    Here is the code i'm using, but i'm getting the date from the post next to it.

    <?php
    $post_id = 707; // substitute the actual post ID for "2"
    $my_post = get_post($post_id);
    
    echo "<div class='date'>";
    
    echo "<span class='month'>";
    the_time('M');
    echo "</span>";
    
    echo "<span class='day'>";
    the_date('d');
    echo "</div>";
    
    echo "<div class='blog_post_content'>";
    
    echo "<h2 class='title'>Case Study: $my_post->post_title</h2>";
    echo "<p>$my_post->post_excerpt</p>";
    
    echo "<a href='?page_id=707 ' class='read_more'>Continue reading...</a>";
    
    echo "</div>";
    
    ?>

    hmm. Thats all I have pertaining to $my_post. Below is everything above the query

    <?php $home_page_builder = $data['home_page_builder']['enabled'];
    if ($home_page_builder){
    
        foreach ($home_page_builder as $key=>$value) {
    
            switch($key) {
    
                case 'portfolio':
    
                    if( $data['portfolio_home_style'] == "style1" ){
                    ?>
    
                        <div class="portfolio_home">
    
                            <div class="container">

    Sorry, brainfart, it's coming from the get_post().

    Where are you getting the 707? You're saying that the template tags used after it are not retrieving information from the post with id 707?

    707 is the id of the page i'm pulling the excerpt, title and date from. But for some reason my code is pulling the date from the post/query next to it. Which are posts, this block has it's own query because it's pulling a particular page.

    Try putting a wp_reset_postdata(); above the $post_id = 707; line.

    Beyond that, I don't know, I've never experienced any issues with template tags where they were pulling correct information some of the time and incorrect information other times.

    Thanks for sending that over. I gave that a try and it's throwing the following error:

    Fatal error: Function name must be a string

    Try copy pasting the following over the relevant lines:

    <?php
    wp_reset_postdata();
    $post_id = 707; // substitute the actual post ID for "2"
