FAQ

Can I use my own template to display the looped posts?

Yes you can! Simply copy loop-template.php from the plugin folder to the root of your theme folder and edit as needed.
You can also create a template for each post type such as loop-template-post.php or loop-template-page.php or loop-template-my-custom-post.php
