Click to start download
After installing and activating the plugin make sure all the widgets were added, go to Post Preview Card > Widgets and if any widget widget you want is not checked, simply check and save.
Using a page builder, open a page and click to edit with the page builder of your choice, I'll be using Elementor in the screenshoot. You will see the widgets installed in the bottom of the page builder widget list
Choose the widget you want and then drag and drop it. After this you will see a form to edit the widget. Each widget have different options and more customizable options will be added in future versions so the screenshoot might be outdated
That's it! This is the final result of a Multiple Posts widget showing only the first 3 posts of the blog. When the plus button is clicked more 3 posts will be loaded, without refreshing the entire page, until it displays the total number of posts specified.
YOU MUST CHECK MANUALLY THE WIDGETS YOU WANT TO INSTALL IN: post-preview-card settings menu -> widget tab
- Upload the plugin files to the
/wp-content/plugins/Post-Preview-Carddirectory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
- And that’s it! Simple as that. You can now use the widgets with your page builder.
- Go to the Post Preview Card settings menu and make sure you have all the widgets installed.
How can I know the Post id?
This plugin adds the ID column in your “All Posts” section on the wordpress admin panel. You can deactivate this by going to the general settings page of the plugin.
Installed the plugin and no widget were added?
Go to the Post Preview Card settings and go to Widgets and check the widgets you want to be installed.
