I'm making a specific single.php template. It's using a jQuery slider to slide from one post to the next. In order to show the right post first, I have to use 2 loops - one to call the first single post, and then another loop to call all the other posts in the category.
This I do like this (might be a bit mucky, I'm no PHP guru)
<ul id="tour-items"> <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <li> <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2> <?php the_content(); ?> </li> <?php endwhile; endif; ?> <?php $briefingsposts = new WP_Query(array( 'caller_get_posts' => 1, 'category_name' => Briefings, 'offset' => 1 )); ?> <?php while ($briefingsposts->have_posts()) : $briefingsposts->the_post(); ?> <li> <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2> <?php the_content(); ?> </li> <?php endwhile; ?> </ul>
However, if the first post is a sticky post, it's repeating in the category loop despite the
'offset' => 1 which I assume is because it's doing it's sticky behaviour and sticking itself to the top.
I've tried using
'caller_get_posts' => 1 in the array but it doesn't seem to make any difference at all. I dont want to exclude sticky posts, just make them behave as normal. Is there a way that might work within my queries?
