Just before the loop, set a PHP variable (eg, $my_count) and set it equal to 1:
$my_count=1;. Then, at the end of the loop, just before
$mycount+=1;to increase the variable by 1.
Finally, wherever you want your banners to appear, put:
Your banner code
That $my_count%3 says “If the number $my_count is evenly divisible by 3 (ie, no remainder), put my banner code here.”
Thanks for a quick reply!
Can you give me a little more details on your code, I’m pretty new on PHP :-/
But I’m pretty familiar with the loop so just the basics of your code would be highly appreciated, and I can play around with it 🙂
All it’s doing is creating a variable called $my_count before the loop, and then setting that variable equal to the number 1. Then, once the loop starts, the variable increases by 1 after each post is displayed (the $my_count+=1 line).
So…if you’re using the default setup, the WordPress loop will pull ten posts and your $my_count variable would look like this:
$my_count=1 BEGIN WORDPRESS LOOP POST #1 $my_count=2 POST #2 $my_count=3 POST #3 $my_count=4 POST #4 $my_count=5 POST #6 $my_count=7 POST #7 $my_count=8 POST #8 $my_count=9 POST #9 $my_count=10 POST #10 $my_count=11 END WORDPRESS LOOP
The “if” function says that your code inside the “if” function should appear if $my_count=3,6,9,12 — basically, any time $my_count is evenly divisible by 3. In the above example, your code would appear after POST #3, POST #6, and POST #9.
So a sample code would look like this:
<?php $my_count=1; if(have_posts()) : while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <div class="entry"> <h1><?php the_title();?></h1> <?php the_content();?> </div> <?php if(($my_count%3)==0):?> <div class="banner"> Content of banner (Google AdSense code or whatever) </div> <?php endif;?> <?php $my_count+=1; endwhile; endif; ?>
