I am hoping somebody can help me with this issue. I am working on a custom theme and the client is wanting the Recipe Blogs to show up automatically on the Home page when new recipes are added. I have it on a Home page section, so 3 show up, but am having trouble getting them lined up and to bring ion the styling.

This how they currently look on the live site, recipe blog page: https://belcampo.com/blogs/recipe
And this is how it currently looks on the Home page, Recipes & How Tos section, you will see the 3 article images and titles lined up vertically: https://4cffgtp6f1qstgsz-43102240923.shopifypreview.com

I have also included a screenshot in case the link does now work.

This is the code that I borrowed from another Shopify forum:

<h1 class="display-1 title">{{ section.settings.page_title }}</h1>

{%- assign blog = blogs[section.settings.blog] -%}

{%- if blog.articles_count > 0 -%}
<ul>

{%- for article in blog.articles limit: section.settings.post_limit -%}
<li>
<a href="{{ article.url }}">
{%- if article.image -%}
{{ article | img_url: '150x150', scale: 2 | img_tag: '' }}
{%- endif -%}
<h2>{{ article.title }}</h2>
</a>

{%- if section.settings.blog_show_author -%}
<span>
By {{ article.author }}
</span>
{%- endif -%}

{%- if section.settings.blog_show_date -%}
<span>
{{ article.published_at | time_tag: format: 'month_day_year' }}
</span>
{%- endif -%}

<ul>
<li>
<a href="{{ article.url }}" aria-label="Read more: {{ article.title }}">

</a>
</li>

{%- if blog.comments_enabled? and article.comments_count > 0 -%}
<li>
<a href="{{ article.url }}#comments">
{{ article.comments_count }} comments
</a>
</li>
{%- endif -%}

</ul>
</li>
{%- endfor -%}

</ul>
{%- endif -%}

{%- if section.settings.show_view_all -%}
<a href="{{ blog.url }}"
class="btn"
aria-label="{{ 'blogs.article.view_all_blogs' }}">
{{ 'blogs.article.view_all' }}
</a>
{%- endif -%}

</section>

{% schema %}
{
"name": "Blog posts",
"class": "index-section",
"settings": [
{
"type": "text",
"id": "title",
"label": "Heading",
"default": "Blog posts"
},
{
"id": "blog",
"type": "blog",
"label": "Blog"
},
{
"type": "range",
"id": "post_limit",
"label": "Posts",
"min": 3,
"max": 12,
"step": 3,
"default": 3
},
{
"type": "checkbox",
"id": "blog_show_author",
"label": "Show author",
"default": false
},
{
"type": "checkbox",
"id": "blog_show_date",
"label": "Show date",
"default": true
},
{
"type": "checkbox",
"id": "show_view_all",
"label": "Show 'View all' button",
"default": false
}
],
"presets": [
{
"name": "Featured Recipe Blog",
"category": "Custom",
"settings": {
"blog": "News",
"post_limit": 3
}
}
]
}
{% endschema %}

We want them to look like the article lead-in sections like on the main Recipe Blog page, but having trouble getting there.

Hoping that someone can offer some solutions.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry you are facing this issue, it would be my pleasure to help you.

Welcome to the Shopify community!
Thanks for your good question.

1. Go to Online Store->Theme->Edit code
2. Asset->/theme.scss.liquid->paste below code at the bottom of the file.

.homepage-product-carousel ul {
    display: flex;
    justify-content: center;
    flex-wrap: wrap;
}
.homepage-product-carousel ul li {
    padding: 0px 15px;
}
.homepage-product-carousel ul h2 {
    font-size: 20px;
    margin-top: 15px;
}

Thanks Ketan!

That seemed to do the trick. I did have the CSS in the file section itself, but did not seem to do anything, but moving it to the theme.scss.liquid did the trick.

That was easy!

I might circle back to se if you cam help bring in some of the styling, but I will give it a go myself for now.

Thanks again,
