    Do you have a plug in or some sort of add-on that makes it possible to show (random?) pages instead of posts that I could add to the bottom of my home page?

    I am looking for something like the Content Element “Blog Posts” except that it displays PAGES instead.

    The idea being that visitors could read the text on the home page, then get sample pages scroll below on a slider.

    I could probably build each of the pages as a slide, but this isn’t going to be a quick solution.

    Any ideas?


    Hey ColinWalton!

    Thank you for using Enfold.

    You can create posts for each page then set the post format to Link. Add the url of the page where you want the post to go.



    Hi Ismael,

    Thank you for your clever response. I presume making the format LINK would make the page display the linked page?

    Sadly it doesnt display any of the content from the page:
    If I use BLOG POSTS, even with Full Content selected all I get is the Post Heading and the date details etc. No images.
    If I use POST SLIDER, set the post format to LINK, all I get on the page I want this post to display is a big link icon and the heading as with blog posts.

    Any idea what I am doing wrong? This is the URL for the home page where I want to show the posts at the bottom
    Currently it is showing content elements: four x text blocks / blog posts / post slider
    The PAGE I want to display is this:
    The POST i am using as the intermediary is: which only shows an icon rather than displaying the page itself.

    Am I expecting it to do too much???



    What Ismael means is that you would use the post slider to link to the page. It wouldn’t actually display the content of the page as the link post type doesn’t do that.

    For right now the theme doesn’t have anything to pull content from another page so you would need to use the Content Slider with manual content added in or the Post Slider for post data.

    Best regards,


    Thanks Devin,

    I was looking for the most automated route as there would be lots of them to do. It’s a shame there isn’t a way to use the Avia Layout Builder on POSTS, which would be the perfect work around?

    See you,



    Its something Kriesi has looked at briefly but the main issue with doing it on posts is that content traditionally shouldn’t be modified so heavily. Its a major step back for anyone looking to build a long term site using WordPress to load up their post data with shortcodes and custom layouts when the data on Posts is supposed to stay pretty standard.


    Ok I see what you mean. I will come up with a different way of producing previews of my pages.

    Thanks for the advice.
