I am trying to replicate the same style as seen in this picture displaying the latest posts. I am aware as to how to recreate it using a WP Loop and having the content sizes all the same. What I want to do is have it so it varies the sizing based on a fixed template. So the layout would be constant but the posts would change based on the latest posts. If I could be pointed in the right direction as to how to achieve this.
As I said I know how to use the loop to recreate the posts using a single layout style. Ideally I don't want to use featured posts.
The loop I am using is:
<?php if ( have_posts() ) : ?> <?php /* Limit Number of posts returned to 4 !important */ ?> <? $numberOfPost = 4; $catId = get_query_var('cat'); $page = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1; query_posts('paged='.$page.'&posts_per_page='.$numberOfPost.'&cat='.$catId); ?> <?php while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?> <?php /* Include the Post-Format-specific template for the content. * If you want to overload this in a child theme then include a file * called content-___.php (where ___ is the Post Format name) and that will be used instead. */ get_template_part( '/templates/content-latest', get_post_format() ); ?> <?php endwhile; ?> <?php endif; ?>
