What is a global widget in Elementor?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 4:25 am

A global widget is an Elementor plugin that allows you to create custom widgets for use throughout your website. This can be useful for tracking data, displaying information about your users, or anything else you can think of. You can create a global widget in Elementor by clicking on the “Add New” button in the Widgets section of your Elementor dashboard, and selecting “Global Widgets.” From there, you’ll be able to name your widget, select a template from the provided options, and add your own code. Once you’ve completed these steps, your global widget will be available for use on any page of your website.

PRO TIP: Please be aware that global widgets in Elementor can potentially cause problems with your site. If you are not careful, they can cause your site to break or malfunction. Use them at your own risk.

In addition, you can manage your widget’s settings in the “Widget Settings” section of your Elementor dashboard. This includes controlling which pages your widget is available on, as well as setting up a timer or alarm to trigger your widget when it should be loaded. Finally, you can export your widget’s settings as a JSON file to use on another website. Overall, global widgets are a great way to customize and extend your Elementor website without having to create individual widgets for every page.
