Something new is about to arrive. In the coming weeks, we will gradually introduce Elementor 2.0. Each release will focus on solving a substantial WordPress pain - felt by users, yet never been dealt with before
Finally, everything inside your WordPress website will be within reach. You’ll be able to visually & easily design it all the Elementor way: blocks, headers, footers, dynamic content, single posts, archive pages, search results pages, 404 pages, and more.
Elementor launched 20 months ago, and in that time we established it as the number #1 solution for page building.
Now, It’s time to go beyond the page level.
I’d like to go over our upcoming roadmap, and describe just how impactful Elementor 2.0 is going to be on your workflow.
Roadmap Up Ahead
As stated, Elementor 2.0 is deliberately not going to be launched all at once. Unveiling each new feature step by step will help you get used to them one at a time.
This method allows us to simultaneously work on a number of features, releasing each one only after it has been fully tried, tested, and is ready to be delivered. This is an effective and more stable process, one that has served us well since launch.
Next week, we will release the first Elementor 2.0 beta – the Blocks feature. Blocks are a new set of pre-designed layouts that will enable you to quickly mix and match different Section designs, generating your websites and landing pages faster than ever before.
Then, next month, we will release the much awaited Header & Footer feature, allowing you to design your entire page, top to bottom, including the header and footer area, all using Elementor. This includes designing your menu, logo and search bar; solves a huge ache of theme users that are stuck with a certain theme’s header or footer design.
Following this release other goodies are coming:
- The ability to create single posts and archive pages
- Customization of your search results and 404 pages
- Powerful design control for WooCommerce shops, product pages and other eCommerce pages
- Extensive developer support, offering new possibilities for plugin and theme developers who extend Elementor
- New resources center for Elementor developers, with extensive guides and tutorials on how to create Elementor extensions
- A brand-new process igniting dynamic content creation that will blow your mind, including an extensive integration of Advanced Custom Fields & Toolset
The new groundbreaking features won’t end there. This is a new path, and it is going to make your work a whole lot easier.
Compatibility with WordPress 5.0
A recurring question we get is how well will Elementor integrate with Gutenberg. Our team is closely monitoring the Gutenberg project, and it seems like a well-worth and much-needed visual text editor.
The new version of Elementor will be completely compatible with Gutenberg, and we are now considering a variety of ways to connect the new WordPress editor with Elementor. Once it’s out, you will be able to write your post in Gutenberg, then design it with Elementor.
With over 500,000 active installs and counting, now it’s clear more than ever – Elementor is a must-have tool for web designers. Once the upcoming features are released, Elementor will become an even more powerful designer tool, capable of creating the entire website dynamically, saving tons of time on each project.
Theme Builder is Part of Your Package
After Elementor 2.0 is released, we are going to bundle all the theme builder parts inside the existing Pro version, so you won’t need to buy any other plugin.
We don’t view the extended abilities as a ‘nice to have’ project. It’s part of the Pro package that every Elementor user will apply in their daily workflow.
It’s been several months since we began constructing features that enable dynamic content design. I can promise you that once you use them, you won’t be able to go back to the previous static way.
The Best is Gonna' Get a Whole Lot Better
With Elementor 2.0 coming up, there has never been a better time to upgrade to Pro. We’d love to get your comments, questions and feedback as always.
