Post tiles allows you to use the shortcode [post-tiles] on any page or post and displays a grid of posts in a tile format. (Live Preview)
By default 8 posts are displayed. To change the amount of posts to display on the page, use the posts=’ ‘ attribute in the shortcode. Example: [post-tiles posts=’10’]
By default all post categories are called for the tiles. To specify the categories use the categories=’ ‘ attribute separating them by commas. Example: [post-tiles categories=’1,2,4′]
By default the tiles use the excerpt trimmed to 20. You can specify your excerpt length with the excerpt=’ ‘ attribute. Example: [post-tiles excerpt=’18’]
NOTE: The category id numbers are listed below, next to the category names. You can use both the categories and posts attributes Example: [post-tiles categories=’1,2,4′ posts=’8′ excerpt=’18’]
Enjoy it 😀

If in the settings jQuery is turned on then by default everything loads invisible and is revealed with a fade. You should check your version of jQuery to make sure you’re running at least 1.4 +. To test whether jQuery is the issue in the settings you can disable the jQuery and the plugin should appear.
