    Hi Vako, hope you are keeping well my friend.

    Encountered an issue with a static homepage (setup correctly with a separate blog page and both pages linked in Customize > Homepage).

    So, on my homepage I tried to add the latest posts block to include just 3 posts with an excerpt of 33 words. I update the homepage and actually see the entire first section of text, far beyond 33 words?

    Help ūüėČ

    Hi Steve,

     

    Weird, In order to assist we need to check your website from the back end, please install this 3rd party plugin ‚ÄúTemporary Login Without Password Plugin‚ÄĚ which allows us to access your dashboard without sharing access details.

    Hi Steve,

     

    Seems that you are using the Gutenberg widget it has some issue and has no reaction to the theme excerpt.

    We can share shortcodes use them to display your blog post on the custom home page.

    With the theme and WordPress settings, you can only have one blog page at the same time, but I can give you shortcodes to have blog posts on the home page and on the blog page too.

    To display all latest post use:

    [ashe_blog]

    To select specific categories in the blog feed shortcode, you just need to add the ‚Äúcategories‚ÄĚ attribute to it. You can list multiple categories separated by a comma:

    [ashe_blog categories=”food,travel”]

    or select a single one like this:

    [ashe_blog categories=”food”]

    Also, posts per page could be limited by adding the ‚Äúamount‚ÄĚ attribute‚ÄĚ like this:

    [ashe_blog categories=”food” amount=”5″]

    To select specific posts in the blog feed shortcode, you just need to add the ‚Äúpost_ids‚ÄĚ attribute to it and list selected post ids separated by a comma like this:

    [ashe_blog post_ids=”1,23,157″]

    Hope it was helpful.

     

    Kind Regards

    Thanks Vako, I don’t think this will work.

    Couple of initial issues; when I use the [ashe-blog] shortcode on the homepage the posts aren’t formatted i.e. the blog page shows each post with a nice border, while [ashe-blog] doesn’t.

    Also, the amount=”2″ attribute doesn’t limit posts on the page to 2 (which would have been ideal). It actually adds a second page with pagination at the bottom :/ So I guess when I’ve built 20 posts or more my front page would be paginated or very long? ..and not ideal for the front page.

    My ambition was simply to show the last two (or four) blog posts on the static frontpage, in the same format as the blog page. I guess that’s not going to be possible easily?

    Thanks for your time Vako, I sincerely appreciate you help trying to fix this.

    Hi Steve,

     

    Actually, the amount of works just breaks the page into 2 pages and enables pagination. I will redirect this topic to the developer’s board and they will contact you.

     

    Kind Regards
