No one can deny the fact that Elementor is today’s most popular WordPress page builder plugin. Following the popularity of Elementor, some WordPress theme developers are offering Elementor as their default page builder plugin. To get the most out of Elementor, you can upgrade to the premium version. If you are lazy enough to upgrade to the premium version since Elementor accepts only a subscription model payment option, you can install add-ons. Alternatively, you can also use a theme that is optimized for Elementor.
Some Elementor-based WordPress themes such as Jupiter X and Monstroid2 are bundled with premium Elementor add-ons. Using a theme like Jupiter X or Monstroid2 is a great option if you have fallen in love with Elementor, yet hate the subscription business model since popular Elementor add-ons like Essential Addons, JetElements, and Happy Addons also adopt a subscription business model. Most Elementor-based WordPress themes are bundled with premium add-ons without requiring you to pay the subscription fee to use the add-ons. Instead, you can get the theme bundle with a one-time purchase option.
Here are 8 of the best Elementor-based WordPress themes.
Monstroid2 is an expensive enough theme, but it is bundled with several premium Elementor add-ons from Crocoblock. It is a perfect option if you love Elementor, but don’t want to upgrade to the premium version due to the subscription payment model adopted by Elementor. The following are the premium add-ons included on the theme bundle.
All add-ons above are available on the Crocoblock website. If buy them individually, you need to spend about $19/year per add-on. The total budget you need to spend to get those add-ons is $124 per year. With the Monstroid2 bundle, you can get those add-ons with a one-time purchase option for only $75. Monstroid2 comes with skins. A skin is a set of Elementor templates designed specifically for a certain website type. You can import the templates in a single click.
