Archive theme layout: Post Columns, Gallery, List, Masonry modules (Themer)
There are four Post modules in the Archive modules category. This category appears in the Add Content menu when you're editing an Archive-type theme layout in Theme Builder:
- Post columns
- Post Gallery
- Post List
- Post Masonry
These four modules display posts in various visual layouts. For a more detailed description of each of these layouts in the Posts module, see the Posts module overview for the Beaver Builder plugin.
Under the hood
The four Post modules are "shortcut" modules. They're actually a Posts module with the Layout field set to Columns, Gallery, List, or Masonry. When you open this module for editing, you'll have all of the regular Posts module settings, including the ability to customize the HTML markup.
The difference in the Posts module when used in a theme layout is the Content tab. In a theme layout, the Source field should be set to Main query, which means the items that are displayed depend on the archive page on which they occur. For example, if you create a theme layout for all your Post category archives, each different category archive page will display the posts for that category. You can preview any of the category archive pages and see the correct posts displayed.
