Hi Alessandro,

Thank you for contacting our support forum.

Let me see how best I can assist you.

What I would recommend that you do is to contact your theme authors support forum as they would best know how to add this to the home page blog.

The reason is that you are able to display a view with a shortcode and you only need them to point you in the right direction on where to add this shortcode.

Please let me know if this helps.
Could you also let me know the theme you are using.

Thanks,
Shane

Hi Alessandro,

Unfortunately not, in order to get an exact replica of your theme's archive style you will need to apply some css and html styling to the loop in order to get it the view output to display like the one that your theme provides.

Thanks,
Shane
