How to Create a Gradient Progress Bar in Elementor

Updated: May 26, 2020

Elementor has a native Progress Bar widget that you can use to add elements like skill level or progress of something to the page/template you are creating. When using this widget, you can customize its look by changing the color and the typography of the text. This widget only allows you to use a solid color for the bar.

Is it possible to create a progress bar with a gradient color?

If you have a CSS skill, you can use the pro version of Elementor and add a custom CSS to the Progress Bar widget to create a gradient progress bar. Otherwise, you can install an add-on that offers a progress bar widget in which allows you to choose a gradient color when changing its color. Two add-ons that offer such a widget are Essential Addons and JetElements.
