How do I add custom code to Elementor?

Last updated on December 20, 2022 @ 11:17 am

Adding custom code to Elementor is a breeze. There are a few different ways to do this, but we’ll walk you through the easiest way to add custom code to your project.

1. First, open up your Elementor project in your favorite code editor.

2. Once you’re in your project, you’ll want to locate the main Elementor file. This file is located in the root of your project, and is called “Elementor.js”.

3. Once you’ve located the Elementor.js file, you’ll want to add a new file to your project.

4. This file will be called “custom.js”, and it will contain your custom code.

5. To add a new file to your project, simply open up the “File” menu in your code editor, and select “New File”.

6. Once you’ve opened the “New File” dialog, you’ll need to select the “JS” category.

7. Next, you’ll need to enter the name of your new file. In this example, we’ll call our new file “custom.

PRO TIP: Adding custom code to Elementor can be risky and may result in unexpected changes to your website. Proceed with caution and make sure you understand the risks before proceeding.

8. Once you’ve named your new file, you’ll need to click on the “File” button to save it.

9. Now, we’ll need to add some code to our custom.js file.

10. The first thing we’ll need to do is import the Elementor module. This module contains all of the core functionality of Elementor, so we’ll need to include it in our file.

11. Next, we’ll need to create a function that will be used to add a new element to our project.

12. The function we’ll create will take two arguments: the name of the element to be created, and the element’s location in the project.

13. Finally, we’ll need to add a call to our function in the Elementor.init() function.

14. Now that we’ve added our code, let’s take a look at what it does:

  • First, the function will import the Elementor module. This will allow us to use the core functionality of Elementor in our custom code.
  • Next, the function will create a new element. The name of the new element will be set to “custom”, and the element will be placed at the location specified in the second argument.
  • Finally, the function will call the Elementor.init() function to initialize the new element.
