I am looking to see if there is a way to use GeneratePress and WP Show Posts to recreate something that I have in place on an existing website.
I have attached a couple of example pages from a website that I have worked on that highlights the issue. On the example pages you will see that the main content area is divided into 2 columns using the block editor. The left column has a dynamically pulled in latest news post (with the blue background) and the right hand column has a dynamically pulled in a testimonial. This has been done by creating a block(by adding code to functions.php) that when placed into a page allows me to select the category that I want the latest news post (or testimonial) to be pulled from.
Is this something that could be replicated without coding a block at all? I was thinking of WP Show Posts but would that mean I have to create multiple Show Posts and select the correct one or is there a way to add dynamism to this to allow me to select the relevant category at block level?
