  1. Access Your WordPress Admin Panel: Log in to your WordPress dashboard using your credentials.
  2. Navigate to Plugins: On the left-hand side menu, click on “Plugins” and then select “Add New.”
  3. Search for the Plugin: In the search bar, type “Envato Elements” and press Enter.
  4. Install and Activate: Locate the Envato Elements plugin in the search results, click “Install Now,” and then “Activate” once the installation is complete.

Second Step: Preparing the Elementor Template Kit

Ensure the file you intend to import is an Elementor Template Kit, identifiable by the phrase “Elementor Template Kit” in the item title. This distinction is crucial as the process does not support WordPress themes, HTML templates, or other template types.

  • Download the Kit: Obtain the Template Kit zip file from Themeforest, ensuring it’s the original zip file from the Envato Market.
  • Safari Users: If you’re using Safari, go to Preferences and disable “Open Safe Files after Downloading” to keep the file zipped.

Third Step: Uploading the Template Kit

  1. Access Installed Kits: In your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Elements > Installed Kits.
  2. Upload the Kit: Click on “Upload Template Kit Zip File” and select the downloaded zip file.

Fourth Step: Installing Required Addons

Upon uploading the template, an orange banner may appear if additional addons are required for your template kit.

  1. View Requirements: Click on “Install Requirements” within the banner to view a popup listing the necessary plugins.
  2. Install and Activate Plugins: Follow the prompts to install and activate the required plugins.
  3. Import Global Kit Styles: To apply your kit’s font and color profile, click “Import Template” on the Global Kit Styles section.
  4. Import Templates Individually: Start importing your templates by clicking the “Import Template” button on each template you wish to use. For optimal results, import templates one at a time.

Once imported, these templates will be accessible under Templates > Saved Templates in Elementor. Any “Global” templates, which serve as overarching design elements across your site, can be found under Templates > Theme Builder. Remember, each template only needs to be imported once for you to begin crafting your site with a professional and cohesive look.

Congratulations! You have successfully installed an Elementor template kit using the Envato Elements plugin. These steps will guide you through setting up your website with beautiful, cohesive templates, enhancing your web design journey.
