Introducing Which Elementor Addon

Table of Contents

Today I’m taking a look at a brand new Elementor addon plugin that ads a hover tag to all elements to show you what plugin that widget is from.

Which Elementor Addon will help you to find out the widget’s plugin name so you can identify what ones you have used when creating your pages layouts. 😁

This can be really handy as there are plenty of Third-Party Elementor Addons which help add extra function to Elementor. 

If your anything like me you’ve installed a few different add-on plugins to help you build out your site as they all offer something different.

How to find what plugin’s widget you’re using?

Currently, if you want to find the plugin name of the widgets that are being used, We have to edit every section to find out the name of the widgets. 

Or you can use the inspect tool in your browser to locate the class id of the widgets which doesn’t tell you what widget it is. 

Why should you use Which Addons for Elementor?

Nowadays most of the popular Elementor Addons come with the On-Demand Asset Loading. Allowing you to disable the unused widgets from the admin panel of those plugins. 

Switching off unused elements will help you ensure the fastest speed of your site. And Which Elementor Addon will help to find the used widgets, and you can easily disable your unused widgets. Indirectly, this plugin will help you in speeding up your website.
