I'm just wondering how I can code up a 2 column template where the number of items is unknown, ie as in the attached image:
Do I need to have a repeating <td> and just make sure there are always an even number?
You could make a repeater that is 2 stories at a time.
JohnP is on the money - your best bet is to create a 2-tier layout (4 <td> cells, or a table with 4 cells), to create this checkerboard effect. How does this sound?
sounds good to me thanks!
