Blog Archive Layout
Choose how to display your posts on the blog and archive pages.

  • Default: The default layout displays the post meta, post title, featured image and post content all at full container width.
  • Grid: The grid layout displays three columns of blog posts per row. Up to three categories are displayed in the featured image, followed by the post meta, title and content.
  • Offset: The post author avatar and name, categories and comment count are displayed in a left column next to the post. The main column displays the post date, title and featured image followed by the post content.
  • Alternate: The featured image is displayed on alternating sides. Up to three categories are displayed in the featured image. Post meta, the post title and content are displayed next to the featured image.
  • Masonry: The featured image is displayed in a fluid grid layout. The featured image doesn’t use a predefined size so the height will vary according to the aspect ratio of the image.

Due to the limited space available, the Grid and Alternate layouts will display the post excerpt regardless of the Post Content setting selected. The Post excerpt read more link works well with the Grid and Alternate layouts.

To do so, go to PluginsAdd New and search for Yet Another Related Posts Plugin. Install and activate. Finally, go to SettingsYARPP and setup the plugin. If YARPP is activated, the default Unwind recommended posts won’t be used.

In order for YARPP to display correctly, the following settings must be attended to:
