I’m using the free version of Elementor to build out one of my posts. I would like use the ‘read more’ link but it doesn’t seem to work or show up when I preview the page.
I have been just using GP Pro on all of my other posts (and the ‘read more’ link works fine) but thought I’d try Elementor because of the many layout and block options… but if I can’t use the ‘read more’ button I will not be able to use Elementor
The post I’ve been working on is not live, so it will not be visible on the live siteAugust 29, 2019 at 7:51 am #996413DavidStaffCustomer Support
to the best of my knowledge Elementor just adds the More tag function the same as what WordPress adds so there shouldn’t be any issue.
Is it a case that the Read More is not showing in the blog?August 29, 2019 at 10:09 am #996524susan
Correct, it does not show in the blog and the content that should be cut off after the ‘read more’ is still showingAugust 29, 2019 at 10:47 am #996575DavidStaffCustomer SupportAugust 29, 2019 at 12:22 pm #996652susan
I agree with the sentiment on using page builders for posts, and I would be happy to not use one. What I am after is more control on how to display images next to text. For example the link I posted below shows the first image next to the text. This took a bit of css and media queries to get it to look right on mobile. Elementor had some of that functionality built it within the different types of blocks available. But the problem was getting the ‘read more’ link to work.
I am really open to suggestion on just using GP on its own and I have for all of my posts so far. I’d just like a more polished look over allAugust 29, 2019 at 12:22 pm #996653susan

Where are you wanting the read more link to show up? Typically those only show up on the archive pages – not the single posts.August 31, 2019 at 3:18 pm #998103susan
Yes, the archive page..I have decided not to use Elementor for posts until I have a better understanding of how it all works together.
I do appreciate all of the input so far
Thank you!August 31, 2019 at 6:29 pm #998160TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
When I go to the archives (the Food category for example), I’m seeing an orange read more button below each post. Is that not the link you’re wanting to add?
