Basic changes on a website using Elementor

Sometimes, we find ourselves in the need to make basic adjustments to our websites. These adjustments typically involve refreshing images, updating texts, or modifying hyperlinks, all without altering the core structure of the site. Depending on the framework of our website, this task can be quite simple and may not require the assistance of a programmer. Today, we’ll explore how to perform these tasks, specifically when our website is built on WordPress using Elementor.

What is Elementor?

Elementor is a page builder designed for WordPress, empowering users to visually design and customize their WordPress pages and posts without the need for programming or coding skills.

Elementor employs a user-friendly drag-and-drop interface, making it incredibly easy to arrange elements on your webpages. You can effortlessly add sections, columns, images, buttons, and various other elements by simply dragging and dropping them onto your page layout.

With this system in place, making modifications to an existing webpage becomes a relatively straightforward process. In this tutorial, we will provide precise instructions on how to update displayed images and edit text on your website using the Elementor interface.
