How hard is it to write content inside the Elementor Editor and then exit it, just so you can add the Title, Excerpt, Meta Description using the WordPress Editor. Honestly, it isn't that hard to use any of the two Editors, both have a pretty clear interface. The problem arises due to the task of switching back and forth between the two Editors. But what if we tell you can complete tasks like assigning the Title, Meta and Excerpt from within the Elementor Editor?

Custom Blog Template
What is a Custom Blog Format? Suppose you have a blogging website. Not all of your blogs will have a similar type of contents. Different blog posts will have different content and also different media files. Moreover, their layouts and relative arrangements of the content elements will be different. But we can surely find some commonalities between different blogs. Yes, we can categorize different blog posts into distinct classes.
For example, suppose you publish Electronic Gadget Review blogs every day. Now as every business would like to put in the effort for increasing efficiency, you would want to do the same, wouldn't you? Given the scenario, you can create a Custom Blog Format for publishing Gadget Review blogs in the future. Similarly, you can do it for any other type of content you might have on your Website. For example, if you publish Product Comparison Blogs, you can create a template for that purpose and use it for future Comparison Blogs as well.
