ElvUI guide

Found this comprehensive ElvUI guide at Icy Veins. Takes you from how to set it up at the very basic level, all the way through options.

This Wowhead guide is pretty useful.

The Wowhead guide had way more depth and screenshots of all tabs, so if you are not in game and you want to monkey around in it, you can there. I made this to do list, which may or may not be useful for you guys, while I was reading it

something of note guys, if you use addons like bartender 4 or implied target with elvui the vehicle bar will never work.

Not sure why anyone would use Bartender with ElvUI. The action bars from ElvUI are fine. I would not load Bartender and free up memory and reduce load time.
