Support » Plugin: Elementor Website Builder » EXIT TO DASHBOARD from Elementor editing only goes to WordPress

  • This only began after transfer of site to new host (Hostgator to BlueHost) and change of site URL. I imagine the transfer and db changes have caused this. Problem: Subsequent to Elementor editing on ANY page, and clicking on the Elementor ‘EXIT TO DASHBOARD’ at the bottom of the Elementor panel after clicking the 3-bars, the focus is taken to the WordPress edit page instead of the WordPress Dashboard. WordPress, Elementor and plugins all current.

    Apparently Elementor’s product development strategy now includes Jedi mind tricks.

    “This isn’t the dashboard you’re looking for.” (waves hand hoping we’ll forget ‘Exit to Dashboard’ used to go to the dashboard)

    Frankly, that’s a wacky response on their part.

    Here’s some advice, Elementor. When your users complain a feature has disappeared or is confusing, you shouldn’t respond with, “No, you’re wrong. It was always meant to be this confusing and not do what it says!”

    That’s ridiculous. From my perspective, you have two better options for handling this:

    1) Don’t call the button “Exit to Dashboard” if it’s not going to actually going to exit to the dashboard. That’s “UX 101” stuff right there. Call it “Close Elementor” or something less confusing.

    2) Fix the button to actually do what it says and what your users are telling you they want (since exiting to the WordPress editor is pointless).

    Add to your template ‘functions.php’ file. Not my fix but it works if anyone is still interested:

    function my_exit_to_dashboard(){
    $url=admin_url();
    return $url;
    }
    add_filter(‘elementor/document/urls/exit_to_dashboard’ , ‘my_exit_to_dashboard’);

    Here’s some code that works perfectly (add to child functions.php file):

    function my_exit_to_dashboard(){
    $url=admin_url();
    return $url;
    }
    add_filter(‘elementor/document/urls/exit_to_dashboard’ , ‘my_exit_to_dashboard’);
