1.1 Introduction

Hello, and welcome to this Tuts Plus course on working with the WordPress Loop. My name's Rachel McCaullin, and I'm going to show you how to use the loop in your template files to output content. So first I'll show you the standard loop which works here on the homepage on our site and on static pages, and on the block page as well. And then I'll show you how to create some custom loops. So for example, I'll show you how to create an archive loop which will work on the blog page and also on the tag archive page. I'll show you how to create a custom loop for single posts on pages which is working here. And then I'll show you how to modify the loop and tweak it using an action hook in WordPress. Finally, I'll show you some methods for creating completely bespoke loops and adding those outside the main loop in your file. So here there's a latest list of posts. Watch this course and find out how to do all those things.
