This widget displays and automatically generated list of files from your site. The options are very similar to those found in List of Posts.
Three options to sort your files:
You can select the File Type from all to a particular content type - Images, video, document, etc. * Lists that display only images and videos are special and will include a thumbnail of these items.
You can control how much of that information you want to showcase in Display Style.
You also have a variety of choices as to how you want that information to be sorted in Sorted By.
Show “more” link provides a link to additional content beyond what the list of files can display.
Show Pager option allows you to scroll through several pages worth of content in a single list box.
Number of items to display controls how many items will be shown in this box. It ranges from 1 to 20.
Filter By Vocabularies
Make sure that you have a vocabulary set up before this operation. How?
Just like in the List of Posts widgets you can also filter by vocabularies. A file needs to match one of the terms under each vocabulary option.
If you have a department site with sub-sites, then the Include results from option will become available. This means that instead of showing results only from your own site, you can show posts from your sub-sites as well.
In this example, videos are being ordered in a List of Files widget below the content on the page.
