Do you install Elementor on your WordPress site? If yes, you might want to enrich your widget library. Although the default widgets offered by Elementor are plenty enough (over 90 widgets with Elementor Pro), they might don’t meet all of your needs. For instance, Elementor has no default widget to display your Instagram feed. Or, if you want to integrate plugins like BetterDocs or LearnDash, Elementor has no default widgets to do so.
In addition to adding new widgets to your Elementor, some add-ons also add extra features. For instance, Happy Addons has a Live Copy feature that allows you to copy the demo style from the Happy Addons website to the page or template you are working on. Another example, Essential Addons has a feature to password-protect a page.
