A list of included News Addons widgets follows:
Posts query controls
News widgets have posts query options which control which posts are shown.
Basic options are shared across news widgets. They control basic posts query parameters.
Limit – Set a number. This sets a number of how many posts will be displayed in the widget.
Order By – Posts order by is set with this option. WordPress has some basic ordering options that we can use for our posts disply.
Order – When order by is set, order sets the direction. So, it’s either ascending (ASC) or descending (DESC)
Post type – Choose post type to display. Default WordPress post type is “Posts”, but you can create custom post types. E.G. WooCommerce products are a post type, so you can use this plugin to display any post type that has a featured image, content and a title.
Post status – Default option is published. This means that only published posts can be displayed. However if you need something else, you can use this advanced option.
Filters – This is the most interesting section. Here you can make unlimited combinations of taxonomy filters, like categories, tags etc. Even custom taxonomies work.
Post in – If you know your post IDs and want to be specific, you can use this option to configure which posts to show.
Post not in – This option is the opposite of the previous option. It’ll exclude posts with set IDs.
Post offset – Post offset is an option to skip first set number of posts. This can be used if you have like two elements, one shows featured post and then you’d like to continue with a list feed, but you’d like to skip just the first post. Then you’d set here th 1 value and it’ll offset the posts loop by 1.
Meta – Like the Filters this option is interesting. It is used to set the meta query on posts. You can use custom keys, even dates and advanced stuff.
The styles tab provides options for styling elements that make news widgets.
The post style tab lets you customize post styles and appearance. In the styles post tab you can set elements styles. Item, H2 (heading), Exc (excerpt), Meta (meta information) and Img (image) are available.
The pagination style tab lets you customize pagination styles and appearance. In the styles pagination tab you can set pagination elements styles. Container and Buttons are available.
The container style tab lets you customize posts container styles and appearance.
The nav style tab lets you customize posts navigation styles and appearance on some elements like carousel, tabs or slider.
One row – If checked, this option will make a heading in one row and hide the overflow. Three dots will appear at the end of line.
HTML tag – Select HTML tag for the heading.
Show excerpt – If checked, this option will make a heading in one row and hide the overflow. Three dots will appear at the end of line.
Excerpt length – This number defines the excerpt length. Excerpt is actually the post content that appears below the heading. This figure sets the words length of it.
Show meta – Turning this option to No hides whole meta bar from display.
Hide meta – If meta is shown you can set which meta should be displayed. So, if you need to hide the author information, you would choose Author in the multi-select option.
Pagination – Select pagination type here. There are 3 pagination types available. Load more, numbers pagination (default) and the left and right arrows.
Types of pagination
Load more typically loads more posts at the end of posts widget that is already on page. This type of pagination will only add more posts and will not remove the old ones.
This is the default WordPress pagionation. Shows numbers for each page. So, for instance if you have 100 posts in your blog and set a limit to 10, this pagination will display numbers from 1-10 on the bottom of the posts widget. Clicking a number will remove the currently shown posts and will show new posts instead.
Arrow left and arrow right are displayed if this option is choosen. Clicking right takes you to the next page of posts. Old posts are removed and a clickable arrow to left is then available to go back. It functions like a carousel navigation.
