Elementor Custom Skin

Description

This plugin adds new skin to Elementor Page Builder Posts and Posts Archive widget.

You can design a loop item just like a single template and it would be used as a skin so you can be able to create a post grid the way you like.

All you have to do is to create a Custom Grid Template and place the Post Item Widget (placeholder) in your template made with sections and columns, and why not other widgets.

For a quick tutorial see Frequently Asked Questions!

Note: This plugin is an addon of Elementor Page Builder (https://wordpress.org/plugins/elementor/) and will only work with Elementor Page Builder installed.

Your plugin might be decent but it makes me super angry every time I try to add pagination to my post blocks. How dare you TAKE AWAY functionality from Elementor? That they just added no less. Ive been waiting for them to add proper ajax to that widget for years, and your stupid plugin would just take that away thinking that would actually make someone want to pay you? Super lame. Stand on your own added features. Added load time is insane too for anyone reading. Don't mess with this plugin. There are other ones that add loops without being scammers. And its high time Elementor added custom loops and shut down plugins like this altogether. After ten years of using Wordpress I added an account here just because of how infuriating this plugin is....

So basically, how this plugin works is that it loads the elementor template for each element you want to bring in the page.If let's say you want a slider with 10 products it loads the template 10 times. I bought the premium version to get access to the other elements but I didn't know how much it bloats the site. I have a shop where I added sliders with my product categories (around 8 categories with 10 products each). On 1Gbs wifi it takes around 10seconds to load the page with caching, premium Litespeed, Cloudinary Subscription and Cloudfront Premium CDN... As a test I duplicated the page, I added the same products and categories but without the plugin and load speed is somewhere 1.2-1.5 seconds. Really, really disappointing. I am looking for a different solution tbh...

The plugins's premise is fantastic. It can enrich a site with its functionality. For this, Well done ECS! However, recently the plugin has broken a client site twice due to incompatibilities with Elementor. These arose following updates The support system is poor and responses to issues are tardy. We also purchased the Pro/commercial version of this plugin and expected better support. Something to think about before committing to this plugin. If your site's functionality or uptime is not critical, this may not be an issue. Hoping the devs improve testing and response time to support issues. It would make ECS a solid choice for added functionality to a WP site.
