Blogging is core WordPress functionality, and with Avada, we have added many ways to get the most out of this core custom post type. For a full rundown on how to blog, in conjunction with Avada, please see the full series of Blog Post type documentation here.
A great way to add blog posts to a page however, is to use the Blog Element. This is a fantastic method to use, because it allows you to place your blog posts on any page, select any of our layouts, assign custom categories to display, and so much more. Using the Blog Element gives you the flexibility to add a blog feed on any page, and indeed, anywhere on the page. Each Blog element can have a different set of categories, layouts and other unique blog settings. It’s also great to use if you want to only display a few posts on a page along with other content. Before you can display blog posts, you must, of course, first create them.
Read on to find out about all the options for this Element, and watch the video for a visual overview.
How To Use The Blog Element
The Blog Element is a versatile way to add blog posts anywhere on your site. Simply add the Element to your desired Column.
Once you have added the element it’s time to configure the Blog element to your liking. This is where the action happens. The Blog Element comes with 7 different blog layouts for you to choose from. They can then all be customized to your liking. To view the possibilities of this element, make sure you visit the Blog Element Demo page. There are way too many options to go through for this element, but if you start with your preferred layout, and then slowly go down the options list, customizing its appearance to suit your wishes, you will soon get the blog page you are looking for! There is almost nothing that cannot be customized, and it is a very versatile way to add blogs to a page.
Note: The Default setting will use the global settings assigned for this element at Options > Avada Builder Elements > Blog. Also, please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
