Featuring Blog Posts on Your Word Press Home Page
A feature of WordPress that drives me crazy is that you can have a static home page or you can have a page that features your blog posts. I have always wanted both…I want a home page with the information I want displayed and my blog posts in a grid layout.
I have tried a number of methods using short codes and other html commands, but this usually proved to be frustrating and didn’t work at all. It never looked or functioned like I wanted—it was too much work and overhead rather than an automated solution. Again, I am the “Easy Button” type and this wasn’t working for me. No “easy button method” was available it seemed.
The Blog Post Display Easy Button
After some exhaustive searches online I finally found a WordPress plugin that I felt like would fit the bill for allowing me to display my blog’s posts on the home page in the grid display that I desired. I found the plugin that is called, “Content Views – Post Grid & List for WordPress”.
This plugin has proven itself to be very easy and useful. I really like and use it frequently. Here is an example of it being used on my website.
How to use the Content Views – Post Grid & List for WordPress
I don’t add that category to every post. I just add that Category to the posts that I want displayed on the home page.
You are now ready to place your Content View Grid on your home page (or whatever page you want).
Hope this works for you like it does me. I really like how easy it is and how it gives me the control to place the content views wherever I want them to be displayed on my website.
