Learn how to do that easily with this step by step guide.
Step 1: Go to Your Page
Obviously, the absolute first thing you need to do is to promptly go to the page you need to apply the Elementor templates that you’ve downloaded. Go to your WordPress dashboard, click ‘Pages’ and afterward click ‘All Pages’.
Look down to the page that you need to apply the Elementor template and afterward click ‘edit’.
Step 2: Edit With Elementor
After opening, you should promptly see a button ‘Edit With Elementor’. Clicking that would lead you to the Elementor Visual Editor.
Step 3: Elementor Template Library
Presently that you’re now on the Elementor Visual Editor, you’ll see a section with a plus symbol and a folder symbol on your page. Click the folder symbol.
An interface will pop up where you would see a huge amount of ‘Blocks’ and ‘Page’ templates effectively accessible to you. You didn’t have to download one in any case!
Step 4: Importing Your Template
Obviously, you’re here on the grounds that you need to upload your desired and preferred template! On the interface of your template library, find the upload symbol at the top (the up arrow symbol) and click it.
This will prompt you to the import template panel.
If your using Windows, go the folder of your downloaded Template file and drag it to this section. Always note that your file must be either a JSON or a ZIP file. Nothing more, nothing less.
Or you can click the ‘Select File’ instead for a much more direct way.
NOTE: In case the zip file you downloaded produces an error, you can try extracting it and upload the JSON (.json) files each, especially if the contents of the zip file are in a folder or contain non-JSON files (like .doc, .txt, .css, fonts, etc).
Step 5: Final Steps
Wait for a few seconds (depending on your Internet speed of course), and after the loading has finished, go to the ‘My Templates’ tab and now scroll to the very bottom to see the Elementor templates you’ve just uploaded. Their names should be obvious!
Click ‘Insert’ button and that template will immediately be imported to your Elementor Visual Editor.
