    Hi there I’m trying to set up a homepage section with one column having some text (looks ok) and the second column listing the latest blog posts.

    You can see it here: http://www.lyndaoswald.kinsta.com

    To display the blogpost I’m using the shortcode like this

    [column_content type=”one_half”]

    <h2>Recent Posts</h2>

    [recentposts col=”1″]

    [/column_content]

    Two problems:

    1) The blog post does not appear in the second column, but in the next row, under the first column

    2) I don’t want the blog post image, and I’d like the text to be much smaller (its huge!). Anything I can do about that?

    I don’t think this is the correct code: [recentposts col=”1″]

    Check the correct shortcode in Appearance>Theme Options>Shortcode

    It is the correct code. In the shortcode menu it states
    Recent Posts
    [recentposts col=”3″]

    Okay now i get it shortcodes within shortcodes won’t work. So you have 2 column shortcode and within that you are using another shortcode of recent posts.

    So it won’t work.

    You have to use some kind of div (html based) to have 2 columns and within that you can use shortcode of recent post and other.
