    Hi, thanks for posting. I ran a test this morning with the Button widget and couldn’t replicate the problem. Is there a particular widget that is causing the problem? What does the conflict look like? Have you perhaps had a chance to test with only Elementor and the Widgets Bundle activated?

    OK; I did not express myself clearly. At one time there were updates of Elementor and SiteOrigin and Gutenberg. I have the site with all kinds of pages (I know, this is not standard, but yes I have …). After update – everything crashed. SiteOrigin pages could not be edited properly and some of the Elementor pages were not properly displayed. First I switched off Gutenberg and then SiteOrigin pages started working :-). Deactivation of Gutenberg is not a problem. You can live with it.
    But some of the Elementor pages still did not display correctly (exapmple in the link). When I deactivated SiteOrigin, the Elementor pages began to display correctly.There is no doubt, therefore, that SiteOrigin harms Elementor.
    If this conflict is to be persistent (forever), it means that it will no longer be able to use two page builders plugins on one site. We have to choose the one…

    Thanks for the update 🙂

    We currently aren’t able to replicate this issue on our local or live testing servers. Elementor works normally side by side with Page Builder in the same install.

    There are several ways you could troubleshoot the problem. The most basic method would be:

    * Temporarily deactivate all plugins except for Elementor, Page Builder and Widgets Bundle.
    * Does the issue persist with this configuration?
    * If the problem persists, temporarily switch to a default theme like Twenty Seventeen and also deactivate all plugins except for Elementor, Page Builder and Widgets Bundle. Does the issue persist?

    I found the real culprit – it’s the Autoptimize plugin (or its settings); in any case, after it is turned off, Elementor and SiteOrigin can co-exist together; thanks

    Could be due to CSS or JS optimization, try to identify which one by disabling (and re-enabling) CSS optimization and then JS optimization. once you know that you’ll have to look into which CSS- or JS-file to exclude from optimization to fix.

    AO’s FAQ has more info on troubleshooting and how to exclude.

    hope this helps,

    Super, glad to hear you’re making progress. Please, try confirming the conflict by temporarily deactivating all plugins except for Autoptimize, Page Builder by SiteOrigin and Elementor. That’ll confirm the conflict. If the problem persists then try Frank’s advice above.

    Frank, thanks for hopping on here, always appreciated 🙂
