Alimo Posts Listing
This element allows you to easily add your posts to a page using one of Alimo’s listing layouts – Standard, Masonry, Grid, Interlaced or Interlaced Full.
As with all the other elements, you can find it under the LayerBlend tab in either the Backend or Frontend Editor of the WPBakery Page Builder (Visual Composer) and the options are pretty self explanatory but we’ll go through the available settings here.
The General tab allows you to define the following settings :
Listing type – based on this setting, your posts will be displayed in one of the available layouts that come with Alimo. You can choose whichever you like and see which fits best in the page you’re creating.
Number of posts per row – this option appears only if you’ve selected either Grid or Masonry listing types and allows you to define how many posts you want to show per row. To keep things neat and tidy, we’ve limited the available options from 1 to 4 columns max.
Select Categories – this option allows you to filter the posts and choose one or more categories from which the posts should be displayed. The field uses an autocomplete feature, so just start typing and you should see your categories pop up in the suggestion box.
The Data Settings tab allows you to define the following settings :
Number of posts to show – this option limits the number of posts retrieved by the listing. By default, the latest 10 posts will be displayed. Change it if you’d like or leave it empty to show all found posts.
Ignore sticky posts – if there are posts within the query result that are part of sticky posts, WordPress will push them to the top of the query result, adding them to the number of posts to show set. The default settings is to not add sticky posts at top, they show up according to their order.
Order by – Choose to sort the found posts either by date or by title. The default is by date.
Sort order – Once sorted, you can set a sort order: ascending or descending.
The Design Options tab
The options found here allow you to define settings related to the posts listing wrapper and works the same way as it does for the default Page Builder elements. It’s useful in case you want to set a specific padding or margin to achieve a desired alignment with other elements.
