The Striking Blog Page

The striking theme has two ways to set a page to a blog listing page.

By setting a static page as your blog listing page in the striking blog general settings.

striking-global-blog-page

By inserting a Blog shortcode into any location in any page.

Note : This means you can have unlimited blog listing pages.

Creating a blog listing page with the blogshortcode

Any page or even post can contain a bloglist showing one or more blogposts. This way a page can, for example show a small list of posts about a certain subject/topic, below the default story of that page. The bloglist can be inserted by a shortcode at any point into the body content of a page, post or even portfolio item. The shortcode is created and generated by the buildin striking shortcode generator and could look like this:
[code] [divider_line]

Bloglist with full featured image above the title

[divider_line]
[blog count=”2″ nopaging=”true” imageType=”full”] [divider_line]

Bloglist with full featured image below the title

[divider_line]
[blog count=”2″ nopaging=”true” imageType=”below”]
[/code]
The shortcode generator can be found above the content editor and is shown in two different ways.

In visual mode of the editor.

In text mode of the editor.
