7:00 PM: "The Easiest Way to Design - Ocean WP & Elementor" Presentation
The problem when you use a pre-set theme on your website is you don't always have control over the design. The pre-set theme is also a native design killer because all you see is how designed the theme is already and with every customization you make, you see it get shred apart.
By combining the WP Ocean Theme with the Elementor Plugin you can take the BEST sections of each theme and have complete customization over where each element goes.
PRESENTER: Brielle Pearson
