Elementor Custom Skin

Description

This plugin adds new skin to Elementor Page Builder Posts and Posts Archive widget.

You can design a loop item just like a single template and it would be used as a skin so you can be able to create a post grid the way you like.

Working on a major release!!! A new widget will be available that would increase the flexibility of loop creation.

New in version 2.2.0

Go to Pagination and you’ll see “Load moare” pagination. It will load the posts trough AJAX. No more boring pagination.

New in version 2.0.0

The biggest newest feature is the Custom Grid. No more boring grid with fixed number of columns.

All you have to do is to create a Custom Grid Template and place the Post Item Widget (placeholder) in your template made with sections and columns, and why not other widgets.

I was working on a project using the author archive. I needed to use Elementor's post widget to list instances of all the post types submitted by each author. The problem was that once the user moved to another page in one post type, all the other post types would also move to that page. Ele Custom Skin's Ajax pagination feature saved the day! Now, page browsing in one post type does not affect the other post types on the author archive page. However, there's one thing. The developer says Custom Grid is his newest, biggest feature. But I do not know how to use it. In fact, I did not know how to use ECS itself initially until I watched a WPTUTs video explaining how to use it. So, I am asking the developer to please release a video or tutorial explaining with an example how to use ECS. Thank you.

Great Plugin which gives you so much flexibility. Also the support is very responsive and personal (got the PRO version). Can recommend it for more complex Elementor sites.

Thank you for supply such a good feature. definitely 5 star however I would like to add some feedback with WPML issues. I'm using WPML and advanced translation editor. Since I have done translating page where loop exist (which is translated properly in advanced translator editor) the loop is disappearing to translated page (no problems with original page). I can fix this manually if will select the proper loop of the corresponding language by opening the already translated page in the elementor. But this is not correct from the point of view of using WPML. Hope you can find time to fix this in feature, anyway 5 start is yours!`

This has made me very happy. Spent days searching for something like this without success, but this does the job nicely. Simple extension to Elementor that lets your design and customise your Posts Widget so the post previews look exactly as you want them. Works with custom post types, custom fields, FacetWP, bringing the full power of the elementor design interface to probably the most important screen in your site. Want to add an accordion into your preview? You can. I've been testing it out all day, and so far have failed to break it - and I have a talent for breaking plugins! 1* off because I'm finding the endless pagination feature a bit buggy, but other than that I can't fault it. (And if I can get that to work, it'll be a 5* review and an upgrade / donation.)

Great plugin for extending Elementor Pro. I need little tweaks to the Posts layout such as the thumbnail on the side rather than on the top. This makes it easy.
