I am trying to display a list of posts in a webpage. See http://tivertonlibrary.org/wordpress/adults/ as an example. Unfortunately, I cant figure out how to embed a widget into the body of a webpage without a plugin. Currently, I’m using a plugin that makes a widget shortcode so you can embed that. It is faulty – A random dot shows up in the left corner, the author and comments show up below the title. I want it to look like http://tivertonlibrary.org/wordpress/ . Any thoughts?
That doesn’t really help in this case. I want to be able to make multiple pages display posts from different categories. I can use different plugins like Post Grid to do that. See http://tivertonlibrary.org/wordpress/adults/ but I was hoping to be able to insert a widget into the body of the webpage without using short code. Is that just not possible?
Sorry, to say that the feature which you have asked is not available in our theme.
But you can try using the plugin SiteOrigin page builder which will allow you to add our post widget in multiple pages. The link of the plugin is given below:
Thanks! That plugin helps a lot. Now I have the widgets in the body of the page. However, It is now showing the “authors name” and the “comments off” icons below the thumbnail pictures within the Featured Posts widget. See http://tivertonlibrary.org/wordpress/adults/ as an example. I would like it to look like http://tivertonlibrary.org/wordpress/ where it is just the thumbnail, title and a excerpt (when applicable). Is there some code I can use to never have those icons show up? For our purposes they are unnecessary throughout the whole site.
Thank you so much!
