Having Problems Using Elementor? Start Here

If you’re having problems using Elementor tabs on mobile, there are a few solutions you can try.

First, check to see if your theme is compatible with Elementor. If it isn’t, you may need to switch to a different theme.

Next, try disabling any plugins that could be conflicting with Elementor. If that doesn’t work, you can always reach out to the Elementor support team for help.

Finally, make sure you’re using the latest version of Elementor. If you’re not, updating to the latest version may solve your problem.

Check your Elementor version

If you’re using an older version of Elementor, it’s possible that the tabs feature isn’t supported on mobile devices. To check which version of Elementor you’re using, go to the WordPress dashboard and select Elementor > About.

If you’re using an outdated version of Elementor, we recommend updating to the latest version. To do this, go to the WordPress dashboard and select Updates. If there’s a new version of Elementor available, you’ll see it listed here. Simply click Update Now to install the update.

Check for updates

If you’re experiencing issues with tabs not working on Mobile Elementor, there are a few things you can do to try and troubleshoot the issue.

First, check for any updates that may be available for your Elementor plugin and WordPress version. Updating to the latest versions of both may resolve the issue.

If there are no updates available, or updating doesn’t solve the problem, try deactivating all other plugins and checking if tabs start working correctly. If they do, reactivate your plugins one by one until you identify which plugin is causing the conflict.

If you’re still having trouble, get in touch with Elementor’s support team for further assistance.

Try a different browser

If you’re having trouble with tabs not working on your mobile Elementor, there are a few things you can try. First, try using a different browser. If that doesn’t work, try clearing your cache and cookies. If that doesn’t work, try resetting your device. If none of these solutions work, you may need to contact Elementor support for further assistance.

Clear your cache

If you’re having trouble with tabs not working on your mobile Elementor site, one of the first things you should try is clearing your cache. This will often fix the problem, as it will remove any old or corrupt files that may be causing the issue.

To clear your cache, simply go to your browser’s settings and look for the “Clear Cache” or “Empty Cache” option. Once you’ve found it, select it and confirm that you want to clear your cache. This process will vary depending on which browser you’re using, but it’s usually pretty straightforward.

If clearing your cache doesn’t fix the problem, there are a few other things you can try. Check out our other solutions below!

Responsive editing for mobile and tablets

If you’re using Elementor to build your website, then you know that one of its best features is the responsive editing capabilities. This means that you can create a website that looks great on all devices, including mobile and tablet.

However, there are times when responsive editing can be a bit finicky. If you’re having trouble getting your tabs to work correctly on mobile, here are some solutions that may help.

Solution 1: Use the Mobile Preview Option

The first thing you can try is to use the Mobile Preview option in Elementor. This will let you see how your website will look on a mobile device, and it can be helpful in troubleshooting any issues with your tabs. To access the Mobile Preview option, just click on the Devices icon in the upper left-hand corner of the Elementor editor.

Solution 2: Check the Tab Structure

If your tabs aren’t appearing correctly on mobile, it could be because of the structure of your tabbed content. In order for tabs to work properly on mobile, they must be nested within a column. So if your tabbed content is not currently nested within a column, that could be the issue. Just go to the Structure section of theElementor editor and make sure that your tabs are nested within a column.

Solution 3: Use Custom CSS

If neither of the above solutions solve your problem, then you may need to use custom CSS to get your tabs working properly on mobile. Just go to the Advanced tab of your Elementor editor and add the following code:
@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) {
.elementor-tabs .elementor-tab-title {display: block; float: none;}
This code will force the tab titles to appear as blocks on mobile devices, instead of in a horizontal list. This should make them appear correctly on mobile.
