Primary element displays entries list you will add in Administration. What is more, it also displays other lists in an identical way, for instance, entries list from the browser, entries list from a particular category. You can switch between different lists through clicking on links in add-ons.

 

In this element you have at your disposal:

  2. Intro length

  3. A number of entries

  4. Header

  5. Element space and Alignment

If you want to present an additional header just before the primary element and you want it to be different depending on the list type – use header option.
