Ultimate Troubleshooting of common issues of Elementor Page Builder
1. Most Common Issue : Can’t Edit with Elementor Page Builder and Seeing, That rotating Wheel.
It’s issue of your Server configuration. You need to make your Memory Limit to 1000M. Wondering Why? Because As using Addons plugins are common. On an average most elementor sites have 3-4 Premium Addons. Each Addons have multiple widgets in that. All those widgets, Have to load all of their CSS and JS in the backend, When you edit the page. So, Combination of all CSS and JS of all widgets, Make it heavy to load backend. At that time, You need higher memory limit to make your backend work. Note: There is nothing wrong in using multiple premium addons.
Simple! Contact Your Hosting Provider and ask them to adjust this. Or You can do by yourself if you know about, How to edit PHP.ini or manage that using WordPress Plugin.
You have increased memory limit to 1000M and You are still facing the same issue? Make Your Server configuration like below :
max_execution_time : 800 or above
memory_limit : 1000M or above
post_max_size : 64M or above
upload_max_filesize : 64M or above
max_input_vars : 5000 or above
It’s time to offload CSS and JS from backend. Go through all your premium addons, and turn off all unused widgets. Once you disable those widgets, It will start working. Performance Tip : We always recommend to turn off, All unused widgets of addons. It will helpful to load your backend and frontend both faster.
