    One can disappointed by this article that I thought relevant to the functionality of this plugin and that is actually an incentive to download it! And nothing more! Too bad!

    Hi, TaxyDriver. I understand what you mean, thank you for that remark...

    However, I would like to clarify:

    1 – The theme of this article is "how to install Elementor Pro on its site? » and not "how to use Elementor Pro? ». It is therefore certainly for this reason that you did not find what you were looking for 😉

    2 – today, this blog has only 5 days and counts only 5 articles. It’s really little, but other articles will be published regularly and of course you’ll find tons of resources to help users use Elementor. Many tutos are in anticipation. Each widget of Elementor will be passed “to the screening” 😉

    3 – I don’t agree with you about the relevance of this article. For me, when I installed Elementor Pro on this blog, I asked myself the question: should I disable Classic Elementor? I figured it could help other people who want to move from Elementor to Elementor Pro. Hence the initial theme of this article.

    I hope you will soon discover the next articles?

    Good weekend 😉

    Super article, I actually needed a little boost to switch from the free version to the activation of the PRO extension.
    I couldn't find the .zip 🙂
    Thank you for the precious time gained!

  4. Anthony

    I bought the pro version for my site (I already have the free version). I downloaded the .zip file (elementor-pro-3.2.2) but impossible to install it on my WordPress. I upload the file, click " Install Now" and after a few seconds, I have the following error message: "A critical error occurred on this site. Please refer to your site’s mailbox for more information. »
    Of course I don't get any mail. The Elementor Help Center does not respond... Have you ever met this problem?
    In advance, thank you!

    Very effective article, I have only 5 minutes to set up Elementor Pro on 2 sites under WP.
    Thank you!-)

    I have a multi-site wordpress account and an Elementor pro account for 3 sites.
    No problem to activate it on one of the sites, however on the 2nd, when I click on “connect and activate” I have this wordpress error message “Sorry, you don’t have permission to access this page. "

    The Elementor FAQ assistance indicates:
    "If you get an "URI error of invalid redirect. Try to reconnect, or any similar message “Earth occurred”, when you try to activate Pro, please access Parameters General and check the URLs that are listed there like your WordPress address (URL) and site address (URL). Both URLs must be exactly the same. If they are different, you can get this error. »
    If this is well connected I don't find the " Parameters raised general" they're talking about...

    I imagine it must be all stupid but I block... Can you help me?

    Thank you.

    Hello! I just bought the pro license of Elementor and when I want to upload the zip file that exceeds the size allowed on WordPress. Would anyone have a solution (fully awesome and liberating)? A thousand thanks in advance! Isabelle

    Isabelle, you should contact your host to increase the size of your imports.

    Sorry I'm late, I hope you've found it since?
