    I have seen 2 different shortcodes for displaying the latest news. One in the documentary [latest-news show=”4″] and one in the short-codes list of the Theme Options [latest-news showposts=”4″ comment=”show” date=”show” author=”show”] – but none of them works. I get the shortcode rendered, not the posts…
    Could you help me on this, please?

    Help solve the problem of displaying the latest news.
    The news shortcode is currently in the Car Fix topic [latest-news showposts=”-1″ date=”show” comment=”show” author=”show” excerpt=”22″].
    On the main page of the site, 3 news items are displayed in the visible part, but all the news created during the existence of the site are placed. This leads to an increase in page loading time.
    How to optimize the shortcode so that only 3 latest news are placed on the page, all the others go to another section of the site, for example, “Blog” (we will create a special news archive)?

    Hi smego2007

    To display latest 3 posts in “Latest News” section of homepage, use below shortcode

    [latest-news showposts=”3″ date=”show” comment=”show” author=”show” excerpt=”22″]

    To display all posts in Blog page
    – Create a Blog/News page
    – Select “Blog – Right Sidebar” page template from Page Attribute panel
    – Add this page in main menu

    Please check the documentation
