If you are an Elementor user, chances are you have heard about Crocoblock. It is the developer of JetPlugins, a set of Elementor add-ons. Each add-on on the JetPlugins set adds a specific functionality to Elementor. For instance, JetMenu add the functionality to create a mega menu, while JetBooking add the booking functionality. All add-ons on the JetPlugins set are available as paid add-ons. You can get them individually or in a set. In addition to JetPlugins, Crocoblock also develops Elementor add-ons that are released for free. We will cover them shortly. But first, let’s get to know more about Crocoblock.
Who is Crocoblock?
Elementor, the most popular WordPress page builder plugin, was released back in 2016. It offered some advantages compared to the existing page builders, including its very intuitive visual editor that became the main reason many users loved it. But more importantly, Elementor had an open ecosystem that allows third-party developers to develop add-ons. These two parameters were enough to convince the Crocoblock team to develop an exclusive add-on set for Elementor which was then known as JetPlugins.
Referring to this page, JetPlugins was released in 2018, about two years after Elementor was released. The Crocoblock team itself is based in Ukraine. According to this page, they have offices in two different cities in the country.
As we described above, Crocoblock is the developer of JetPlugins, a set of premium Elementor add-ons. There are 18 add-ons in the JetPlugins, which you can get whether individually or in a set. Regarding the payment, Crocoblock accepts subscription-based payment and one-time purchase option.
In addition to JetPlugins, Crocoblock also develops free Elementor add-ons which you can get on WordPress plugin directory.

You can use the Reviews Listing widget to add dynamic review and the Static Review widget to add a static review.
Elementor has no built-in feature to create a mega menu or off-canvas menu. If you want to create those menu types, JetMenu is an add-on you can use. You can use JetMenu whether on Elementor Pro or Elementor Free. If you use JetMenu on Elementor Free, you need an add-on that allows you to create a custom header (e.g., JetThemeCore) since Elementor Free doesn’t allow you to create one. JetMenu offers three widgets that you can use to add a navigation menu to your custom header:

After installing and activating the add-on, you will see a new option under the Advanced tab on the Elementor settings panel to set the sticky effect.
