Join Carrie Dils for an in-depth discussion in this video What is the Genesis loop?, part of WordPress Themes: Customizing Themes with Genesis.
- [Voiceover] The Genesis loop works the same way…as the Wordpress loop, in the sense that it…loops through post and pages to display content.…The primary difference is that it includes…various hooks that give us the flexibility…to jump into the loop at any time…to move or modify what's coming out.…So here we are in the Genesis framework files,…specifically in loops.php,…and this is where the loop magic happens.…So we start here with this function…called Genesis do loop.…And inside of that, basically we have…some conditionals here based on what sort of template…is happening.…
But the main thing that I want to point out…is that we've got this Genesis custom loop…and this Genesis standard loop.…And most of the time, we're going to be…using the Genesis standard loop.…And what that is, it outputs basic html,…but it's using hooks to do this.…So for instance, this is going to look familiar…to that Wordpress loop.…We're saying if we've got post,…hey, then while we've got them,…we're going to do some stuff.…Except unlike that Wordpress loop…
