    When I try to use the post grid function, so I can put blog entries on the blog section of my website, it loads up content from another page on my website (music releases) but in a blog format that isn’t editable. Is there a way of adding a blank post grid element to the page that I can purt my own pic, text in?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi,

    The post grid element relies on the content from existing posts such as it’s featured image, excerpt, etc. Unfortunately, it does not support adding a custom image. In this case, you can use an element such as single image to add a custom image and add a link to it which will point to the required post.

    Thanks,

    Hi Rohan, thanks for the reply. Okay, I’ve managed to put a single image in the blog section but what I want to do now is put a blog entry title below, then have a few words explaining what the blog entry is about, then a “read more” button” which will then open up the whole blog entry in full, on another page. Is this possible?

    Here is the page I would want that to happen on: https://djalkemy.co.uk/news

    Hi, You can use text element to add title and description and a button element for read more. Using button linking, you can then link it to the post that you want.

    Hi Rohan, thanks for your continued support. I’ve tried adding a text element and adding a read more button but the read more button doesn’t show and also, the textjust goes right across the screen and looks real untidy. Basically, I want a functionable blog similar to this page: https://www.godisinthetvzine.co.uk/category/news/

    I want to be able to put a picture up, with a little introduction, with a “read more” button that you click to take you to the whole blog entry. I’d like it so the blog entry opens up on the other page in full and has share buttons etc at the end as well as blog entry dates etc.

    I’m getting confused as to how to implement this function on my website.
