Support » Plugin: Elementor Page Builder » Amazing To Use Along With Great Support

  • This short review is about my recent experience using Elementor Pro (v2.0.3) on Astra Theme (v1.2.7.2) with Astra Pro Plugin (v1.2.3), over the past week.
    I used to use Thrive Themes so I’m a little familiar with this kind of page building.

    Elementor has been simply amazing to work with. Personally, I find it very stable and very forgiving as I often become editing maniac with revisions often above 20.

    1. The revision feature has been great for clambering out of a mess that I got myself in.
    (note: it helps to know the approximate time when things were good before going bad.)

    2. I just finished an active support with Tanvir. I wanted to make the Image Caption the link URL rather than the Image. He showed me how to do it using the “Call to Action Widget” and mentioned that I should add the suggestion to: add a “link” box to the “Caption” so I can have a choice of making either the image or the caption link to an URL with follow/no-follow at their GitHub.

    3. Really impressed how well Elementor works with Thrive Leads. Looking forward to seeing how Elementor works with Thrive Quiz Builder.

    4. I learned a lot about Elementor from Adam’s WPCrafter which helped me to not only understand how to use it but to enjoy using at the same time.

  • Thanks, innerfortune, for your testimonial. – Me too, happy to work with Elementor.

    For my continuing education, can you elaborate a bit on this part of your post:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~SNIP: ……add a “link” box to the “Caption” so I can have a choice of making either the image or the caption link to an URL with follow/no-follow at their GitHub.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    While I am somewhat familiar with GitHub as a file repository, it would help me understand your statement better if you explained how GitHub gets into the picture in the scenario you describe.

    Best regards,

    Peter

    Aloha PeterAloha!
    Ehh! No HuHu Brah! (I graduated from Hilo College many centuries ago) LOL!

    When I use Elementor’s Image Widget you only have the option to make the image the link:

    Edit Widget > Content > under Alignment there’s a Caption box for the image > under the Caption box there’s a “Link to” with drop-down menu (None – Media File – Custom URL) with a box below for the URL. This makes the “Image” a clickable Link NOT the Caption. It would be nice to have an option to make the “Caption” a clickable Link.

    I made this suggestion to Support, they said I should request it at Elementor’s GitHub Feature Request.

    The problem can be solved by using the “Call to action” widget. Here’s the VDO they sent me on how to do this: Making the Caption a ‘Link to’

    I just change the button text “Click Here” to “photo courtesy of ….” Then I go into the styles tab and play around until I get the widget the way I want it and then save it as a template: “Image with Caption Link”. Now, when I want to add Image with Caption Link I a-batta-bing-a-batta-boom add my Image Template.

    Eh! Dis No Ka Oi Brah! \(*<>*)/
    Hope that helps Peter.

    wasn’t clear on the “GitHub” portion of your post, you explained it now!
