I have been breaking my head over this issue for a week.. I finally need to ask for help for the well being & my sanity :)
I've created a newspaper-style layout for a friends's site: featured (latest) post on top, and a two-column layout underneath with a 10 most recent posts.
The main post/first loop - works.
The posts underneath work ... in theory - they run as one post per row, when I created the design to run as two posts per row. I have dissected the CSS over & over and I am sure it's the loop & how I am integrating it. I've checked all possible options and I think the one which works for me is this: http://digwp.com/2010/03/wordpress-post-content-multiple-columns/#horizontal
Here is my code where I am having issues (should display as a two-column, but it displays as a one-column)
<?php query_posts('showposts=10&offset=1'); ?>
<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<?php if( get_post_meta( $post->ID, "image_value", true ) ) : ?>
" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>"><img src="<?php bloginfo( 'template_directory' ); ?>/timthumb.php?src=<?php echo get_post_meta( $post->ID, "image_value", true ); ?>&w=450&h=300&zc=1" alt="<?php the_title(); ?>" class="img_secondary" />
<?php endif; ?>
<h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
<?php the_time('F j, Y') ?> | <?php the_category(',') ?> | <?php comments_popup_link(__( '0 Comments' ), __( '1 Comment' ), __( '% Comments' )); ?>
<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
#more-<?php the_ID(); ?>" title="Continue Reading <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>" class="color" rel="bookmark">Continue Reading →</p>
<?php endwhile; ?>
Any advice would be very very much appreciated.
