Support » Plugin: Elementor Website Builder » Elementor Editor Stuck on Loading Screen

  • Resolved pepperink



    I am not a web designer, I am an just an illustrator, but with a number of self-taught years of running my own WordPress site. Elementor has been great, up until todays update. All of a sudden, I try to edit any pages and it just stays stuck on the loading screen.

    I have tried turning off ALL plugins – did not fix the issue

    I have tried running it on the twenty sixteen theme with all other plugins off – did not fix the issue

    I have updated the MEMORY LIMIT to 256MB – did not fix the issue.

    Currently running my test site with the ASTRA theme. Theme, Elementor Plugin, and WordPress are all at current versions.

    Here is the debug message from my system info:

    You will notice I am getting TWO debug errors, however these seem to be above my skill level and I am not sure what they are telling me.

    I am hoping there is a bug in the newest update, and there will be a revised update in the next day or so…. but just in case not….ANY HELP PLEASE? Thank you in advance.

  • An update to both Elementor 2.1.4. and Elementor Pro 1.9.5 helped me with this problem.



    I’m dealing with the same issue. Total amateur building a website for my school… it was going so smoothly at first with Elementor and now I can’t get it to load at all. I’ve tried every browser and even a variety of computers.

    This helped me: dashboard/elementor/settings/advanced/Switch Editor Loader Method

    Worth a try, let us know if it worked?



    I have come across this problem today (Wednesday). It worked fine on Monday. Updating Elementor and deactivating other plugins has made no difference. I’ve not updated or installed any new plugins since Monday anyway :). Unfortunately the dashboard/elementor/settings/advanced/Switch Editor fix mentioned above made no difference.

    I don’t have pro, just standard.

    I’m not a developer and indeed don’t have any webdevelopment experience at all. All jargon to me.

    Any thoughts?

    @peteraloha method worked for me. Thanks buddy.


    Thanks peteraloha, It worked. I hope Next steo is to try loading templates.

    On my pages Elementor is loading and loading, can’t edit anything. I can see error message

    RangeError: Max value for this device is out of range. at – 2:189687 2018-09-19 09:36 +00:00

    Any idea?

    Hello guyz, Hope everyone is not like me. 3 working day my elementor is massed up with this freezing Elementor loading

    Hi @mrsinghr,

    Can you please contact our tech support?
    It sounds like an Elementor Pro related issue.



    Elementor is freezing when attempting to upload new .json files to the library, which seems to be related to a recent update.

    Loading anything else (pre-existing templates, blocks, and pages) seems fine.

    What is the workaround?

    Elementor version: 2.2.5

    Hi folks,

    I have wasted a whole day to figure that crazy mess-up (completely messed up my website).

    And finally found a temporary solution to make the site work again and also continue using with the last version of Elementor.

    The problem was (and still) a conflict between Elementor and Chrome. I don’t know why it happens but I hope to have time to figure it out when I will have some spare time…

    Anyway, what worked for me is:
    1. Downloading Microsoft Explorer Edge – Elementor working just fine (but I personally prefer Chrome).
    2. Because I am using Cloudflare I faced issue with the permalinks and found a solution on the forums – just go to settings-general and add www (after the http:// or https://) to your WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL).
    3. Now refresh your website caching and purge the caching on Cloudflare site for your website.
    4. Preview your website on all platforms and fix bugs (if you found some).

    That’s it hope I manage to help someone with that.

    Perhaps this will help someone: After spending several hours and doing all of the above and more without success, I realised that the problem was simply that I had the index.htm file from my old site in the directory. When I got rid of that, Elementor loaded fine.

    It’s definitely a chrome thing. Everything was fine yesterday, today I just get a blank page when elementor loads up. Trying it in Firefox makes it work fine.
