For quite a few months now, the developers of the free OceanWP theme have been working hard on a big update of Ocean Elementor Widgets. The new version comes with many useful new widgets just waiting for you to be added to your WordPress site powered by the Elementor page builder. Also, they announced a partnership with Cloudways.
OceanWP has partnered with Cloudways, a popular managed cloud hosting platform. Now, you can install the OceanWP WordPress theme in just one click and you will have the best performances for your website along with a top-notch support if you are facing any issues.
Cloudways allows you to deploy a managed cloud server in no time. You can choose your favourite platform such as DigitalOcean, Vultr, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Linode, Kyup or Google Compute Engine (GCE).
At this point it would lead too far to list all new widgets. Therefore you will find just the most important and interesting ones below.
- Switch widget for switching between pricing table plans for instance
- Modal widget: It can be shown at a click of a button, after a specific time or on exit intent.
- Google Map widget: Activate/deactivate map controls, select map styles, and add your own pins.
- Image Comparison widget: Display before/after images
- Woo Slider widget with customization options, e.g. number of columns & styling
- Forms widget for Contact Form 7, Ninja Forms, Gravity Forms, Caldera Forms, and WPForms
The widget styles and scripts are only loaded if it is actually used on page. Thus, your WordPress site will not be slowed down.
The Elementor Widget extension can be purchased for $9.99 for a single site license. Alternatively, you can go for the Core Extensions Bundle. This way you will get access to all premium extensions developed by OceanWP.
