Hi,

I have a blog home page where I want to add a section that displays a summary of my last 3 blog posts.

I want it to look like the "From The Blog" section on this home page.

Can this be done in Themler?

Thanks

Next time write what CMS do you use.

For Post limit:

function limit_posts_on_homepage( $query ) {
    if ( $query->is_home() && $query->is_main_query() ) {
        $query->set( 'posts_per_page', 3 );
    }
}
add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'limit_posts_on_homepage' );

To choose from what Category:

function my_home_category( $query ) {
 if ( $query->is_home() && $query->is_main_query() ) {
 $query->set( 'cat', '11');
 }
}
add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'my_home_category' );

Or multiple:

$query->set( 'cat', '11', '14');

Next time write what CMS do you use. **For Post limit:** function limit_posts_on_homepage( $query ) { if ( $query->is_home() && $query->is_main_query() ) { $query->set( 'posts_per_page', 3 ); } } add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'limit_posts_on_homepage' ); **To choose from what Category:** function my_home_category( $query ) { if ( $query->is_home() && $query->is_main_query() ) { $query->set( 'cat', '11'); } } add_action( 'pre_get_posts', 'my_home_category' ); **Or multiple:** $query->set( 'cat', '11', '14');

Thanks for your reply again, thing is I'm not a coder so I don't understand which part of the code I need to add to the CMS Code editor.

Could you send any screen shots of what you mean?

Many thanks for your help so far :-)

They are codes for Post limit and from what Category you want to show Posts. Say 3 Posts from category named Blog, Category ID = 145. If you want to show all latest Posts skip Category snippet.

Rest (layout & design) you make visually with Themler. Cannot explain more, it is in Documentation and matter of practicing.

Hi,

Unfortunately there is no possibility to do it without using the custom code.
