Elementor just reached yet another milestone. The WordPress page builder plugin has passed the 4M active installs mark. Wow, what a ride! To celebrate, they announced Elementor Free v2.9 Beta with theme style, a revamped lightbox, and custom link attributes.
Theme Style & More
- Theme Style
The first part of their Global styling revolution allows you to globally style your Background, Typography, Buttons, Form Fields, and Images. This new feature will make the life of web designers and developers so much easier.
- Lighbox Revamped
Elementor added some very needed lightbox capabilities to help improve your visual showcasing. You can now easily add captions, a zoom button, and a share button to images and videos in the lightbox mode.
- Custom Link Attributes
You can now add HTML attributes directly to
atags. This really simplifies any attribution you need in your code.
Just a short reminder: Beta versions should only be tested on development or staging sites, not on your live production site.
PS: WunderWP now allows you to save custom Elementor templates in the cloud and reuse them in other projects.
