How to create gradient progress bar using Elementor

Looking for a way to create a gradient progress bar using Elementor free? Here in this article, we will show you a guide to creating a gradient progress bar.

Elementor has progress bar widgets by default which you can use to create element levels. You can customize the progress bar with different colors and styles but the default Elementor widget will not allow you to add gradient color to it. You can only add a solid color to your progress element.

If you are a CSS expert then using the Elementor pro version you can add CSS to add a gradient color to your progress bar. But if you are not good at coding then you need to install extra addons or plugins to add gradient color style to the progress bar.

Things you need to create a gradient progress bar

  • Elementor – To customize your website without coding you need to install and activate the Elementor website builder plugin.
  • Absolute Addons – The Skill Bar widget is available in the Absolute Addons so you need to install and activate the plugin too.
