    Here is the code I am using for my post.

    <?php $recent = new WP_Query("cat=1&showposts=4"); while($recent->have_posts()) : $recent->the_post();?>
    
    <div class="post">
    <h2 class="postTitle"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    <div class="postMeta">
    <span class="date"><?php the_time('M.d, Y') ?></span> in
    <span class="filed"><?php the_category(', '); ?></span>
    <span class="commentcount"><?php comments_popup_link('Leave a Comment', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?></span>
    </div>
    <div class="postContent"><?php the_content(); ?></div>
    </div> <!-- Closes Post -->
    
    <?php endwhile; ?>

    but if I try to add

    <?php else; ?>

    it throws an error. Where am I going wrong

    Thanks

    Not exactly sure what you mean, but I think you want to format it more like a traditional WordPress loop:

    <?php $recent = new WP_Query("cat=1&showposts=4"); 
    
    if ($recent->have_posts()) :
    
    while($recent->have_posts()) : $recent->the_post();?>
    
    <div class="post">
    <h2 class="postTitle"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    <div class="postMeta">
    <span class="date"><?php the_time('M.d, Y') ?></span> in
    <span class="filed"><?php the_category(', '); ?></span>
    <span class="commentcount"><?php comments_popup_link('Leave a Comment', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?></span>
    </div>
    <div class="postContent"><?php the_content(); ?></div>
    </div> <!-- Closes Post -->
    
    <?php endwhile;
    
    else :
    
    //put your else code here
    
    endif; ?>

    peace~

    Thanks, I did that first and added the wp-query for the category before the loop and all worked fine. I have another theme that uses this variable type and was trying to include it.

    Thanks
