Support » Theme: Mantra » Display Latest Posts on Static Page

  • Resolved ness_lee1981


    I created a page, and set it to be the static homepage in settings > reading; it shows up fine(Mantra theme). However, I would like to display my 4 most recent posts below the static homepage content with thumbnail pictures (preferably just summary’s of each post).
    Can anybody help?
    Thank you in advance

  • I’m also looking for this. If I choose a post page template for the homepage nothing else shows up but the posts. It would be great if there was a way to add a number of posts at the bottom of the page, like on the presentation page.

    You can do this two ways:

    – use the latest posts widget, display it in ‘below content area’ and limit its view to only that specific page (homepage) via a conditional widgets plugin or Jetpack’s widget display options
    – use a latest posts plugin that provides a shortcode and include the shortcode in your static page; this may require additional CSS to properly format/position the posts.
