Present your Blog posts in so many ways

Blog Manager for WordPress adds tons of blog functionality to your WordPress based website.

Create as many blog post lists as you like. This plugin comes with over 20 templates to choose from. Select list content, modify layout and style your list to get the content and the look you want. Place your lists anywhere in your site by using the list’s shortcode or a widget.

Over 20 templates to choose from!

Either use the default settings for each template or modify the whole list however you want.

  • Grid – Blog 1 column, 2 columns, 3 columns, 4 columns
