Elementor for WordPress – How to Make Full Width Pages / Layouts

Worst Customer Service – My website has gone down multiple times, the editor has broken and they had the incorrect credit card on file, I called them and they never told me. Cdm, Canada

One of the most common question for Elementor is how to make full width page layouts. While some templates support full width layouts, most do not so this tutorial will show you how to use a small free plugin to make your pages go full width.

    when I log into my wordpress and look to my right side bar under the title of page attributes template. I have Parent there is stead of template
    I don't have the option of wide screen. My elementor won't work correctly in word press so that I see this template like I see in your video….everything else appears to be working and so I'd like to ask you…. do you know what I'm to do?

    Unfortunately, this doesn't work for me even though I've installed the Sydney theme.

    The plugin doesn't work. When I install it on wp and select "edit with elementor" – the tools menu does not appear. All it does is go to a preview page and nothing else. There are no tools to do anything. I have disabled all other plugins in case there is a conflict but that doesn't do it either.

    I have another question. How do I freeze the main menu to appear on top of each section? In Excel, you can freeze the top column and row. So on my website, I wan to freeze my menu bar and have access to it through
    the website (from all sections).

    Should websites always be full width?

    Also, for example http://www.justinbiebermusic.com/ shows a full width I think but see how you can see the black background? i would want to have a background show. How would I do that? Thanks.

    Great videos. It is the second one I watch and they are accurate!
    On this video I followed all steps and after I clicked update to the new template: Elementor Fullwide Standard I refreshed the page and it was still a block. I tried few themes and I got the same result.
    I noticed that Elementor realesd an update today, 1.51. Is there a chance they blocked this plugin?
    If not, what could be the problem?

    I created a coming soon page with the feature Elementor offers to activate it while still working on the page in the back-end. One of my images will not go full width even after following your steps, is there any way to make this work for the "Coming Soon" page? The mountains behind the coffee bags, see sample here> http://roastedwright.com

    Ps. the coming soon page does not show up in the "Pages" tab because the coming soon page is a feature in Elementor, not a "Page". 

    Thanks in advanced!

    Not sure why I added this Plugin and now all the content has shifted to the left. This is odd. I have selected it as "Elementor Full Width Standard". When I select anything else, the page shifts back to the center. Am I the only one experiencing this?

    Great tutorial but Elementor has changed now. I installed the pro version of Elementor a few weeks ago and it had the (-Page Builder – Full Width) in the WordPress page drop-down. Which is equivalent to what you show in your tutorial. Then a recent Elementor update was done and it disappeared? So getting an image to full width for a web page was not possible (used free Sydney Theme) I am glad I watched this video to see you install the 'Page Templater For Elementor' plugin. I stalled it and everything is back to the way it was. I can now make images full screen. You probably already know this but I thought I would mention it just in case

  • Ankit Nagpal

    But you didn't tell how to make the text full width too. The image is full width but not the text. Why?
