Blog List Widget

Blog List Widget

Last updated 11.03.22

The Blog List widget automatically displays all the blog posts in a list format of most recent first. Each list item includes a thumbnail photo and a synopsis and is clickable to the full blog post. The widget creates automatic pagination if the number of blog posts exceeds the maximum number of items displayed. Useful for a “view all” link in the Blog Feed widget.

To create and maintain one or several full-featured blogs for the website requires the use of the Blog Page Type and the Blog Month Page Type. Some thoughtfulness is required to get a blog system set up but the maintenance is simple and only requires a content creator.
