📚 Create Content > Blocks > Articles

Purpose: dynamically pulls out Posts and sorts them on a publication date base. Posts are pulled out based on:

Posts can also be sorted manually – this feature will override the automatic functionality of the block. For good user experience, it is recommended to include at least three articles.

Add the block to your page

The block is automatically added at the end of Posts and can be manually added in Pages by selecting in the Planet 4 blocks menu

Customize the block

The following fields can be edited for the articles block:

The title, the description and the button text to load more results can be edited right inside the block. The rest of the options have been moved to the menu on the right side.

The preview is static: tags and links are not clickable in the preview window in the backend so that it is clear which elements are editable or not.

Manual override of posts

If you want specific pieces of content to be pulled out, you can customize the order with specific posts. In this case the posts will be displayed in order of publication date, most recent displayed on the top.

KEY INFO >> The “manual override” command is available only if both “tags” and “post types” fields are empty

Once this field is being used, the tags and post types fields are unavailable.
