Teachers Notes

The different WordPress loops can be a bit complicated for students to grasp especially if they lack PHP knowledge. The Digging into WordPress article “4 Ways to Loop With WordPress” is a must read for all students wanting to learn more about the various loops. It’s a good idea to introduce students to code snippets and get them to start their own snippet library.
