In this example, we will import 3 rows 10 columns along with a few more setting changes.

We will keep the Title, Heading, and Sub Heading the same as above.

Next, we will change the heading background color to Red and keep the Sub Heading background color, white.

Now, we’ll keep the button text and button link as it was. And we have kept the ‘Link open In’ as ‘Parent Tab’. That means whenever a user clicks on the button link, he/she will open the link on their parent tab. You can select ‘New Tab’ as well; in that case, the link will open in a new tab.

Next comes the number of rows and columns, we’ll change the rows to 3 and columns to 10.

Further, for insufficient images, we’ll keep the setting as it to ‘Dummy Images’. In this case, if you do not have sufficient group members to fill the columns and rows, the extension will use the dummy images to fill the gap. And if you select ‘Repeat Images’ then the images will be repeated to fill the gaps.

        Thank you so much for your help. After checking all the plugins, it turned out that the cause of the problem in the display is the “Smush” plugin.
