    Hi Jamie,

    Please could you help me with displaying 4 blog posts in one row using short codes for my home page, I have tried using bits from this page but it just displays as the short code http://en.support.wordpress.com/display-posts-shortcode/

    I would like 4 posts from a particular category on one row so they match the features etc above..

    Many thanks,
    Susanna

    PS. I never get an email notification from this forum so don’t know when you have replied :-/ and yep I do check the box just below…

    Hi Susanna,

    I don’t think Canvas has an inbuilt shortcode for this one. However we are actually working on a project that requires this so hopefully will have an answer this week :)

    oh great thanks :-) You know it’s not showing up on your plugins page? or at least I couldn’t find it…

    Looks great! I’ll give it a bash :-)

    Oh, I see why I didn’t see it – I’m looking at Canvas extensions…

    I already have the Canvas Page builder, Customizer and Menu editor bundle – am I able to use this extension with the Canvas page builder? Or do I need to download the Pootle Page Builder Core and use that instead of the Canvas-specific one?

    Thanks!

    Hi Mhairi,

    These extensions only work with pootle page builder – canvas page builder has a post loop widget that enables you to bring posts into your canvas page builder

    Here’s a tutorial http://jamiemarsland.wpengine.com/2014/06/video-tutorial-create-magazine-layout-like-new-york-times-website/

    Hope that helps,
    Jamie
