Cut the distractions and focus on what matters

Does NOT require Elementor PRO.

EleBuilder does not require Elementor PRO to be installed. Our PRO version available to subscribers does if you wish to use the custom skins functionality.

Focused on design experience and ease of use

We rebuilt our UI over and over because we wanted users to enjoy using the plugin and not get frustrated with a user interface that’s clunky and unresponsive.

Combining Controls

Do you have one or more elements that could use share its value from a single control? Yes you can! Imagine you want to change the colour of your heading, text and button by using only one colour control? Drag and drop to combine controls and you’re set.

Undo / Redo & Revision History.

Our builder is 100% compatible with the Document History API of Elementor, so if you make a mistake, simply undo (CMT/CTRL+Z). Changed your mind? That’s cool too, you can go back and Redo! (CMD/CTRL+SHIFT+Z).

Can I use this with third party widgets

Yes. Only under very specific circumstances which are extremely hard to test due to the amount of third party widgets out there should you have any issues. Feel free to get in touch we are always looking for ways to improve and make it more compatible with other extensions.

Do I need Elementor PRO?

No, the builder is fully compatible with Elementor alone.

I tried several times to use this plugin as I wanted a way to create my own widgets in Elementor. Unfortunately, each time I Activated the plugin it crashes the website ( White Screen of Death) You then have to go onto the server (luckily I have access), and rename the plugin to .bak so it gives you website admin access back. Then Delete the Plugin from the Server plugins folder. I didn’t purchase this plugin because I could not get it to work 🙁

This plugin is too old and not worth installation and paying for the pro version.

As soon as you activate this plugin it crashes your entire website and you cannot log in to Admin. I had to deactivate it via the Server by removing the plugin manually. Very disappointing !!

I really wanted this to work, as it would add a lot of value for me. But….. When installing the plugin, as soon as you click ‘Activate’ it kills the entire website. You cannot access the WP Admin site or anything else. I had to contact my host to fix the issue. The error from the logs is: Fatal error: Access level to EWBPro\Modules\Custom_Widget\Source_EWB::get_current_tab_group() must be public (as in class Elementor\TemplateLibrary\Source_Local) in /var/www/wptbox/wp-content/plugins/elebuilder-pro/includes/custom-widget/source.php on line 469 I tried to report this to support, so I logged into my EleBuilder account. Clicking on the support link shows a blank page. Trying to perform any other operation in account results in the same thing: blank page. Digging further, the page has heaps of Javascript and other errors. So, I used the ‘Contact Us’ on the main website. Apparently my message was successfully submitted. Well that was about 4 days ago. No reply yet. To start the trial you need to supply your credit card details. Now, I want to cancel. But, the account page doesn’t work. Can’t contact support. This is a very bad experience. Warning: do not install this plugin, no matter how enticing it looks. Take a look at the messages in the support threads: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/widget-builder-for-elementor/

I was on the lookout to create my own custom post widget in elementor and whenever I activated this plugin I get the „There has been a critical error on your website“ message. And then I tried this again on a fresh Wordpress install and received the same message. And then finally I deactivated this plugin through cpanel by renaming the folder (because my admin was inaccessible due to the error). And guess what, my website reverted back to normal. I hope you guys fix this and then I will edit my review. This has potential.
