I could really use some help with this....I think I have it narrowed down to the culprit, but don't know exactly how to fix this - in trying to set up the new site to look identical to the old site, I had a listing on the left sidebar with this code:
<?php query_posts('showposts=15&orderby=title&order=ASC&cat=3'); ?>
<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
<li><a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"> > <?php the_title(); ?></a></li>
<?php endwhile; ?>
This creates the "menu" which is a list of links to the posts in the category (3) that I want, however, I think this is what is messing with what is displayed on the single.php and page.php pages.
I tried changing this to use get_posts instead of query_posts, which includes all posts even though I'm limiting it to a single category (a problem all by itself), but it does allow the actual page or post content to be displayed correctly, but changes the menu on the left when you go to a single post or page - the menu then becomes the link to just that page that you're on.
So what I need is a way to list the post links (titles) in the left sidebar, restricted to a single category, and still have the_post() work correctly when you click on one of those links to go to a post or page....
I hope this makes sense
