Latest Post Shortcode 8.7
The features introduced in version 8.7 include the configurable title wrap element, the raw content option, the integration/basic element for Elementor, and the new tile patterns. The “Latest Post Shortcode” helps you display a custom selection of articles as a list, as a grid, or even as a responsive slider (posts, pages, your custom post types, attachments) in a page/sidebar, without having to code or know PHP.

- See also other extended available options, technical & non-technical details common for the rest of the releases (8.0 -> 8.6)
Configurable title wrap element
This new feature allows you to configure the element that wraps the post title of the items that this plugin is exposing, for SEO purposes. The option is available in the Display Settings section.
By default, h3 is the HTML tag used for wrapping the title, but you can change it to one of the available ones:
If you want to customize the style for the title element, you could use
.item-title-tag as the selector.
Raw content option
This is a new feature that allows you to expose the raw content of the posts, without stripping the markup.
Please note that this feature can produce undesired layout, and I advise for using it with caution.
Basic element for Elementor
With this version, the plugin implements a basic element for the Elementor page builder. This new element allows you to configure and preview the shortcode output within Elementor. Look for The Latest Post Shortcode icon in the list of basic elements or simply search by
Latest Post Shortcode to drag and drop the element in your page.
If you haven’t heard of Elementor yet, find out more here https://elementor.com/. I can only say that it is one of the best WordPress page builders I have tested and worked with this far.
