With nearly a decade of excellence under its belt and thanks to its unrivaled flexibility, ease of use and extensive customization capability, Jupiter X has become a household name in the world of website building.
Today we’re taking things to a whole new level! introducing Jupiter X v3, a host of brand new features, improvements and widgets to provide the most enriched, efficient and hassle-free website building experience with WordPress.
All the things that matter inside one powerful core
With Jupiter X v2, we boosted Jupiter X shop capabilities by removing the need for various WooCommerce extensions, developing alternatives to checkout optimization, sales funnels, dynamic discounts and coupons, product filters and more right inside the theme.
With Jupiter X v3 we are continuing to make Jupiter X more capable, more intuitive and less dependent on third-party tools.
For some key widgets and features you previously needed third-party solutions like Elementor Pro or Crocoblock widgets. We have spent several months developing these widgets right inside the Jupiter X core so that you won’t need third-party libraries anymore.
Put simply, there will be less clutter in your WordPress admin and you will no longer need to worry about plugin update incompatibilities with other third-party plugins. Additionally, you won’t see multiple widgets for the same purpose in your widget library, which will save a lot of page size and speed up your website.
For every widget and feature we replaced, we reviewed all existing third-party tools and created complete and enriched native widgets as alternatives. In some widgets we introduced a much more enhanced UX that makes that widget easier and more intuitive to use than its counterparts.
Farewell Elementor Pro! Hello speed, performance and ease of use
On top of creating native alternatives to features such as Theme Builder, Theme Styles and Custom Code, with v3 we are bringing even more power to your building experience while virtually eliminating the need for Elementor Pro. Jupiter X v3 introduces its own alternatives to:
- Media Carousel widget
- Media Gallery widget
- Motion Effects feature
- Role Manager feature
- Lottie Animations widget
- Global widget
- Social Share widget
- Post and Shop Single widgets
- Custom Fonts feature
- Custom Icons feature
- Snap Scroll
And many more!
Let’s learn about all of these in detail.
Global Widget: More global control over widget appearance
The Global Widget feature allows you to fully control how a specific widget should appear across your entire website. This means that when you edit a widget once, all of its instances will immediately be updated across all pages.
Simply right click on the widget and choose Save as a Global. Give your widget a name and it will appear in Elementor’s global tab with an anchor icon. Now you can simply drag and drop it into any page without having to recreate the widget and its styling.
Together with the revamped theme styles, Global Widget will help streamline styling for any large WordPress website.
Build beautiful blogs from scratch or use elegant premade styles
The new post widgets allow you to create your blog loop and single and archive pages from the ground up so that you can customize the look of every single element to craft an eye-catching blog. These widgets include:
|Advanced Posts||Post Carousel|
|Post Title||Post Content|
|Post Comment||Post Meta|
|Post Terms||Post Navigation|
|Author Box||Archive Title|
You can also use the Advanced Posts widget to create outstanding blog loops in no time with modern layouts such as Matrix, Metro, Masonry and Grid.

Meet Role Manager
This is a highly useful feature for agencies and freelancers who want to impose restrictions on what specific user types can do on their website. For example, an editor can edit both the content and style of pages, while an author can edit only the content and the contributor can edit neither.
With the new Jupiter X Role Manager you can define these restrictions without Elementor Pro. In WP Dashboard > Jupiter X > Settings > Elementor, select Role Manager and all options will be visible in the WP Dashboard > Elementor > Role Manager section.
