How to display latest post on hero section?

Can I accomplish the following using GenerateBlocks free or pro versions?

  • create hero section on homepage (or any other page)
  • display the featured image from my latest post as hero image
  • display the post title from last post as overlay headline on this hero section
  • display post release date as paragraph underneath the post title

Looking forward to your advice.

Thanks in Advance
Sascha

Dynamic data options that would be required for that functionality will be part of a future update.
It is however available today in the GeneratePress theme with the GP Premium 2.0 plugin + GenerateBlocks:

Thanks, this is an awesome feature. However, the site in question for this header section is using a different theme, so I wonder if this can be accomplished using GBP, but without GP?

If not, what other would you recommend?

Thank you and kind regards,
Sascha
