I was working on a website with a news section that I was using as a blog. This news section had various different pages that represented a different WordPress category, therefore, on that page I only wanted to list the posts from that particular category. This seemed simple enough to me, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it!
So I turned to my lovely friends on Twitter and asked them the question. Sure enough, it was very simple to do, and is probably something that I should’ve known how to do. Anyway, here is the code.
<?php query_posts(‘cat=1&showposts=3′); ?>
<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<h3><a href=”<?php the_permalink() ?>” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?>”><?php the_title(); ?></a></h3>
<p><?php the_time(‘F j, Y’) ?></p>
<?php the_excerpt(); ?>
<?php endwhile; ?>
I hope you guys find this as helpful as I did, unless you already knew how to do it! If you know of a better way then please do comment below.
