Displaying Recent Posts in Phlox Tiles Style
Phlox lets you add Recent Posts page to your website, just like all other WordPress themes. It is easily possible by adding a widget. The advantage is that you can give a style to the recent posts by editing the widget options in Widget Areas or in Page Builder. Phlox Recent Posts Widgets let you show your most recent posts on a widget bar of your website, or any page or post you want.
Tiles Recent Posts Widget is one of the Page Builder elements for collecting recent posts in a page/post. This element gives a tiled grid style to your recent posts. Tiles can appear in two different styles and each tile can include the post title and post meta (date, and category/categories).
The tiled layout is best for creating image gallery out of your recent posts and is the best choice for photo blogs.
