Posts per Page
Optionally enter the number of posts to display per page. If a value isn’t entered, this setting will fallback on the global setting at SettingsReading.

Sticky Posts
Choose between Default, Ignore sticky, Exclude sticky, and Only sticky.

Default: Sticky posts are displayed at the top of the post loop. If an offset is applied via the Additional field, it won’t be applied to the sticky posts. This is the WordPress default behavior.

Ignore sticky: Sticky posts won’t be moved to the top of the post loop but will still be displayed in their normal published position.

Exclude: All sticky posts will be excluded from the post loop.

Only sticky: Only sticky posts will be displayed. All other posts will be removed.

Additional
Additional query arguments. See query_posts.

Below you’ll find a few examples of additional query arguments you might use.

Don’t Display the Most Recently Published Post:
offset=1

* If Posts per page is set to -1 offset is ignored.
* If you have any sticky posts present offset won’t work 100% as expected, the Post Loop Widget will count the sticky posts as offset but still output them so it’ll appear as though nothing changed. Set Sticky posts to Ignore sticky to remove sticky posts from the loop.
