The News block allows you to keep your site visitors up-to-date with the latest updates and news of your site. You can choose from several News block types, depending on the content you want to showcase on your pages.
Adding the News block
Here’s how to add this block to your page:
- Navigate to the page where you want to feature your articles or news and click the Add a block (+) Plus button.
- In the Block library, choose News from the list to see the pre-designed layout for this block type.
- Click the pre-designed layout you like to add it to your page.
Customizing block settings
You can customize the News block with the help of its control pane. To activate it, click the block and then click the Block settings icon.
The block settings menu consists of two tabs: the Layout tab and the Appearance tab.
In the Layout tab, you can switch the block layout and choose which elements should be displayed in the block. To hide a specific block element (for example, if you want to remove a button), remove the blue tick next to the element’s name.
In the Appearance tab, you can make the following changes:
- Block style: Change the color scheme of the block.
- Block spacing: Change the whitespaces on the top and bottom of the block.
- Content layout: Choose the number of items in a row.
- Content style: Add borders or shadows to make the article elements stand out on the page.
- Media settings: Add a Black&White filter to the images within this block.
Note: Depending on the block layout you choose, you may have more or fewer controls in the Appearance tab.
