    Hey all,

    I am VERY new so I apologize if what I am asking may have been answered or is incredibly obvious to everyone else.

    I”m using Elementor Pro and GeneratePress Premium as my first attempt.

    I have used the post widget (from Elementor Pro) to create cards for my posts and they are displaying beautifully.

    The problem comes after someone clicks on the ‘READ MORE’ button which goes to a page that contains the full contents of the article.

    I can’t seem to edit THAT page layout.

    How can I do so?

    Is it even possible to do so?

    Any workarounds?

    Hi there,

    Hmm that sounds like the single post page which you should be able to edit with the Elementor.

    Can you link me to one of those pages so we can be sure?

    Thanks!

    Hey Leo,

    I found out that the post page is heavily reliant on different footers/ content area/ and sidebar widgets, which makes it a little harder to wiggle around.

    All of these I will learn, I’m just wondering, how can I remove or edit these highlighted portions which are part of the post ‘widget’ I presume?

    You can hide the date, author, categories and tags using the customizer: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/blog-overview/

    Option to hide post navigation will be in the future release. For now try this CSS:

    .post-navigation {
        display: none;
    }

    Adding CSS: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/adding-css/

    Let me know.

    Hey Leo, It’s okay, Im slowly finding out the answers via scouring the interwebs.

    I now have a new question on mobile responsive portion:

    I’m wondering if there’s any way of presenting that in a better way through css?

    I found out how to edit it via searching online using css but I’m not sure of the best practices

    Hmm the above CSS should’ve hidden that. Or do you actually want to show it?

    If so can you link me to the page?

    Looks like you added these CSS?

    .cat-links,
    .nav-previous {
        float: left;
    }
    
    .tags-links,
    .nav-next {
        float: right;
    }
    
    .post-navigation {
        clear: both;
    }
    
    .site-main .post-navigation {
    margin-top: 20px;
    margin-left: 20px;
    margin-right: 20px;
    font-size: 20px;
    font-weight: bold;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    }
    
    .nav-previous,
    .cat-links {
    float: left;
    font-family: "EB Garamond"
    }
    
    .nav-next,
    .tags-links {
    float:right;
    font-family: "EB Garamond"
    }

    The default style should be pretty good for mobile?

    Yup, I copied it from looking through the forums.

    However, when the title becomes too long, it starts to overlap like in the screenshot I showed you.

    Is there a way to do the following:

    “I was wondering if i can enclose it in a button you know? make it look nice and have a max character of 10 so it doesnt mess up the formatting on phones”

    Any help will be appreciated!

    You could try something like this:

    .single .post-navigation a {
        display: inline-block;
        background: #222;
        color: #fff;
        padding: 5px 10px;
        margin: 10px 0;
    }
    
    .single .post-navigation a:hover {
        background: #000;
        color: #fff;
    }
    
    .nav-next .next:before,
    .nav-previous .prev:before {
        display: none;
    }
    
    @media (max-width: 768px) {
        .nav-previous, .nav-next {
            float: none;
        }
    }
