Andrew B

This article will cover information on the Blog Post Collection element. This element is one of the Blog Posts-type elements in the page editor.

This element can be found in the Elements menu by mousing over a current element on the page and clicking on the orange “Add Element” button. You can scroll through the menu to locate it, click on the Blog Post Element Group, or type “Collection” in the Search Elements field.

 

You can click and hold the element to drag it into position.
