  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Visit Elementor > Granular Controls to access the settings – other settings are accessible via the Editor and set on per page/section/column basis.

To resolve this any widgets placed in the section will need a higher z-index – Go to the Advanced tab of each widget and set the z-index to 1 & save

In order to avoid scripts being loaded on sites that are not using these options a setting control has been added where they can be switched on and off as needed – See Elementor > Granular Controls > Editor Options.

You can enable or disable the bar via the settings page – Visit Elementor > Granular Controls > Editor Options to activate it.

As the admin page is being modified this may happen on some sites but the widgets are not lost – simply click on the screen options and turn them on again.

Just activate Accordions Closed from Elementor > Granular Controls!
