How to Use Inline Positioning in Elementor

Updated: May 23, 2021

When creating a page or template with Elementor, you sometimes want some widgets to have a side-by-side position in the same column. Elementor supports inline positioning that allows you to accomplish it. To give an overview, here is what we are talking about.

As you can see from the image above, there are two button widgets in the horizontal alignment in the same column. In Elementor, when adding a new widget to a certain column, you can only place it beneath or above an existing widget, in a vertical alignment. The custom positioning feature of Elementor allows you to have two or more widgets in a side-by-side position in the same column as the one in the image above.

First off, select a widget you want to set the custom position of and go to the Advanced tab. Open the Positioning block and set the Width to Inline (auto).

Select another widget in the same column and repeat the steps above.

That’s it.

The practice above is great to be implemented on a page where you offer a digital product, say a WordPress theme. You can provide two buttons (i.e. Buy and Preview) that your visitors to choose from.
