Element Manager

Last Update: January 10, 2024

Elementor offers web creators a wide range of elements, allowing them enormous flexibility in web design. However, some creators may prefer to reduce the number of elements available in the Editor in order to speed up load times and reduce clutter.

Disable Elementor elements

  1. Go to WP Admin.

  3. (Recommended) Click one of the Show buttons to see which elements are used on your site and how many times they are being used. 
  4. Toggle elements off and they will not appear in Editor. 
    If you disable elements that you used to build the site, they will no longer work and could even break your site.

    For more details about determining which elements to disable, see Filter the elements below.
