Advanced Elements 0.4 released – new widgets

The Advanced Elements 0.4 release

I have released a new version of the Advanced Elements plugin and there is a few new features.

Advanced Elements now support both Elementor Pro and AnyWhere Elementor Pro templates, this means the Advanced Elements widgets now correctly detect the ACF fields used on the selected placeholder page/post.

I have also added support for dynamic lightboxes. You can now trigger lightboxes from the Button widget and other widgets. What is cool here is that you can choose a section as a target. This means on a page you can add another section, add AE widgets and Elementor widgets to it, and then have it displayed in a modal on button clicks. See the documentation for instructions.

The video widget now also supports lazy loading of videos and adds support for Facebook videos.

The release also comes with these new widgets Repeating image boxes and Repeating video boxes.
