Post slider

Posts sliders can be inserted into your page to guide readers to other content as well. Simply specify a fitting title, the amount of posts and an optional category to get it started.

 

Placed into columns

You can use columns to make the post slider any size you want. Here are two examples using an 8 and 4 column width.
