Dynamic Meta Widget Overview
From this overview, you will learn how to add dynamic post meta with the help of the Dynamic Meta widget by the JetEngine plugin.
JetEngine Dynamic Meta widget allows displaying the default meta information, such as the publishing date, author, and information about comments. That data is usually placed under the title or under the thumbnail of the post. If you would like to add that data to your Listing Grid – use the Dynamic Meta widget.
Let’s have a deeper look at its settings.
Open the listing template with the Elementor editor and search for the Dynamic Meta widget. Drag and drop it to the page.
Let’s start with the Content menu section.
Here you will see 3 default items – date, author, and comments. You can customize them if you click them. In the opened tab, you will see the Type field, where you can choose which meta content you want to display: the date, comments count, or information about the author. Also, you can specify an icon, a prefix, and a suffix. You can delete unneeded items or add a new ones. The last option, Layout, allows selecting either inline or list layout.
In the Content tab, you can also apply the Icon to as well as the text before (Prefix) or after (Suffix) the post meta.
Afterward, proceed to the Date Settings section, where you can specify the date format. Moreover, here you can set a link to the date, which will redirect the user to the Archive or the Post. You can disable the link if you want to.
Now, let’s take a look at the Author Settings section, where you are also able to set the link that will lead the user to the Author Archives or the Post. If you wish, you can disable the link.
Finally, check the Comments Settings section. Here you can specify the link that will lead the visitors from the comments count to the post itself.
What is more, you are able to set the comments format: zero, one, or more:
- Zero comments format will suit your needs if you don’t have any comments for the post.
- One comments format will be a perfect decision if you have only one comment for the post.
- More comments format is used if you have more than one comment for the post.
All in all, in this tutorial, you’ve learned how to display the default meta information, such as the date, author, and information about comments using JetEngine functionality.
