    There are three ways to implement a post showcase.

    Option 1: You can apply the “Post Showcase” page template to a page. This is done from the “Page Attributes” box when editing a standard page.

    Option 2: You can add a [post_showcase] shortcode to the content of your page. http://demoblvd.com/plugins/shortcodes/generator/shortcodes-display-posts/

    Option 3: You can use the Layout Builder, which is how most of the examples on the live demo are setup. Apply the “Custom Layout” page template from the Page Attributes box when editing a standard page. Then, when the Builder interface appears, add a “Post Showcase” element to your layout and save the page.

    I managed to get the post displaying, however, it does not want to display it in full width.

    How are you setting this up?

    You’ll need to use the layout builder method from above in order to get the post showcase to display full-width of the screen.

    I’m using the theme builder option and displaying as Post Showcase, displaying as showcase with Pagination.

    4 columns, 4 rows, hide gutter… no options to stretch here.

    So, this will be a thing to note about using the layout builder, in general. When you want an element to stick outside of the constraints of your standard layout width (when an element supports that feature), you’ll do this —

    Edit the “Display Options” for the element, and then check the box for the “Popout” option.

    Yep, that did the trick. Thank you, I appreciate the help.

    Might be something that could be useful on this page. http://news.themeblvd.com/2015/05/31/creating-portfolios-with-theme-blvd-framework-2-5-themes/
