Hi Noman,

I'd like to confirm that with your latest update de 'edit with Elementor' button is again available. Great!

The only thing that keeps bugging me is that WPML still breaks the elementor maintenance mode (admin menu > elementor > tools > tab: maintenance mode).

Any estimates on a fix for this? I saw other people only with the same problem so maybe it's easy to reproduce for you? One can indeed enable the maintenance mode but if, as a anonymous visitor (incognito browser tab) you go to the page you will see the regular homepage and not the in-maintenance page.

Have a great weekend later!

I have tested this in a clean install. If we just activate WPML it works.
But after we complete WPML Configuration wizard, it does not work.

I am able to reproduce this issue and I am going to escalate this to our 2nd tier support for further review.

Hello, I'm using last version of Elementor (2.4.7) + Elementor PRO (2.4.5) with last version of WPML (4.2.2), I'm using maintenance mode (coming soon) mode and if WPML is activated I've the bug.
Even if i re-save the permalinks and use the following options :
- Disable browser language redirect
- Display alternative languages in the HEAD section + As soon as possible option

I have the same compatibility problem with Maintenance Mode page created in Elementor. 
It works only when I disable WPML plugin.
I think it's important to hide website content before its released. Only way how to do it now is not to use WPML plugin.

Can you let us know when this issue will be fixed?

Thank you

Still does not work, but I cannot even make it work with the WMPL fix or even with WPML these days so I think it's a deeper issue that the Elementor people need to deal with... maybe by 2025.. They don0t seem to care about this whatsoever.

Is anyone responding to this? I have the same issue. How can this be resolved if so many people have the same problem?
