Creating a blog listing page with the blogshortcode

Any page or even post can contain a bloglist showing one or more blogposts. This way a page can, for example show a small list of posts about a certain subject/topic, below the default story of that page. The bloglist can be inserted by a shortcode at any point into the body content of a page, post or even portfolio item. The shortcode is created and generated by the buildin striking shortcode generator and could look like this:

[divider_line]<h2>Bloglist with full featured image above the title</h2>[divider_line] [blog count="2" nopaging="true" imageType="full"] [divider_line] <h2>Bloglist with full featured image below the title</h2>[divider_line] [blog count="2" nopaging="true" imageType="below"]

The shortcode generator can be found above the content editor and is shown in two different ways.

In visual mode of the editor.

In text mode of the editor.
