Elementary is a drag and drop grid builder plugin. It makes it easy to create grids, masonry and also sliders / carousels layouts. Major features

Pre-built Skins

You can choose from over 7 element skins. Whereas the following skins are only available in the [ Elementary Pro ] ( )version : Airy Card, Laude Card, Laude Park Card, Rio Baixa Card, Lisa Card.

To see all available elements, see : [Elements List] ( )

Content filtering:

With Elementary, you can filter any posts, taxonomies in your website. Also you can filter posts by date, or sort them as ascending or descending based on post type.

Add / Edit fields

You have complete control over the fields in your grid elements. Add ‘title’, ‘excerpt’, ‘price’ or any other field. Editing / deleting fields is just as easy.

Style your grid elements

Using our ‘Atomic Style Editor’, you can change the color, font-size, width, background, etc of element’s atom ( i.e the block of html produced by a field )

Live Preview

With Live Preview, you have an proximate preview of how your grid would look like while you build your grid. You can also drag and drop atoms in the element of the grid.


  • Final output of the grid in the front-end.
  • A screenshot of the slider output.
  • Masonry Grid.1. This screen shot description corresponds to screenshot-1.(png|jpg|jpeg|gif). Note that the screenshot is taken from the /assets directory or the directory that contains the stable readme.txt (tags or trunk). Screenshots in the /assets directory take precedence. For example, /assets/screenshot-1.png would win over /tags/4.3/screenshot-1.png (or jpg, jpeg, gif).


Minimum Requirements

  • WordPress 3.8 or greater
  • PHP version 5.3 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.0 or greater
  • The mod_rewrite Apache module (for permalinks)

Does this plugin work with newest WP version and also older versions?

Yes, this plugin works really fine with WordPress 4.5.2!
It also works great with WP 4.3 – and also should with WP 4.2 – but we only tested extensively with WP 4.4 and 4.3. So you always should run the latest WordPress version for a lot of reasons.

Where can I find Elementary documentation and user guides?

Please refer to the Elementary Documentation.

How do I use the grid that I just created

Go to Dashboard -> Elements. You will see that there is a ‘short-code’ column.
Copy the short-code of the grid you just created and paste it in the post / page you want it to appear. Thats it.
