I have heard a lot of good things about the Loopbuddy plugin but I have a very specific need that I can't seem to get out of other plugins and was wondering if Loopbuddy can handle what I need...

1. I would like to orgainze posts by a particular category - boat length. For example, I will have a parent category: Boat Length and sub-categories: 18-25, 26-35, 36-45, 46-55, etc....

On my page I would like for the posts to be displayed with the larger boats at the top and the smaller boats last....

2. I would like to have two columns to display my posts. See below for example....

Post1 (55' boat)   Post2 (55' boat)
Post3 (50' boat)    Post4 (48' boat)

Please advise if Loopbuddy will allow me to display the posts as represented above before purchase.

Thank you!!

Hey Brittany,

You should be able to accomplish that just fine.  If you look at my site (note to future readers:  please remember that my site changes often as I use it for testing, etc., so it may not display this way at a later date), you can see that I've done what you're asking about.  It did require a minimal amount of CSS to create the columns, but everything else I set up directly in my post and in my LoopBuddy settings.

Hope that helps!  Let me know if you have any other questions!

Sorry to hijack this thread for something slightly off topic - I can't signup (admin blocking new sigups) and I'm trying to get some help. This is an after purchase question if needed I can supply admin license key.

But I'm using a custom post type plugin "easy content type" and I have a repeatable image field for some inventory. I have the inventory rendering just fine except for the gallery's first image. I've done this all by hand coding the PHP but can't find a simple way to use loopbuddy and just (1) of the images from the array. All I get is an array of all the images attached to each of the inventory items and I can't wrap those in an img tags.

So I guess its sorta a two part question 1. how do i get just image(1) of each inventory item for a summary page. Than how do I get all of the inventory items for a single post render on a page?

I would appreciate any help!

Thank you
