    Hello and thank you for the plugin.
    I’m currently developing a site on my dev machine to which I’m pulling posts from another site I own which is obviously live.
    Both use the AVADA theme.
    1. Is there anyway to use an AVADA native class for displaying the post, and if yes, how can I do this?
    2. Both sites are in Hebrew. The title and the image are displayed just fine but no authors or excerpt are displayed although defined correctly in the short code
    3. I’ve managed to style the post to display in 4 columns across the screen. However, as the titles vary in length the images are not aligned. How can I position the title BELOW the image?
    4. I’m not vary interested in using the jet-pack plugin. Is there another way to define the image sizes?
    Thank you and I really hope there’s a way to use AVADA’s native styling for this as this would probably solve most of these issues

    I don’t know what’s an AVADA native class, unfortunately. Google isn’t very helpful either. I would recommend getting in touch with the Avada support team to find out more.

    Depending on what that native class is, you may be able to use the wrapper_class shortcode parameter to add your own CSS class, or the jeherve_post_embed_article_layout filter to customize the layout of each article to add your own class. You can find out more about the different customizations you can make here:
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-customize-the-shortcode/

    no authors or excerpt are displayed although defined correctly in the short code

    The excerpt should appear if you’ve set the include_excerpt shortcode parameter and if your post has an excerpt.

    The author name is not displayed anywhere by default.

    How can I position the title BELOW the image?

    You can use CSS to customize the layout of each article, or use the jeherve_post_embed_article_layout to define your own markup if you’d like to change how things are displayed. You can check the plugin’s source code to find out how you can use that filter:
    https://github.com/jeherve/rest-api-post-embeds/blob/master/rest-api-post-embeds.php

    I’m not vary interested in using the jet-pack plugin. Is there another way to define the image sizes?

    You can use CSS to resize the images once they’ve been loaded, or you can use the jeherve_post_embed_featured_image filter to set up your own images. You could for example use the filter to get a different image size from the different image sizes available on the site you are getting the images from.

    Thank you for your reply.
    In “AVADA native class” I mean any class originating from the active theme on a wordpress installation. So let’s say there’s a theme class called “blog-column-display” or something. Can I use “wrapper_class=”blog-column-display” as a parameter in the short code?
    If there’s no excerpt definition in the settings and the theme it self has a function for it, do I have to define it?
    Thanks
    Itsik

    You can, but I am not sure how that would help you style the post list better. Give it a try.

    If there’s no excerpt definition in the settings and the theme it self has a function for it, do I have to define it?

    That depends on how the theme works. If it uses its own custom excerpt and is not compatible with WordPress’ own excerpt functionality (that you can fill in thanks to the excerpt field in the WordPress post editor), it won’t appear in content that is pulled from the REST API.
