Recent Posts Element
As well as the Blog Element, Avada also comes with a Recent Posts Element. This element is unique in that it offers more compact design options than the Blog element, which may work better on pages with a lot of varied content. This element enables you to display your posts on any page, select various layouts, assign custom categories to display and so much more. You can use the Recent Posts Element as many times as you’d like, and on any page or post. Before you can display blog posts, you must first create them.
