This section allows you to select how many articles that you would like to display, which is a useful feature if you are using a large number of blocks.

  1. Articles to Display: Enter the number of articles that you would like to display a summary for. If there are more articles than the summary amount then it will not display the latter articles.
  2. 'Link To': You can select where you would like the "read more" link to go. i.e. to the article itself or to the article web page.
