Do I need Elementor Pro if I already have Neve Pro?
In my opinion, you don’t need Elementor Pro because, with Neve’s Custom Layouts, you have a lot of design options. With this feature, you can even create your header and footer with the free version of Elementor and display them conditionally on your website. However, with Neve Pro, you are limited if you want to have all the freedom when designing the single view of your posts (Single Template) and your archive pages.
However, the developers of Neve will add more options for Single Posts with one of the next updates.
Do I need Neve Pro if I already have Elementor Pro?
The Pro version of Neve Pro does have a few advantages over Elementor Pro. First of all, you are not limited to only one page builder. You can even create your subpages with Gutenberg (either using the Neve templates or not) and do something good for your site’s performance. Of course, you don’t need the Pro version of Neve for this, but it also offers you other professional Gutenberg templates.
Do you know HTML or even PHP? Then you can use the custom layouts to design completely individualized sections and set yourself apart from all those who use pre-made templates.
Another point in favor of Neve is the Template Cloud, a feature that continues to be sorely missed in Elementor. Create your layouts, upload them to the cloud, and you can use your templates on multiple websites.
If I don’t have Neve Pro nor Elementor Pro, which Pro version should I buy?
As always, it depends on the use case. Elementor Pro basically consists of three main components: Pro Widgets, Premium Templates, and the Theme Builder, including dynamic tags. From my point of view, all three areas are better solved in Elementor. Nevertheless, two main aspects speak for Neve Pro: The performance and the running costs.
Every subpage you create with the native WordPress editor will load faster compared to an Elementor page. With premium Gutenberg templates and custom layouts, Neve Pro makes it easier for you not to use Elementor.
Themeisle offers a lifetime license for Neve Pro*. This means the initial cost is higher than Elementor Pro, but there are no ongoing costs.
