Display more Latest News by changing size of posts

Dear Support,

First of all thank you for your wonderful work, you are the best theme support around!

I would like to display more posts in the Latest News widget on the frontpage. I was able to change the number of latest news posts displayed on the Latest News widget by changing the following line in file sydney-child/widgets/fp-latest-news.php:

‘posts_per_page’ => 3,

to:

‘posts_per_page’ => 5,

I now have 5 posts instead of 3, but these posts take up 2 rows instead of 1, even if i set the widget width to ‘full width stretched’.
I was wondering how I could tweak the widget to show smaller text & pics so that all 5 posts could fit into one row.

Thanks in advance!

Ok, found it (sorry for the trouble!):

Problem is that I have to change code inside core sydney theme, which is not a very good solution; when the theme updates to a newer version I will have to manually redo this.

Any solutions that do not involve touching the parent theme would be appreciated!

Thanks again

Hello there,

Currently there is no other way than that. I’ll let our developer know about it. Maybe there is something we can improve in the future update of Sydney.
