  • Hello.

    I’d like to have a template for a certain category to display content in a two-column table or table-like layout. In one column, there will be the text of each post. In the second column, there will be a video associated with each post, which I imagine will be specified in a Custom Field or somewhere in the post itself.

    I’m pretty sure there’s a way, but I don’t know what it is. :p Any ideas?

  • There’s a great post on videos and custom fields here: .

    Can anyone help me with the layout part?

    You don’t really need tables for that. At least I don’t “design” anything in tables, since they were invented not for layout.

    You can simply apply two divs in the content area of your template: give them a class, define their width (in the stylesheet). Of course, according to your theme’s layout.
    Use the_content template tag in the left one and the custom key in the right one.

    Shouldn’t that work?

    Makes sense, thanks.

    What if I want multiple rows of content plus video divs? How would the code look?

    I’m not asking for how to do divs, btw. Just for help with the template tags. 🙂
