Plugin Directory

The Loops

Like Drupal Views but for WordPress, The Loops allows you to query the database for content and display it in a page without having to write php code.

How to use?

Click on the 'Loops' link in the 'Appearance' menu, click 'Add New' to add a new loop. Use the shortcode provided or go to the widgets screen to add the loop to a sidebar.

How to add custom templates?

Copy a default template file from the directory 'tl-templates' in the plugin directory to your theme directory. Then feel free to modify it to your liking!

Copy a default template file from the directory 'tl-templates' in the plugin directory to your theme directory. Then feel free to modify it to your liking!

The template's header must contain the line: * The Loops Template: List of excerpts

How to add register custom templates directories ?

Use a function hooked on filter "tl_templates_directories" eg.

add_filter('tl_templates_directories',my_plugin_tl_templates_directory);

function my_plugin_tl_templates_directory($directories){
    $directories[]=MYPLUGIN_ABSOLUTE_DIR; //change this to the absolute directory you want to be checked for templates
    return $directories;
}

The Loops will then check in MYPLUGIN_ABSOLUTE_DIR if there is valid templates which it can use; and they will be available through The Loops options.
