Elementor’s features are responsive and mobile-ready by default; however, you may wish to modify certain settings specifically for mobile and tablet usage.
Elementor makes this task simple with its Viewport Icon on each element you wish to edit, making it simple for you to make changes all at once and see their effects across different screens.
How to Change the Mobile View
Elementor WordPress page builder is designed to be mobile-friendly, offering an assortment of responsive settings which are easily accessible and adjustable on-the-fly. In addition, this tool also enables you to view how your website appears on mobile devices so you can test its layout and structure before it goes live.
Use this feature to test the design and style of your theme. It will allow you to identify any potential issues on the page, such as whitespace between content and header/footer elements that you can solve with Elementor layout editor.
Elementor’s settings are automatically responsive and fully customizable, providing access to a vast array of options organized into sections for ease of access. Each setting features an icon indicating which device it targets; clicking this icon allows you to modify settings on that specific device.
Elementor users often praise its ability to dynamically hide columns based on screen size. This feature is especially handy for making mobile websites more compact. You can easily apply this feature on any element by selecting it and accessing its settings panel on the left-side of your screen; then in Advanced tab, use Responsive dropdown to customize visibility depending on screen size.
With the proliferation of larger screen sizes and responsive web design becoming increasingly crucial, responsive web design has never been more crucial than it is now. Now more people than ever are browsing websites from smartphones, smart TVs and widescreen tablets; thus it’s crucial that your site be designed specifically for these devices – something Elementor makes easy.
Elementor’s Responsive Layouts feature is one of its standout features, enabling you to tailor how your layout appears on different devices. You can select breakpoint values that allow you to design something suitable for different screen sizes and resolutions.
For instance, if you want to optimize your website for mobile devices, select a breakpoint value of 700px or below. Your website will then automatically adapt itself to fit different screen sizes and resolutions ensuring an optimal experience across devices.
Responsive Layouts offers another great feature to make life simpler by hiding columns based on screen size. Simply select the column or element you’d like to conceal before heading to the Advanced tab and searching for “Hide on Mobile screen size”. Once there, simply choose which screen sizes you wish for your column to remain hidden before saving your changes.
Addition of additional breakpoints allows you to configure responsive control values across a wider variety of devices, providing one of the best methods of creating websites with pleasing aesthetics on both mobile and desktop screens. This feature is only available in Elementor version 3.4.0 or later.
This plugin allows you to set custom breakpoints for up to six device sizes: extra mobile, tablet, tablet extra, laptop, and widescreen. When combined with desktop, these seven devices provide responsive controls you can configure. Furthermore, unlike some experimental features that might impact performance when adding more breakpoints at once, additional breaks won’t hinder performance but come equipped with optimizations that speed up loading times in both front end and editor mode.
Another excellent feature of this plugin is that it lets you import and export breakpoints you create, making this ideal when wanting to save a set for use on another site or select default breakpoints when creating devices.
Another method for editing responsive breakpoints is through site settings. Here you can manage all responsive settings that apply to your entire website.
Hiding Columns Based on Screen Size
If you want to conceal sections, columns, or widgets from mobile and tablet users using Elementor’s dynamic visibility feature. This tool enables you to display only certain days or screen sizes without the need for manual changes every time they appear on mobile and tablet.
To utilize this feature, head over to the Advanced Tab of your Section or Column and locate the Responsive option. Here, you can customize breakpoint values for Mobile and Tablet according to your personal needs.
Reverse Columns Ordering can also help reverse the column order for desktop, tablet and mobile visitors based on screen size – although be mindful that hiding content based on screen size alone should be avoided as there’s no telling when visitors might access your site.
Limit your use of responsive breakpoints to those you actually require. If you need to control sections and columns differently depending on screen size, try CSS media queries instead. These allow you to create CSS rules that only apply to certain screen sizes, making the task far simpler and more time efficient than writing rules for every device 100 pixels at a time. Simply look for the Viewport icon on the bottom right side of your editor, select it, and change its settings as necessary.
