How to Configure Post List in Shopify Blog?

Blog homepage, categories, tags, archive and search pages are post lists featuring certain posts. Correspondingly, the display of these posts is defined by the post list settings. Our Shopify Blog App enables you to choose between two different templates for post list pages and arrange a ccertain number of posts there.

To configure blog posts lists in Shopify:

1. Navigate to Apps > Magefan Blog > Configuration and find the Post List section. 

2. Choose the Template for the posts list: Grid or List

3. Specify the number of Posts per Page. If this number is exceeded, pagination will appear. 

4. Set the Default Short Content Length

Note: regardless of whether you specify the Short Content when creating a blog post or not, short content will be limited by the number of characters you set in this field. 

5. Set the Short Content End Characters that are displayed in case short content exceeds the specified number of characters.
