Install the Envato Elements Plugin
The first step is to install and configure the Envato Elements Plugin. You can download and install the plugin from the official WordPress repository.
To install the plugin, go to Plugins > Add New > and search for the Envato Elements Plugin.
Please ensure you are installing the official plugin listing Envato as the author. (There might be several other similar named plugins in your search results).
Configure the Envato Elements Plugin
You will need to enter your email address and agree to their terms and conditions before you can access the free templates.
Similar to many other plugins, they are tracking the domain where the plugin is used so that they can ensure it complies with their terms set out for free usage.
You should comply with their terms if you are just using it for personal purposes. If you are not selling the free templates or offering them in some automated website builder services to your clients, you should be fine.
Envato Elements Subscription For Pro Templates
If you intend to use the pro templates and other features such as stock photos, you will need to sign up for their subscription plans (see Envato Elements Coupons here).
Some of the best Elementor Templates Kits offered by the plugin are for subscribed members only and I highly recommend signing up for it. Not only you get access to pro Elementor templates and temple kits, but Envato Elements will also have your entire design needs covered.
Once you become Envato Elements subscriber, you can go to the settings page ( Elements > Settings) and enter the licence code to configure the plugin.

Strategic Offering from Envato?
This is a very good strategic offer from Envato. I guess they are offering free templates initially as they want to have a substantial userbase for the plugin that would then make it easier for them to promote the core Envato Elements subscription and other products.
The plugin also aligns with their services, most importantly with Envato Elements itself, which offers similar themes and templates as part of their subscription. I wouldn’t be surprised to see many other premium offerings from Envato Elements within the plugin soon.
Either way, the plugin is an excellent offering from Envato that fulfils the design need of growing page-builder users in the WordPress community.
