Why would you query single.php like this? It’s normal for single.php to just show one post.
You used the wrong quotes in $myPosts->query(’posts_per_page=1’);
change it to this: $myPosts->query('posts_per_page=1');
hey thanks much Keesie, had no idea there are different types of single quotes. But how did you get the non slanted ones? also I’m really just trying to experiment with different parameters though I take your point.
