WordPress: get posts within the loop

Click here to read WordPress: get posts within the loop

This post will explain how to get posts at the WordPress loop, so you can place code (probably advertisement code) after a specific post (first, second, third) or at intervals (e.g.: every 3 posts).

Before starting, it is a good idea to create a backup copy of your theme’s index.php file, just in case anything goes wrong.

This is a five page post, so here is the page index:

  1. Get the first post
  2. Get the 2nd, 3rd or any other post
  3. Get odd/even posts
  4. Get post intervals
  5. Final considerations
