Elixir: WordPress Posts Particle

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Elixir Demo for WordPress


The WordPress Posts particle (Also known as contentarray) gives you the ability to directly list and pull in WordPress posts directly from the CMS and present them in a clean, organized way. It's important to note this does not take the place of the Page Content particle which essentially displays any post content assigned to the page. This is a controlled, organized particle perfect for showcasing content.
