Support » Plugin: Elementor Website Builder » Does Elementor leaves many leftovers when unistalled?

  • Resolved boppar


    I’m using Elementor on my site right now. I’m considering uninstall Elementor and try using the block editor. I’m aware the site won’t look as good, but I can accept that to get a faster site.

    My question. Let say I create new pages with block editor and then uninstalls Elementor, will there be a lot of leftovers from Elementor?

    Maybe I’ll be better off creating a new site from scratch?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Uninstalling Elementor deletes the option to edit with Elementor. However, any of the content you added with Elementor should remain without the option to continue to editing it with Elementor.

    What I would suggest is to use a third party plugin to create a full backup of your site and give it a go. If you’re not pleased with how the site appears after deleting Elementor, starting from scratch is a different option you can consider.

    Thanks for your answer.

    What I need to know is: If I replace my Elementor-made with pages made in block editor and unistall Elementor. Will there still be any leftovers from Elementor to be cleaned up?

    You can try and back up your website first and try if you are seeing the behavior you are expecting.

    Pages created with Elementor will stay there but it doesn’t guarantee that you will see the same elements, quality, and content as they were when Elementor was installed.

    So please backup your website and try to see.

    Hi @saidaboukhadra and @gilt

    That’s not what I asked about.
    I’m not interested if Elementor-pages will remain or not.

    Let say I do this:
    1. I create new pages with blockeditor.
    2. I delete all old pages created with Elementor.
    3. I uninstall Elementor.

    After I’ve done this, will there be any leftovers from Elementor that need to be cleaned up?

    Because of the absent support it’s better to mark the post as solved.
