I want to be able to style the category page and the single post page without buying Elementor pro. We're using template Gridlabs with elementor.

Are there any great tutorials out there? Or is there a plugin that will allow me to do this easily? Thanks.

Without seeing what options gridlabs has, it is hard to give an exact answer. Themes typically have their own customization options. If that does not work, then you can add custom css to your child theme.

Yeah, it has zero. I may have to go with Elementor pro.

Yes, if you started with it and like it, it is worth the price.  There is a small learning curve but when you couple it with a vanilla theme, it is very easy to customize your front end. I have used other builders and it took me some time but I do like it and ended up buying the multi site version.

I was used to Divi, and I really didn't like Elementor when I started. But I knew it was just because I needed to climb that learning curve. It's ok, I'm getting used to it. I really prefer working with code. I like building bootstrap sites. This drag and drop is for the birds. :)

I agree, it is frustrating to get something simple done that you know you can just code vs jump through hoops to  make it drag and drop. Also the fact you are comfortable with BS.  But it is worth it to embrace it and use the responsive tools found in elementor. It is well supported. Using WP is a different animal than making our own sites.
