News by Category or Tag

The News by Category/Tag block allows editors to pull in pages, posts or external links on their website that have a specific category or tag. For example, if all the posts that are announcements are categorized as “Announcements,” a section can be created on this page by adding a news block with the category “Announcements”. Multiple categories and tags can be pulled into one News section. 

How to add and configure News by Category/Tag

  1. Add the News by Category/Tag block from the blocks list.
Display of the word “news” in the block search bar with the News by Category/Tag block icon outlined in red.
  1. In the Inspector Panel on the right side of the page editor, the Block options will appear. In the “Taxonomy Options” section, choose either to pull in either a “tag” or “category”. In the “Select category” field search for and select the category/tag. All changes in the taxonomy section should appear immediately in the editor. To customize the appearance of the news articles, use the “Display Options” section. Specify the orientation of the news articles (Vertical, Horizontal, Magazine, or Left and Right Sidebar) in the layout field. Specify the number of posts seen, and how they should be sorted (By date or alphabetically).
