Max Query Loop for Bricks Builder

Introducing Max Query Loop for Bricks Builder! This cool new feature is an upgrade to the existing Bricks' query loop. It's designed to give you even more control by offering new types of queries that are super handy for displaying Custom Posts Types on your WordPress websites.

With this update, we are adding 2 new query types: Adjacent Posts and Related Posts.

Let’s now see how it works:

This Max Loop Query lets you fetch the previous and next posts in chronological order based on the current post in the loop. This feature works within the context of the query loop and users can use single post templates to display links to the previous and next posts.

1. First, edit the existing Single Post Template, or if you prefer, you can also create a new page and later save it as a template. Once you're in there, hit the 'Edit with Bricks' button.

2. Add the “Container element" & toggle on the 'Use query loop' button

3. As soon as you enable the Use query loop button, you’ll be displayed with a drop-down menu. Choose 'Max Query' from the listed query options.

4. Max Query: Choose 'Adjacent Posts' to showcase the posts before and after the current one in the loop.
