I was wondering how to create a layout like that of the CSS Tricks homepage whereby ‘standard’ posts are shown on the left and ‘link’ posts on the right.
How would I achieve this layout? Would it involve having to manipulate post formats in WordPress?
Any help would be appreciated.
Although I’ll have time to write a more detailed post later – with some example code – the quick answer is that you will need to run a custom loop to get only links as the default only outputs posts. In order to do this, there are several routes you can take: using [query_posts()](//codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/query_posts “”) ([screencast](//css-tricks.com/video-screencasts/91-the-wordpress-loop/ “”)) or initializing a new instance of the [WP_Query()](//codex.wordpress.org/Class_Reference/WP_Query “”) class.
Yep, it’s just running multiple loops for what you need. WP_Query is great for that. It’s covered in both series in The Lodge =)
