  6. HTTPS missing

  7. Huge Page and loading times

Editing Elementor Pages When Service Worker is Enabled

When Service Worker is enabled in Vibebp - Settings - General. You are not able to edit the pages in Elementor. This happens as the service worker caches scripts and Elementor is not able to work properly. The quick fix is to unregister the service worker on the page while editing in elementor.

After clicking Unregister, reload the page and your page starts loading normally. This will work with all the page builders(whatever you are using).
