For example, inside the loop could i do something like this

if lastpost { 
else {
if ($wp_query->current_post +1 == $wp_query->post_count) {
    // this is the last post

Change $wp_query to your own query variable if you made a new WP_Query object.


I've coded up a quick little example for you. Should explain how to get the first and last post in a WP loop.

    $post_count = 0;
    $total = count($posts);

    while (have_posts()) : the_post();

        if ($post_count == 1 AND $post_count !== $total)
            // This is the first post

        if ($post_count == $total)
            // This is the last item


if (!get_next_post_link()) { 
    echo 'the last post here';
