Support » Plugin: Elementor Website Builder » Bug: Page Title changes automatically after edit(steps to reproduce explained)

  • Resolved Kowsar Hossain


    I see similar topics has been posted already but still no solution given so I’m posting this again with more technical details.

    Nature of the Problem: After i edit any previously created page using Elementor, the page title changes automatically. Thing is it doesn’t happen when i create a new page using Elementor, but only happens when i edit any previously created page. Another thing is it doesn’t happen to all Elementor pages that’s why most of the users actually not seeing it.

    After much investigation I found out that if any custom Elementor-Widget/shortcode contains the function wp_reset_query() and that Elementor-Widget/shortcode is used in any page, then that page is affected by this problem.

    How to reproduce the issue: Create a custom Elementor-Widget which contains the code like this below:

    $args = array();
    $query = new WP_Query( $args );
    <?php if ( $query->have_posts() ) :?>
    	<?php while ( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post();?>
    	<?php endwhile;?>
    <?php endif;?>
    <?php wp_reset_query();?>

    And if you use this Widget in any page then that page will be affected.

    Since this is a valid query and Elementor acts weird with this query, I think its a bug Elementor should fix.

  • I have this issue also.

    A temporal Hack is to check the update setting each time you edit and rewrite the correct title and other setting values, that are unintentionally changed.

    This is beyond the scope of this support

    This is not an individual support request, it’s a bug report where i pointed a problem in your product. I took my time to test and reproduce the bug. Now It’s upto you weather you guys wanna fix it or not, after all it’s a free product anyways.

    As a plugin developer to another plugin developer, honestly I’m disappointed with that response.

    Sorry, this bug has already been fixed

    In which version it’s fixed? I just tested with Elementor version 2.0.13 and this issue still exists

    The latest version. If you still see it, you should raise this in our GitHub since it is a matter of addon compatibility and not support
