Love this webpart, you guys are always doing a great job! I have few questions though.
I've selected the pages library, it is possible to slect a different column to to assign a picture through to appear on the top of the post? You mention Show Extra Column setting, but I am unsure how to apply this.
If using the pages library, it is possible to have the body text for each tile come from specified different colum? This way you can always control what text appear in each window? If I use your screen shot example, the text under the first tile "2019 will be a big year for our tech wearables...." this is what I would like to pull from the assigned column if possilbe? Essentially creating a byline for each story.
And last question is it possible to make a button display at the bottom left of the post versus appending the "Read More" at the end of the body text?
Any help is appreciated.

Sharon,
would you want to rather use the "Rollup Image" column or a custom column of type "Hyperlink or Picture" to specify the source of the picture?

You can override the "Page Content" column as the source of the text displayed by the web part by appending:

/body=YourTextColumn

You can for example rather use the "Byline" column by entering:

/body=ArticleByLine

Regarding the "read more" button:
please enter the below into the web part's "Detail Link Text" setting:
<button type="button">read more..</button>

To place the button in the bottom left corner o fthe post, please enter:
<button type="button" style="position:absolute;bottom:5px;left:0px">read more..</button>

One of the best to have SharePoint add-ons. Especially the support from Juerg is excellent and I would highly recommend "Amrein" for all SharePoint Shops out there.
