I’m having this same problem and I did what you said but the text is not positioning itself as I would like. I want the image to the left and the title/excerpt to the right of the image. Currently it is sitting beneath it.
I’ve used another plugin (that works) but it is a BEAR to configure so decided I’d try Show Posts. I’m choosing “Image alignment = left” and image location = Above title.” And that is exactly how the post displays…which isn’t what I want.
Anyway to make this happen? It’s the first post on the page that is using Show Posts plugin. The one below it is using another plugin that I’d like to move away from.Elementor has a bug displaying the posts in this configuration on mobile devices which is why I’m even bothering to find a solution outside of Elementor.
