Of course, Elmer's DOES make excellent carpenter's wood glue. It's just that the "glue-all" is made for many different applications such as paper, ceramic, kid's school projects, etc.

the key thing to realize is that different adhesives are for different applications

for wood to wood applications i use typical yellow carpenters wood glue, be it lepages, titebond 2 or gorillas yellow glue. this should be fine for your project. just be sure to let the glue fully set up before re-mounting your doors

if im gluing two different types of materials such as wood to concrete i use pl premium or lumberlock, for plastics and vinyl i use a siding caulking or silicone for exterior use or for small peices of plastic for interior hot melt glue works well

if it were me, id fill the hole with fiberglass rather than any wood. But use longer screws, or its going to happen again

Titebond is the best for dowelling. I have tried most of them (Gorilla/Carpenters/3M; etc) and like the consensus above Titebond II or III (Waterproof) works everytime on every project. If you need gapfill drill and dowel or use a mixture of Titebond and sawdust then drill a pilot hole for your screw after it dries. Sounds like you were getting good advice. Good luck.
