Setting the groundwork for your Elementor single post template
- First things first, yes, you still need a WordPress theme to begin with. Elementor doesn’t replace your theme but rather works alongside it, simply improving on this and that.

We’re going to use that post when previewing your new template. We’re doing that just so we get to work on some real content, instead of having to rely on half-empty posts.
With that out of the way, let’s begin building the template.
