Introducing New Widget and Extensions: Liven Up Your Website for the Holidays

Holiday seasons are around the corner, and we are thrilled to bits! Halloween, Hanukkah, Christmas, and other celebrations make this a great time of year! 

As a business owner, the holiday season also means sales. An opportunity to really skyrocket your sales numbers during the last few months of the year. 

Lest you forget, Black Friday is coming too!

That brings an all-important question. What are your plans for your website this holiday season?

If you haven’t planned it yet, this post is just what you need to get started.

Here at Brainstorm Force, we have been busy working in close collaboration with the Elementor team to add a whole new set of widgets and elements for our Ultimate Addons for Elementor (UAE) plugin. We are calling these new widgets The Holiday Pack.

From welcoming visitors to your landing page with background music to having party props, shape dividers, and attractive background visual effects on your posts and pages, UAE has it all. 

All created to effortlessly liven up your website!

Here’s a sneak peek into what’s UAE now has to offer:

  • Welcome Music widget: Add engaging background music to your web page with this new Elementor widget
  • Party Propz extension: Add attractive decorations to widgets, columns, and sections on posts and pages
  • Particle Backgrounds extension: New addition to UAE Particle Backgrounds for Christmas and Halloween
  • New Shape Dividers: Christmas trees and Halloween shapes for Elementor Shape Dividers

You get access to all the widgets mentioned above without any compromise to website performance. The new holiday widgets are deactivated by default, so you don’t need to worry when updating the plugin to a newer version. 

UAE is entirely modular. That means only the features that you wish to use can be activated and take effect on the pages and posts you use them on. This provides complete flexibility when using the Holiday widgets.

Excited to see these in action? We surely are!

@AstraWP just added Holiday Pack in Ultimate Addons for Elementor! Party propz , festive shape dividers & particles in background, welcome music widget and so many extensions. Can’t wait to use it on my website.

Play Music for Website Visitors

Wouldn’t it be nice to recreate the real-world effect of walking into a store with music playing in the background directly on your website?

That’s exactly what you can do with UAE’s latest Welcome Music widget!

Festive welcome music can engage users and encourage them to stay longer on your website. Ideal if you want to sell or convert!

Highlights of Welcome Music widget: 

  • Easily embed music from external sources or upload them. We have also included some music files for you to use for free 
  • Users get to choose if they’d like to continue playing the music or pause it using the on/off button present on the page. You can completely customize this button with icons, colors and manage the position
  • You can set music on autoplay and play loops
  • Control the volume of the music

Decorate Your Webpage With Party Propz 

Here’s another new extension, Party Propz. Something that we are super thrilled about and happy to be the first to launch something like this in the Elementor community.

Have you noticed websites that add decorative elements, such as a Santa’s cap, snowman, or even candles on their pages? 

Santa Cap and Snow Effect

Well, that’s what you get with the latest UAE extension.

Using the Party Propz extension, you can add decorative elements to any of your columns, sections, and any of the Elementor widgets – including third-party widgets. 

To find UAE – Party Propz, just edit the widget, column, or section where you’d like to add the decorative element and go to the Advanced tab. You’ll see the objects there.

Here is a list of decorative objects  you can add :

  • Christmas tree
  • Reindeer
  • Hanukkah candles 
  • Hanging decorations 
  • Santa cap
  • Santa Claus 
  • Snow
  • Snowman 
  • Custom – you can add any of your own images here

You can easily manage the position of the decorations and place them exactly where you want, just like you would any other Elementor widget. 

You also have the ability to manage size, rotate the image, apply CSS filters, and other options for each decorative element.

Wondering how this will look on different screen sizes? You can easily customize and manage Party Propz to work flawlessly across all devices.

Display Moving Gifts And Pumpkins in Backgrounds 

Particle Backgrounds are an existing UAE extension that helps create an interactive background for your rows and columns. The extension lets you show animated particles moving around in the background.

We’ve added three new background styles to this extension exclusively for the upcoming holiday seasons. 

They are:

  • Snowflakes
  • Christmas
  • Halloween

This can be found under Style tab > UAE Particle Background.

Once you select a style, you can manage the particle size, flow, direction, and everything about the effects.

Addition to Elementor Shape Dividers

Want to add some attractive festive shape dividers to your Elementor sections? 

Shape Divider

The UAE plugin has included some new and attractive shape dividers designed specifically for the Christmas and Halloween holidays.

Here are the two new inclusions:

  • Shape Divider (Top): Christmas lights
  • Shape Divider (Bottom): Christmas trees and Halloween shapes  

You can manage the following dimensions for shape dividers:

  • Width
  • Height 
  • Flip shape
  • Invert shape 
  • Bring to front
