Customizing the Blog Layout Page Builder Block

Your WashU Web Theme site can have multiple blogs and news pages. Create news pages (and blogs) by adding the blog layout module into the Page Builder. To specify the display settings, follow the step-by-step instructions.

Customizing the Blog Layout Page Builder Block

  1. Add any heading text to appear right above your news items/blog posts (optional).
  2. Select the specific categories of news/blog posts to display in the Data Source section.
  3. Select what Number of posts to display by moving the slider button.
  4. Define the Excerpt length by moving the slider button. Enable Pagination Links should be enabled if you have a large number of news posts; otherwise, it can remain on the default Disable option.
  5. Determine the Element Layout, which defines how the news post excerpts and images are displayed.
  6. Display LightBox Link may be enabled if you have large or particularly compelling images that accompany your news posts; otherwise, select Disable.
