I love the Genesis Framework and all of it’s flexibility. When you create a loop you can use different actions to unhook meta info, etc.
Well, what if you want to not go through all that trouble and just make a custom loop with your own code. Here’s how to do it:
The NEW Genesis Loop
So in order to add your custom loop the first thing you’re going to have to do is unhook the standard genesis loop.
Now that the standard loop is gone, let’s create our own loop.
So the first thing I did was add our new loop function to replace where the old one was. Then after that, I just added a standards wordpress loop.
This loop is very basic only displaying the title and the content. If you wanted though, you can go as crazy as you want with it.
There are tons of different ways to output the loop code too so don’t think that this is it. Combine this with Genesis Grid Style Page Template with Custom Post Type and you can literally create any type of loop you want!
Hate Coding and Trying to figure this loop stuff out?
I admit, sometimes I do. It’s fun for me but sometimes I just don’t have the time to make a custom loop with custom code.
In comes the best plugin in the world, WP Views. I’ll eventually write a review on it, but when you want to do a custom loop display, or single page display quick and easy without typing in code, this is the plugin you need. (Yes it’s an affiliate link but the plugin is damn incredible).[/sws_yellow_box]
