    Hi,

    I have genesis framework installed.  I’m using a child theme.  I’m attempting to use the gird loop, but I just don’t get it.  I have read many online tutorials, but I just don’t understand how to accomplish what I want to accomplish.

    All I want to do is print out the loop but customize each element as it is echoed out to the screen, and only display the elements I wish to choose.  I need the title, description, date, category, tags, and 2 custom fields.

    I understand the wordpress loop.  It is very straight forward.

    Yet, how do I get what I want with the grid loop code below?  I don’t even see known variables like ” title, description, date, category, tag” being echoed in the code below..   I think this grid loop just complicates things, how does this grid loop make me life easier?

    Any help is much appreciated.  I’m lost.

    Regards,

    function child_grid_loop_helper() {
    if ( function_exists( ‘genesis_grid_loop’ ) ) {
    genesis_grid_loop(
    array(
    ‘features’ => 2,
    ‘feature_image_size’ => 0,
    ‘feature_image_class’ => ‘alignleft post-image’,
    ‘feature_content_limit’ => 0,
    ‘grid_image_size’ => ‘grid-thumbnail’,
    ‘grid_image_class’ => ‘alignleft post-image’,
    ‘grid_content_limit’ => 0,
    ‘more’ => __( ‘[Continue reading...]‘, ‘genesis’ ),
    ‘posts_per_page’ => 6,
    ‘cat’ => ’13,14′ //enter your category IDs here separated by commas in ‘ ‘
    ) );
    } else {
    genesis_standard_loop();
    }
    }

    There are several write ups on Google. In Google Search – search for Genesis Grid Loop and you will see them.

    Hi,

    I know how to use google.  Do not know how to use this loop to display custom fields.

    There are plenty of grid loop tutorials, but none on using custom variables.
