For SEO purposes I want to create an alternative post loop in your framework that structures individual posts into separate "cornerstone" sections ~ giving the site *real* structure, rather than simply displaying posts in a blog and faking it with categories and tags.

The goal is to not use a separate blog page for posts but end up with a site structure that looks like this ~ http://domain.tld/page/post/comments/ to the search engines. Cornerstone takes care of the permalinks with /%postpath%/%postname%/

I believe I can do this with the Cornerstone plugin ~ [ http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cornerstone/ ] ~ but I don't know how/if I can do it with your framework.

How do I replace the loop in your framework with a loop that loads post URLs rather than categories?

Here's a Cornerstone loop that displays the title and an excerpt with a link for each post in the section.

I am not a developer, not even a designer ~ just an integrator ~ so any help you can give me would be much appreciated.

Hi,

I'm not quite sure what you're asking here:

The loop in WordPress typically displays posts, so I'm confused by "loads post URL's rather than categories". Also, are you asking about whether or not the plugin will work in Builder, or if you can manually modify the loop?

On the other hand, Builder uses the standard WordPress loop to display posts, so if that is what it takes (so that it can be modified), then there should be no problem.

You might also want to check out LoopBuddy plugin, as it may already have the capabilities that you are looking for, You can find more info on LoopBuddy here: http://ithemes.com/purchase/loopbuddy/
