    Hello. I am trying to build a custom layout with multiple posts (3, with scrolling to get a few more) just below the header. How do I do this? Please see the image, I want to try something like this.

    The multiple posts with featured image and text excerpt on display

    Hi there,

    you would first need a plugin to display the posts.
    WP Show Posts – free version will do just that:
    https://wpshowposts.com

    The premium beta version also has a carousel.

    The plugin creates a list of Posts based on the querys you define and provides a Shortcode for displaying them. You can then use the Hook Element to add them into the theme templates:

    Thanks. Let me try this out.
    One of my main reasons for choosing GeneratePress was fast loading speeds. I hope third party plugins don’t bring that down.

    WP Show Posts is also written by Tom ( Developer of GeneratePress ) so its lightweight as well. Just be mindful not to add too many posts to a page, as more requests lead to a slower site.
