Are we on the same page? If so, then this is the only guide you'll need to read as the 5 steps mentioned below will help you set the elementor page as your front page.

So without further ado, let's dive in…

Here are 5 Easy Steps to Set the Elementor Landing Page as Homepage

Step 1: Once you're inside your WordPress dashboard, hover over the Templates and go to the “Landing pages” option.


Step 2: Select the Landing page that you wish to set as a homepage & then click on “Edit with Elementor”.

In my case, it’s the (Demo) Tutor Landing page.


Step 3: Once you’re inside the Elementor editor, from the bottom left, click on the Save options & then select “Save as Template


Next, name your Template & then save it. (I’m saving it as Tutor Landing Home)


Once done, exit the editor & come back to the WordPress dashboard.

Step 4: Now, Go to Pages & then click on Add New to create a new page.

Next, give your desired page name & then click on the “Edit with Elementor” button.


Once you’re inside the elementor editor, click on the “folder icon” i.e Add Template option.


Next, go to My Templates & select the landing page you wanted & then click on the Insert button.

In my case, it’s “Tutor Landing Home”


Note: A small popup for Import Document settings may appear. If you select yes, the elementor canvas layout will be applied.

But if you want your landing page to contain your header & footer, then go to your page settings & select the full-width layout.

2) How to Design your WordPress website like a Pro

Once the import is completed, click on the “publish button” to make your page live. The next step is to exit the dashboard.

Step 5: Go to Settings > Reading and under your homepage displays settings, first select a static page & then click on the dropdown right next to the homepage & select the page you just created & then click on Save Changes.

For me, it’s the Demo Tutorial Page so I’ll select that & click on Save Changes.


Once done, simply visit your homepage & your goal is now accomplished.

Well done! You've successfully set your Elementor landing page as homepage.

  1. It’s been a while since I used wordpress again and I had forgotten majority of it and this was giving me the most struggle I really really wanna say thank you for this tutorial like from the bottom of my heart. I say this YOU HAVE BEEN AN INCREDIBLE HELP!! GOD BLESS!! Thank you!

  2. Hello,
    it doesn’t worked! I created the page and change it as front page everything looks right but it is still the old front page showing as home page! Do you have any idea why?


    1. Hey Patrik, so sorry to hear that.
      Brother, I’ve already mentioned the possible ways by which you can set the landing page as homepage.

      But if you’re still not able to get it then make sure to…
      a) set the custom page (landing page) as homepage under settings > reading settings > your homepage displays > a static page (homepage) > choose the landing page & save changes.
      b) clear your website’s cache & check it in incognito mode

      Apart from this, there’s another way & i.e by using a 301-redirect plugin.
      You can simply redirect your homepage url to the custom landing page using the plugin.

      Give it a try & I hope it works out well.
      Do update me whether it does or doesn’t.


  3. This is bang-on. Exactly what I was looking for, and what no other article could answer.

    Thanks for the quick relief.

    1. I’m glad it worked for you Nate.
      Your site is nicely built & testimonials are impressive.

      One thing I liked about your site is the clarity you’ve in audience targeting.
      Although your site is well designed, I think there are many scopes of improvement.

      Lastly, thank you for the quick comment as it will encourage others to give it a try 😀


    1. Hey Ricardo, thanks for your kind words.
      I just gave a quick look at your site & here’s my feedback…

      First & foremost, the UI-UX is good, the layout is modern & the animations are also done well.
      But the thing that I feel you missed on is the CTA’s. Right from the hero section to the footer, I didn’t find any visible & eye-catching CTA’s.

      You can add a few buttons as a CTA so that the user will take action i.e to contact you.

      Apart from that, if you would like to get detailed feedback, you can email me at [email protected] (just to keep things private)
