Newsfeed in website builder WebWave is a tool which automatically displays news previews. It is a very useful element when you are creating a blog or presenting news in a company. In this article, you will learn how to build a website with newsfeed.

 Add newsfeed to your website

Newsfeed can be added to your website through the toolbar on the left side of the builder. Select newsfeed icon and move it to your website.



Newsfeed added to your website will automatically be filled with exemplary news. You will see an exemplary miniature, article title, and its preview. When you add real articles to your website, they will take exemplary ones' place. 


 Newsfeed settings

Change newsfeed settings in side edition panel, where you can set:

  • Category- articles with only certain category will be displayed in a newsfeed (can choose only one category).
  • Sort order - how articles should be sorted: by date (oldest/newest first) or alphabetically.
  • News number- the number of news displayed on a newsfeed and its quantity in a row. For example, if we set news number to 6 and rows to 3, newsfeed will have two rows with three articles in each one. 
  • Vertical/horizontal spacing - Spacing in pixels between news shortcuts. Vertical and horizontal can be set separately.
  • Words - the number of first words of an article which will be displayed in news shortcut.



 Visible elements

You can additionally set:

  • Show preview - should article preview be displayed and how many words should it have.
  • Thumbnail - should articles miniatures be displayed on a newsfeed. You can also set how the picture will fit the frame - will it fit or be cropped. What is more, in Thumbnail section you can set image alignment. By default, the picture is on the left side of a newsfeed, but you can move it to the right side, above or under the text.
  • Pagination - pagination allows you to display on newsfeed more articles than if there were displayed on only one page. For example, when you set that only 6 articles can be displayed on a newsfeed and you wrote 15 news, with pagination all articles will be displayed and newsfeed will have three pages. If you remove pagination, newsfeed will be covered with the newest articles only. 
  • Read more - should "Read more" button at the bottom of article preview be displayed. If it won't be, a user can still access article by clicking on its title or miniature.
  • Date - should a date when an article was created be displayed.



 Create news

In this section, you can easily create a new article or display a list of all articles in a certain newsfeed.



 Change newsfeed style

Change newsfeed style in website builder WebWave exactly the same way you change the style of any other element. To style article title content, double click on it. From now all changes will apply to elements surrounded by a blue frame. 



 Change content

Newsfeed displays previews of already existing articles. If you want to change the title of some article, you can't do it directly in a newsfeed. You need to edit this particular article and changes will automatically apply to the newsfeed.
