I'm using twenty twelve and I need to insert a div between the posts. I'm not sure how to stop the loop, insert the div, and then restart the loop.
Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks.
You can check your position within the loop using the
current_post var of the
$wp_query object, and insert markup at a specific spot or at some interval. A simple example:
while( have_posts() ): the_post(); the_title(); the_excerpt(); // if current_post is 1, insert the div // note that current_post starts at 0, // so this will be after the second post's content if( 1 == $wp_query->current_post ): echo '<div>My div!</div>'; endif; endwhile;
You can add the
<div> right after the post is output by modifying index.php of the theme. Take a look at lines 22-25 (http://themes.trac.wordpress.org/browser/twenty-twelve/0.9/index.php), you'd place it right after line 24, which is responsible for pulling the right content type template in and displaying it.
<?php /* Start the Loop */ ?> <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?> <?php get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); ?> <!-- You could insert your div here --> <?php endwhile; ?>
If you wanted to get picky about which types of posts (regular posts, image posts, etc.) it comes after, then you could edit the content-*.php files themselves, and place it at the end of those templates.
