Only one week after our beta release of Elementor, we have already reached over four thousand downloads, and over one thousand active users!
We would like to thank everyone who downloaded and used our page builder, especially those who left us such positive reviews on the WordPress plugin page (Oh, you still haven’t rated? Well go ahead then, the review isn’t going to write itself.)
Cool New Elements: Spacer, Image Box and Icon Box
We have some great new features coming up in the next few months. This week, we are releasing the spacer widget, which allows you to add custom spacing between elements. With spacer you don’t have to put much thought into margin, padding and custom positioning. You simply drag the spacer widget and play with the space between elements, without touching coding.
We are also adding an image widget and an icon widget, which are both great for creating a high-end and visual page design, and are especially useful if you want to build a features or services page.
As Seen On The Web
After our success in Product Hunt, as well as our appearance on the WebDesigner Depot and eWebDesign newsletter, two of the biggest designer publications, we are getting more and more attention from the WordPress community.
This is wonderful, because we wish to create a plugin that will keep growing with the help of developers and other contributors.
One of the branches of this growth, the translation of Elementor into other languages, has already started, with Japanese and Hebrew already complete, and German and French translations on the way. Translating Elementor is easily done from the browser itself, and requires no technical data. We invite you to take part in making this plugin multilingual.
Roadmap Coming Up
We want to include you in Elementor’s journey to a million websites, and that is why we are planning to publish a clear roadmap next week, which will explain about our vision, our goals and foreseen milestones up ahead. In the meantime, I want to tell you about the next widgets for Elementor, which are a grid gallery, a carousel and a slideshow.
We’d love to get your suggestions for the next features and widgets you’d like to see added to Elementor. You can send these suggestions to our GitHub project.
