12 Best Elementor Addons for WordPress 2022
One of the great things about open-source software is that it is "open" to other developers so that it can be used and extended. This openness is part of why there are already over 60,000 WordPress plugins to choose from in the world.
But these benefits don't just apply to the core WordPress software - they also mean that intrepid developers are free to extend specific plugins. One area where this is particularly common is in WordPress page builders.
Many of the most popular page builders have spawned active third-party add-on communities. That is, developers code free or premium plugins to add even more functionality to the page builder.
In this post, we will talk about one specific page builder – Elementor add-ons.
Whether you're using the free version of Elementor Page Builder or Elementor Pro, these add-ons can give you more flexibility when building your designs.
Since Elementor add-ons come in both free and premium packages, we'll split this post into two sections, starting with:

2. Footer header element
Have you ever wanted to use Elementor to create your website header and footer? I think you can see where this is going...
Header The footer element allows you to do this, although only if you are using one of the supported themes. These topics are currently:
I know this is a pretty short list, but all of these themes are extremely popular with people who use page builders, so this Elementor extension is actually more valuable than you might think at first glance.
Assuming you're using one of these themes, all you have to do is design a template, select it, and it will be used as the header or footer throughout the site.
3. Add-ons for the free version of Elementor
Addons for Elementor is a free plugin that adds many new elements you can use to build your pages.

Modal For Elementor does one thing - it allows you to create modal popups with Elementor. While it's pretty cool, the developer has stated that he won't be actively working on it anymore, so there's a chance that it could become an embarrassment in the future. Buyer beware!
