Note: When adding some of these widgets, you might face a message and cannot see the widget’s preview. To resolve the issue, you must ensure that the displaying event already contains that widget and that you have activated that module from MEC Settings > Single Event > Sidebar.

Assigning Single Builder template Globally

Once you have done designing the single builder template, navigate to MEC Settings > Single Event > Basic tab.

1- To start, I installed the Elementor Single Builder Addon, but the Elementor’s editor page displays an error. What should I do?

You can easily go to WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalink and set the permalinks of your website on the Post name. After that, the editor page will be active.

2- I get an error code 500 when editing the Elementor Single Builder Addon page.

You need to have the latest version of the add-on and check the configurations of your server. Please follow this guide. If this isn’t helpful, let us know so we can do more inspections.

3- Does the Elementor Single Builder Addon work with MEC Lite?

Yes, you can use it with MEC Lite as well.

4- I added widgets to the page, but they don’t have any content. Why?

The add-on gets the latest information from your event and edits them. Therefore, you must make sure that the last event in MEC > All Events has all the contents that the widget needs for editing.

5- I created a page with Elementor, but it is still showing the default MEC skin. Why is that?

You need to make sure that Elementor Single Builder is set in MEC Settings > Single Event > Basic > Single Event Style.

6- Certain modules are active in MEC Settings, but I cannot see them in the front end. Why is that?

This happens because the widgets in the MEC Sidebar are not active. Make sure these widgets are active.

Has any one used this and got it to be responsive? I created the single event and it looks fine in the Elementor builder in desktop, tablet, and phone preview. But when you actually use it on your site it only dispalys as non-responsive desktop layout
