Latest Elementor News

ThemeIsle’s page builder friendly Neve theme version 2.9 was released with several new features.  The big feature is the new global color palette.  You can choose between a light and a dark color palette or create your own and apply it sitewide.  All of the color settings in the Customizer are applied sitewide and also carried over into the Gutenberg editor.  Neve also carries the palette into the Elementor editor making it the second theme to close the loop and make global colors truly global.  The new Neve WooCommerce extension also added two new WooCommerce checkout layouts.  ThemeIsle also upgraded the template library so that its cloud now allows users with the Agency license to upload their own templates for use on other sites.

Happy Addons recently expanded it’s template library and released 34 new unique page templates.   There were fourteen templates added for the free plugin and 20 page templates added for the pro version.

The 15th template kit dropped with a dance studio focus.  The templates are designed to be simple, but elegant and eye-catching.  The minimalistic palette of greyish beige, white and black helps make the photos standout and makes this kit easily adaptable.  There is a home page, a scheduling page and a popup included.

The Premium Addons for Elementor plugin has just had a major update, now at version 4.  They have added a Features tab to the plugin admin dashboard where you can enable or disable any of the widgets and features.  I am happy to see this added as I think it is a sign of a good addon.  They also added a Lottie enabled advanced list widget, which is an artistic list option with icons and the option for a Lottie animation.

The Master Addons for Elementor plugin recently added two new widgets:  a hotspot widget and a timeline widget.  I thought the timeline widget might pull and display posts by date, but instead it is a manual choice of content to display vertically along a central trunk.

The Kadence theme achieved a first.  It is (so far) the only theme to integrate with Elementor’s global color palette.  There is new a two way sync between the Kadence theme Customizer and Elementor that keeps color choices in sync.  The colors are not only global, but also linked, so that change in the palette is reflected wherever that global color was used, including in Elementor content.   Kadence Starter Sites also supports this and is adding Elementor starter content.

The Plus Addons free and pro versions used to be independent of each other.  They have changed this so that the free version must be present when activating the pro version.  From a user perspective I like only having one, instead of two, plugins installed.  However, from a programmer point of view it makes sense not to duplicate and support all of the code in two plugins.

In addition to regular fixes and tweaks, the Crocoblock JetElements plugin saw the addition of a Line Chart widget and support for native lazy loading of images.  JetEngine received a number of small improvements, including the ability to use dynamic data in form conditions and more options for notification on form submissions.

The pro version of Essential Addons got support for right to left language translations and Dynamic Tag / Advanced Custom Field support was added for most widgets. I love to see support for dynamic data as it allows for the use of the widgets in theme templates.

There was also a huge update for HappyAddons Pro.  There were a slew of new widgets for WooCommerce:  a Product Grid widget, Product Carrousel widget, Product Category Grid widget, and Product Category widget.  There were also new Post Grid, Sticky Video, and Author List widgets added.  There was a new extension added for cross site copy and paste of a full page.

HappyAddons released a new version of their free plugin with several new features.  The plugin now offers full page predesigned templates, initially 20, and a number of new line icons.  They also added a social share widget and a horizontal timeline widget.
