News Tab Shortcode

Updated on November 17, 2017

News Tab shortcode is one of the Jupiter shortcodes that allows you to create a tabbed content box. The difference with regular tabs is that the content of this box is dynamic. It will gather the news section of your website and put an overview of them inside this box. The news tab is perfect for a quick overview of your website news on the front page for example. Please note that in order to make it work, you need to add some News Posts to the website first. So, make sure you have some News posts in the News Section on your WordPress website before using this shortcode.

In this article, we’ll explain about configuring News tab shortcode.
