One of the most commonly known issues of every Page Builder is what they call the “white screen of death”. No one can resist the frustration once a page gets “stuck in a loading screen” and all that is left is a blank page. What’s more frustrating is that there are a lot more reasons why this happens, which doesn’t make it any less tedious to troubleshoot.
Following are a few solutions to resolve this issue.
1. Our initial suggestion is to simply clear your browser or test it on a new incognito (or private) window.
2. Try also changing your WP theme because there are some that are not compatible with Elementor. Astra or OceanWP is few of the best themes that are compatible with it.
3. Sometimes, you’ll get this “stuck on loading screen” issue on a page due to a resulting conflict from an add-on or extension installed on your browser. In this case, you can switch to any other browser you prefer, such as Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera or Google Chrome.
4. If none of the solutions suggested above worked, continue reading this Elementor tutorial by using the option “Switch Front-end Editor Loader Method”.
Step 1: On your Dashboard look for Elementor > Settings.
Step 2: Under Settings, there are the options: General, Style, Integrations and Advanced settings. Go and click “Advanced”.
Step 3: Under the Advanced settings, look for “Switch Editor Loader Method” and then enable it by toggling it to “Enable”.
Step 4: Then click “Save Changes”. Check Elementor if the issue has already been solved.
Step 5. If you encountered a issue saying “the preview cannot be loaded”, maybe there’s is a problem with the compatibility of themes you are using within Elementor.
So, I suggest you to look for the Top 10 Best Themes for the Elementor Page Builder that surely have compatibility on Elementor Builder. You can choose any of these theme but I’m currently using OceanWP Child that works just perfectly fine.
Step 6. There is another option to fix Elementor “stuck on loading screen” if maybe there’s a conflict with another plugin installed within the theme.
In this case, try disabling each plugin installed on your WordPress site to figure out which one is causing the issue.
Step 1: To do this, go to your WordPress Dashboard > Plugins
Step 2: Here are all plugins that I installed to my wordpress. As you can see, I checked all my plugins EXCEPT Elementor Pro. I’ll then “deactivate” it and click “apply”.
Note: Check if the issue has been solved. If it’s not, you can return those plugins to “activate” and repeat this procedure to the next plugin.
Although there are a lot of steps to follow in this tutorial you can often just try the first suggested solution and it’s likely that it’ll be fixed.
I hope this helps! Happy troubleshooting!? 🙂
