Wix Blog: Displaying Different Blog Posts on Different Site Pages

4 min read
The Post List element lets you display different blog posts on different site pages. You can add a Post List element to any page and choose which blog categories to show on that page. For example, if you have a recipe blog, you might want to show your salad recipe blog posts on one page, and your dessert recipe blog posts on another.

This is a great way to drive traffic to your blog from other areas of your site and also highlight some new and interesting posts.
