Post Tiles gives the ability to display posts as tiles. The tiles are color coded by category. The appearance is similar to windows 8 (Windows Metro).
Post tiles allows you to use the shortcode [post-tiles] on any page or post and displays a grid of posts in a tile format. (Live Preview)
By default 8 posts are displayed. To change the amount of posts to display on the page, use the posts=' ' attribute in the shortcode. Example: [post-tiles posts='10']
By default all post categories are called for the tiles. To specify the categories use the categories=' ' attribute separating them by commas. Example: [post-tiles categories='1,2,4']
By default the tiles use the excerpt trimmed to 20. You can specify your excerpt length with the excerpt=' ' attribute. Example: [post-tiles excerpt='18']
NOTE: The category id numbers are listed below, next to the category names. You can use both the categories and posts attributes Example: [post-tiles categories='1,2,4' posts='8' excerpt='18']
