Back then, we started with a handful of widgets such as Post Grid, form styler widgets, Flip Box, and Pricing Tables, just to name a few.
We’ve grown quite a bit since then, and today, we have more than 90 exciting, unique addons for Elementor, with a huge team comprising of dedicated departments for Development, Marketing, QA, Support and Design.
