Template Kits: A New WordPress Category Launches on Envato

Template Kits: A New WordPress Category Launches on Envato

Introducing Template Kits: the easier, faster and fully flexible way to create complete WordPress websites with Elementor.

Here at Envato, we believe that the way users create websites with WordPress is changing. Our response? Template Kits: professional, code-free and cohesive website designs that you can customize exactly as you need. Read on and watch our video intro to Template Kits to find out more about this new WordPress category, available on Envato Elements.

What Are Template Kits?

What Are Template Kits?

Template Kits is a new category of pre-designed templates for use with a WordPress page builder. While the term was originally coined by Envato when we launched our WordPress plugin in 2018, it has been adopted more widely in the WordPress community. Using a Template Kit, which includes a range of templates for everything from homepages to contact pages, you can create a professional WordPress website in no time.

Template Kits is a new category of pre-designed templates for use with a WordPress page builder. While the term was originally coined by Envato when we launched our WordPress plugin in 2018, it has been adopted more widely in the WordPress community. Using a Template Kit, which includes a range of templates for everything from homepages to contact pages, you can create a professional WordPress website in no time.

Built for Elementor

For launch, we put the call out to our community of authors to create Template Kits for Elementor, the world’s leading page builder, but we’ll be rolling out Template Kits across other page builders, including WordPress Gutenberg in the future. Envato’s GM of Content Cameron Gough explains, “Elementor has created a great product and they have done a great job at building a large active base of customers globally and customer demand is high for Template Kits compatible with this page builder. However, we fully expect to support multiple page builders within our new Template Kits category.”

Template Kits & Themes

Template Kits are a code-free and fully flexible design layer of a website, which means you can bring professional layouts and limitless customisation without design or coding knowledge. An Elementor compatible WordPress theme is required to support Template Kits, however all customisation is done with drag and drop functionality, making it easy to create your dream website.

While there are free themes available to use through the page builder, you can also add Template Kits to the Elementor compatible themes available on Envato ThemeForest.

Not only can you quickly build a website from scratch using Template Kits, they give you the ability to add new designs and layouts to your existing website. They leverage the power of a single WordPress page builder and are tailored to specific industries and visual styles.

Why Use Template Kits?

While we don’t see Template Kits replacing traditional WordPress themes, Cameron says, “Customers that want a pre-packaged, fully functional website template may continue to favor WordPress themes. But increasingly we’re seeing customers wanting to develop websites from a page builder foundation rather than a full WordPress theme. For these customers, template kits provide a leg up on design.”

What Are the Benefits?

There are many benefits to using Template Kits. Here are some of our favorites:

  1. Ease and speed
    Creating a website with a Template Kit in Elementor is super fast, and the results are slick and professional.
  2. Professional Designs
    With Template Kits you can create premium quality websites using professional designs from popular WordPress designers.
  3. Flexible (and code-free)
    Don’t know code? No problem! There’s zero code in a Template Kit to learn, break or restrict you. Template Kits are still fully flexible and customizable, so you’re in control and you can customise your site exactly as you need.

The best bit? Template Kits are available with your Envato Elements subscription!
