For each blog post published , a page is created. This page is automatically linked to the blog created for that language. Since it now is known which blog post contains what language, the blog list can search for every published blog post of the language you are currently in.
Adding or editing the block
When you add or edit the Blog List block, you see the form underneath.
With sort order, you can choose in which order the Blog Posts must be listed:
- Most Recent
- Earliest First
- Alphabetical, reversed
By checking on display sort option, the user gets the ability to sort the Blog Posts like he or she prefers.
Filtering & Display Options
In here, you can filter on tags. If you type the handle of the tag the blog has to contain, only those blog posts will show up. You can enter multiple tags. Then, blog posts that contain one or more of the selected tags will be visible. Underneath, you can choose what you want to display in this blog list by (un)checking the checkboxes:
- Main Image
- Publish Date
You can enter the amount of blog posts you want to show on your page under number of blog posts to display. By checking on the display pagination interface if more blog posts are available than are displayed, a pagination interface will appear if the amount of blog posts found is greater than the amount you entered in the field above. You also can choose how many posts per row you want to show. If you select 3, the block will obviously show all the published blog posts in three columns.
