Elementor Pro allows you to save a widget you have customized as a global widget. Thanks to this feature, you can create new pages more quickly since you can use the global widgets every time you want to create a new page with Elementor. WunderWP is an Elementor add-on that offers similar functionality. The difference, you can use it on all versions of Elementor, be it free or paid. WunderWP is developed by Artbees, the developer of the Jupiter X theme.

WunderWP is one of the plugins included on the Jupiter X theme bundle. Although this plugin is developed by Artbees, it is not built specifically for Jupiter X. You can use it no matter the theme you use. WunderWP is available for free on the WordPress plugin directory.
How WunderWP helps you create a page with Elementor
WunderWP is a great solution if you use the free version of Elementor, yet want to save a widget you have customized for recurring use. With this plugin, you can save a widget you have customized and use it on other pages you want to create next. Technically, what WunderWP stores are the applied styles (called preset). A preset can only be used on the widget associated with it. For instance, a preset assigned to the Button widget can only be applied to the Button widget. WunderWP offers ready-to-use presets for Elementor widgets (be it Elementor’s native widgets or Raven widgets), allowing you to instantly have a beautiful widget without making any customization.
The cool thing about WunderWP is that it allows you to save a preset to the cloud and use it (the preset) for different websites (on different domains). In addition to widget preset, WunderWP also allows you to save a section template as well as a page template to the cloud.
Another cool thing, WunderWP offers ready-to-use page templates and section templates.
How to use WunderWP
We said that WunderWP allows you to save your widget presets as well as templates to the cloud, meaning that you need a WunderWP account. Even so, you can also use WunderWP without creating an account if you only want to use the pre-made presets and templates without storing them to the cloud.
WunderWP offers presets for Elementor Free widgets, Elementor Pro widgets, and Raven widgets.
- Elementor Free widgets: 134 presets
- Elementor Pro widgets: 138 presets
- Raven widgets: 42 widgets
As time goes by, the available presets might are getting more (we use WunderWP version 1.4.0 on this article).
To start using WunderWP, you can install it first. Go to Plugins -> Add New. Search for WunderWP on the search box and click the Install Now button. Activate the plugin immediately once installed.
