How to Use Custom CSS in Elementor

Table of Contents

Elementor is a popular page builder plugin for WordPress that allows you to create stunning designs without having to write a single line of code. One of the standout features of Elementor is its ability to let you customize every aspect of your website’s design. However, sometimes you may need to add some custom CSS to achieve the look and functionality you desire. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at how to use custom CSS in Elementor to create the website of your dreams.

Adding Custom CSS to Elementor:

The first step to using custom CSS in Elementor is adding the CSS code to your website. There are a few different ways to do this, but the easiest is to add the CSS code directly to the Elementor editor. Simply navigate to the page you want to add the CSS to, open the Elementor editor, and click on the “Custom CSS” option under the “Advanced” tab. You can then enter the CSS code you want to add.

Targeting Elements with CSS:

The next step is to target the specific element you want to style with your CSS code. Elementor offers a few different ways to do this. The first is to use the default CSS selectors such as element ID, class, or tag. You can also use the element type selector, which allows you to target all elements of a specific type, such as all buttons or all headings.

Creating Custom CSS Classes:

If you want to style multiple elements on your website in the same way, then creating custom CSS classes is a good option. This way, you can add the same class to multiple elements and apply the style once, rather than adding the same style to each element separately. To create a custom CSS class in Elementor, open the page you want to add it to and click on the “Custom CSS” option under the “Advanced” tab. You can then enter the class name and the CSS code, which will be applied to all elements with the class.

Using Conditional CSS:

Conditional CSS allows you to apply different styles to elements depending on certain criteria. For example, you can apply different styles to different devices or screen sizes, or to elements that are hovered over or clicked on. To use conditional CSS in Elementor, you will need to use media queries or pseudo-classes. Elementor has a built-in CSS editor that makes it easy to add these types of CSS rules.

Debugging CSS:

Sometimes, even the smallest mistake in your CSS code can cause your website to break. To avoid this issue, it is important to debug your CSS by testing it on different devices and screen sizes, using different browsers and using an online validator. Elementor also has a built-in debugging tool that lets you quickly identify and fix any issues with your custom CSS.


Customizing your website’s design with Elementor is easier than ever thanks to its built-in tools for adding custom CSS. With a little knowledge and some practice, you can create stunning designs that stand out from the crowd. By following the tips in this blog post, you can take your Elementor skills to the next level and create a website that truly reflects your brand’s unique personality and style.
