Support » Plugin: Elementor Page Builder » Loading glitch for full-width stretched sections

  • Resolved anjanphukan



    Elementor is a great page builder plugin. But it seems like the full-width stretched sections takes fractions of a second to load in it. It first shows white spaces on either side of the section and then fills the full width of that.

    I have tried it with many themes like OceanWP, Astra, etc. Some of the examples are, Example 2, Example 1, Example 3.

    Is there any way to fix this issue?

    Use Elementor Canvas



    Thanks, but sorry that doesn’t help because it removes the site’s header and footer.



    I have the same problem and i’ve been googling around for some time now. Seems to be a lot of people having the same problem but no one comes with a solution sadly.

    Hi @greken91
    The stretch section is a JavaScript based feature.
    The stretch section JavaScript only starts running once the page is finished loading.
    The heavier page you have, the longer time it’ll take for it to run.
    Hope this helps!


    Can it not be fixed somehow? Many of clients complaint for this issue.

    Hello, agreed. Its very annoying 🙁
    Anyone found a workaround?

    @lisaelementor thank you for you reply, sadly this doesnt help one bit, this is a big deal for my clients and this problem is forcing me to look for another plugin since its not professional at all when the website behaves like this.

    Has anyone found a solution? 75% of my pages use a stretch header image and the flickering looks horrible

    I encountered this problem before and found a solution.
    1. Make sure that you are set to full width on Elementor page layout.
    2. On the WP dashboard, go to your page and click on Edit.
    3. On the right side, you will see page attributes.
    4. Change the Template dropdown to default or Elementor Full width.

    This should do the trick. Check this tree service website for reference.

    My problem right now is that this happens on my Header, where it stretches out and goes back to it’s original size. Maybe you guys have a solution for this.

    Hope you can help me out. Thank you



    I have the same issue using Generate Press Theme, latest WP and Elementor. It happens in empty pages, there is no huge content loading before the full-width javascript loads. Still the image loads with white space left and right and then suddenly resizes to full width (1920 resolution). The image is even wider than the content box with before resizing itself to full-width. It looks terrible.

    The suggestion of jedp621 didn’t help. My page is set to Elementor Full width, the image still resizes after loading.
