  • I have searched for similar issues in both open and closed tickets and cannot find a duplicate.
  • The issue still exists against the latest stable version of Elementor.


Steps to reproduce

  1. Install and activate Elementor and Classic Editor.
  2. Create two users with 'contributor' role.
  3. Have admin and contributors make a draft and pending posts with classic editor. (3 users x 2 posts = 6 total posts)
  4. Login in with one of the contributors accounts.
  5. Visit the 'Posts' page. Click 'edit' for draft/pending posts from the other two users.


  1. The user can view the content of pending/draft posts from other users.


Expected behavior:

User should not be able to view the content of pending/draft post for other users when they click on 'edit'.

Isolating the problem

  • This bug happens with only Elementor plugin active (and Elementor Pro).
  • This bug happens with a default WordPress theme active.
  • I can reproduce this bug consistently using the steps above.
