I'm trying to list posts in a custom post type, within a layout like following.

Layout

html for below layout like this.

<div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">
   PROFILE - 1

      </div>

 <div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">


      </div> 
<div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">
   PROFILE - 2

      </div>
 <div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">
   PROFILE - 3

      </div>
 <div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">


      </div>

<div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">
   PROFILE - 4

      </div> 

as you can see after "PROFILE - 1" there is a div separator then there is "PROFILE - 1 & PROFILE - 2" after "PROFILE - 1 & PROFILE - 2" again div separator.

basically the structure as follows.

Profile-1

V V

Empty space (div based col-md-4 col-sm-6 )

V V

Profile-2

V V

Profile-3

V V

Empty space (div based col-md-4 col-sm-6 )

V V

Profile-4

i'm using this loop as a custom structure but i'm unable to get it from Profile-2 > Profile-3 > Space point.

looking for a help to achieve this loop.

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE TRIED

<?php 
$args=array(
'post_type' => 'ourteam',
'posts_per_page' => -1 
 );

//Set up a counter
 $counter = 0;

//Preparing the Loop
$query = new WP_Query( $args );


//In while loop counter increments by one $counter++
if( $query->have_posts() ) : while( $query->have_posts() ) : $query-
>the_post(); $counter++;

//We are in loop so we can check if counter is odd or even
 if( $counter % 2 == 0 ) : //It's even
 ?>


 <div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">

  </div>

<div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">

        <div class="cp-attorneys-style-2">

          <div class="frame"> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail(''); ?></a>

            <div class="caption">

              <div class="holder">

    To provide space between div you can use margin and float property of CSS instead of using empty div. – Rishabh Apr 10 '17 at 8:09
  • @Rishabh thanks but it's not spacing issue it's about getting the structure mentioned into a wordpress loop – garrow Apr 10 '17 at 8:33

    can you perhaps post a code snippet of what you did? codepen,jsfiddle. Will be easier even for you cause we will just edit from there – user agent Apr 10 '17 at 9:31

You can set your custom loop something like this

$a=2;
//In while loop counter increments by one $counter++
if( $query->have_posts() ) : while( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post();
    if($a%3!=0){  //Here write function to display title and discription
    ?>  
        <div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">

    <div class="cp-attorneys-style-2">

      <div class="frame"> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_post_thumbnail(''); ?></a>

        <div class="caption">

          <div class="holder">

            <ul>

             <li><a href="<?php the_field('mem_twitter'); ?>"><i class="fa fa-twitter"></i></a></li>

              <li><a href="<?php the_field('mem_facebook'); ?>"><i class="fa fa-facebook"></i></a></li>

              <li><a href="<?php the_field('mem_linkedin'); ?>"><i class="fa fa-linkedin"></i></a></li>

            </ul>

            <p> </p>

           <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" class="btn-style-1">Read Profile</a> </div>

        </div>

      </div>

      <div class="cp-text-box">

        <h3><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>

        <em><?php the_field('mem_titles'); ?></em> </div>

    </div>

  </div>      
    <?php 
    $a = $a+1;
    } else {
    ?>
        <div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">  
        <?php //Leave this div empty 
        ?>
        </div>
        <div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">

    <div class="cp-attorneys-style-2">

Take backup of your code first.

Do you need the empty div for anything other than spacing? By the class names, it looks like you are using bootstrap, and in bootstrap you have the offset-classes to ensure correct spacing on the different breakpoints.

If you want two profiles on each row you can do

<div class="col-md-offset-2 col-md-4">

to make sure you have a two-column offset on the left hand side of each div. Then you eliminate the need for empty divs used only for spacing.

  • Thanks, i have no spacing or css issue, all i want is to my wordpress loop to maintain the structure i describe in the question – garrow Apr 10 '17 at 10:27
