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.
title: there is a default setting (for the EN sites, this is set to Latest articles). You can change and rename this field differently in place, inside the block
description: add a description for the latest articles block
button text: if you choose this block to link to a different page or post, you can add a button, therefore you need to edit this field. There is a default setting for this as well – Load more
button link: here you should add the URL of the post/ page
open in a new tab: tick this if you want the post/ page to open in a new page. If you want the user not to navigate on a different tab, then leave this field un-ticked
articles count: how many articles you want to be displayed in this block
select tags: by adding specific tags, the corresponding content will be pulled
post types: here you determine what type of post you want to be pulled in this specific block: either story, press release, publication or any other type of post there is available on the site
ignore categories: by default, the block will only display posts from the same category the post/page is assigned to. This option is about ignoring that rule and showing everything
manual override: this is used if you want specific pieces of content to be pulled, so you will have to look for specific titles. Once this field is being used, the tags and post types fields are unavailable
the block also has a Preview section where you can check, considering the options you choose, what content will be pulled
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.
