We've got a fresh Blog Element for you hot off the press! The new Post List is a cool widget you can add onto any page in the Editor. It comes in three different layouts and is a great way to get your readers to discover more posts and keep engaging with your content.
Here’s everything you need to know about the Post List:
Give visitors snippets of your blog posts
Basically, the post list acts as a preview of the posts on your blog, kind of like a mini blog feed. A great tip is to put it on the side of your post on the post page (in the sidebar). This catches the eyes of your readers and makes it easy for them to check out your other posts.
Show posts only in a specific category
You can even set your post list to show posts in a specific category, or display featured posts only. That way, your readers can quickly find other posts that may interest them.
For example, say your reader is reading your post about one of your favorite bands. On the side, they’ll see your post list, packed with all your posts related to music, or that one great featured post about Coachella that you’re especially proud of.
Plus! Once we release our upcoming tag feature, you’ll also be able to filter your posts by tag.
Two familiar layouts, one brand-new Slider layout
Choose from three different layouts: Classic, Editorial, and Slider. All of these have a lot of customization options, and, depending on which one you choose, you can:
Resize the post list
Fine-tune the height and width, spacing and padding
Change your image aspect ratio
The Classic layout is a revamped version of the post list on the old blog (which long-time bloggers may remember)--title and description on one side, and a thumbnail of your cover image on the other side. In Additional Image Settings, you can adjust the way the image is aligned and how much space it takes up.
The Editorial layout displays an image on top, text on bottom. It’s a gorgeous layout that uses all the customization power of the blog feed.
The Slider, one of our most requested layouts, lets you create a beautiful post slideshow. Click on the Additional Layout Settings to stick on arrows so your readers can browse through posts at their own pace.
We’ve heard your feedback and added pagination
Thanks to popular opinion, pagination is alive and well! In the Classic and Editorial layouts, you can add page numbers at the bottom of the post list so readers can scroll through the posts without the risk of cluttering up the page.
How to find the Post List:
Go to the Wix Editor’s sidebar on the left > + Add > Blog.
Choose from Post List (Editorial), Post List (Classic), and Post List (Slider).
Drag and drop it on any page.
