With Stash, is it possible to store pieces of EE channel entry data and insert it based on a count or some other logic?

I have a three column bootstrap grid below that splits an entry's data into two parts in the template.

Can I store and get the data based on a count or some other logic using Stash and Switch?

.row
- col {entry 1}
- col {entry 2}
- col {entry 3}

.row-two
- col {entry 1 data}
.row-two
- col {entry 2 data}
.row-two
- col {entry 3 data}

.row
- col {entry 4}
- col {entry 5}
- col {entry 6}

.row-two
- col {entry 4 data}
.row-two
- col {entry 5 data}
.row-two
- col {entry 6 data}

-etc-

You can capture the entries as a Stash list and use fractions to split into parts:

  • That's brilliant. Thanks! I have it set up pretty much exactly how I need it, just struggling with exact fractions/offsets. I'm outputting 16 entries and grouping them in 3s, which works until the 5th loop: Code: pastebin.com/XRe6WT8b It's a bit messy, but I'm planning on saving the get list markup as stash variables so that I'm not repeating those code blocks. – g-nice Dec 26 '13 at 17:11
  • So I ended up just setting the offsets without fractions and everything works great. Thanks again! – g-nice Dec 26 '13 at 19:14
