# Advanced Example

Elementor Core Basic

For a more advanced use-case, we'll replace static links with core WordPress functions, linking to the WordPress dashboard settings panels.

# Folder Structure

The addon will have two files. One file for the finder category and the other main file to register the class.

elementor-finder-wordpress-settings/
|
├─ finder/
|  └─ wordpress-settings.php
