This is an example of posts listed with pagination (three items per page), but limited to a maximum of 6 items (only two pages). Each item is displayed as an overlay card (the image is used as the card background), the card image has the zoom effect and a 20% opacity, the card has rounded corners and shadows, and the post details fill in the whole info space.
[latest-selected-content ver="2" limit="6" perpage="3" showpages="more" loadtext="Load more ☝" pagespos="1" display="title,excerpt-small" titletag="h3" chrlimit="140" more="➞" url="yes" image="medium" elements="25" color_title="#ffffff" color_bg="#bc274b" image_opacity="0.15" css="three-columns as-overlay has-shadow has-radius hover-zoom content-space-between" type="post" status="publish" taxonomy="category" term="plugins" orderby="dateD" show_extra="light_spinner,trim"]
Starting with version 11.0.0, the plugin enables new style options:
- text, title, and background color
- text and title size
- content vertical alignment: start, center, end, and space between
- drop shadow (the whole card)
- title shadow
- card border radius
- image spacing (if enabled, this is inherited from the card padding, and defaults to 1rem, if nothing else is specified)
- image opacity (this option is for the overlay card)
- stacked on mobile (this option is for the horizontal card, and it transforms the card into a vertical card on mobile view)
- pagination horizontal alignment (when the shortcode is configured to use pagination)
The text, title, and background color options accept hex, RGB, and RGBA format, ex:
rbga(255, 255, 255, 0.5), etc. Leave empty these options if you want to use the defaults. Also, if you want to apply the colors, you should remove the card’s generic aspect, as the light and dark options would override the color.
The text and title size options accept px, %, rem, em, vw, or vh as units, ex:
2vw, etc. The option accepts the clamp() CSS function which creates a beautiful transition of the text size when the resolution changes, ex:
clamp(1rem, 0.6rem + 1.25vw, 1.4rem), etc. Leave empty these options if you want to use the defaults.
Where is the button?
The button for configuring the shortcode is displayed as an icon or as the LPS button, depending on the mode you use when adding/updating content (the posts, pages, widgets, etc.):
- in the Visual mode of the editor, the button appears in the toolbar as an icon
- in the Text mode of the editor, the button appears in the toolbar as the LPS button
The button for the shortcode configurator can be used:
- when adding/editing posts, pages, text widgets
- in the LPS block for Gutenberg
- in the Classic block for Gutenberg
- for version >= 8.7 the button is also available in Elementor.
