Support » Plugin: Elementor Page Builder » Edit with elementor issues

  • Hi I have been using elementor on many of my sites here is a new issue that arose. The “edit with elementor” button is no longer at the top of the admin bar nor is it one of the options that it had been under each page and post. Please let me know if something changed or if I have to update a setting.
    2. Also, if I edit a page in the wordpress editor and then elementor and then I make changes to the page that is in the wordpress editor – the elementor version does not get updated and it has the old content. Is this issue going to be resolved?
    thanks

  • You can not go back and forth between editors. I learned this about a week ago. I also found that if I have a text box and make changes in the displayed text on the page rather than the edit box in the left column, those changed are not update, even if I hit the update button.
    Pick one editor and stay with that.
    Per your Elementor buttons disappearing, did you check your plugin area to see if the plugin is still active?

    it would be great if both editors worked together…
    and that I don’t have 2 copies of the same page. Esp. since I cannot use elementor with the podcast player that I am using and I need to update it in the wordpress editor.

    Regarding elementor – I can use it – it is active. But it is just not appearing in the admin bar or under a post or page with the other edit options. I need to open a page to see the elementor option

    thanks for responding.

    Just curious but how do you have 2 copies of the same page?
    How would they display unless the page names were different?

    I learned the hard way, WP has one complete area for the page while Elementor has multiple sections per page, that’s why once you go to Elementor, you should not go back to WP editor.

    I cannot view live both pages. But if I save the elementor page than that one is live and then if I go back in and edit the wp editor page and save then that one is the live one.
    I think Elementor should do what wp bakery did and be more integrated with the wp editor.

    The main problem I see is the orientation flexibility Elementor offers. You define your number of columns and sections on the fly. Personally, this is much easier than adding widgets or changing the template. Considering your plugin only works with WP, why not just leave that page as a WP page and do all your editing in WP? It’s not a perfect solution but it would work until you find a compatible replacement plugin.
    As a caution, I would recreate that one page from scratch with WP and then stay out of Elementor for that page. Going back and forth may create some unknown conflicts.

    I tried to transfer my older WP site to Elementor a couple weeks ago and ran into all sorts of issues. That’s when LogoLogics, a knowledgful and helpful poster, enlightened me about the vast WP/Elementor conflicts. Her advice saved me a lot of time.
    Good Luck

    HI Newbee,

    I cannot view live both pages. But if I save the elementor page than that one is live and then if I go back in and edit the wp editor page and save then that one is the live one.
    I think Elementor should do what wp bakery did and be more integrated with the wp editor.

    As Les stated before, on one same page, stick to wp editor or use Elementor and stick with that choise to avoid trouble and confusion.

    I see the confusion has already begun, because you are under the impression that you are creating two different pages on the same page, let me assure you, you are not.

    Just start clean on that page ( remove all code that you can check while clicking on the “text” tab in WP default editor, and then create that page with default editor OR Elementor, not both.

    I understand this – but I would like to use elementor for a page where I am also using smart podcast player which I can only set up the short code while using the wordpress editor – so it would be nice for the possibility to interchange between the 2. So in this case I am using the wp editor and not elementor and I used css and coded in divs for all the items that I would have used elementor for.

    newbee, I may be misunderstanding but have you tried the “Short Code” element in Elementor.
    I use this for things like sliders and haven’t had any issues. I was going to try your plugin but I see it’s a paid version.
