[R] adding counter to df by group

I need to count the trials in an experiment, separately for each
subject. I thought about using the function "by" but I could not
manage to achieve this. Instead, I tried "split" and I got closer to a
solution but still not getting there yet.
The following code should create a variable "miniblock" with the
trial/miniblock number.

However, I get the following error message: Error in
`$<-.data.frame`(`*tmp*`, "miniblock", value = c(1L, 2L, 3L,  :
  replacement has 460 rows, data has 500

Is there a more efficient way to achieve the result? Maybe with "by" or dplyr?

Thanks a lot in advance!
