This beta update aims to fix some Elementor problems that we regularly face. If you use Elementor on a daily basis, you’ll agree that the following features are a necessity for us.

1. Element Manager (Free Version)

Say hello to the Element Manager, your new sidekick in the widget world. This feature provides an in-depth look at all installed widgets on your site, giving you the reins to personalize your widget panel. Here’s what you can do with it:

  • Gain insights into all installed widgets on your site.
  • Disable unused widgets to create a simplified and efficient widget panel.
  • Search for specific widgets by name, filter by plugin (Elementor or Elementor Pro), or usage frequency.
  • Exercise care when disabling widgets, utilizing the “Scan Usage” feature to avoid deactivating widgets in use.

Tired of a cluttered workspace? Now you have the power to deactivate unused widgets, resulting in a leaner and faster Editor loading time. It’s like having a turbo boost for your creative workflow.

2. Performance Improvements (Free Version)

Your site’s speed just got a significant upgrade. Time To First Byte (TTFB) now sees an improvement of 3-5% on average. This isn’t just a tweak; it’s a speed revolution, ensuring your audience gets a seamless experience.

Control Rendering

Say goodbye to server lag. Elementor 3.18 Beta update introduces changes in the control rendering process, optimizing the server’s computational time. Your widgets load smoother, your site performs better – it’s all about control.

3. Accessibility Improvements (Free Version)

Header Tags Control

Take charge of your website’s accessibility with the ability to control HTML tags of headers in the Video Playlist Widget. It’s not just about design; it’s about making your content inclusive to everyone.

Progress Bar Enhancement

Every detail matters. The Progress Bar Widget now comes with an “id” tag to each title, making it a breeze for screen readers to announce them. Elementor 3.18 Beta update doesn’t just build websites; it builds experiences.

4. Multi-Select in the Taxonomy Filter (Pro Version)

Customization Options

It’s not just about the message; it’s about how it looks. Control alignment, color, and typography to match your brand. The empty state isn’t a roadblock; it’s an opportunity to showcase your creativity.

6. Receive Files as Attachments in Forms (Pro Version)

File Handling

Uploading files through forms just got a serious upgrade. Instead of clogging your server space, the Elementor 3.18 Beta update allows you to receive these files as email attachments. It’s about organization and efficiency – your inbox just became a file cabinet.

Space Optimization

No more wrestling with server space issues. By choosing to receive files as attachments, you’re optimizing your space and ensuring smoother operations.
