Install Code Snippet plugin for the Elementor mobile column order code

If you prefer to not install any plugin, you can add the code to your theme's functions.php as well.

Here is why I recommend Code Snippet plugin instead.

Create a new Snippet, add this code, and active it

Go to the snippets option in the WordPress admin console and click on Add New.

			'selectors' => [
				'{{WRAPPER}}' => '-webkit-order: {{VALUE}}; -ms-flex-order: {{VALUE}}; order: {{VALUE}};',

    1. Yes, that will work as well! I think it's a better idea to use Code Snippets plugin though. It's easier to keep your snippets organized and to know what's going on, it stays on theme change, and it doesn't bloat the website at all. Recommended!

  1. After I updated to the latest version of Elementor 3.7, it not working!
    when on the edit page, it seems ok; but back to front end, the order not same as in preview.

  2. Hi. I tried to do the code snippet way, but when I activate the snippet it says

    "The snippet has been deactivated due to an error on line 2: Cannot redeclare function add_responsive_column_order."

    Can you help me please?
