    I have the following code which is supposed to pull the last post with the avatar photo on the front page.

    <?php $types[0] = 'post';
           $types[1] = 'page';
    
              foreach ($types as $type) {
                $args=array(
                  'orderby' => 'date',
                  'order' => 'DESC',
                  'post_type' => $type,
                  'post_status' => 'publish',
                  'posts_per_page' => 1,
                  'caller_get_posts'=> 1
                  );
    
                    $my_query = null;
                    $my_query = new WP_Query($args);
    
      if( $my_query->have_posts() ) {
        echo 'Latest ' . $type ;
          while ($my_query->have_posts()) : $my_query->the_post();
           echo get_avatar( get_the_author_email(), '80');
           the_date();
           the_content();
        endwhile;
      }
    } wp_reset_query(); ?>

    It does but posts_per_page => 1 doesn't really seem to work as I get a post and a page? I only need the last post. Any suggestions please?

    Removing $types[1] = 'page'; doesn't work, using $types = 'post'; neither.
