Elementor Frozen Screen

There are three common issues to investigate when your Elementor loading freezes on the white screen.


  1. Under Elementor > Settings > Advanced switch editor loader method to “Enable”

2. Go to Elementor>System Info and check your PHP version. It should be 7.2 or higher. ( As of 12-20-2018) The version will change as new PHP versions are released. This can usually be  upgraded through your CPanel or calling your Host and asking them to update it..

3. Go to Elementor >System Info and look for the  value in WordPress Environment Memory Limit. It should be 256m or more. Elementor and it’s plugins take more memory so this is a common obstacle. You can change the Maximum Memory in the wp-config.php file. You can access this through an FTP program like filezilla or through your CPanel.

To increase the WordPress allowed memory size for your website:
  1. Open wp-config.php, which by default is located in the root WordPressdirectory.
  2. Find the following line near the end of the file: /* That’s all, stop editing! Happy blogging. …
  3. Just above that line, add the following line: define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ‘256M’);

4. If you entered HTML or PHP code into a widget and the code has errors, this can also freeze the page the next time you go in to edit. You may have to edit in WP to remove the code. Or If you did short code insert, go to the short code and modify it there.

Hope this helps..
