JS API – Routes

Under Development

Please note that this feature is in development process, and this documentation is being updated frequently. Be sure you are updated. 


The new Routes API (since 2.7.0), provides a simple and convenient way to interact and manipulate Elementor’s panel UI, navigate the editor, as well as open & close many parts of the editor, using JS routes.

The full list of routes, including custom & 3rd routes, is available via:

$e.route( 'panel/elements/categories' );
