While working on a major update for the Ultimate Addons for Elementor, we make it a point to release a few beta versions before the final stable product. If you wish to try the new features, test and share feedback, you can try the beta version until the stable one is ready.
We strongly recommend you to use the beta version of the plugin in a test environment only. Do not use it on a live site. This will let you try new features and make a note of errors and bugs without worrying what breaks.
The beta version may further come in multiple minor updates until we are perfectly sure of releasing the final version.
Things you should know before using the beta version –
Beta releases contain the early versions of a major update. They might be released a couple of weeks or a few days before the final version. Although we make sure every version offered to you is tested, there might be some minor bugs that need to be worked on.
During the beta phase, there is a freeze on a code. This means that only the present errors and bugs will be fixed. Apart from these, any feedback requesting for a new feature will be considered only in the next major update.
We will make sure we inform you prior to the first beta release before a major update.
Where can you download the beta version?
When beta versions are available, you can download them from your My Accounts page. You will find a section for Beta Testing under downloads. These versions can also be updated on your WordPress website using the updater when new versions are released.
How can I install a Beta Version?
There are 2 methods in which you can get the beta version on your website.
- Automatic Beta Updates
- Manual Process
For the manual process, you can install and get going with a Beta version in 4 easy steps.
- Deactivate & uninstall UAEL plugin from your website. Don’t worry, nothing will be lost!
- Download beta version from the given link.

How can I update the plugin?
Auto updates are not sent for Beta releases. Therefore, in order to switch from a beta version to the updated version of a plugin, you will have to download the updated file and install the plugin manually.
