Display Posts allows you easily list content from all across your website. Start by adding this shortcode in the content editor to display a list of your most recent posts:

[display-posts]

Filter by Category

To only show posts within a certain category, use the category parameter:

[display-posts category="news"]

Display as Post Grid

You can create a great looking, column-based grid of posts with a bit of styling. Here’s how!

List Popular Posts You can highlight your popular content in multiple ways. If you want to feature the posts with the most comments, use:

[display-posts orderby="comment_count"]

You can also list most popular posts by social shares.

Include thumbnails, excerpts, and more The display parameters let you control what information is displayed for each post. To include an image and summary, use:

[display-posts include_excerpt="true" image_size="thumbnail"]

You can use any image size added by WordPress (thumbnail, medium, medium_large, large) OR any custom image size added by your theme or other plugins.

Sort the list however you like By default the listing will list the newest content first, but you can order by title, menu order, relevance, content type, metadata, and more.

List upcoming events You can easily list upcoming events from any event calendar. Each plugin will require slightly different code.

Here are tutorials for popular event calendar plugins. If your plugin is not listed here, submit a support request and I’ll add it!
