How to Tag The Post Excerpt Widget for Figma to Elementor?

Table of Contents

If you are showing post excerpts on the post template in your Figma design, then you can tag those elements as an Elementor Post Excerpt widget using the UiChemy plugin.

So when you export the design as an Elementor template, that particular section will use the Elementor Post Excerpt widget.

What Can be Tagged?

A frame containing a text can be tagged as an Elementor Post Excerpt widget.

Note: Since this is a dynamic widget only the style will be exported not the content.

How to Tag?

Select the top level frame of your layout then select the Optimize & Convert option and click the Optimize & Convert button.

Now select the frame or container containing the post excerpt text in your design and click on the Widget Tags tab in the UiChemy panel.

Then search for post excerpt and click on the Post Excerpt widget from Elementor Pro.

Note: You need to have a UiChemy Pro license to tag Elementor Pro widgets.

On the next screen, you’ll get the information of which element you are tagging as what widget.

Then you’ll see widget specific tagging options.

  1. In the Text field, the text will be auto selected.
  2. Then click on the Save button to complete the tagging.

Now if you export the design, that element will use the Elementor Post Excerpt widget with your style.

Note: Since this is a pro widget make sure the Elementor pro plugin is installed and activated. You might have to make some minor adjustments in the widget settings to match the design, especially those elements that are not tagged.
