    I know it’s easy enough to split a *single* blog entry into two columns using column classes — but that’s NOT what I want to do.

    What I want to do is have, say, my latest four blogs divide the blog area such that blogs 1 and 2 are entirely situated in the left column and blogs 3 and 4 are entirely in the right column.

    Thus, what I want is something like

    Blog 1 Blog 3

    Blog 2 Blog 4

    rather than the usual

    Blog 1

    Blog 2

    Blog 3

    Blog 4

    or, using column classes,

    Blog 1 first half Blog 1 second half

    Blog 2 first half Blog 2 second half

    Blog 3 first half Blog 3 second half

    Blog 4 first half Blog 4 second half

    Is what I want to do doable and if so how?

    Thanks in advance if you can solve this problem!!!

    I doubt a link will help. It will merely show what I want to get away from, but I’ll give it at the end of this post as an indulgence.

    More importantly, please just reflect on the problem as described below, again.

    My home page is content-sidebar, with the content being posts.

    The posts are displayed the usual way, vertically in one column:

    Most recent post
    2nd most recent post
    3rd most recent post
    etc.

    I want the content area instead to consist of two columns:

    [Left column]………………………………….[Right column]
    Most recent post…………………………….3rd most recent post
    2nd most recent post……………………..4th most recent post

    I’d like to be able to do this without having to write much or any .php and .css.

    For some reason the link didn’t display. Please just copy and paste the following:

    Are you talking about a grid loop? Try this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-grid-loop/

    Susan, you’ve hit the bulls-eye for me again. Many, many thanks!

    The two-column format that Erickson uses in the bottom two-thirds in the blog post you quote above:

    http://www.billerickson.net/a-better-and-easier-grid-loop/

    is just the kind of formatting effect that I would like to accomplish. I’ve installed his plugin and downloaded for study the accompanying explanatory material.
