    Hi,

    I really, really wish there was a way to turn off the stupid auto-save feature that Elementor does. I do not want it to auto-save… often, if I make a mistake while working on a back-end editor, all I need to do is close the editor, and my mistake is gone.

    Having Elementor autosave EVERY little thing is really annoying. I can’t tell you how many times I have done something and did not want Elementor to save that change.

    Hi,

    This is the editor and WP default action so you won’t lose anything.

    We do offer a history rollback, if you are on the same page and want to go back to the starting point, before you exit the page, click on the little arrow circle at the bottom of the widget panel and click on the point you want to go back to.

    I will add this as a feature request to have a disable autosave button.

    Yes that would be great, and that’s all that is needed, just a button in the settings to turn off auto-save. That would be a huge help and solve a lot of the issues I face due to the auto-save feature. Plus, giving people options is so much better than forcing everyone to use your auto-save feature.

    Please let me know if there will be a link to the feature request so I can vote on it, thank you.

    Hi,

    Our feature requests are not by voting, we wish to add them all but it might take a bit of time, you can keep an eye on our changelog to see new features –

    I will close this ticket, for now, please do open a new one if you need any further assistance in the future!

    I see this was a recent post so glad to see something might happen. I have spent the last 6 months trying to rebuild my website as carefully as possible to keep a clean database. I do not like the idea of every little action creating a new database data entry bumping the post id number. In some places that number is relevant and I don’t want to see crazy high numbers that increase over the life of the website. I recently moved my website to a live server and have the default autosave and revisions code in my config set to disable them. I just noticed editing elementor templates that it is still creating autosave data entries in the database. As for the original poster, some of us build the design offline and then put the content on the live version and don’t need the autosave or revisions. Make sure people know when there is a disable option please, took me a while to find out there was a disable option for that admin top bar.

    Hi,

    So where am I supposed to go and vote on this?

    This is seriously the worst feature ever created. I don’t understand how this is still a thing.
