Weekly WordPress News: Get 25% Off Elementor + Birthdays
You know that we’re big fans of Elementor here at WPLift, even using it to design our site. That’s why our lede this week is Elementor’s third birthday celebration, where you can get 25% off all pricing tiers. That means a single site license costs just $36, with an unlimited license going for $149. Check out our Elementor review to learn more.
Beyond that, there have been some more acquisitions in the WordPress space, and the latest version of the Gutenberg plugin brings block editing to widgets.
