Note: When Elementor displays a post, if it has no excerpt, Elementor automatically generates an excerpt from the post’s content. The Excerpt Length option allows you to control the length of this auto-generated excerpt. However, the excerpt length only applies to posts in which no manual excerpt has been entered. The length specified in the Elementor widget is ignored if a manually-generated excerpt exists for a post. 

Pagination and AJAX Load More

Pagination Options: From the dropdown selector choose how you wish to paginate the results. Options include None, Numbers, Previous/Next, Numbers + Previous/Next, Load On Click, or Infinite Scroll.

AJAX Load More is the ultimate design technique to display large amounts of content in an intuitive and appealing way either by loading more posts on click or enabling infinite scroll. Infinite scroll is a web design technique that loads content seamlessly as the user scrolls down a page. Content is automatically and continuously loaded at the bottom of the page, eliminating the need for pagination. You can use this on the posts widget by selecting the Load on Click or Infinite Scroll pagination options.
