Adding read more in Elementor is fairly easy. But first, there are a few steps that you must take for it to be added smoothly.
To get started, go to the “Settings” option on the left menu and select “Reading.”
In the Reading Settings, select the “static page” option for the “Your homepage displays” section, then select one page each for the two drop-down menus below. Once done, click on “Save Changes.”
Now, go to the post where you would like to add a read more widget.
Click on the “Edit with Elementor” button.
In the Elementor editor, search for the “Read more” widget.
From there, drag it below the text where you want to place it.
You can change the text displayed in the widget using the settings on the left.
Now, add a “Text editor” widget below the “Read more” widget.
Then, cut a portion of the text above and paste it into the Text editor.
Once done, hit on the “Update” button.
To see the changes, go to the “Posts Page” that you selected in the Reading Settings earlier. There, you can see the “Read more” widget applied to your post.
