Creating a simple template
L&L is powerful enough to build entire site themes, but we’ll start by looking at a basic template example to get familiar with the fundamentals. A template is the custom post type associated with Loops & Logic. Any L&L markup you write, including the code in the example below, will need to be added inside a template. Instead of sticking to default WordPress post types, we’ll make things a little more interesting by using custom fields. Let’s see it in action!
