How to show latest posts from multiple blogs instead of one single blog

Hi there, we have created 4 blogs in one shopify site. Each blog has some posts, so far we have about 30 posts in total. I created a new page template with navigation links to the 4 blogs. I want this blog home page to show the latest posts with pagination, eg if I post a new post in blog A, then one post in blog B, it should show the two posts from the two different blogs in one page.

 

However when I add section of blog posts, I can only choose to show one of the blogs and I can show 4 posts at most without pagination.

 

I would like to know:

1) How I can group all the posts from the 4 blogs and display them in the page sort by time?

2) Since I have about 30 posts and will have more, how I can add pagination in the page?

 

Many thanks to your help!

Hi,

 

You need to create custom snippet for multiple blog posts in Blog template and integrate that in theme (index.liquid)

 

Custom snippet code example

 

 

{%- assign blog_handles = "blog1-handle,blog2-handle,blog3-handle" | split: "," -%}
{%- assign articles = "" | split: "" -%}

{%- for handle in blog_handles -%}
  {%- assign blog = blogs[handle] -%}
  {%- for article in blog.articles limit: 5 -%}
    {%- assign articles = articles | push: article -%}
  {%- endfor -%}
{%- endfor -%}

{%- assign sorted_articles = articles | sort: 'published_at' | reverse -%}

<div class="multi-blog-posts">
  {%- for article in sorted_articles limit: 5 -%}
    <div class="article">
      <h3><a href="{{ article.url }}">{{ article.title }}</a></h3>
      <p>{{ article.published_at | date: "%B %d, %Y" }}</p>
      <p>{{ article.excerpt | strip_html | truncatewords: 20 }}</p>
    </div>
  {%- endfor -%}
</div>
