With the 1.3 release comes three new widgets. The biggest addition is support for ACF post relationships. It works in a similar manner as the Repeater with Template widget. You create an Elementor template with the post data you want to display. Then on the page you want to display the post youadd the “Relationship with template” widget and select the ACF Relationship field to use. Pretty simple but very usefull. Other new widgets are Repeating Testimonials and Repeater File List widget. Repeater File List widget renders a list of ACF File fields.

ACF Relationship widget

Select the relationship field to use.
There are numerous layout options for the displaying the selected Elementor template.
Example of a rendering a template. The rendered templates are just standard Elementor templates so anything you can do with a Elementor template you can also display with the widget.

Repeating Testimonials Widget

Another new widget is the Repeating Testimonals widget. This works the same way as the single Testimonial Carousels widget but it displays the testimonials in a list instead. Future update will support random listing. It also includes new controls and styling that has also been applied to the Testimonial Carousel widget. Such as borders, vertical quote placement and more.
