    Hi,

    On a new site I am making, I want to take the last post in say category named "News" and place it aside from normal posts.

    How might this be accomplished?

    Thanks

    Say category "News" has category id of 1.

    <?php $posts = get_posts( "category=1&numberposts=3″ ); ?>
    <?php if( $posts ) : ?>

    <div class="section" id="latestNews">
    <h2>Latest News</h2>
    <ul>
    <?php foreach( $posts as $post ) : setup_postdata( $post ); ?>

    <li><span class="date"><?php the_time('F j'); ?></span> <a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" title="Permanent Link to <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></li>

    <?php endforeach; ?>
    </ul>
    </div>

    <?php endif; ?>

    Last year I have asked a similar question and got a solution from Kafkaesqui:
