Configure Elementor Pro with UAE, EE, EA, and PAFE

About…

This post is for those that use the pro versions of…

  • Elementor Pro 2.7,
  • Ultimate Addons for Elementor (UAE), 
  • Elementor Extras (EE), 
  • Essential Addons (EA), 
  • and Piotnet Addons for Elementor (PAFE) — they have a bunch of duplicate functionality to Elementor Pro I wish to avoid.

These wonderful plugins have overlapping features. Some overlap with each other, and some overlap with Elementor Pro. I love the power of having all of them installed, but I don’t like forgetting which I currently prefer and I really dislike features that overlap with the current version of Elementor Pro. If you’re in the same boat, this post is for you.

PAFE vs. Elementor Pro 2.7

First things first. I really wish PAFE had a Disable Duplicate Features that disabled all features that overlap with Elementor Pro. Until then, disable the following features of PAFE that have since been rolled into Elementor Pro either entirely or more than good enough:

  • Absolute Positioning,
  • Display Inline Block,
  • Font Awesome 5, 
  • Disable all form features (So many form options available to us! I just don’t use these ones.)
    • Ctrl+F for “Field” features,
    • Ctrl+F for “Form” features,
    • Submit Post.
  • Ctrl+F for Gallery, Garllery (yes, miss-spelled), and Lightbox features,
  • Multiple Background Images, 
  • Parallax Backgrounds, 
  • Sticky Header.
Next I turn off the following which I just think are too much and not needed:
  • Advanced Nav Menu Styling
  • Convert Image to Black or White
  • Ctrl+F for “Responsive” (border, column, etc.)
Legend: 
  • N/A. Feature not included.
  • Included. Keep installed.
  • Included, but I usually do not keep it installed mainly to keep my design screen less complicated.
Feature+Notes Elem Pro UAE EE EA PAFE
Table
They all are good and kind of work the same. EAU is what I used to create this table.
Tooltip
Nearly identical. I prefer EE version because of where it is located.
Parallax Features
I prefer Elementors parallax features.
Particle Backgrounds
I prefer Elementors parallax features.
Conditional Display
Conditional display content based on conditions like time of day, DOW, DOM, DOY, page, etc. Watch Video
Accordion
For manual accordions, I stick with Elementor Pro plus the PAFE extension. For dynamic post-based, I use Easy Accordion Pro.
Timeline
For historical timelines, I use Cool Timeline Pro.
