Elementor User Power on GitHub

You, as a user, have been given the power of voice on GitHub. Use it!

Numerous people take the time to complain about bugs or missing features in Elementor on Facebook, Twitter, Discord, and other Social Channels. If you are one of them and you just want to vent, fine. However, if you really want change, send your input to the right channel. That is on the Elementor GitHub Issues page.

This is where the developers read your remarks

GitHub is THE place where we, as a community, really get to flex our muscles towards Elementor. And it’s not happening nearly enough. The last time I checked (March 24, 2022) the highest number of comments on an open issue or a feature request in Elementor was less than 400. Given the number of installs worldwide (over 10 million) and, at the time I write this post, 125,000 members in the international Elementor Facebook Community, this is underwhelming. Really. You, as a user, have been given the power of voice on GitHub. Use it! Spread the word on your posted issue or feature request.

Engaging the community to support your request

Once you post your feature request or bug report on GitHub, there are ways to engage other members in the huge Elementor Facebook Community to +1 those feature requests.

You may not realize it, but a huge number of Elementor users are DIY web creators who are not as tech focussed as you and I are. It means the jargon in requests may elude them. But when ways are found to also explain to them why and how they can profit from a requested feature, they may be less inhibited to join on GitHub and put up their vote. You could help by making them more familiar with GitHub, for example. You could write a blog post, create an explaining video, whatever floats your boat for traction of these requests.

Just my 2 cents…

PS, I’m not employed by Elementor, I’m a volunteer moderator, and proudly part of the Elementor Community Leaders team.

Thank you.
