I am displaying the recent blog posts in tiles style with Beaver Builder Pro plugin (no extra third party add-ons) on static front page. See the image at below:
Top one is the full width one column row and insert the single Post module. I setup a placeholder background image(An image placeholder is a dummy image designed to draw attention to the need for an actual image) into the row. Below I add the 2 columns row. In every column I add the placeholder background image and insert the Post module with offset value(excluding the previously displayed post). Only challenging part is that all placeholder background images will be updated with post’s featured image.
I am sharing the instruction how you will get this layout with Beaver Builder Pro plugin.
