But the problem with embedding videos inside blog content is, it is static and stays fixed to a certain position. Scrolling ahead of the video means, you no longer see the video. In order to continue watching the video, you have to scroll back up to the section where the video is placed.

Wouldn't this be really frustrating to schedule a content for your website and then only to find out that it hasn't been published at all? This is actually not a very uncommon issue among WordPress users. Now, imagine if there was a plugin to automatically prevent this from happening and keeping everything organized? Well, that's exactly what you can do with WP Scheduled Posts Pro. In this article, we are going to give you a brief on how to manage the missed schedule error in WordPress. The Reason Behind Missed Schedule Error
To run unattended scheduled tasks, WordPress uses Cron job for these sorts of events. By default, “wp_cron” function takes care of this.
How the Cron job works is that each content you schedule is saved in the database with your set time. The event is only triggered when you have a visitor on your website. When someone comes to your site, it checks whether there's an event scheduled or not. If yes, only then it publishes the content.
That's where the problem lies especially if your site has a limited number of visitors. Suppose, if no one visits your website during that time interval, the scheduled event is not going to get triggered. As a result, your

But he claimed to do it in Beaver Builder, with all due respect to their talented developer, here at WPDeveloper, we are a big fan of Elementor, so I pinged our main guy, (My partner, and CEO of WPDevloper), Rupok, is it possible to do it? He said he could do it in 30min, I challenged him to make that and share with me. And you know what happened after I came back from little shopping & Brunch in Orchard Road? He sent me this!
Developer asked for Dashboard access, and you are thinking if you should change your account password or create a new account and share? That day is over. This is step by step guide you should bookmark.
This is a common scenario when you need to give your Developer access to your WordPress Dashboard. Sharing your own admin account is so back-dated and risky, and creating another account and managing that is also troublesome. But thanks to amazing WordPress Community (Especially my friend Drew Jaynes) we have a smart solution now. Sometimes it could be theme developer or plugin developer, or even hosting support guys, that you might need to share Dashboard access for support purpose. You have 100% right to be skeptic, though probably 99% time it won’t have any risk. WordPress Community itself is obviously very giving and helps each other. If a free theme or plugin developer asked for Dashboard access for giving you support, this is already very generous for him. So doubting him also makes the situation looks weird. So, here we have a smart solution.
Problems with Old Method:
Before jumping into the solution lets talk about possible risk with old methods.
# Sharing your own admin account is always risky, it could be a complete mess if it been shared with wrong people, you could loose access completely.
# If you create a temporary admin account and share that, you have to remember,

Elementor introduced Inline Text Editing few days ago, this post shows how it works.
Kudos to the Elementor team. On 7th of November, 2017 Elementor 1.8.0 was released. Now with their latest feature upgrade, you can streamline the process of page-building. You may wonder, how? With the latest version of Elementor, you get in-line editing feature. You get it with both the free and pro version. This feature was much anticipated as it completely upgrades how you write content in the page-builder interface. Combine this with the feature-rich widgets and you have a lethal weapon.
Is it Limited to Just Text-Widgets?
Elementor offers widgets of different types. And without any doubt, you can use the in-line editing feature with every Text-Widget. But do you need this feature for every other widget type? Definitely not! In-line editing suits specific widget types.
For example, the Flip-Box widget is heavily content-based. So you should be able to enjoy the in-line editing with this widget, right? Well, even if you had that chance, you won’t enjoy it. The Flip-Box Widget gives you two canvases inside a certain section area. And as you hover your mouse over the widget it will switch back and forth between these two canvases. Think of these two canvases as two opposite sides
You can add custom scripts to your WordPress websites using a plugin and perhaps it's the best and safest way if you trust the plugin. When you don't need the scripts, you can take off them and disable the plugin. There are few plugins in WordPress repository but none of them using Customizer feature. So you need to add them from WordPress Dashboard, save script and check back the pages to test the functionality. Since I often need to add some scripts to add interactivity or custom features, I felt it should use the Customizer so that it could be tested on the fly. So I built a fresh new plugin for this and released for free on the WordPress repository. You can check Custom Header Footer Scripts for Customizer
