This is part 2 from our tutorial about how to implement a new news pages in wordpress from scratch. In this part we only make the css style for item posts, and add a more details button to the post. You will see in the following code. A little below we have the video of implementation.

Full php and html code:

$news_posts_args = array(
'post_type' => 'post',
'posts_per_page' => -1
$news_posts = get_posts($news_posts_args);
<?php if($news_posts):?>
<section id="main_news_section" class="main_news_section">
<div class="container">
<div class="section_name">
<div class="news_container">
<?php foreach($news_posts as $k => $v):?>
$news_image = wp_get_attachment_image_src( get_post_thumbnail_id( $v->ID ), 'big_square');
<div class="post_item">
<div class="table_row">
<div class="left">
<div class="background" style="background-image:url(<?=$news_image[0];?>)"></div>
<div class="right">
<div class="title">
<a href="<?=get_permalink($v->ID);?>"><?=$v->post_title;?></a>
<div class="description">
<p><?=strip_tags(substr($v->post_content, 0, 200));?> [...]</p>
<div class="read_more_button">
<a href="<?=get_permalink($v->ID);?>">Citeste Tot</a>
<?php endforeach;?>
<?php endif;?>
