Add a New List of Posts Widget
To add a list of posts widget:
- Go to your Control Panel, click to expand Appearance, and select Layout.
- Select the green "Add new widget" tab
- Select the List of Posts posts widget
Widget Description is the administrative title (seen by site administrators only)
Widget Title is the what displays on the site
In the example below, we've opted to show News App content, to display a teaser (title and the first few sentences of the post) as well as the sort order. You can make changes to any of these display styles.
You can select vocabulary terms to filter by. For example, you include only news associated with Research
The more link will appear at the bottom of the widget. In this case, it defaults to show all news, but you can set the URL to any specific page. A pager will allow visitors to click an arrow to the next set of news items. In this case, 6 news items are shown per screen.
You have the ability to include posts from subsites. In this case "HWP Main Site" is the parent site and is checked by default. Checking the box for the subsites will include posts from those sites. Note: taxonomy term filtering is not currently available for subsite content.
Clicking "Make Embeddable" will allow other site administrator to get a code snippet to embed this widget content on other sites.
After you click Save, be sure to drag the List of Posts widget into your layout.
