Add different class to the div?

What if I have different type of portfolio and I want to add different class to a div to make it as a tag e.g. photo and video

loop that used in this video Creating a Portfolio Landing Page is

<?php 

  $portfolio = array(
    'post_type' => 'portfolio'
  );
  $the_query = new WP_Query ( $portfolio );

?>

<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post(); ?>

  <div class="col-md-4 col-sm-6">

    <?php the_title(); ?>

  </div>

<?php endwhile; endif; ?>

what I want to see when going to have on my portfolio post

 <div class="col-sm-6 photo"> photo </div>
 <div class="col-sm-6 video"> video </div>  
 <div class="col-sm-6 photo"> photo </div>  
 <div class="col-sm-6 video"> video </div>

To get the desired effect it is a two step process.

Step one, create a category for each post, add the corresponding category i.e. photo or video.

Step two, add the WordPress function post_class() inside of the looped div. Please note that this function creates a HTML class structure so you do NOT want to have class="<?php post_class(); ?>"; what you need to do is <div <?php post_class(); ?> and that should echo out the category names into the correct div.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

PS to keep the bootstrap classes add then as arguments to the post_class('col-sm-6'); this will include that class as well as the category name class.

<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( $the_query->have_posts() ) : $the_query->the_post(); ?>

  <div <?php post_class('col-sm-6');  ?> >

    <?php the_title(); ?>

  </div>

<?php endwhile; endif; ?>

Then how to add the photo/video class to the post or let just say, how to add video class IF the post is a video? is the STEP ONE is what I need to do?

did you set a category for either the photo or video?

to do this go into the dashboard of the post and on the right hand side set a category.

After you set a category you will see a class name called category-photo or category-video
