I have a category called "cars" (it's ID # is 9). I want to have a category template page that shows BOTH a specific post (that sticks out on top of content as a "welcome post") then it proceed with looped posts with "cars" category on them.
So it looks something like this:
Welcome Post (sticks out in front of page)
cars post #9
cars post #8
cars post #1
I can mod the php file so that the welcome post will be static. But since I'm doing a page for someone who is not php savvy and likes to change content in welcome post, I have to generate the welcome post off the admin.
So I used
// retrieve one post with an ID of 5
And it pulls up the welcoming post but the following cars posts don't show up. It seems like it kills the loop.
