Post Cards Element

Last Update: June 4, 2023

The Post Cards Element works in conjunction with individual Post Cards, which are created and designed through the Avada Builder Library. Basically, a Post Card is a custom layout template for various post types including Blog posts, Portfolio posts, FAQs, Events and WooCommerce Products. Using the Post Cards Element, the individual Post Cards can then be displayed in Grids, Carousels, or Sliders in your pages and Layouts.

How To Use The Post Cards Element

The Post Cards Element is used to display a custom post type grid, slider or carousel, based on the design on an individual Post Card, and post type options. So before you can use the Post Cards Element, you need to create at least one Post Card. This is done through the Avada builder Library. See the How To Use Post Cards In Avada doc for more information on this process.

Once you have created your Post Card, you can use the Post Cards Element to display the layout on a page. Simply add the Element to a page, and configure the options to display your chosen post type in your chosen layout.
