You may wish to selectively showcase your content. Utilizing the Posts List module is crucial to mastering this. Its powerful functionality gives you the freedom to customize what your visitors see on your website and where will they see it.

For the purpose of this tutorial, as it was shown in the video, we will make a New Page with Clean layout and work in Live Edit view.

Click on the three horizontal lines at the top of the screen which will prompt the Modules bar to appear. Navigate through it and find the Posts List module. Easily drag and drop it onto your website. Now it’s time to customize what this Posts List module will showcase by clicking on the small wheel and the name of the module in the top left corner.

The module has three customizable sections: Manage, Settings and Skin/Template.

Manage offers a view of the currently shown posts. By default the Posts List module shows all post content you have, sorted by date and time in ascending order. You can rearrange posts via Drag and Drop using the small slider that is located on the left of the posts.

The Settings section is the core to selectivity of showing your content. The dropdown menu lets you choose which existing posts from which existing pages you wish to show. You can either choose to showcase posts from separate pages or to exhibit all posts on your website.

An example: In our tutorial case we can choose either to show the posts on the topic of Ancient Greece, the posts on the topic of Lamps, or both.

There are additional customizable fields like Thumbnail, Title, Description, a Read More Link, Date and a Hide Paging option. You can also input how many posts per page you’d like to show visitors. These fields are editable – for example you can rename your Read More Link into "Learn more about" or whatever your preferences are. You can also define the arrangement of your content – Ascending or Descending, and according to the Title, Date or Position.

The Skin/Template section offers additional customizability in terms of cosmetic looks. There are a number of different skins and templates suitable for different preferences and purposes, so be sure to check them all out!
