I’m a Pro subscriber. Elementor was good when they focused on making the product better. Now they’ve introduced AI and I’m seeing ads and prompts all over the place. No way to turn them off. In the latest update, the changelog has ‘Fix: Slow loading of WordPress admin and Elementor screens due to AI health check”. So now it’s AI slowing my site down. Not other plugins or crappy hosting. Elementor. Putting profit before people.

My client site is broken after an update, but didn’t saw it immediately. Now the site is broken with no possibility to come back to a previous version. F*** Elementor and their shi*ty updates !

J’ai essayé la nouvelle optimisation pour augmente le chargement et il est plus lent, vérifier sur pagespeed. Alors j’ai remis les réglages par défauts, si c’est bien ce que je crois et je reprends la performance 68 (Mobile)au lieu de 51 après le réglage optimisé de Elementor. Merci quand même pour votre travail et suis très satisfait!

I accidently forgot to cancel the annual subscription to this service and discovered they had renewed it without any warning. They even charged a my credit card on file which had expired. I asked for a refund as I had no intention of using this software but they refused. I find this method of auto-renew by stealth highly unethical and if it is not already it should be illegal. I think it is a poor reflection on the company itself. An ethical company would understand, empathise and accept that this was an accidental purchase and refund the charge.
