Elementor has infiltrated one of my jobs, and I am not a fan for a few reasons.
- Elementor removes the View page link from the editing experience. I understand that the eyeball icon at the bottom loads the preview, and that’s fine. Anytime you save changes a post or page in WordPress, a link appears to view that live page unless you’re using Elementor. It’s almost as if Elementor has no respect for decades of WordPress workflow.
- Elementor doesn’t make its users better web developers. I am a web developer, and naturally the disintermediation of my passion is painful. Elementor doesn’t help you learn how web pages are built. A feature of WYSIWYG editors like WordPress’ can teach HTML if users flip between the visual editor and the underlying code.
I do hate Elementor, but I’m not one to only complain. I’ve also published a code sample to demonstrate How to add an additional webhook to an Elementor Form.
