• Hello and Merry Christmas !

    I’ve been using “Elementor free” for quite some time.
    With the updates, no major issue and I’ve been really happy to edit my site with this marvelous plugin.

    Suddenly, out of no modifications in my WordPress installation, the plugin behavior changed unexpectedly.

    I can’t edit, it keeps on loading.

    I’ve done all the workarounds provided here to debug the plugin and failed.

    My system info might shows you that this change of behavior is due to the plugin itself and from no other source, neither WordPress or my host server which is Bluehost.

    Switching back to WordPress default themes really gave some extra access to Elementor, but not all access, nor every time I tried to edit my site I succeeded.

    Wouldn’t like to keep on switching between themes because as I mentioned, after no plugin inclusion and/or modification the plugin stopped work as expected.

    Have full access to all functions possible including cpanel and so on and already made the necessary tweakings to try to solve this bug.

    Also my theme is updated and has been running with Elementor since I first used it.

    I think the plugin needs an update.

    I really appreciate you time and support.

    There is an existing issue with TinyMCE Plugin and Elementor, which might not have been resolved as of yet. Someone has already disclosed that while replying to my query @1987ronnie.

    Try deactivating TinyMCE and let us know!

    Nope !

    Either a blank page with the ?elementor in the address bar or as I update the page, plugin keeps on loading



    I’ve done all the workarounds provided here to debug the plugin and failed.

    Did you try deactivating ALL plugins EXCEPT Elementor?
    I had the same “loading forever” issue this morning after I updated to 1.0.7 from 1.0.6. I initially thought that it was the update as I had successfully made an edit to one of the pages prior to running the Elementor update. After the update, I went to make another change and there was the “loading” issue.

    However, the VERY first thing I did was deactivate ALL plugins EXCEPT Elementor and sure enough, it works 🙂 So, one by one I re-activated them, trying the edit after each one. And lo and behold, I found the culprit. It was a plugin where you can add your own PHP snippets and it was only ONE of the three snippets that was causing the problem. Removed that snippet, reactivated that plugin and everything is running as it should 🙂

    Yes I did before 3 times with different tweakings, blank page.

    Will try to even deactivate “suspicious plugins” not so important as Elementor in my configuration and let you know.

    Even thou it was functioning as normal with all the actual plugins.

    Best regards,

    Just found a way.

    Roll back, recent backup with my WordPress installation when Elementor shows the update option to 1.07

    Although it was working fine with this latest update, it seems that the bug pop up after sometime with this changing log.

    At the moment I’m leaving Elementor with 1.06 as it opened the plugin like a charm.

    Would be great if the plugin’s developers could provide a download to 1.06 as I don’t have it anymore in my disk.

    So would be easier to continue updating the plugin and if needed, roll back.

    Sorry for the topic title as “update…and stuff”

    I didn’t notice the frequency of this recent update, but something in 1.07 went wrong in the long run with my configuration.

    Thanks a lot !


    Hi Rick,

    When you said …

    Will try to even deactivate “suspicious plugins”

    … does that mean that you did not deactivate ALL plugins except Elementor? By ALl I mean that the ONLY one active should be Elementor 🙂 If you do not do it this way, then it is almost impossible to determine if it is the configuration of your installation or the Elementor plugin. As I mentioned in my case it was a plugin (actually, the contents within it).

    Anyway, here is a link to all the versions:

    Hi Lyle,

    After the tip of deactivating the plugins, instead I did restore my installation back to 3 days ago.

    So it worked with 1.06, because in my dashboard it is alerting me to update to 1.07.

    Before the bug, the site was already running Elementor 1.07 with no issues.

    About the deactivation of the plugins, yes I’ve done it twice or even 3 times with no luck.

    Possibly, some of the contents of the plugin between these last days was the problem, cannot tell.

    Yes, I just updated the plugin from 1.06 to 1.08 and had no issues until now.

    Thanks a lot for your attention.

    Elementor 1.09 running normally within my plugins configuration and overall installation.

    Hello !

    Elementor has been running great since the last updates.

    Here is running fine. Thanks!

    I’m not an expert in dealing with coding, but I was wondering if is possible to inject php code into a widget within Elementor.

    Does the Pro version of Elementor provides this feature?

    Cheers !
