Elementor Pro Updates Never Show in MainWP

Elementor Pro updates are not appearing in MainWP. I first saw this issue on Elementor Pro 2.9.2 and it continues with 2.10.3. Elementor Support has been very reluctant to really investigate.

Similar issue occured with Ultimate Addons for Elementor and Brain Force (developer) found a conflict with iThemes security. They reported this to iThemes support & it appears to be fixed now as UAE 1.25.1 applied correctly.

Here’s the scenario…

WordPress dashboard mirrors what MainWP shows for updates & Elementor Pro never shows in either for me. If you log into the actual WordPress dashboard, hit check updates again, Elementor Pro will show. If you resync MainWP with child site, Elementor Pro shows but will not update using MainWP.

If you then deactivate iThemes, resync MainWP with the Child, and apply updates — success. Elementor Pro updates to 2.10.3.

To me, this appears to be a conflict iThemes & Elementor Pro but maybe it’s a MainWP issue. Elementor has agreed to elevate this to their Tier 3 team but have been very reluctant to engage. Their initial response was to refresh my updates & apply from the WordPress dashboard (i.e. log into every site I use Elementor Pro & update manually – not helpful & really defeats the purpose of using MainWP.

Hi @CurtE, some of my clients use Elementor Pro and I can update them via MainWP Dashboard without any issues. But I’m not using iThemes, because I’ve seen more issues with that plugin in the past. Wordfence Security has been my choice for years now.

Hi @CurtE,

everything looks fine in the system report.

It’s really strange issue. There is custom support added for Elementor Pro, so updates should be working fine.

Can you please check if the update has been added to the Ignore list by accident?

Thank you - I’ve had a few individuals from my hosting firm suggest moving away from iThemes as well. I’ve used it for 2-3 years without issue but something has definitely changed in the last 6 months (at least with the paid plug-ins I use).

Thank you – Just confirmed that I don’t have anything in the ignore list. I firmly believe this is a conflict with iThemes and we’ll see if Elementor Pro is able to get them engaged.
