I am trying to change the HTML structure and CSS styles of the first 4 posts in the main WP_Query in
I am doing this simple thing where I checked the global
if ( have_posts() ) : if( 4 > $wp_query->current_post ) : the_title(); endif; while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); get_template_part( 'content', get_post_format() ); endwhile; else : get_template_part( 'no-results', 'archive' ); endif;
This works fine, the first 4 posts in the query get displayed in whatever HTML/CSS I apply to them before the
get_template_part() gets called in.
The problem is when I go to the next page, a different set of 4 posts get displayed. The 4 new posts of the second page.
I don’t want that. I want the same 4 posts that appear on the first page to keep appearing as I go to the next or previous pages.
I tried changing the main query with
pre_get_posts and using
offset but that gave me a set of problems in the theme and the admin panel that I decided against it.
How may I achieve that?
