Support » Plugin: WP2Static » Elementor publishing issues

  • Just trying this out to publish static HTML landing page out of a wordpress site I have build based on Bedrock and using Elementor Page Builder.

    Everything appears to work fine, however I have issues with the way that WP2Static handles the background-image CSS for sections that are created in Elementor.

    It appears though the crawler gets confused when checking out the img url location for the image as it is coming from the elementor css file which is ‘buried’ into the uploads folder. So the actual background image never shows.

    However, I did come up with a workaround to provide a custom ID property to the elementor section and then insert some custom CSS via the customizer. Not really ideal, but does the job. @leon is there any plans in the works to try and address this issue? I am attempting to make a simple landing page template for marketers to use and it will publish static HTML content to our production site (using hooks to BitBucket or GitLab). I’m very certain that this workaround will give them a major headache in the workflow.

  • Are you using Version 6.6.21? I had similar problems with an older version.

    No I am using latest version (6.6.7). I did notice the issue in older version several months ago when I first tested this plugin out on my blog though (but I put it down to the complexity of my blog).

    @dogsbreath totally understand what you mean now. I was using composer and wp packagist to grab the latest version from the wordpress.org directory and did not realise that there is more recent version in github.

    Will have to track it as a separate custom plugin in my workflow then 😉 and see if it resolves this issue. @leon good move to get rid of the FTP option – I was looking at it and had serious concerns about the security of the deployment feature.

    I did swap out the latest version of the plugin from Github. Did have some promising results actually! The hero header background I was having issues, came through without having to use all the custom CSS. Be great when it can be made an official update on wordpress.org!
