In the free "Latest News Enhanced" version 5.0.2 fixed a bug where horizontal design is stuck in one column. The paid "Latest News Enhanced Pro" has the same bug in version 5.0.1 but no update for 5.0.2 so far.
When will the update with this bug fix be available?
indeed there was an error in the free version, hence the 5.0.2 update.
The PRO version does not have that error.
If you intend to use more than 1 item in a row, you need to make sure your configuration is set to 'horizontal', not 'vertical'.
The v5 update is less 'permissive' and does not allow configuration mistakes. That is because it is now using CSS Flexbox which makes a clear distinction for the direction of items (row or column). When set to 'vertical', Flexbox uses flex-direction: column, which forces items in one column.
If you don't see changes once you set the configuration to 'horizontal', make sure you don't have the stylesheet cached (if your site is on 'live mode' for instance, the changes won't be taken into effect).
