"I'm attempting to edit pages that use the Elementor Editor plugin on our symposium website ( but for an unknown reason, the update/publish button seems to have vanished from the editor. I have tried searching for help on Elementor's website and used different browsers (disabled extensions) with no luck."

Screenshot attached. They have been using Elementor for a while now, and I'm convinced this isn't user error

Another user reported the same issue via ZenDesk and email, and she was able to determine that the button was being rendered just off the bottom of the screen. This allowed me to determine that a recent change in Elementor (apparently connected to hiding the WP admin bar) caused a conflict with some of our custom styling related to the admin bar. I've just put a hotfix in place that appears to solve the problem:

Thanks. Who was the other user? I'm not seeing it on ZD
