Displaying posts in a grid by category (5 posts)

    My mind is blank when it comes to any sort of code, which is why reading about it hasn't gotten me any further. I want to set my site up so that posts that are made go to their respective locations automatically.

    For example, I want all posts in the category "editing tips" to be displayed here http://thefumbledword.com/editing-tips/ in a grid format with just the picture, title and nothing else.

    I've made another page using the carousel loop to show how I want the posts to be displayed. Found here: http://thefumbledword.com/example/

    The titled looks neat and the picture is interactive. The post titled "test" is in a different category. I'm trying to make that post only appear on another page for 'test' category posts in the same grid layout but with the carousel style.

    I hope that's enough information, and would very much appreciate if someone were to walk me through this.

    to do that in a page, you will need to create a page template with the corresponding code;


    have a look at the example code for http://codex.wordpress.org/Page_Templates#A_Page_of_Posts

    getting the posts into a grid layout might be second step once you have the page template working.

    alternatively, consider to use category templates to show the posts; http://codex.wordpress.org/Category_Templates

    Damn, I'm not getting any of this. Tried to follow those links, but I think I'm a bit too thick when it comes to this kind of stuff.

    What's the going rate to have this job done up for me?

    this forum does not discuss jobs or rates; http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Offering_to_Pay

    consider to post a job at http://jobs.wordpress.net/ or similar sites.

    Perhaps this would be easier.

    I'm using the (PB) post loop widget to display the posts. If I were to use the 'grid-loop', how would I make it so only posts from a certain category are displayed in that widget on that particular page.

    I've noticed an 'addition query' box at the end of widget options, perhaps I could put something in there?

    To be honest, I just messed around blindly with the style.css and changed how the grid-loop looked. Guess it looks alright, now!
