I'd like to put a single post in a header for address/phone number, and also a single post in a footer for the copyright/disclaimer. I'd like to use posts so that these can be edited as posts, not as php files which have to be ftp'd. This allows ALL content to be available as posts.
This would require three loops, obviously. I've read about using multiple loops at http://codex.wordpress.org/The_Loop#Multiple_Loops and while I think I understand what's being presented, the example shown at "Multiple Loops in Action" (down the page a little bit), seems to be set up for doing two loops within the main content divs if I read it right.
I tried the examples of a single specific category loop in the header and the header post wouldn't show, but the page text did show. I didn't try a loop for the footer, yet.
I'd like some advice about being able to put a single post in the header (with a unique category called "address") and in the footer (with it's own unique category) while still having regular content on the page. I plan on using pages for the content, so no blog page using index.php is being planned at the moment. But if a blog page was to be added later, I'd need these items to work.
