With Content Views Pro, you can show only N posts for each selected term easily. Here is how:
- select the For each term, show this number of posts checkbox under Filter Settings tab >> Filter by Taxonomy
- enter the number of posts to show for each term
By using this feature, posts will be shown in the categories order. For example, you select categories as above: Audio, Content, Quote. It will show 3 posts of Audio first, then 3 posts of Content, and 3 posts of Quote last.
