Two columns within select ‘Pages’

  • Simple. You have to make a Page template that has 2 columns in the content area and create your Page using that template.

    Ok, that makes sense. But how would I actually make the column? If my page.php looks like this
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="post">
    <h2 id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?>
    <span class="edit"><?php edit_post_link(__('edit this page')); ?></span>
    </h2>
    <div class="storycontent">
    <?php the_content(__('[ continued...]')); ?>
    </div>
    <p class="meta"><?php link_pages(); ?></p>
    <?php endwhile; else: ?>
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/errormessage.php'); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </div> <!--end .post -->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
    Since my page is essecially a long list, how can I make it a two colum list? What div tags do I need to create/add? Am I even making sense?

    Ok, seems simple enough. But how would I edit this to make it work?

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="post">
    <h2 id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?>
    <span class="edit"><?php edit_post_link(__('edit this page')); ?></span>
    </h2>
    <div class="storycontent">
    <?php the_content(__('[ continued...]')); ?>
    </div>
    <p class="meta"><?php link_pages(); ?>

    <?php endwhile; else: ?>
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/errormessage.php'); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </div> <!--end .post -->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    how would I make the content span two columns?

    I’d go by inserting two divs in the
    <div class="storycontent">
    2 DIVS HERE <====
    </div>

    where the_content used to be or in the post div; then give some id or class to those columns and define their size, position etc. in your stylesheet.
