Update Elementor and Elementor Pro

Last Update: February 11, 2024

Elementor’s developers continually work to improve both the free core version of Elementor as well as Elementor Pro. New features, bug fixes, and security hardening will always be a priority. To take advantage of these changes requires updating your Elementor plugin(s). Learn how to safely update Elementor by following these instructions.

It is important to keep both the Elementor and Elementor Pro plugins up-to-date. Updating one without updating the other can cause your site to break.

When to Update

Notifications appear in WordPress Admin when new versions of WordPress or any plugins, including Elementor or Elementor Pro, are available.
