The Elementor Pro Posts widget does not have an option to add ellipses to the end of the post excerpt. Yes, there is the Read More link but it looks odd especially when the excerpt does not end with a period.

This is remedied by adding the following CSS. You can add it to Dashboard > Appearance > Customize > Additional CSS or with the Simple CSS plugin, which is what I use.

.elementor-post__excerpt p:after {
content: " ...";

    Quick question.
    The excerpt is showing the title in the body with the effect that the title is repeated.
    Any chance I can make CSS and limit the excerpt only to to remove the title which is in ?
    Your help will be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

      Hi Joshua,
      Not really sure why that would be happening nor how to remove it. Let me do some testing and I’ll post back when I find something.

    Can I just say I love you! I’ve spent so many hours trying to make so many things work on my site, and so many videos make it complicated. When I came to this problem, I figured it would be the same. But in five minutes of watching your video, I copied your code, pasted it exactly where you told me to, and voila! It worked! Thank you!!
