Not necessarily looking for a direct answer (but if yo got one please do!)
Using wordpress as a CMS system for my site. But due to the nature of it being a site, I've re-written certain pages in normal php and html and taken things out of 'the loop'.
What I want to do is include the latest blog posts on a php sidebar file that is outside the loop and standalone called sidebar2.php
Now as the file will be out of the loop I'm assuming certain 'calls' for information won't work. I've already done a few tests and am overwhelmed with error messages.
A standalone sidebar file located in a totally different directory to wordpress wishes to get certain snippets of information from it.
Any useful links or codes? (I wish to learn for myself as much as possible)
